Re: UDM DDFS

Hi Nigel,

I used EELOAD on my Master, so I 'hope' it's on this disk image as file UDM01. Let me know if it's ok, otherwise I may need help to dump the UDM ROM.

Thanks, Paul

Ok, been through boxes and I don't seem to have a copy of Dart. I found a tape version of MicroPower Draw, but that is a LOGO subset and doesn't include external Turtle support. Pretty sure that the DART I was using was a downloaded disc image, but not sure which. I'll let you know if it is the late...

Re: Master vs Master Compact

I love my Compact! When they first came out I couldn't see the point, as our school had Beebs & Masters. I picked up a Compact keyboard unit a couple of years ago and just love it now.

I finished Level 1 but then got distracted. So no score yet.
The controls are certainly "fussy" on jsbeeb - I'll try a real machine.
Yes, I found it better on my master! Put in your score, Richard - I need some competition on the low score end!! :lol:
