Apple II thread
« on: January 07, 2019, 06:51:26 am »
My brother cleaned his room and this thing ended up on my desk.


It's an Apple IIc, complete with a green monochrome screen, a printer and a bunch of floppies. (Yes, the screen is actually plugged to a DVD player, but I'm surprised how watchable my DVDs are on that :P)

Todo list:

- Learn Applesoft BASIC (I did a circle wow)
- Build a serial cable for communication and ADTPro. I contacted the guy who maintains ADTPro and sells those cables and shipping is prohibitively expensive (as usual) so better make my own, so more updates on that soon.
- Watch some DVDs
- Figure out what's going on with the floppy drive?
- Try this thing out, if and when it's gonna come out. A friend of mine is planning to back their Kickstarter thing when they're going around to make it, so yeah, we're planning to have some fun with that.

So yeah. @Caleb Hansberry I know you like this, so Apple II thread.

Yeet

Yes, I think vintage computers are very cool! Nice looking game demo. Considering how restrictive the graphics hardware is, my favorite part is the sound (about on par  with any 6502 system unless you have a mockingboard).

It's a DVD player >.> I like the trail it leaves behind, though.

But yeah, that's what my friend told me about today, sound should be pretty good.
