program working on Apple II / Apple II+

Is there a list of all the programs working on an original Apple II / Apple II+ ?

most of the disk images I'm loading are not working on a II++
- some just crash
- some other end with basic errors
- some other seem to require resources they have...

I guess its due to program for IIe or later...
incompatible with II / II+

I was thinking that perhaps somewhere a list existed
with the requirement for each applications

a friend told me he had a lot of problems
to find disk image running on an original Apple II

it would be great to have a database of the disk images
with the minimum version of Apple needed and the extension
needed to run the application...

Not a comprehensive list. And the few lists I have seen are all different. None come close to the supposedly 17,000 titles available.

How much RAM does your IIplus have? A plurality of "Apple II compatible" software, including most games targets a standard configuration of a "64k" Apple II, which can be satisfied by either a 48k IIplus with a language card or a base non-enhanced IIe. Myself I've had pretty good luck running most of the games I've tried from places like this on my IIplus, which meets that standard config.

If you lack a language card and/or have an original II with Integer basic (and especially if you have less than 48k) the amount of software you're able to run will decline pretty rapidly.

As long as you have AppleSoft ROMs and a language card, everything before late 1983 should run. After that, some software started targeting a 128k Apple IIe/IIc.
