View Full Version : Color Classic upgraded to "CCII" specs, added FPU... Any apps/games to try out?

I posted about the little Color Classic that could a few months ago. My Color Classic now has the following specs:

LC550/Color Classic II logic board (32bit bus, 33mhz 030)
68882/33mhz FPU (just added)
36 MB of RAM (max supported)
80mb HD
I forget how much VRAM but it does thousands of colors at the built-in 512x384 (is that right?) resolution...so whatever that requires.
Ethernet card

I have found and installed a few oldies, such as The Secret of Monkey Island, Prince of Persia (best version, IMO), Flight Sim 4.0, and of course the *must have* game of all time, Oregon Trail.... None of which take advantage of FPU.

What I'm looking for is suggestions and/or disk images (if considered abandonware...I don't intend to get into any legality issues) for any apps or games that support FPU. I know in this day and age it is silly to even care, but for nostalgic purpose I *must* see what difference it makes to have the FPU in... ;)

I believe Falcon MC supported FPU (allowed for a higher detail mode or something along those lines), but I'd also like to learn about apps (math/scientific, CAD software, etc...)

:cool:

What kind of math/cad/scientific apps are you looking for?

For games there is a site called unerdogs that had some old mac games.

Underdogs I believe was the host for Macintosh Garden. It's been down for a while now. :(

I was thinking along the lines of Mathematica (or whatever it was called), physics simulation, etc... Or good CAD software.

You know, stuff I'll probably play with for 15 minutes then move on to the next vintage project. :mrgreen:
