The latest version of the Virtual II Emulator has been released. Virtual II is a Shareware full featured Apple II emulator which offers users near real hardware experiences on Mac OS X. The latest release, version 8.4 contains a host of changes including
- Improved “woz” disk image compatibility; the application now deals better with several copy-protection schemes.
- If a woz disk’s internal write protect property has been set, QuickLook now shows the disk without a write-protect notch, to indicate that it cannot be made write-enabled (or at least not without special tools).
- Improved rendering of monochrome high resolution screens; it now shows a “half-pixel” shift where appropriate.
- The game controller configuration now only contains the type of controls that can actually be mapped to the Apple II game I/O: push buttons as well as axis controls such as joysticks and sliders.
