BASIC week at Reddit /r/retrobattlestations is over but you can relive the fun on your Apple // without any typing! Simply follow these steps to download the disk image to a new disk for your machine.
- Connect your laptop, tablet or phone’s headphone jack to the tape input jack on the back of your Apple // using a 1/8″ mini headphone cable.
- Turn the volume up to maximum.
- Turn on your machine and hold control and hit reset to get to a ] prompt.
- Insert a blank disk into drive 1 (it will be erased!).
- Turn on caps lock and type LOAD and hit return.
- Begin playing the .WAV file below on your device.
If all goes well, in about 2 minutes you should have a floppy that you can now boot from. When it’s finished, hit return to reboot your machine. ProDOS should load BASIC. Once it does, type LOAD REDDIT and then RUN.
