Hardball on the Apple IIgsHardball on the Apple IIgsBill Martens, who runs the superb "Virtual Apple 2 - Online disk archive" has informed me that the site now supports Firefox. Previously the Website only supported Internet Explorer. For those not familiar with the Website, it allows you to play Apple II and IIgs games directly in your browser. No fuss, no muss, and it's fairly configurable to boot. As a bonus, the site also gives you access to the ROM images for use in another emulator or for transfer to your real Apple system. While my preferred way is to of course play these games on the real hardware, nothing beats the immediacy of a well functioning browser-based emulator that already has the ROMs, as it's invaluable for quick reference and screenshot captures. Check it out at http://www.virtualapple.org/.

You know, all this time, I

You know, all this time, I thought they'd taken it down and now I find out it was my browser. Cripes on a cracker. I mentioned games I was ashamed of having not played; Oregon Trail is one of them.

Cool, a nice way to play

Cool, a nice way to play those old AppleII and AppleIIGS games. Some run way too fast on my system, like Marble Madness. I need to find out if the speed is adjustable or not.

It shouldn't have anything

It shouldn't have anything to do with your system, Mark. By default, every game runs under the Apple IIgs. You can select the system you want to boot after you click on the game. Try an older system. Alternately you can also boot up with a Transwarp emulation to speed certain games up.
