I just heard the new podcast episode where they talked to you. I wasn't aware the II emulation was broken (when I started with the apple3 driver it was literally the only thing that worked), and MESS actually doesn't respect the /A2EMU signal right now because I haven't figured out everything it does yet. I'll look into at least fixing the text page issues though.
I should have reported it here, but figured if you wanted II emulation, then you'd be better off with native II, vs. II in a ///. Of course if you get the Titan //e card emulated, that'd be very interesting and fun to play with.
Of course, MESS also has very good Apple II emulation with dozens of cards available
ETA: color text mode is now disabled in A2 emulation mode on the ///. Any hints on how real h/w behaves in emulation mode with an RGB color monitor would be appreciated
Tested. Works. I'll have to test a game or something. I have no idea about the color, perhaps someone on the Apple /// FB group does.
