  1. I've always enjoyed communicating with other Apple II/e enthusiasts. This is one video that I'm sure you guys have memories wrapped up in. How many of us played these games every chance we got when in school back in the day? Please share memories, I'd love to hear them. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
  2. Hello everyone, I finally managed to pick up an Androbot Topo II robot last year, but I am lacking in the hardware/software areas to try and get this thing to work using an Apple IIe. If you are reading this post and happen to have a spare Toposoft diskette and Topo II IR transmitter with the adapter or happen to know someone who might, I would like to get in contact and discuss with you. The transmitter looks like the hexagon shaped device in the lower right of the picture attached, and the diskette loops like your standard floppy disk that would go into an Apple IIe computer. Thank you for your reading, and I hope to hear back!
  3. In the latest episode from my channel I discuss probably the first computer most of us ever worked with: the Apple IIe. When did you first learn about this computer? What are your favorite programs/games? I'd like to know. Thanks!!
  4. Hi, I have an odd issue with an Apple IIe I bought about a month ago. It came with a working Disk II drive, and a controller that I was told by the seller that only worked on Channel 1. As a response to this I ended up getting 3 more controllers (dont ask). And after using all 3 to trouble shoot each other, I got 3 working fully, and ordered some chips to fix the 4th (not the original). To test, I am using a floppy Emu unit, with diagnostic disks on, and the Disc II drive, for channel 2. So the chips turned up and I swapped one into the broken card. Tested, nothing, so I took some chips out of the other cards, swapped in, and re-seated the new chip. Turned on the Apple and It did not power up correctly. The power LED on the mboard pulsed, and the keyboard light flickered. I checked the card and found that the new chip had not inserted one entire side of its pins, with the other inserted correctly. Erk! So I re-seated the chip, and tested again, and the floppy Emu booted. Phew. Back on solid land. At least I thought so, but... I then plugged the Disc II into the second channel on the fixed card. Booted. and Now the Floppy Emu unit would not boot, showed an error. Turned off, removed drive from channel 2, booted, fine. How odd. I thought, OK, there must be a deeper issue with this card, not just the one chip was faulty. So I now try the other 3, tested working cards. Same probem. So, now I removed the Floppy Emu from channel 1, and plugged the Disc II drive into it. And booted. Drive spins up, but never boots into the game. I tested this with 3 known working floppies. So.. to get the authentic feel of the Apple IIe I had bought Duo Disk unit. Which was shipped as working, but I had not tested it yet. So it came with an IO controller. I plugged this in, removed the Disc II controller. Same issue, physical drive spins, but it never boots. Now, some more supporting evidence. With the Duo Disk unit, I received a spare Apple Serial Card. So I tested this with (ADTPro) at least, that was the plan. I booted my PC, connected it to the card, made sure the cards dip switches and modem config were the right way. Plugged in, booted. Typed IN#2, pressed enter. And instead of it just going to another prompt. Instead the cursor went to the top of the display, and when I pressed CTRL + A, which would put it into serial connection mode, nothing happened. So, now I knew something REALLY odd is going on. I put my original KNOWN working Apple Serial Card in, and tried the same. Same issue, it does not work, as it had before. OK, so... Has anyone else encountered issues like this? The machine works superficially. I tested the ROMS, CPU and Memmory, all good. It runs at least the Diag software fine, from the Floppy Emu. But, I now CANNOT boot ANY physical floppy drive, and I cannot use the serial card. Further diagnostic info. I tested the Duo Disk unit in the Diag software, it showed an error, saying the drive speed was wrong. When I tested its speed, it showed it being between 295 to 298 RPM. The correct value being 300. I then tested my Disk II unit. It was kind of worse, no errors, or anything showing. And when I tested its speed, it would not show. So my guess is... when I put that chip in, in one side of the socket, but totally missing the other, something shorted, and damaged my PSU. Because of this, it is now running, but outputting the wrong voltages, maybe.. Im getting a Multi-Meter this weekend, So I'll be able to test this idea then. Alternatively, some chip, or other element, that powers the cards slots, is damaged, and this is delivering wonky power, to low, too high, who knowss. Its really odd that the machine seems to work in general, it processes, no memmory errors. But, both serial AND floppy drive units do not work, even though they are receiving power. Please, any help most appreciated. And my back story is. I neved originally owned an Apple II. Im from the UK, so I had an Atari 2600, then Dragon 32, then C64. The Apple II was too expensive in the UK at the time. But.. In 1985 I got a C64 floppy drive, plus £100 of games (it was s bundle) and one was Ultima III (Exodus) which I loved, and I never got to play Ultima I and II. So, I decided to get a real retro machine, BUT one I never actually had, and to try out the original Ultima I, II and III, as they were all developed on the Apple II.
  5. Keys are: cursor arrows - move cursor 0-9,A-F - choose color space - plot by current color R - fill screen with current color P - pick color under cursor Z - (freeZe) - draw plots Save/Load coming soon. seems there are no routines for disk operations.
