Wendell Sander has a Star Trek version in audio format on his site - I haven't checked to see if this is a different port.
This is an AIFF version of the Apple monitor format file that can be found on applefritter.com.
It took me a bit of debugging using Virtual II's inspector and a Wozanium ROM image to figure out the commands.
G - new Game
CR(carriage return) - tells computer to move (other commands do not requite a carriage return)
R - Reverse sides
yxyxM = Move piece from position y,x to position y,x - computer confirms by printing proposed move
L - resign and start over
Q - Quit and return to monitor
P - Print current board
Type G to start a new game, once it gives you the checkmate message.
The game basically works, but it's not without user interface and other quirks - like it apparently doesn't know when it has won.
AIFF Sound Files
AIFF sound files can be loaded into your Apple 1 with an iPod and an Apple Cassette Interface
Command line to AIFF converter
I have developed an Apple command line format to AIFF converter. If you have an Apple 1 program in this Apple command format and an Apple Cassette Interface, you can load it into your Apple 1 using 3 easy steps.
- convert it to AIFF
- move it to your iPod
- download it to your Apple 1 from your iPod using the Apple Cassette Interface.
The Command Line To AIFF Converter
C program. Download source code here: toaiff.c
- only tested on Macintosh OS/X (PPC version)
- should be easily portable to other platforms with POSIX support - type sizes might need to be adjusted, though
- this version will only write one continous segment
- for multiple segments, run program for each segment seperately and name so music player will play one after another
- compile in a terminal window using the command: cc toaiff.c -o toaiff
- put the Apple command line program in same directory as the toaiff program
- type command: ./toaiff inputfilename outputfilename
- make sure the output file name ends in .aif
- copy to itunes and load on your favorite music player
- volume setting on iPod should be turned to about 3/4 of full volume
- connect output to apple ACI
- enter Apple 1 monitor commands to load program, as if you were connected to a cassette player
- play sound file, just like you are playing a cassette recorder to load a program
- check last two bytes - they should match last two bytes in program
- if it fails to load properly try adjusting music player volume
Example Sound File
This is my Apple 1 memory test converted to aif format using this program: a1mt.aif
