I'm using it for the first time in AppleWIN and am running into a problem using the "Format Data Disk" option in the FILE UTILITIES MENU. I select slot 6 drive 2 and get the error "IO ERROR - CHECK DISK DRIVE" I've tried this with images formatted for DOS and ProDOS (inserted in drive 2).
I also tried making a copy of the 816 Paint disk image, renaming it and then trying to use that as the data disk. I figured the original disk image would have the format the program expects, but that didn't work either. Does anyone have any ideas?
I was also wondering, is 816 Paint Apple IIgs only? It is labeled as such on apple2online.com, where I downloaded it, but it seems to run fine in AppleWIN, except for the issue mentioned above.
Alternatively, is anybody aware of any good alternatives to 816 Paint for the Apple IIe? I'm looking for a paint program to create single hi-res graphics that stores the graphics image in binary file, ideally with the hex in raster order.
Thanks much for any suggestions anyone has!
