I don't know if a slot version would easily be made. The current version uses the smartport protocol. So as I understand it, a slotted version would basically require building a full disk controller with smartport support in addition to the FujiNet. At that point, you might as well buy a Yellowstone card and just attach the FujiNet. Or the entire FujiNet interface would have to be redone to be a slot device. Which would probably be a fairly large undertaking. 


But I also think right now there are some compatibility issues with FujiNet and Yellowstone. I'm sure it will eventually get worked out. But right now I believe this is limited to //c (except rom 255) and IIgs with built in smartport.

Is anyone selling this Apple II version of Fujinet in the US?


Is there a planned slot compatible version?


If you are talking about a version that lets usage of your plugged cards, placed over the DB19 connector,

a straight version can be manufactured if you need it, no extra charges :)

Some testing performed, regarding the capabilities of Fujinet (FujiApple)

to provide multiple hard disk / disk drives emulation at once,



Fujinet for Apple IIgs is a multiple drive emulator at once,

you can boot GE OS from drive slot 1, while something different is loaded at another drive slots.


As well, in ProDOS, you can use up to 4 different drives,

as far I tested


Some images of Drive A and Drive B at once using GE OS from 1988,

I suppose a old version, probably version 6.0.4 is much better
