GRAND PRIX (ISSUE 18): Several
readers had problems in running a cassette version of Grand Prix
due to a couple of errors in the load and save routines. In BOTH
the Cassette Loader and Saver routines the figure 39936 in line
30 should be amended to 39935.
Additional points which may help
are to slightly amend the procedure for making a cassette. Follow
the instructions on page 33 but add - Step 4a. Type NEW (RETURN)
- Step 5 a. Type NEW (RETURN) and Step 6a. Switch off and re-boot.
Following these procedures you
should have no problems. The main listing is fully correct.
BERTIE (ISSUE 18): The instructions
for cassette were not clear. The second listing should be saved
immediately after the first by using SAVE "C:". If you then change
the CLOAD in line 150 to RUN "C:" the second program will load and
Jason Halpin from Ireland suggested
the following amendment. Use CSAVE for the second listing as normal
and change line 150 of Listing 1 to
150 RESTORE 190: FOR
1554: READ A: POKE I,A: NEXT I: POKE 764,12: A=USR(1536)
and add lines 190 to 192
190 DATA 162,253,154,169,183,72,169
191 DATA 84,72,169,4,32,182,187,169
192 DATA 255,76,4,187
Listing 2 will then run from the
title without any further action.
BLITZ (ISSUE 18): Mr Goodbody
from Harrow wrote to point out that the attract mode was not disabled
and suggested amending line 1000 to:
1000 BOMB=1: BCH=O: POKE 77,0
LIVINGSTON BBS (ISSUE 18): The
telephone number should be 0506 38526 and not as stated.
