    IIc and Floppy Emu

    i have gone through and tried different baud rates with the same modem setting (with different baud rates) as well as choosing some that say generic but I just cant get any text to appear. Im gonna reach out to the wimodem guy to see if he has any ideas.

    IIc and Floppy Emu

    Okay so I downloaded a different version of ProTerm 3.1 and got it to work with the set up like so: Emu connected as external disk boot my floppy of System Utilities > exit that program > set floppy emu to prodos 3.0.1 > run startup,d2 > (in prodos) set path to /pt3/pt3.system > ProTerm 3.1 boots Now I am having an issue trying to get my modem seen for lack of a better word. So in the ProTerm modem set up I tried the following: Apple Modem 300 - initialization blank Null Modem Driver - initialization blank Null Modem Driver (RTS/CTS) - initialization blank Hayes Smart Modem 300 - initialization blank / ATX0 (I think that was what it was, it was the default) All got me in and the top bar showed 300 baud but when trying to go to the terminal I get a blinking cursor but cant type anything it just flashes.

    IIc and Floppy Emu

    okay I have connected it to the connector on the inside and some programs are working just fine. however proterm 2.2 still says "proterm was not installed on this machine. press return to verify your hardware configuration, or pres esc to continue" but after hitting return it seems just fine (as in it loads and takes me to the next screen havent tested with wimodem yet). proterm 3 is just strange: booting with proterm3(boot) gives the following on screen: 0914- A=0C X=FF Y=02 P=74 S=D3 then i have a cursor hitting return will just return a EE then return again gets 0400- A0 A0 A0 A0 A0 A0 hitting return again will give a similar but different response. with proterm3(program) selected and rebooting i get: 3F24- A=BD X=FF Y=02 P=B5 S=C2 then the cursor and it cycles through the same info as the boot disk starting with EE

    IIc and Floppy Emu

    should have mentioned i am booting with system utilities v 2.1.1 a disk i have okay new wrinkle i got applewin to do some testing and if i try to catalog proterm3.1 i can see it just fine in applewin but on my iic it says "i/o error" note: proterm 2.2 locks up the same way as my iic in applewin

    IIc and Floppy Emu

    okay made some progress: I put prodos 3.1.1 on the sd card > put proterm 2.2 on sd card > turned on iic with emu > run prodos 3.1.1 > it asks for path to file typed "/proterm/proterm.system > it starts to load but then i get a message that says something like "proterm has not been installed on this computer. press esc to continue. press ret to check hardware" > no matter what i press it just seems to lock up this is where i am currently stuck.....

    IIc and Floppy Emu

    i have the emu set up as a 5.25 drive but when I select PR#7 i get a message that says "no device connected". doing a catalog,d2 will list the files but not sure how to run them (prolly syntax). For example in the prodos v1.9.dsk file that was on the emu i tried "load launcher.system" but I get back "file type mismatch". Is that because some programs absolutely need to be launched from "disk 1"? on other files, oregon trail 1.do for example, if i try to get the catalog i only get a message that says "I/O error". Sorry if these are really easy issues first time using apple II OS.

    IIc and Floppy Emu

    cool thanks unfortunately i have rom 255 which apparently doesnt work as a smart port disk. i did find this on bmow blog havent given it a shot yet but fingers crossed.. Andru has devised a method for booting the //c from the Floppy Emu while it’s connected externally and configured in 5.25 inch emulation mode. In other words, it’s a method for booting from Disk 2 – something that’s normally impossible. This is great for the scenario where you want to make a bootable ProDOS floppy, and you’ve got a Floppy Emu, but no real floppies with a bootable DOS. Now it’s possible to boot from the Emu externally, then put a blank floppy in the //c’s internal drive and copy ProDOS to it. Connect Floppy Emu to the //c’s external disk port, and turn on the computer. The //c will display a CHECK DISK DRIVE error. Select ProDOS v1.9 from the Floppy Emu’s disk selection menu. Press CTRL+RESET on the //c keyboard to get a BASIC prompt At the ] prompt, type CALL -151 and press RETURN At the * prompt, press CTRL+E, then press RETURN You’ll see a line of text like M=00 A=08 X=00 Y=00 P=00 S=B7. If the line of text begins with M, then type :0 E0 60 1 and press RETURN Else if the line of text begins with A, then type :E0 60 1 and press RETURN Type C60BG and press RETURN The //c will immediately begin booting ProDOS from Drive 2! Andru developed this method by examining code from Apple //c ROM version 255, which includes this feature natively as PR#7. The above monitor hacking makes it possible to do the same thing on other ROM versions of the Apple //c. this last part about rom 255 makes me think that PR#7 would work but still a apple ii noob so figuring it out might be tough...

    IIc and Floppy Emu

    Ok I feel like a total noob but I dont understand how the Emu works with my IIc. Never used apple II before so even basics are escaping me, I set up the Emu as a smartport drive (as I saw something about that working for IIc) but not sure how to see files on it. My goal is to get proterm installed and running so that I can BBS on the machine. Any help or direction would be a huge help and much appreciated.

    Troubleshooting SCSI2SD in SE/30.

    Try changing your scsi ID number to something other than 0. I was having issues with mine not booting but once I changed to ID 1 it worked with no issue.

    IIc Monitor Issue

    okay guys haha I figured it out. so after doing the recap and putting the monitor back together 95% or so didnt want to put the shroud and handle on if I was gonna have a cap blow or need to make some more adjustments. anyway after it didnt work yesterday I spent all night thinking about it and reading service manuals and schematics and had a few things I wanted to check today. I turned the machine and was just gonna start to open it up again and I noticed something, the cable that goes to a voltage regulator near the transformer was not actually plugged in it was just resting near it (pretty much right on top of it). the wire memory placed it so close to the connection that I didnt notice. anyway I plugged it in and it fired right up! man what a silly mistake but Im so happy now . So yea bottom line a recap fixed it so if you have a similar issue just recap and then make sure you plug everything back in haha.

    IIc Monitor Issue

    so I just did a recap all except C102 47uf NP 16v and C515 4uf 25v as i ran out of stock on those. turned it on but no change, it powers up, turning the 3 pots on the back and the contrast knob has no effect and the screen is just black. I also put some contact cleaner on the pots which helped them turn nicer but no effect to the out put. I confirmed that the video in jack was getting good contact to the board and wire coming in too. Again when I turn it off I get the flash of a typical crt turning off. getting stuck any tips on what to try next?

    IIc Monitor Issue

    Hi guys, I recently got a IIc the computer is working just fine no issues (knock on wood) I can hook it up to a crt tv and use the computer no problem. however I also got the IIc monitor and I turned it on for the first time today. lets go back just a bit, I bought it on ebay and it was working however before the seller shipped he tested it and told me that he got a wavy line on the screen but no picture. we worked out a deal so I got a small discount as I still wanted it. fastforward to today I turned on the screen and booted up the computer and there was nothing on the screen, I turned up the contrast all the way and I could just make out the image on the screen but it was also sort of wavy. I tried adjusting the the video cable to make sure it had a good connection but nothing really changed, I messed with the pots but about that time the picture totally disappeared and I could not get it back. I have tried power cycling the monitor but have not gotten an image back. When I turn the screen off I do get that typical crt screen flash and line in the center of the screen for a quick second so it seems that part is working. Any ideas?

    mac classic ii and a wimodem

    so as far as the locking up the system i removed a few extensions not sure which one it was but on the load screen it would lock up during the quicktime extension. that would allow me to have the modem on outside of zterm but if i opened zterm and connected to a bbs then quit the system would still lock up. I then changed the dcd operating mode in zterm at&c0 (it was set to 1) then i connected to a bbs disconnected quit zterm and had no issue with slow down so i think that fixed that problem. now i just got to get irc figured out.

    mac classic ii and a wimodem

    okay that seemed to help some before if i turned on the wimodem the system would crawl now its not perfect but much faster. so now my issue is in IRC when i try to connect to a server i get a freeppp window that pops up trying to make a connection but i know that i dont have any settings set up. anyone familiar with that set up or an alternative?
