Steven E. Huggs wrote an Apple II emulator for JAVA. Thanks to the assistance of Andrew Gregory, I've been able to add the emulator to this page.
What is Java? In short, Java technology is both a programming language and a platform. Once compiled, a Java program can run on any machine that has Java software.
What do I need? You need to have java installed and enabled. You can download it from sun.
What next? Go to one of the following pages. Wait for the Java Applet
to load. Hit reset to begin. The disk image will load at the "standard" speed of
an Apple II+. After clicking reset, click on the "screen area" to make sure the
applet receives your responses. Otherwise, you may accidentally hit "reset"
again when you press the space bar! Once loaded, you can play the adventure.
Note: The disks are write protected. Thus, for the Beginner's Cave and Main Hall, your character will disappear when you close your browser. For best gameplay, download a "regular" emulator and disk image. Adventure's 124 and 246 rely on "Fresh Sam" for gameplay.
The emulator will not work with 80-columns. Do not select an 80-column display!
There is a persistent clicking sound in the background. I'm not quite sure why.
Crashing into a cursor:
|If you see this,||then its quite possible that the program has crashed.|
