xapple2

Description
This is a fully-functional 100% Apple ][ emulator for X windows.

It is partly written in 386 (AT&T) assembler and partly in C. You can switch diskettes using a diskette database through an intuitive interface. Furthermore, it is possible to trim the speed of the emulator and it runs in full speed (approximately) twice as fast as an standard Apple II+ on a 486DX-50. It uses the svgalib's key scancodes and implements the undocumented 6502 instructions (required by at least two games: Bug Attack and MS Pacman).

Because the Apple ROMs are copyrighted, they are not included here. You will have to make copies of them from your old Apple computer, or try to find them on the net

Transferring your old Apple disks is a bit of work, but you can save yourself the trouble of digging up your old masters by seeing if some kind soul has already done the work for you at:

ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/images/

Remember, you can only use these ROMs and images _legally_ if you already own the original. Have fun! (Ahhh.... What memories!)
