I’ve never heard of this before, but a friend pointed meÂ towardsÂ this this page, that has a CP/M version that’ll run on a Macintosh. Â But as they list out it ONLY works on super ancient Mac’s namely the 128k & 512k varities. Â Plus owners & everyone beyond them is out of luck.
So what is there to say? Â Well it does in fact run CP/M, and the demo disk includes WordStar but without a clear way of getting data on & off the diskettes it is kind of .. pointless? Â I’m sure back in the day this would have been an awesome programme for Macintosh users as you could run ‘all that CP/M’ stuff out there on these giant 400kb diskettes. Â Needless to say the rise of the IBM PC killed that and everyone went to MS-DOS but for some people I’m sure this was the tipping point of why to go Mac. Â In this day & age emulators to run emulators may seem silly but I figured it was at least worth mentioning that this did in fact exist…
I suppose I could rig something to transfer the 8080 version of Zork1 to it, but is it worth the effort?
This is said to work on 68000 🙂
