First off, I have to say it is great to see there is a healthy community for the old Apples out there! I am a new member and recently found a Europlus (I am in Australia). I learned to code on one of these back in the early 80s.
I have it up and running and seem to go well except for one thing, it does not display graphics, the screen just goes blank whenever graphics should be shown, although text mode is fine. I found a couple of old games that should display graphics, but don't, although the program is running fine just not showing graphics. The weird thing is however when I reset the computer while that program is running, the graphic screen flashes up for a moment before the machine resets. In that brief moment, the graphics is displayed perfectly. From memory this machine will only display B&W without a PAL colour card. I had a read through the forums but can't see if anyone else has had a similar issue.
My setup is an Apple II Europlus with 16k Lang card, original disk drive controller with the first type floppy drive. My monitor (a 16" LCD TV that displays either PAL or NTSC) and is showing that PAL is detected when I start the machine connected via an "AV" cable, and I see the normal Apple ][ test on boot and all text programs work fine.
I have to say it has been long time, and I am "very" rusty with regards the Apple II. I hope I am not doing something dumb, but is there something I am missing here? Does any one have any suggestions?
Any help greatly appreciated.
