Gerard Putter has released another update to the popular Virtual II 8-bit Apple II emulator. The following changes are included in this latest version:
- Fixed an issue where the Mockingboard card could halt the virtual machine (this happened, for example, in Ultima IV).
- Corrected an issue in the “floating bus” screen rendering, thereby improving compatibility.
- Fixed an issue that could cause stray pixels on the emulated screen when switching from 80-column text to low-resolution graphics.
- Improved screen rendering perfomance by using Apple’s Grand Central Dispatch technology.
Version 6.5 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later. Version 6.3.7 is still offered for users of OS X 10.4 and 10.5. Visit the main Virtual II site here to download your preferred version.
