VSdrive A2gameserver and other such things

I attempted to get the A2gameserver running this evening off of the 2E. I was able to install the software and see a bootstrap attempt. I threw up a red flag though when I noticed that the server end doesnt have an option to set serial speed, this looks like a project unfinished. The documentation is but a paragraph, and a more expected method of providing the client (disk image for adtpro) does not exists and expects to see it accomplished by audio from a wav file.

Is this project still a thing, or is it deadware.

Also, ive played with VSdrive from ADT. It mentions an emulated hard disk possibility (up to 32MB) but no instruction as to how one produces such a file on the server end. Any ideas.

Hi,

if you mean this: https://sourceforge.net/projects/a2gameserver/ ... I've never tested it ...

These two:

http://asciiexpress.net/gameserver/

http://asciiexpress.net/diskserver/

work perfectly alright. I use them to send programms from my IPhone via the headphone jack to the cassette input jack of my Apple IIplus - never had a problem doing that...

I think the value for this was that you could send the content over serial instead of audio at much more reliable and higher speeds.

If the only functionality requires sending programs as tape from an iphone, then at this point ADTpro would be far superior to manage this. If only I could figure out how vsdrive works
