Is there a StarTrek for Apple 1 BASIC?

As the title suggests...  was there a version of the StarTrek (AppleTrek) game for the Apple 1's integer BASIC?  If so, where can I get it?  No joy in my searches, so far.

 

TIA.  Happy Holidays.  Cheerful regards, Mike, K8LH (Michigan, USA)

Hey Mike, hello from a fellow

Hey Mike, hello from a fellow Michigander.

 

I believe so; the file is present in the P-LAB archive and I thought there was an audio recording somewhere. Whether or not you have a P-LAB card or not, download the archive here (bottom download link of SD card contents) and check out all the BASIC programs for referece:

Hi Mike-K8LH!

You can get various programs in audio format for the Apple-1 at the link, including StarTrack. 

 

And I too join in with holiday greetings!

Hi MikeThere are actually two

Hi Mike,

There are actually two versions of Star Trek in the archive: the regular one and the 2003 version.

They're both in the BASIC directory .

The second one needs 16 kB of RAM and it's more articulated.

 

Thank you Alex for mentioning.

 

Enjoy! :-)

thanks for the links, guys

I wonder if I have the correct BASIC?  I'm using Krusader 65C02 by Ken Wesson 1.3 in 8K ROM (nvRAM , actually) which includes a 4K BASIC and the sample programs in that package seem to work fine.  However, when I load '21' from Vince Briel's January '05 post and warm start BASIC (E2B3R) it looks like the program is there and intact but I get a " *** >255 ERR" "STOPPED AT 10" message when I run the program.

Advice appreciated.  TIA and happy Holidays.  Mike

Mike,could you elaborate on

Mike,

could you please elaborate on that?

> However, when I load '21' from Vince Briel's January '05

 

Your error looks like a BASIC pointer error.

INTEGER BASIC programs are "made" by two memory chunks:

- pointers: $004A .. $00FF

- program/vars: $LOMEM .. $HIMEM (typically $0800 .. $0FFF for programs not in need of extended memory)

 

If you load just the "program" chunk you'll likely incur in that kind of errors.

Vince's '21' program

Both portions of the program were loaded.  If the program is good then perhaps I have a hardware or firmware problem.

I just tested your file on

I just tested your file on POM1 emulator: no errors, so the program is good.

You might have some other issue, I am afraid.

Replaced ROM Image

I replaced the Krusader '65C02' image in my 8K nvRAM with the Krusader '6502' image and now everything seems to be working.  Now I'll see what it takes to get Startrek from Claudio's files working.

 

Thank you, Gentlemen.  Happy Holidays.

I found one (startrek)

I found a version of StarTrek in a ZIP file from the A-One replica.  Works great.

 

Happy Holidays, guys...

If you want to use an

If you want to use an authentic vintage version, there was a port done by Bob Bishop and the listing is published in the May, 1977 issue of Interface Age magazine.

I really love reading those old magazines from when I was a kid.  Brings back a lot of memories.  I wish I had the money to buy and read all of them back in the day.  Sadly I lived in crappy backwater podunk town in the midwest when I was a kid and there weren't many opportunities to read them for free.  I had to go all the way out to the campus of the University which was a long bike or bus ride because the public library had very little.  Maybe Creative Computing and Byte if I remember right.  Not that those were bad.  There weren't many retail newsstands who carried anything more than that around there either, even if I had the money.

Great detective work.  Thank you.  

 

The version I found (screen shot below) seems a bit more elaborate than the one I played on my Apple II long ago.

 

Cheerful regards, Mike
