Looking at the apple2.cpp source, the original Apple II's character generator is marked "BAD DUMP"

I've put up an album on Imgur of an Apple II I have - is the chip we're looking for there? There's some kind of kludge, presumably to allow switching charsets.

I actually expect that the original II's chargen will match the II Plus one; it's BAD DUMP mostly because it's worthwhile for historical reasons to check.

Yours appears to possibly have a lowercase mod, or maybe the second chip has special German characters? Dumping at least the RO-3-2513 would be useful to resolve the bad dump question, and both chips would be interesting if we wanted to emulate whatever mod you have there.

Right, so I need a good way to dump the RO3-2513's from both the ITT2020 and the Apple II ...you're spot on for the lower case Generator - it's listed in the LS ADM-3 manual

Sorry to bother you.

I've recently tried to run the apple2e driver from the terminal and got this "error"

Yeah, you're not synced up to the latest code.

Hello all.

I made most of the Apple-1 .wav files quite some time ago for MESS. I'm here to post one more for the software list (if anyone is interested adding it).

I finished this way back in 2012 but never got around to submitting it.

Full Credit goes to Jeff Tranter for the hex dump. jefftranter.blogspot.com

Enhanced Basic 2.22

Screenshot
Enhanced Basic 2.22 .wav
ebasic.bin
EnhancedBASIC_hex.txt

Enhanced Basic 2.22 - load at 5000.78B0R enter at 7825R
(Note: Press Enter when prompted for "Memory size?".)

Load ebasic.bin in Mame debuger:

- bin file should be in Mame directory
- load ebasic.bin,5000
- type "go" in debugger without quotes
- x out of debugger
- type 7825R in Mame to run program

Thank you Robbbert for teaching me how to load .bin files.

Updated hex dump: Updated Enhanced Basic 2.22 hex dump
5000R runs the program (already in the dump at the end of the hex). Just copy and paste and hit enter when finished.
I'll make a .wav for this in the near future.

P.S. Sorry for all the edits.
