Modern mass storage or disk drive emulation for IIe

Hi everyone. I'm new to the Apple II's, and after poking around a bit, was wondering if there are any disk emulation softwares or mass storage devices from which I can boot standard disk images (particularly games) I have both types of solutions for other 8-bits, so there must (?) be something like this for the Apple. I'm aware only of the CFFA board, but from what I understand about it, it's a pure hard-drive like replacement that only works with ProDOS (or am I wrong?)

Thanks for your tips!

Semi-Virtual Disk is a hardwa

Semi-Virtual Disk is a hardware solution:

Apple II Game Server is a completely disk-less solution:

And of course there are many software emulation solutions (lots of Apple emulators) as well as filesystem manipulators (FishWings, CiderPress, ADFS, etc.)

Anything you're looking for that these don't satisfy?

perfect, exactly what I was looking for, thanks.

The only "better" solution that I could think of would be a CFFA type card with a bootloader/menu for disk images. One can dream.
