  1. Hey, I have written a nice program that allows the user to plot into the screen and when I click on D for done it suppose to store the design in a file as combination of plot x,y and color=<number>. But I do not want to do it this way as it could end up been thousands and thousands of lines as I am plotting complex graphics. How do I convert the plotted image in the screen as either binary picture (stored in hard drive) or as combination of read and data instead to be plotted as sprite in the screen in BASIC? Is there a book or something I can read that helps me to do this as
  2. AH!!!! Ok! Ah well. I guess for games that refuse to work on apple //gs and I really want to play it. I will run it in AppleWin then
  3. I am trying very hard to understand what you typed there. Sorry. I may read it again later and try to understand it, however...there are many apple // 8 bit games not working in my apple //gs ROM 03 though. Some even include text adventure games but will work instantly in appleWin Emulator.
  4. You know what I really like is have a card you can put in any of the spare slots that have ROM01 of apple //gs and cancel ROM03 (while the card is in there) for backward compatibility being better and anytime you can disable the card by a switch behind it if you wish to return back to rom03 That is something I would buy in a heart beat.
  5. Is it possible the bug in ROM03 could also be the reason why so many Apple // games not working? Even a text adventure game seems to fail in my apple //gs ROM 03 but works on AppleWin emulator.
  6. I want the ROM 4! Will it work on my ROM 4 motherboard? What am I expecting with the ROM 4 and what about compatibility? Would I be able to go straight with System interface like Mac 68k and be able to boot into DOS inside the OS directly for Apple // games? I would like to turn my Apple //gs into Mac heheh!
  7. not at all. I have picked a successful method. Call Mac laptop and it works...it instantly read the SD and showed the partition. Just like that! - flicks finger - it even ran half of the application in my PPC laptop like that by running OS 9 emulator in the background. So if I want to continue playing my game from my mac lc 475 at the bus...I take the SD..hook it in my laptop and bingo.
  8. I never said there is anything wrong with using OSX to be a server for Mac 68k. I am just saying I have not being able to get my Mac 68k online no matter what I did and it have an ethernet card. I am saying it failed in attempting to use Apple CD 300. I am saying it failed in attempting to get it online using my ethernet card..no matter what I do it fails and I cannot get it online and it have the worst TCP/IP configuration software on planet Earth using MacTCP. I have to guess what 24948556 equals to as xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx meaning if I wanted to have a it have
  9. Nothing..not even silver CD works. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. All I have is taking space, heavy weight and nice green LED. I aint having a big metal device just for green LED. Nu uh. I am selling it. I am done with it. Doooooone! I just love the idea of having a mechanical media device with motor and open try that uses mechanical motor to open it and close it and then use the CDs to read with it. I have all these CD's in home and wanted to give them a purpose as in my PC I have blue ray burner and never used it for years. But alas...I guess that did not go well. So no...done...- sh
  10. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!! I am an idiot!! I JUST REMEMBERED??! I HAVE AN G4 IBOOK MAC OS X!!! Why don't i just hook the SD in USB SD card reader like speedy suggested and then hook it in ibook g4 and transfer data that way??! THANK YOU GUYS!! Thank you! Thank you all for your different suggestion. No you are right...don't quit right away!! I am going to post my apple cd 300e for sale and say it is unable to read cd's selling it as is. I do not need anymore when I have an ibook g4 mac os x sitting in my closet!! I know this laptop there is no keyboard but I do not need keyboard when a
  11. That is it. I quit, i have officially agreed and submit with the idea that if I want to transfer data to my mac 68k from pc it have to be done through a floppy disk. Meaning limited to 1.44 MB. I have ethernet card...I could not get it online. I have apple cd 300 with all the drivers and still cannot get it online. I toke the MicroSD card from scsdi2SD and hook it into my PC and tried to find a software to access the partitions in the SD in windows and attempt transfer files that way and still failed. So I officially resign with the idea I will be using disk exclusively to transfer files into
  12. I am having the same issue with mine. can you recommend a replacement cd drive for my apple cd? Do you know of a model name or something i can get in eBay. I am in the exact same boat. THANKS.
  13. That is hot!! I do not know why..but I start picturing Apple // when I saw this picture.
  14. I am going to start saving money and order this card! It may take me 4 to 5 month to save it..but I am buying it!!! I have an Apple //gs!! Plus it have a fan heheheheh!!
  15. I have issue with star gate http://www.ccadams.org/se/serial.html When I downloaded the windows version and attempted to run the setup it fails to run in Windows 10. I even went under compatibility and selected windows 95 and still fails regardless. The program is too old to run even the setup to extract it in my windows 10. What advice do you have? Can I use star gate in windows side and zterm in the mac side?
  16. I send you PM back! Yes! I agree with the System 7.1 disks by the way even if it cost me more shipping. Just give me until my next paid cheque and I will have all the money I need to pay for the shipping cost
  17. Do you know where I can go to get these accessories you just mentioned? Thanks
  18. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I live in Canada, BC, Surrey Jut to point out that using a drive setup software my mac lc III can see the device. It says <CD-ROM> and says the scsi number as 4. 0-3 as for my hard drive partitions. So it sees it and the device sees my mac. In fact they talk. It just the terminator is missing and i believe my new cd-rom media is not compatible with this device. It is 700 MB with very, very, very, very, light green at the bottom. I think it will not work on this. It is as if I am putting a dvd disc in a cd rom. So I am going to purchase a 650 MB blank disc w
  19. Would this terminator do? https://www.ebay.ca/itm/ACTIVE-SCSI-TERMINATOR-50-PIN-CENTRONICS-MALE-SCSI-1-TERMINATOR-ACTIVE-50-PIN/282477893471?hash=item41c4fe975f:g:5RQAAOSwBt5ZGH5z
  20. You are aware that is the worst news you have ever given me right?? I was relying exclusively on applecd to transfer data between pc and mac including mac os 8.1 and now you are telling me i am hopeless? I am stuck! I can never transfer data between pc and mac ever! What i have installed is all I got?? THANKS for the great news!!
  21. 1) I do not have an audio cd. So that part I cannot tell. 2) I am unsure what you mean by this? I try to download mac os 8.1.iso for 68k Mac and I burned that directly using imgBurn. After that, I placed the cd in the drive and still nothing happens. 3) I do not know what you mean by this! To answer. No. But....I will try to use the cable that came with that applecd in my mail instead of the cable I use for the other drive. Maybe the cable is the reason why it is not working. It is not the cable.
  22. Hey guys, I have received my AppleCD 300 I hooked it directly to my Mac LC III. I ran the Apple CD media software that came preinstalled with System 7.0 it no longer prompts an error message that it cannot find a CD audio player and it ran. it even found it as scsi ID 3. The AppleCD 300 LED is solid green and when I eject it and place a media it turns to orange as it reads it and returns back to solid green. I have placed couple of CD's that are for the Amiga and some are just normal cd burned with files for the Amiga it attempts to read it then turns solid green and no
  23. That is ok. The apple Cd 300e solved my problem ones and for good (ones it arrives). Even if I cannot use the pioneer in my amiga and my pc have no sci adaptor...it is doing something very important for me.... WHITE NOISE!! the sound of that fan...........aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah I am in love...the loud hummmmmmming sound it makes...is so satisfying. Also there is something about the fact it can only read dvd...- fans face - that is so hot, hot, hot, hot, hot....I do not know why I like that O_O. Also...the fact it have blinking LED if there is an error it blinks th
  24. It is done!! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Apple-CD-300e-Plus-CD-Disk-Drive-/132506265591?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=alE8wtI5od0xT6F6NfA01Cb%2B9Ko%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc I purchased it! It is mine and it is coming in it's way!!!!!
