Spectrum and SIS

Spectrum 2.5.4 is a full featured communications program for the IIgs, and includes a powerful scripting language that can be used to build complete custom applications. Spectrum supports the usual download protocols, such as X/Y/Zmodem, and Kermit, and also supports TCP/IP connections using Marinetti. If you are new to Spectrum, or just want to know how to script, you can read the Spectrum Programming Manual, the Spectrum Scripting manual, and the Spectrum References Manual.

The Spectrum Gold disk image contains a working copy of Spectrum 2.5.4, and a universal installer, which allows you to install Spectrum wherever you like.

Antelope & Gazelle   BLASTS FROM THE PAST

Originally released as Data Highway™, Antelope is the Freeware version of this venerable DOS 3.3 telecommunications program. Supplied as a SHK 5.25” disk image. Read the Antelope manual. Gazelle is an 8-bit telecommunications program for the //e, //c and IIgs, written by me nearly 30 years ago, before Spectrum was born. Handy for those who wish to communicate with the world using their 8-bit computers. Read the Gazelle manual.

BrkDown 1.0.4   UPDATE

BrkDown is a desktop disassembler for the IIgs, which disassembles both 8 and 16 bit source, to give ORCA/M or Merlin 16 compatible source files for both the data and resource forks. These files can then be edited with powerful function commands to make file sets that can then be reassembled. Read the updated BrkDown manual.

Download hints

The Downloads Centre has many different kinds of files. The PDF files will open in most web browsers, and the other files may download directly to disk when you click on them. If they open as text in your web browser, try right clicking, and saving the file to disk instead. BXY files will need to be opened with ShrinkIt, GSHK, or Balloon, and Disk images can either be mounted directly to the IIgs, or mounted with emulators such as Sweet16. If you are using a IIgs, either real or emulated, you can often transfer files quickly into your IIgs from the host computer by using the SAFE2 FTP application.
