*** Ultimate Apple 1 software collection ***
I have temporarily put my collection of Apple 1 software (in CFFA1 .po format) on my iDisk site. iDisk is a Apple service that will be transitioning to iCloud and will soon disappear. I have spoken to Bill over at CallAPPLE.org where it will find a permanent home once he sorts out some server issues.
To my best knowledge this image contains every piece of software presently available for the Apple 1. If you think I am missing something please let me know, and I will add it to the list. Would be great to find more stuff.
For those lucky enough to have a real CFFA1 card then this .po file can be copied to a CF card (anything bigger than 32mb should work) using Ciderpress software. For those with an Apple Macintosh computer, you can use the great 'Open Emulator' software with CFFA1 emulation to load the .po image. It may even be possible to use Ciderpress to extract specific files and load them into the Apple 1 (or Apple 1 clone/replica) via a serial connection, although I have not tried anything like this yet.
The file is called 'ULTIMATE APPLE1 CFFA 2.5.po' and can temporarily be found under the Apple 1 section here:
The image contains the following files and directories:
EBASIC110 (fixed version)
EBASIC110U (Uppercase and fixed version)
EBASIC222U (Uppercase version)
A1ASSEMBLER V1 7000
A1ASSEMBLER V1 E000
2K SYMBOLIC ASSEMBLER
(directory contains David Schmenk's forth. Has issues running on Obtronix clone)
LEMONADE (needs LOMEM raised to load)
CLUE (I have yet to work out how to load this back in MSBASIC)
PRIME (I have yet to work out how to load this back in MSBASIC)
MATH.TUTOR (I have yet to work out how to load this back in MSBASIC)
TEMPERATURE (I have yet to work out how to load this back in MSBASIC)
• Because of certain naming limitations when saving programs using CFFA1, some of the names in this list may not accurately represent the actual names seen in the Apple 1 directories.
• In the case where the launch address of a program differs from the load address, then the launch address is included in the file name to make things easier. e.g. NIM.4AFR where the program loads at 300 but launches at address 4AF
• BASIC, ASOFT, MSBAS directories contain programs written in those languages, but also contain the language themselves. This saves time when loading as switching directories is not needed.
• I have not yet figured out how to reload programs saved in MSBASIC. This may be a memory related issue but I don't believe MS basic had LOMEM/HIMEM commands to shuffle things around.
It's taken quite a bit of searching, emailing and general harassment to get everything ready, so I really hope you all find this collection useful and entertaining.
Please let me know if you find anything anomalous or just plain broken. Again, if you have anything to add then please let me know as it would be great to grow this collection.
Finally, I want to thank all the people who have written, compiled, stored, typed in and converted these programs to work on the Apple 1. Unfortunately there are just too many names to mention here. Thank you all.
