I couldn't find any of the old threads on the subject, so I'll make a new one...

Cool! Is this spell-checking "feature" on display here an artifact from the emulator, the classic app, or the author? whistle

Mostly it's an artifact of finally getting something to work at 1:30 AM. sleep

ETA: Here's some color from the built-in video. And no misspellings in this shot ;-)

What's that icon next to the clock in the first screenshot?

The '040 Wiki reminded me of the fractal zooming programs that were popular at the time. What else is fun and uses the FPU?

Faxmodem extension (the icon is a fax machine). This is an HDD image off a real machine that had severe extension-itis; as ripped clicking a menu crashes (happens on the hardware it was taken from too). Space-bar booted it for the second screenshot and it works much better smile

MESS can run Systems up to 7.5.5 in the Plus/II/IIx/IIcx drivers and 7.6.1 in the IIci driver. What System do those programs normally require?

They are ram expander / ram disks. Let you get more out system 6 24 bit mode.

some info hear

http://www.euronet.nl/users/mvdk/Tips_and_tricks.html

http://home.earthlink.net/~gamba2/system6.html

system 7 32 bit mode works.

also about the IIci or IIFX rom any way to get that rom working on the II/IIx/IIcx/se30 like you can do on real hardware.

I don't know if they work. Try them and let us know. MODE32 works in the emulation, and System 7 runs in 32-bit mode and with virtual memory in the IIci driver (although virtual memory's not too useful when you can just -ramsize 128M and have more memory than anyone dreamed of in 1991).

Playing musical ROMs isn't really necessary. As was already mentioned, MODE32 works in MESS to get 32-bit-clean on the IIx/IIcx, and the IIci driver is both 32-bit clean and fully capable after the fixes to the sound a few months ago.
