Umm...direct quote from the link:

"In short, the Apple2Pi card will give you the ability to directly put into
your Apple2/2+/2e/2GS a Raspberry Pi card."

I also tested my clone in a IIGS and had it working. Design files here:

Sorry Scott

I was referring to the availability of the card, not its compatibility with the IIgs, sorry again

Got the Apple II Pi card with Accessory Pack 1, installed it per instructions in slot 2 of the GS. A couple of minor hiccups (RTFM, stupid !) but all is well.

Absolutely fantastic ! I'm not very knowledgeable about Linux, fortunately, you don't need to know much to get everything up and running, the Accessory Pack Quick Notes guide you through the setup.

So, here I am, running GSPort on the Raspberry Pi, plugged into an Apple IIGS.

Once again, excellent work.
