Guided Tour of Macintosh Mac128k

This is a software and audio cassette demonstration of the Apple Macintosh. It visually guides you through the use of Macintosh, the Finder, and typical Macintosh applications. This software and cassette were bundled with the Apple Macintosh System Software.

Macintosh 128k m68k version, January 1984, Documentation Part Number: Disk 690-5002A, Audio Cassette 942-0387A (Side 1:027-0013A, Side 2: 027-0014A). Includes 400k disk image and an MP3 audio file of the cassette.

This January 1984 disk contains a customized pre-release of the Macintosh System Software. (System 0.85 Finder 1.0). Most notably, the system icons still show a Macintosh with a Twiggy 5.25" floppy drive. Additionally, this finder does not hide the "desktop" file, which causes a slight visual glitch in one of the demonstrations.

Installation instructions

To use this software, boot this disk in an emulator or on a real Macintosh and begin playing the included cassette tape audio file.

Important: This software is very buggy. It is only intended for the original Macintosh 128k. It may crash or run too fast in emulators.

This software has been tested and works in the PCE Mac emulator (pce-20181220-e6a7ff9d-mac-128-0.1.zip). However, the demonstration programs may load a little too fast, requiring you to wait about two or three seconds after the "tone" before pressing the buttons. Once the demonstration starts, the playback speed is correct and matches the tape.
