Apple III Titan Card

Today I picked up a lot of Apple goods -- (1) a rainbow ribbon Disk ][; (2) an external Disk III; (3) A couple disk ][ interface cards; and most interesting, (4) a Titan "III plus II" and "III plus IIe" card.  I got the lot for $40, which I thought was a pretty good deal.

Researching these cards, it appears they allow the user to bypass some of Apple's built in limitations on Apple II emulation in the III. I found a nice resource (including software .dsk images) here: http://mirrors.apple2.org.za/Apple%20II … lus%20IIe/

Does anyone have any experience with thees? Ultimately, I just wanted to know if these things were fairly solid/safe to use in my new Apple III (since it's the only one I have!)  I pulled it out of another Apple III this guy had that had a bad PS, so I don't know if it works (but everything else I have gotten from this guy seems to work...)

Thanks!

Re: Apple III Titan Card

Very nice find!

If you're in facebook, do check the Apple /// Enthusiasts -group as somebody there just got the same card (Titan) i believe - so help might be at hand.
