Following the instructions here: https://subethasoftware.com/2018/02/28/wire-up-your-own-rs-232-wifi-modem-for-under-10-using-esp8266-and-zimodem-firmware/
I built the 4 pin version. A cheap option as I had the node MCU board already. Connecting the board to a PC via USB allows me to set baud rates and wifi info. However I cannot communicate to it via the Apple. Connecting via SSC using null modem. These are the serial ports: HiLetgo 5pcs RS232 to TTL Converter Module COM Serial Port Board MAX3232 MAX232CSE https://a.co/d/gukRBqM
This is the null modem adaptor DB9 Null Modem Adapter Male to Male 2 Pack https://a.co/d/f9dTCTI
Connected this to the SSC VIA 25 To 9 pin cable. I get no connection in proterm or ASCII express. Cannot type AT commands. Running Zimodem firmware as instructed above.
Any ideas? Any other folks using this or another wifi serial adaptor? I'd like to figure it out but willing to buy another wifi adaptor. Would rather not use Ethernet card as I'd like to use this in other computers.
Brutal Deluxe Software is proud to release Le manoir du Dr Genius (The Manor of Dr Genius) for the Apple II.
Originally written by Laurent Benes, and published by Loriciels in 1983 for the Oric computer, we got their approval to release our Apple II port in both French and English languages.
Enjoy one of the first French adventure software ever published @ http://www.brutaldeluxe.fr/products/apple2/drgenius/
there was an english program for learning french. it had a lot of graphics; i remember that there were different places that one visited, including martinique....anyone know the name of this program?
OK so my Dad had an Apple II when I was in Kindergarten. I remember there was a game that he had where you were a ninja or karate style fighter. Thats all I really remember. I''ve tried to find it but can't. Does anyone know what game this may be?
Hey! I recently got a Apple IIe from a relative and it has no power cable. I've already ordered a replacement PSU from ReActiveMicro, but they don't even sell a power cable. I would prefer to have a cable from a IIe instead of buying a equal voltage cable online. Any idea on where to source one? Thanks in advance.
Anyone know if there is a 3D print model for the Briel Replica 1 TE board? I found this one for the Replica 1 Plus but it is going to be too small for my Replica 1 TE.
Here we have an Apple II plus motherboard. All chips have been tested and show as good.
I’ve confirmed the ROM F8 is good I’ve confirmed the first row of RAM is good. Again all LS74 chips test good
However per the video you’ll see I’m getting no love!
Lower light comes on. Drive does not spin when it’s plugged in
9334 chip is good.
Any thoughts on troubleshooting this?
I started up my Apple IIe and it's printing garbage to the screen.
I reset it and it says "unable to start up from memory card."
When I move the memory card to a different location, in this case, slot 5, the computer boots to "Apple \\e". I type PRINT PEEK(64447)+PEEK(64448)*256 and it returns 57344. When I put the card back into slot 7, it says unable to start up from memory card. PRINT PEEK(64447)+PEEK(64448)*256 still returns 57344. So, in slot 5 the computer doesn't even see the card. In slot 7, it sees it but is unable to load from it. Is there something wrong with the card, from looking at it? Can anyone identify this card?
I'm having some difficulty figuring out card/disk order in Virtual ][ (latest release). I have the Disk II card in slot 6 with two floppies. I have tried the SCSI II card in both slot 7 and in slot 3. In slot 7, it sees floppy #1 as the primary drive and boots from there. In slot 3, it sees the OmniDisk as the primary drive - but I'm having problems booting from the OmniDrive. I tried a bootable .2mg disk image that I swear worked last night, and it never got beyond the screen announcing the DOS version.
EDITED to add: At least I think the disk order is changing with the SCSI II disk placement. It won't let me boot from floppy when the SCSI card is higher in the slot order than the DiskII controller.
My questions are:
Does anyone have a high resolution scan of the gameboard from the old Apple ][ board game Chivalry? (See pic)
I'd love to print it out and play with my little girl. (I got this image from this ebay listing)
This listing looks to be in good condition for anyone who's interested in collecting. I would have loved to have seen the game pieces up close too. I had a pirated version of this game as a kid so I never actually got a good look at the actual game components before now.
I have been looking all over the internet for the manual and a copy of the disk images that came with and are for the Applied Engineering RamWorks II. If anyone can help that would be great!
This is driving me insane. So I was born in '80, and we had an Apple IIe when I was really young bc my dad won it in a raffle at his school. He had some kind of subscription in the mid/late 80s, maybe into the early 90s where he was sent a floppy disk (I think monthly) including little games and informational programs. (For instance I remember seeing a presentation about the concept of "windows" and just completely failing to understand its meaning or importance, lol, but it stuck with me for some reason.)
Does this ring a bell for anyone, and particularly does anyone remember the name of the subscription/company so that I can look it up? My Google-fu is failing me thus far.
I know the Apple II was not popular or well-marketed outside North America, particularly in Europe, but I was wondering if there are any Europe and/or UK-based fan/collector scenes for the system and perhaps even owned one in the 80s?
When PRINTing a character at the bottom right corner of the screen, it always issues a line feed (or whatever the term is), even if I use a semicolon. Here is an example of what I mean:
My question is: is there any way to stop this from happening? It seems like there would be a simple solution but I've been looking through various documents and manuals and have found nothing.
Hi everyone I need help with the type of power supply to cannobalise for an apple 2c I have. I have 2 power supplys that I can modify for this:
Which one should I use?
I got this very dirty disk caddy with an apple iie I doubt there are anythin unique but im worrying about trashing my drives.
Some time ago, I replaced all the ROMs on my APPLE II plus with a single ROM board. There is an opensource project for this (see link). That was my salvation, my old ROMs didn't work well anymore. Now the APPLE runs stable again and I am very happy.
I have a few boards left from this project. If anyone is interested, please send me a private message. I will be glad to help out.
I went through a mystery box again, and found another interesting card. I think it's a real-time clock. This time the name (
TIME ][) is more descriptive. Also, the presence of the battery is somewhat of a giveaway. I wonder how it keeps time though. There's a small crystal at the bottom left corner, that goes into the M5832 IC, which I don't know what that is. The other ICs are all 74 series logic. Maybe the 74LS174 D flip-flops are used as counters or something?
Here's another mystery card. It has an DA converter, and what looks to be a space for a speaker? This comes from an Apple 2 clone, and the two pins on the top left of the pictures were connected to wires going outside the case. Maybe the DA converter has something to do with sound?
The previous owner left a paper note on the inside of the lid of the apple, with descriptions for each of the cards. I only saw that after removing the cards, and I don't remember which slot this was in. Most of the descriptions are obviously not it (ie disk controller etc), but there are two candidates: "synt. de voies modem" and "carte horloge parole" (I'm in Quebec, hence the French).
It's probably not the one that contains the word modem, but the "synt" caught my eye. The other, "carte horloge parole", which means something like "talking clock card" could be it. But this card isn't a clock, so maybe through software, and this was only the sound output?
Going through some more of my mystery boxes, I came across a couple of cards, all with empty sockets, and a wire with a button attached. Does anyone have an idea what these could be?
