The Treasure Hunt
Yours For the Downloading
by Douglas Cuff
Welcome back to the Treasure Hunt! This month, regular columnist Charlie Hartley is taking a leave of absence, but he'll be back next month.
I thought we'd take a closer look this month at some of the "Best of A2" disks that A2 RoundTable staff created back in 1991 and 1992. If this column has encouraged you to do any exploring on your own, you'll probably have seen these files, which were designed to fit on a single 800K 3.5" disk. Since the short descriptions don't give you much of an idea exactly what these archives hold, I thought GEnieLamp A2 should provide detailed lists.
Here are the 9 "Very Best of A2" archives:
|17180||BEST.A2.ART.BXY||2 Dec 1991||double hi-res pictures|
|18761||BEST.OF.SHR.BXY||2 Jun 1992||super hi-res pictures|
|17586||BEST.3200.BXY||1 Feb 1992||3200-color pictures|
|16957||BEST.ICONS1.BXY||2 Nov 1991||icons|
|19399||BEST.FONTS.BXY||13 Sep 1992||fonts|
|17897||BEST.UTILS.BXY||1 Mar 1992||8-bit utilities|
|17356||BEST.GAMES.BXY||1 Jan 1992||8-bit games|
|18976||BEST.OF.MS.BXY||31 Jun 1992||Music Studio songs|
|16728||BEST.EAMONS.BXY||29 Sep 1991||Eamon adventure games|
This month, we'll just look at the first three, all of which are archives of pictures.
The A2 Library
The following files are the "pick of the crop" for May, and can be found in the Apple II Roundtable library. A "+" before the number indicates it can be used on an 8 bit Apple.

Either of the last two files are "must haves" for those of you that are relatively new to GEnie. Even experienced hands may find these useful as well.
