I am resurrecting my Apple II (A2S1-9214) from late 1978. I used it extensively and cut my code writing teeth on it in the early 1980s, but it has been dormant since then.
It Boots into Monitor; Ctrl-G gives me Integer Basic (I replaced the F0 ROM); C600G starts the 3.3 System disk. I can load and run Integer programs from there.The problem is the Applesoft (FP) ROM card has gone dead. I pulled all the chips; deox'd them; seated everything; and all I get upon boot is a totally blank white screen and a hung system.
I am considering, instead of replacing the ROM Card, installing the Apple Language Card. From what I've read, the Language Card gives me the F8 Autoboot to the system disk, 16K more of RAM, and the card will "load the language not found on the main board."
Here's the question. I've spent hours searching without success, so I assume everyone else knows the answer. From where does the Language Card load Applesoft (FP) BASIC? Is it in ROM on the Language Card or does it load it from the system disk?
I don't mind not having the autoboot; I've lived with 48K forever; but, I sure don't want to live with " 5/2=2"
