EmuCR:Virtual ][Virtual ][ v11.2 is released. Virtual is a commercial Apple II emulator for Mac OS. Virtual ][ lets you play the old Apple games, because it supports all graphics modes, lets you control the game paddles with a USB game pad or mouse and emulates the internal speaker. When you want to temporarily interrupt gameplay, Virtual ][ allows you to save the entire virtual machine, and continue later on from where you left off.

But Virtual ][ also supports more "serious" software, because it emulates many peripheral devices: floppy disk, hard disk, mouse, serial port, matrix printer, even cassette tape! It also emulates the Z80A processor, allowing you to run the CP/M operating system.

And for the technically inclined: you can configure the machine by "inserting" and "removing" emulated peripheral cards, change the CPU speed, or even install your own emulated character generator ROM. The "Inspector" feature allows you to closely observe the behavior of the emulated machine and debug Apple II programs.

If you have original diskettes and a working Apple II, Virtual ][ can help you convert the diskettes to the Mac, even if they are "copy protected".

The program automatically indexes all Apple II disk images on your Mac, so you can find an Apple II file instantly, by entering its name.

You can download an evaluation version and try the program first. If you like the program, you can buy a license and fully enjoy the nostalgic fun of the old Apple ][ computer.

Virtual ][ requires an Intel Mac with Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" or better.

Virtual ][ v11.2 Changelog:
- Created a configuration panel for the Apple //c machines.
- The Apple //c now supports the no-slot clock.
- The standard configuration of the Apple //c with 32KB ROM now has two diskette drives and one OmniDisk drive. A second OmniDisk drive can be configured.
- On a virtual machine with just one floppy disk drive, a crash could occur when the disk stopped spinning. This has been fixed.
- Corrected an error in handling the Language Card switches (memory addresses $D000-$FFFF). This improves general compatibility.
- Improved the "simple text printer". It used to generate a unique file name on the Desktop; now you have the additional option to specify your own file path.
- The previous release used the term "Apple //c Plus" for an Apple //c with a 32KB version 0 ROM. This was a misnomer, and has been corrected throughout the application.
- Under rare circumstances the Inspector could affect the operation of the virtual machine, even if no breakpoints had been set. This has been solved.
- Clarified some error messages.
- Several minor performance improvements.
