    Things to Do With Your Networked Vintage Mac

    There are still a bunch of active Hotline servers out there! I recently got a ton of Mac-related text files for CQII BBS from Antelope's Abode.

    Apple iigs setup

    Thanks for the free advertising! ;) I still prefer the original IIgs monitor - love the form factor.

    USB4VC adds support to early Macs (use USB and bluetooth devices through a rpi)

    Very cool - that would make Dark Castle actually winnable!

    Good first Apple II?

    I'd suggest the IIgs - it will run most of the old Apple II stuff and it's also the most Mac-like. With an Uthernet card and PiSCSI, you can share files between your vintage Macs and IIgs and also print to a modern printer over your network with both.

    Hermes BBS install

    Nope - I could only find 6 door games that would work with v3.5 or greater, but there are at least 16 door games that work with versions prior to 3.5. What I was describing above was how to install a stable version of v3.5.11 Hermes II on a 68K Mac. In my search for door games, I also found...

    You can download them from my Mac file server at afp://cqbbs.ddns.net under the Mac BBS Host Software folder.

    Hermes BBS install

    I'm using the same v2.x of cbmstuff's WiModem232. You need to make sure that your cable is wired correctly. A bunch of the cables on eBay aren't truly high-speed even though they say they are: This is what your node and init string should look like (with proper serial port selected)...

    NuBus LocalTalk cards?

    That's what I'm planning on using it for. Where can I find this driver?

    I'm thinking about getting one of these cards. Where were you able to find the drivers?

    Hermes BBS install

    After fiddling around with this some more, I was able to get the latest beta (3.5.11) to run stably on my IIci with TCP connections. I installed 3.5.10 and used the existing System Prefs file (under Hermes Files -> Shared Files) from a previous 3.5.2 installation. Just don't copy over the...

    Netatalk 2.2.8 Released

    Thank you so much! Netatalk remains a must-have for me for moving files between my vintage and modern Macs so it's great to see it still being updated.

    Hermes BBS install

    Fast forward a few years later and I started playing around with Hermes II again! I tested out all the versions I could find - 1.0, 3.0, 3.11, 3.5.2, 3.5.9, and 3.5.11. I also dug up as many Hermes II door games as I could find. I'm posting here so it's at least documented somewhere. Here's...

    What machine is better for playing Apple II games? (IIgs or LC+IIe card)

    I'd go with the IIgs, and then you can play IIgs games too!
