I've got one, if anyone's impatient. ;)

But I think it's based on The Nowhere Man's crack (with the proper title
attached).

I tried to do this and failed hard.

Good, I'd like to figure out why my port breaks with a few objects in the
Logic Gates level. :/

> The Oregon Trail

There's an official version somewhere that uses the MECC "DOS emulator" to
run on ProDOS-8, I have it installed on my LC.

That's good enough for me that I won't do it myself.

Yes, I am aware of those. Marco posts here sometimes.

Yes, I have one from 4am.

Although you already know, Captain Goodnight :-)

Bard's Tale I (the original 8-bit version) and for anyone else that
wanted it, Tass Times in Tonetown, has already got a hard drive version
on:

http://www.whatisthe2gs.apple2.org.za/bard-s-tale-tass-times -ogre

They're also available on my 32 meg volume of compiled ProDOS
compatible and DOS 3.3 Launcher collection:

Hey qkumba

Great list!

When you get around to:

* Captain Goodnight, and
* Wings of Fury

could you do an in-depth write-up please? Like your Conan one but more details. :-) I'd *love* to reading what you and 4am do.

Cheers,
Michael

Yes, Pascal support needs some entirely new code.
It won't be ProRWTS at that point, it will be PasRWTS instead. :-)
Still, it's on the list.

I wonder if being able to port Wizardry would enable the porting of An
Introduction or The Apple at Work, or if Wizardry's version of Pascal is
too custom.

As the Wizardry source code is available, presumably 'all' you need is Prodos Pascal.

I came across a version of Instant Pascal under Prodos8. Will have to play with it to see if compatible.

It's in progress. I'm trying to actually complete a mission so that I can get on the high-score board to see how it's accessed.

Is there something I could do to help with the conversion? I can easily get on the leaderboard...

I ordered Apple Pascal 1.3 from there quite a while ago. No shipment and no response from him.

Sadly, no. It is literally the case that I have to get on the board so that I can intercept the write request to see how it's done.

Or... if you can do it in an emulator like MAME or AppleWin, please save the state before you enter the high score, and then send that state. I can trace from there.

WoF is a 18-sec title. Searching for pattern 20 00 B0 05/45 or 20 00 B0 06/46 if the RWTS18 is at $B000 could help. But I believe you have already done that ;-)

Would the save state in Virtual II work too?

Short Circuit is high on the list, but not for tonight.

I wonder if 3.5" could be useful.
In the style of Prince of Persia it has a fake ProDOS that takes care of everything.
