At Home with the Twiggy Mac

Sat Dec 12, 2015 2:32 pm

Here's a recent post from Mac GUI City:

Bring a piece of the famous Twiggy Mac prototype from 1983 home with you. Using technology developed exclusively for Mac GUI Vault, I have extracted some resources from the Twiggy System file and formatted them for use with production Macintosh systems. Below, please find the fonts and desk accessories from the Twiggy Mac system disk:

I'm going to try this out myself when I have a free moment, but I think this is a version of mini vMac patched to run the prototype:

They've also converted the twiggy image resources to standard Mac format, so you can boot the Twiggy (converted) images on Mini vMac 128k. It works great!

While investigating the original disks, they discovered that the images had overwritten older versions of the software. Unfortunately, not enough was still available in free space to recover. Also, the MacPaint disk only has a single side of the disk imaged, so the resulting image file won't boot; you need the MacWrite disk to boot, after which the MacPaint disk will run.

[edit] Silly me; your post was about the post about the converted images :) Hasn't it been about a month since the actual work was done though? I've had the images about that long.
