I just got an Apple //e not too long ago, wish I had a bit more time to play around with it. I tried sending a few cassette games over from WAV files, and that was fun, but I'm having a little bit of trouble getting ADTPro to work correctly...and I only have a few floppies left that I'm willing to overwrite.

Wasteland is pretty awesome, but I think I like the IBM PC version a little bit better.

Hey that's pretty cool that you can pass files stored on cassette via a wave file - never thought of that - do you just plug soundcard's output into //e's RCA jack?

Yep: http://asciiexpress.net/gameserver/

There might be more games elsewhere, I didn't look. From what I've read, cassette games didn't last too long before floppies took over.

Don't Starve. I got this gifted from someone on Steam so I'll go try it now, looks like an interesting and odd game.

(sorry for the double post but the last one was from 7 days ago)

Currently playing Zelda - A link to the past for the Snes. I had never played it yet so i started playing it a few days ago. Currently stuck on the part where you transform into a bunny (the hell!?) 8O

Trying to get near just about absolutely every single little thing in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and attempting a no kill run through Snake Eater.

Cool! BTW, if you look hard enough, you can still find places to buy 5.25" floppies for your Apple (or other computers) If I ever get organized, I'd like to bring back my Apple //e and my TI-99/4A. The latter used a cassette drive and it took a while for programs to load but at least it gave me a chance to run to the icebox for a drink. ;)

I was thinking of that too. BTW, I did try the cassette port on the Apple //e and it did work. IIRC, the Apple ran tapes at 1200 baud and the TI-99/4A at 1300 baud. FYI, the old TRS-80 Model-I I first used in 1979 ran at 500 baud for the cassette drive.
