The last time I dealt with Apple 2GS emulators for Windows, I found two: one had a graphics bug and no low-resolution support, and the other couldn't handle the disk images. Have these been fixed? Are there new emulators available?

As the developer of xgs/32 ... i highly doubt it will work with any modern computer. :)

That is good to know. I downloaded it a while back, but I have not actually tried to use it yet.

I tried GSport, but when I attach a .2MG file and reboot, I get the monitor. The low resolution graphics mode works, though. :)

Have Nick Westgate send you his latest version (GSport31.zip or GSport32e.zip) or look for it online. Unzip it to the windows "C:\Program Files (x86)\GSport" directory/folder. It is important to add ROM1 and ROM3 into this directory also. Then do the configuration to set it up for how you want it to act and tell it where your boot/auxiliary disk images are located. It can handle quite a few disks, for example:

# GSport configuration file version 0.31

s5d1 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/ProSel/ProSel 16/ProSel16.2mg
s5d2 = #C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/ProSel/ProSel/ProSel.2mg

s6d1 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/APPLE DOS 3.3 SYSTEM MASTER.dsk
s6d2 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/ProDOS 2.4.1.dsk

s7d1 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/GSport Internet Starter Kit/GSport Internet Starter Kit.2mg
s7d2 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/HDDV01.HDV
s7d3 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/HDDV02.HDV
s7d4 = #C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/GEOS.HDV
s7d5 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/AppleWorks/v5,1/AW51 Installed/AW51Installed (1440).PO
s7d6 = #C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/AppleWorks/v5,1/AW51 Installed/AW51Installed (5120).PO
s7d7 = C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/Asimov/Asimov_v2.0.2mg
s7d8 = #C:/Users/Public/Documents/Apple Computer/Apple-II Disks/ProSel/ProSel 8,16/Glen Bredon's ProSEL/prosel8v4.2mg

g_joystick_type = 1
g_cfg_rom_path = ROM3
g_parallel = 1
g_win_status_debug_request = 0
g_win_show_console_request = 0
g_limit_speed = 0

...

Then run it again.

I was experimenting with it a month or two ago. I found it was not able to "double the height nor double the width of its window" on my windows 7 system.

I thank all of you for your information, but it seems to not accept .2mg disk images. Anyway, when I try to use one, I get the 2GS monitor. :(

Ok, this may actually be an issue with the emulator core. There are
situations where it won't cycle through the slots and boot the
next-available thing.

When you hit the monitor, try:
*C500G
(without the asterisk, obviously) and see if it boots your disk.
