xapple2 – Apple II+ and //e Emulator

xapple2 is a fully-functional 100% Apple ][ emulator for X.

It is partly written in 386 (AT&T) assembler and partly in C. You can switch diskettes using a diskette database through an intuitive interface. Furthermore, it is possible to trim the speed of the emulator and it runs in full speed (approximately) twice as fast as an standard Apple II+ on a 486DX-50.

It uses the svgalib’s key scancodes and implements the undocumented 6502 instructions (required by at least two games: Bug Attack and MS Pacman).

Features include:

  • 3 modes of emulation:
    • Apple ][+.
    • Apple ][+ undocumented.
    • Apple //e.
  • Produces sound through /dev/audio:
    • Precise pitch.
    • No wasted CPU bandwidth.
    • Multitasking and VM do not interfere with emulator sound.
