Hi there - I have a tape (of a game) that I used to plug in via a tape deck and play on my Apple II (back in the mid-80's) and I wondered if it's possible to extract the data and get it on to a disk? so I can load up and play the game now ? What equipment/software will I need ?

If you are talking about playing it inside an emulator, it would be easier to attempt to use google and find the game image on the internet. Seems like there are thousands of old games out there.

Or, maybe one of the Apple pros around here could help transfer it.

Well, I know that the early Tandy machines used to have a program on the boot disk that would read in a program from tape and write it to disk, I'm sure apple wouldn't have been outdone.

This is, of course, if you have an actual Apple II.

If not, Chuck's suggestion is the way to go.

Thanks for the responses. This game is from the UK and I know for a fact that I am one of a few people who still have the game in any format. So if there is a way of converting that would be great and I would be happy to hear from someone, otherwise I guess I need to do some serious reading on 'emulators' if I want to get access to the game.

cheers.

Do you HAVE an Apple II and a floppy drive for it?
