  1. I can't get my LC475 working on 512x384 on my TFT. I always end up 640x400 in a strange mode that auto-image-correcture does not work.
  2. There might be another way to fix this on later macs. The AGI Versions 1.5 do work on later macs (LC475) in Black and White. Color does not work. But the LC has ROM's that can be taken out. So if somebody whould change the rom from 32bit quickdraw to 24bit quickdraw, everything would be fine. But more likely a software-fix would be the better option. Don't know why the never did that. Is it that hard to do this?

    Dip switches are correct, but it the software seems to be the problem...
  4. So I will go for the IIgs versions instead.

    How to make disks for a IIGS?

    ADTpro does not work on MacOS7/8/9, MacADT does not work with IIgs images. So the best way is to copy diskimages via serial connection (I have PM7300<>AppleIIgs) and write the disks on the IIgs? Perhaps transferring smaller files (.shk) would be best? Any ideas? thx!

    Hi there. I own some Doscards and I got all to work except one. This one is making me nuts. Quadra700 = 68K/PPC-Card and Nubus DosCard 386dx working 7.1.3 PM6100/66 = 486DX2/66 Doscard PM7300/500 = 166Mhz PCI Doscard But the OrangePC 620 in my G3-Desktop is driving me nuts. My K6 400 is always recognized as 256Mhz, CD-Rom is found but the win9x boot-cd always says no cd in drive. I read that these orangeCards are mostly 100% configurated from the driver-software, not the bios. I saw pictures from my card when the AMD K6 is 100% recognized...they seem to have software version 3.1.2 working, but I all have and ever found was 3.4.x and these software does not work for the cpu-detection and not for the cd-ram drives. Even changing the IDE to a Apple branded SCSI-CDrom did not work either. I think it's better to go with the orangepc for win9x then the pentium166 card on my PM7300.
  7. Very interesting topic. I bought a LC1 in order to play the old sierra games and wondered that they even with system6 do not run without glitches. Now I know why. Ony guy with a q700 played SQ2 on youtube but as you probably have noticed there are glitches above the gamewindow. what a pity that these fantastic games never got decent patches to run them on 68k and perhaps on ppc as well.

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    Hi there interesting topic. I have trouble with my OPC-620. It does not recognize the K6 Processor and also does not use the cdrom. The card is in a g3-desktop. I will upgrade to g4-zif if that is possible and does not collide with the opc-620.
  9. No, DeusEX works with 8MB Voodoo2 Card.
  10. With 7.5.3 it worked! Thx!
  11. ...but it does not work yet. OS 7.6.1 is installed, a reboot starts very short, but after that I the the Image of a Disk with a "?". Any idea, what went wrong? Greetings Doc
  12. ...it seems to be that you are right. using tiger with usb to ide and unchecking os9 drivers leeds a a initializing drive while boot os 7.61 cd on the 630dos, ...currently installing 7.61...hdd shows 18,5gb free...os 7.6.1 installer says 2gb free, 70mb required...we will see. Thx for the advice!
  13. Is there any bootable floppy-disk or CD-Image that is capable of recognizing non apple branded ide-drives with a Performa 630 Dos.
  14. Hi, that's a tricky one. I got a 630DOS recently, but mine has no HardDrive. I recognized that is has an IDE cable, so there must be an IDE Harddrive connected to it. I put a very silent 20GB HDD in it. OS 7.6.1 CD booted but does not recognize the harddrive. I got a 4,5GB Apple Branded Drive vom a G3 B&W, but as you wrote I first get a Error Code PPC.... and after that always a "sad mac". My FWB Tools are too old and so they only support SCSI Drives, other/newer Versions are to big to get them on a floppy disc. I have no clue how to do it. Yesterday I found that: http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/macintosh-os-75 But the 630DOSCD does not boot either....ARGH!
