[Blindapple] disks without speech and the emulator

Ah yes, I knew there was a way to access the second drive from dos. Might try that with the run command and see what happens. I used to be ok at this stuff, but it’s been so long. haha

If you catalog the second disk I thought you could run programs from it. The syntax is something like "catalog,d2," but should be easy enough to Google.

Hey everyone.


I was just looking through the disks for apple talk, and wanted to investigate atalkgamespro.dsk. I noticed there’s a prodos textalker boot disk; I understand that not all disks include textalker because it takes up a good number of sectors and you only have so many to play with on a disk. What I am wondering is, do I have to boot from the textalker pro disk, and then switch disks, using the method described in the read me file with the emulator? Or is there a way I could have it read the image from –flop2 and run the programmes from that? I am trying to recall my own Apple days and I can’t say I ever remember running anything from the second disk drive; it seems like it was for data purposes only. So, am I correct in thinking the only way to access these non-talking disks is to exit the emulator and “switch” disks in drive 1?


Thanks again.
