KSP theme being played on an old Apple IIe computer

Recommended Posts

Hello

I just got a new soundcard for my 30 year old Apple IIe computer and I coded up a 6-channel version of the KSP theme as a demo.

This is simply the greatest KSP retro work ever made. Absolutely glorious. As a fan of retro gaming, I wholeheartedly approve :)

Where did you get the retraux images/graphics from (in the video!)

The graphics on the screen while the music is playing are just screenshots from an older version of KSP, that I scaled down in size and then reduced to the six colors the 6 the Apple II has in high-res mode.

The music I made by hand based on some sheet music I found online.

The gameplay after the music is from a version of KSP I made in Appplesoft BASIC a few years ago (that had a much worse, 1-bit beeper version of the theme)

This is awesome. If only I had an Apple IIe to run it on!

Not quite the same, but you can run everything in an emulator.  For the 6-channel sound demo you'd need to run something like MAME or AppleWin (they both have Mockingboard support) and this disk image:

If you just want to play the Applesoft BASIC version of the game you can actually use a web-browser based emulator such as

and the following disk image:

I will warn though that it's a bit tricky to play, and *really* slow.

Thanks, I'll try this!
