|Summary||08398: apple3: Softcard /// CP/M version 2.21 runs very slowly|
|Description||CP/M 2.20 runs just fine on the Apple 3 with a Microsoft Softcard /// in a slot. However, the update to 2.21 incorporated changes that appears to slow to a crawl on mame, but not on real hardware. There is about a 1/2 second delay between typing characters and them appearing on the screen. Any program that displays lines of text on the screen seems to pause between lines.|
|Steps To Reproduce||
mame apple3 -skip_gameinfo -sl4 softcard3 -flop1 e:\apple3\A3CPM221MASTER.dsk
Try some commands, CAT, DIR, CONFIG and notice the slowness.
I am attaching the (hard to find on the internet) A3CPM221MASTER.dsk for testing purposes,

Apologies for the image deletion. Could you provide the image for this report via MAMEDEV's submission email listed at the site linked below and note the MT REPORT number and circumstances as well?
As you mentioned, the available 2.2 version seems to boot and function properly and quick search has not discovered 2.21 for testing.

The floppy disk image has been submitted by the method you wanted and thanks for looking into this.

|With the image I can see how typing is delayed and, all the while the emulation speed reads 100%, it is not performing as 2.20 does.|
