SHORT DESCRIPTION: SimIIe emulates a 128K Apple //e, using "clean-room" ROMs. It allows disk-swapping and saving to a disk-image - in short, is does just about everything: 80 columns, parallel printer adaptor, FOUR simulated disk-drives (5 1/4, 3 1/2 and ProDOS hard-drives), real joystick routines and more! On the negative side, this emulator is extremely slow on 33mHz computers.
ROMS: N/A (Apple ROMs are not used in this emulator).
DISK-IMAGE FORMAT: SimIIe (IIe - size: 143390 bytes).
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS: 80286 cpu with CGA graphics, 80486 recommended. SimIIe will not work on 8086, 8088 or V20 microprocessors, and is not compatible with Microsoft Windows (it cannot be run as a DOS task).
