I was wondering if you guys have ever seen or heard of this disk.
Many years ago I was given all the disks from two people I knew who were selling or have lost their Apple ii stuff.
One particular game was interesting in that the sound that came out of my iie was incredible.
It was an introduction to the game: EDIT: the corrected things it says are here:
Delta One Niner! Mayday! We are lost behind jupiter! Roger, this is Delta One Niner. We have you
on radar we are go on hyperspace!
The voice was perfectly clear and it had enough distinctiveness that you knew that it was not a synthesized voice but a recording of some kind of someone's real voice.
After the computer said this, there was a sound of a lead guitar before it ended.
Before the speech there was another sound (notes) not too impressive but it went along with the stuff that came afterwards.
Now remember, this is not an Apple ii midi card hooked up to a Roland MT-32 or anything of the sort.
This was not Ultima V.
And it was not a mockingboard card of ANY kind.
It came out of the speaker of my Apple iie directly.
Perhaps someone has heard of this game or could theorize as to what the programmers possibly did to give this extraordinary sound to a iie.
Let's talk about this because I think it's noteworthy. More evidence that the Apple II was more advanced than anyone thought.
The disk has been found:
It is called, "The Halley Project"
