The latest version of AppleWin has emulation for Microsoft CP/M SoftCard, which is very nice addition.
So far I managed to find and boot CP/M and it works fine. The GBASIC seems to support the Apple II graphics modes and probably other Apple II specific features.
I remember having back in 1992 a CP/M SoftCard clone but I abandonned it fast and sold it, because most of the software I had was Word Processors and DataBases in text modes. I remember business used the Z80 card a lot and mostly ignored the 6502 software. The Apple II owners instead of buying new computer, bought Z80 card and used the business software for CP/M.
So my question is - is there any CP/M (Z80) software that utilizes the Apple II sound, graphics and input capabilities (Joystick, Tape). I would love to see the games/applications that I wasn't able to run until now, because they required Z80. I know using Apple II features makes the specific CP/M software unusable on other CP/M configurations, because CP/M used text terminal for portability, but still there are may be some software written for this combination, except the MBASIC and GBASIC available on the CPM boot disk.
P.S. Video of me running CP/M -
