I saw that this was conducted elsewhere on the forums, but I thought it would be interesting to conduct it here, too.

What's on your Apple II?

For me, it's a huge mish-mash. I have a bunch of programs, most of which I have no idea about. :)

They include:

*AppleWorks (three copies of different versions.)
*Graphics programs (Interior design, MousePaint, etc.)
*Geology programs (I haven't tested them yet)
*Games
*DOS 3.3 (of course)
*Others which are slipping my mind. :)

What do you have, and what programs are your favorites?
 

DOS lives on!!

The main ones I have is Softdisk and Uptime. I do also like the Wheel of Fortune and the Jeopardy game. Also along with the "Brain Teasers and Ear Pleasers" disk.

Cool. You have a Jeopardy game? That must be real fun to play, even though the clues may be a little outdated. :)

I started counting my Apple II programs for this message, but I stopped when I reached 100 and I was only up to the "B" disks. Must be at least 1,000 disk images on the CF card in one of my //es and lots more actual programs. I've only got a couple hundred actual floppies.

It was fun going through those programs, and maybe that will inspire me to go back and run some for the first time in years. Like most users, I have a few favs from my collection:

Apple Bowling
Apple Invader
Appleoids
Battle Chess
Bill Budge Trilogy
Choplifter
Club Casino
County Carnival
Crossword Magic
Falcons
Frogger
Jeopardy
Mario Bros
Ms Pacman
Pacman
Pong (was this the 1st PC game? I still love it.)
Raster Blaster (by the Master -- Bill Budge)
Sargon III
Star Trek
Stickybear Bop (and others in that series)
Warlords
Wheel of Fortune
Where in the World is Carmen... (and others in that series)
Who killed Roger Rabbit?
Zenith

Cool! You've got quite a few of the classics in there (Pong, Pacman, Frogger, etc.) and lots of others I'll have to check out.

You have Pong? I've been looking for that, is it a disk image?

I have a version of Pong on a .dsk file (in which I modified the BASIC program for keyboard-only paddle control, added score-keeping, and corrected the problem of the ball breaking through the walls). In one of my boxes of diskettes, I have my modified version and I should also have another version or two.

I was honestly starting to believe that Pong was never ported to the Apple II. Guess I was wrong...

Any chance you could upload your .dsk file?

I'm starting a resources thread in the group.

Sure, but I'm new here, so I don't know how and where to upload files yet.

I don't know how to either... :(

Do you have a service like SkyDrive or Dropbox you could use?

I use both, but I'd prefer to just upload to this forum, if we can identify a way to do that. Or I could email the .dsk file to you, and you can do whatever you want with it from that point on.

Having a CFFA3000 plugged into my GS I've got several 32MB images with lots of GS specific software and then lots of 5.25 disk images. I can't even begin to name all the software I've got on it. For my IIc+ I've got Flight Simulator II with all the scenery disks, several RPG's, Appleworks, Publish It! 4, Silvern Castle, Star Trek First Contact (the shareware version written in Z Basic) and lots of other games.

I've got tons of Apple II software downloaded from various web sites that I intend to move back to real disks for the IIc+. I'm using both the CFFA3000 and ADTPro, by David Schmidt, to transfer the images back to real disks. When Rich adds directories to the CFFA3000 firmware I'll really load up the disk images on the 2GB flash drive I have for it.

That's a pretty nice setup you've got there. I'm going to start using ADTPro too, once I get my //c up and running.

Glad to hear your CFFA board works as well in a IIGS as mine does in a //e, since I'm about to embark on a project to do a //e to IIGS upgrade. Maybe I should start a thread in the regular forum.
