TrueType fonts on Apple IIgs? Never knew it was possible. Quality of printouts must be amazing considering the fact this machine is no more powerful than a PC XT and its OS have its roots in the 70s.

I have a copy of Sweet16 3.0.3 (with GS/OS 6.0.1) for many years on my Mac. My original intention was to use that familiar interface to run some old Apple ][+ and Apple //e board games. Didn't take the time to try it seriously and still don't know if it is possible.

Need to test this CD-ROM with GS/OS 6.0.x, which supports TrueType fonts as well. Smile
