kegsx has been awesome for me. plays oregon trail just fine, as well as other .bin files.
though, it has yet to play any .dsk for me. in particular, i'm talking about other MECC titles in the vain of oregon trail, like number munchers, odell lake and other edutainment titles.
i see on some screenies on the xport site that dsk images are listed and i assume work. i've tested my .dsk files in other apple emus for pc, and seem to run ok (i mainly use applewin).
does kegsx indeed support dsk, just not the ones i have? or do i need to do something to configure kegsx to play these files?
oh...Fuckin great work so far xport, keep it up

I find that after running for a while, it breaks and prompts an out of memory error in line no. xxxx.
I have used AppleWin in PC to run the same program and no error is found.
Would you advise how to solve the problem?

Additionally, joystick support seems similarily flawed when it comes to directional control.
I've dug through all the FAQs, Docs and readmes. I've played with every conceivable setting.
Is this a known glitch in the emulator, or is there a better way to get consistent performance from the input devices?

i wanted to point out one thing i found troublesome and also request a feature.
lemme first clarify. my family has/had an Apple IIC, and so that's what i was looking to play in emulated form recently. having already been familiar with the many other Xport projects, i decided to give the port of KEGs a shot. being unfamilair with the IIGS, i wasn't up on how to get it to boot IIC/IIE stuff. apparently going back to the original IIGS, you have to go into the system Control Panel to the Slots menu and set the system to boot from a 5.25" slot and then put your disks in that slot to get them to auto-run properly. if you don't do this, you'll be starring at the ] prompt trying to remember your DOS 3.3 commands like i was at first. this little tidbit seems to be the key to get KEGs to run the old IIC and IIE .dsk files. once i set the system to boot Slot 6 all the time, i was able to run just about every game i tried, with the usual Xport nice interface to boot
the only constructive criticism i had was in the manner the graphics are rendered. specifically, it seems like your emulator throws up blue on regions of the screen which have no signal/no color. i'm not sure if that's part of the IIGS itself, something you're debugging, or intentional, but i gotta say, a lot of the old text games are really hard on the eyes with white text on a blue background. i figure you might be able to put an option to have these regions rendered as black to make the whole thing more old-school friendly.
i haven't tried USB stuff or running my System 6 harddisk image yet, but i'll give them a go soon...
Xport rules! you know, thanks to you, we barely ever play actual Xbox games on our Xbox

My question is about running a game. I have switched my nm game to use :slot 6 as noted in the readme. when i go to run the game however, i get a screen "check startup device". Where can i change the startup device?
