[Blindapple] Introduction.

You extract the messapple-win.zip file. In the readme is the command string
for how to start the emulator. I copied the string into Notepad and saved it
as games.bat in the same folder with the extracted messapple-win. Now all I
have to do is navigate to the folder where messapple-win is located and
select games.bat. If I'm at the Dos command prompt instead of Windows
Explorer, I type games.bat instead of selecting it. The emulator then loads.
As stated earlier, this is my personal preference.


Batch files were made for the Dos operating system, though  I'm not sure if
they originated with Apple Dos or Microsoft Dos. Regardless they are a way
to execute a series of commands quickly.


What do you not understand in the readme?

Hi Trina,

Welcome to BlindApple. To get started, I suggest the following steps.

1. Open the zip file.

2. Go into the File menu with alt-f and arrow to Extract all. Press enter.

3. Select the extract button and press enter.

4. After the files are extracted, go into the folder that was created by
extraction and read the readme. Follow the steps there to start the
emulator. I myself created a batch file so I don't have to copy and paste
the command string for loading a disk into the emulator. That is my personal

5. Post to this list with additional questions.


I hope this helps.

My name is Trina and I'm 43 years old and I'm from Halifax, Nova Scotia
Canada.  I sing and play guitar, but most of all, I love helping people and
learning new information.

I just received the advertisement from Jason through the RS Games and I'd
love to play!!! It sounds like a lot of fun, but I don't have much
experience with some of this stuff like unzipping files.  It's okay if
you're laughing because I am lol.

By the way, I'm totally blind and I use Jaws with Windows XP.

I look forward to talking with all of you.


Your new friend Trina.

Live life to the fullest!!!!!
Love and take care of each other, and keep smiling!!!
