Page comments Comment by 'private amsterdam walking tours' on Time Out for Some 8-bit Fun, IIGS Style 8 Bit games are really fun. It is more or less a cleanup fo rpur processors. To give an idea of where we stand today, gaming consoles have used 64-bit processors since the Atari Jaguar and Nintendo 64. The XBox 360 sports 3 64-bit processors. 64-bit PC processors are finally popular (you will see Windows Seven 64-bit version, for example.

Attempts to doft reset lead to a crash to what I assume is the Machine language monitor, but it's hard to tell because all the characters are wrong. What am I missing? Thanks. - Chris Sat, 14 Apr 2018 06:24:57 +0200 Christopher Dumas Comment by 'Todd Holcomb' on Time Out for Some 8-bit Fun, IIGS Style Just came across this entry - this will work slick for playing Dos games on my IIe with a HD. Thank you so much for compiling this collection and providing this HD image!

The system file was corrupt (I downloaded a new copy of FastBoot and installed that). Not sure if the corruption is from the original image or something that happened on my end, but it could explain Justin's difficulties. So now that I have FastBoot running, audio sounds as it should (no distortions) and I can quickly and easily jump from program to program. Awesome, I haven't played some of these since I was 12 years old! I have noticed some of the images won't start (particularly the "disk based" images) and some hang if you try and quit back to FastBoot via the CDA menu. Maybe more tinkering is needed?

It's possible that's interfering with DOS 3.3 Launcher working properly. Try a shift boot, temporarily turning off extensions to see if that helps. Try multiple different games. Mitch: guess is still a ROM03 issue. Don't have time to check it under emulation right now (as I don't have a real ROM03 machine on hand, but if you can check it on a ROM01 either real or emulated, try that.

As a matter of fact, the ROM 3 is more compatible with 8-bit software than the ROM 01. Maybe the copy I have is corrupt or not configured correctly? At any rate, seems I have the opposite issue of everyone else. The games launch just fine from GS/OS, but crashes if I try to launch from ProDOS 8. I'd much prefer the ProDOS 8 route, much faster switching in and out of games and no sound distortions. I'd love to get this working, let me know if you have any suggestions.
