AstroApple -
The obligatory astrology program from around 1979

Compucube -
A Rubiks cube solver from 1980, and manual

Bill Budge's 3D Graphic System -
Not any of the games like the trilogy or space album, but the software used to make those. A game development system. Also comes with a data/demo disk. And 50 page 8x11 manual

Space Kadet -
An action game (IIRC) from Datamost.

Rubik's Cube Unlocked -
another more sophisticated cube solver from double-gold software.

Introl X-10 -
Some sort of BSR controller software for a Mountain Hardwre card? Manual too

Keyfilter -
A utility from Mountain hardware. No idea what it does, but it might go with a ROM intended for the ROM+ (romplus) card.

Beamon Porter Powercase utility -
Utility disk for Beamon Porter lowercase rom, for the II+

The Planetary Guide -
Basic astronomy program from Synergistic Software, and includes manual

DFX II DOS File Exchange
A program that shows pictures as they are sent across the wires, for Micromodem II. The copy on Asimov is corrupted.

Apple-Cat II development pack
Something seemingly from Novation, not a hack pack or 3rd party software

Woot! Compucube and Rubik's Cube Unlocked are on Asimov in nib format! Too bad they don't work on real hardware, just emulators. But it's a start.

I am pretty sure that ADTPro will Write NIB Files to a Floppy...

I'll have to experiment. I wish I had time to crack these.

How sure? Because I was not able to do it that way in a simulation with ADT and Applewin. Real hardware may operate differently, but my gut says it still won't work.

If it will not work, then maybe this will:

It does, In config on the slave it has the .nib setting.

Have you actually tested it out and completed a transfer? Just because a function is implemented doesn't mean it is implemented correctly.
