BIG NEWS!  Sam Stoddard, who had submitted 18 Nibble programs last year, has outdone himself.  He has now sent 265 programs covering the major features in every issue of Nibble from 1980 through 1992!  In addition he has developed a complete collection of 461 One-Liner and Two-Liner programs which are also offered here.  Here is Sam's own description of what he's done, and it's a monumental effort.

Be sure to also scan the other programs that are available in the Nibble Library (scroll farther down page). They include Apple Classics, Apple Secrets, Disassembly Lines, and more

"This zip file contains 24 disk images, each one packed with Nibble programs.  There are 265 programs (spanning 650 files), the majority of which had not previously been available from your web site in electronic form.  The full list is attached as Stoddard_Collection_List (see below).

  While I most certainly did not get every Nibble program typed in, I got just about every game, just about every graphics and sound program, the vast majority of the educational programs, and a healthy selection of some of the more enduringly useful applications. I'm particularly happy to be able to provide "STORM WARNING," which I'm pretty sure was the largest program ever published in Nibble: 95 sectors of binary code and 15 more of BASIC.  There are others that approach that size, like NIBBLE DINER, which is 104 sectors of BASIC code.  Another interesting item is LE MANS, originally published in Integer Basic, but which I managed converted to Applesoft Basic for easier access.

 Key Perfect/AccuType was used whenever available to ensure error-free programs.  Additionally, I looked over the Errata sections of every issue, making corrections as I encountered them.  In some cases, I even fixed bugs and spelling errors that Nibble hadn't caught.  In only a very few instances did I supply programs or data not originally published in Nibble.  One example: for SERPENT'S COIL, a program for tracking tropical storms, I added in a data file with Hurricane Katrina's coordinates, so that Katrina could be plotted within the program.

All of the disks in both collections are bootable.  The HELLO/STARTUP program on each will display the disk catalog, and then you're on your own and may run any program you wish.  I recommend taking a leisurely perusal of each disk -- I'm sure it'll be a fond walk down memory lane."

AppleWin and Virtual ][ Emulators for the Apple II

We're making AppleWin accessible for downloading.  It is a free Apple II emulator that runs the Nibble Disk images under Windows. This is the latest version thanks to
Tom Charlesworth and Michael Pohoreski.  Their website for further updates is:

And here's a link to Virtual ][ an excellent Apple II emulator
that runs on the Macintosh.

The disk images will run under BOTH of these emulators.

Key Perfect versions 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0

Key Perfect was one of the basic tools used by Nibble readers to check program code as it was being typed into the Apple II from Nibble magazine.  It generates a checksum code for every 10 lines of Applesoft and every 50 bytes of machine language.  It's a handy tool if you're typing programs from the Nibble library. :-)

Thanks to Sam Stoddard, we now have two major versions of Key Perfect.  Version 5.0 for newest issues and Versions 1.0 and 2.0 for older magazines.  This older version has an introductory screen showing the volume and issue numbers covered by these earlier versions.

AccuType is a system of three programs that help you to type Nibble listings accurately and quickly.  It is a supplement to CheckIt, the short Applesoft typing checker program published in every issue.  This download contains both the AccuType manual and the programs.

Renewal Bonus Disks

Each year, it was our custom to offer a renewal bonus disk that had the best programs from the previous year.  This is a collection of several years of those disks.pp

TWO Kinds of Disk Images  
The First Kind
Here's what the first kind of disk image looks like when it is opened with AppleWin.  It is an exact replica of the original disk, and it is the format of most of the disk images. When the disk boots, it will display the title screen for a few seconds and then go to the main menu.  Most of the disk images are of this type.

The Second Kind
However, some of the disk images are different and represent user-created collections of programs. These are:
1987 #1
1990 #4-6
1991 #4-7
and #9

To navigate these, you'll need to type CAT and ENTER to get to the first menu.  Then successively type: PREFIX <directory name> followed by CAT to open a Directory.  In the example below, Nibble 1991 directory was displayed by typing:

and then the issue was opened and displayed by typing:

Obtained by type CAT Obtained by typing: PREFIX NIBBLE.1991 and then typing: CAT Obtained by typing: PREFIX APR.VOL12.NO04 and then typing: CAT
We hope you'll enjoy the programs and of course you can find out all about them with the appropriate issues of the magazine.
