I tried that, still does not work, gets to block 2B, then Data? and crashes....
BUT, if you use BackToLife (.CSW to .WAV) I can confirm it loads back into a actual real beeb \:D/
as the original tape does not :lol: (sideB was closest to working :x )

:lol: I got told how to do it by the expert years ago when he was running the acorn preservation site and I was doing conversions of the software I had at the time.

Did not bother with a UEFhq of these, as no 'streams' or extra blank space between the files. Can make it, if requested.... Thanks to MatthewThompson for not throwing in the bin, & at me instead =D>

BOOM-Shankar!

With the Beeb as spicy as this, it should have been illicit!

Electron :
Cybertron Mission - Program Power 1983
Frenzy - Micro Power 1984
Positron - Program Power 1983 (or Gary Partis Soft)

luckily, on all these, game recorded twice on side A, and blank on side B
so 2nd game copy worked first time, as 1st copy had the dreaded usual wind up start of tape

Five A Side Socca -IJK 1983 (or Star Soccer in the first loader by D M Smith) - Electron
IJK-FiveASideSocca-elk.jpg

IJK-FiveASideSocca-elk.jpg (17.42 KiB) Viewed 1334 times

this is a weird one, completely different from the BBC version, as that has 4 files to load (SOCCA, DATA1, DATA2 & DATA3)
now, when trying to load this Electron version (SOCCA, DATA1, ? (Locked))
into a BBC, it hangs on end of block 1A00, as if tape not long enough.. :? (? is load1781 call3100 len1B7E)
so wonder if the electron ULA can handle this last locked *RUN file, and the BBC can't :shock:
in the generated .TXT file, we have :

Code: Select all

The following block size is 280
THE EMPTY BLOCK FLAG IS WRONG.
Found :          ? 19	Checksum ok
31 data blocks written.
Carrier tone written, length 2140 waves.
Baud rate of the preceding data was 1321.596

The following block size is 280
THE EMPTY BLOCK FLAG IS WRONG.
Found :          ? 1A	Checksum ok
32 data blocks written.
Carrier tone written, length 2144 waves.
Dummy byte in carrier tone is &2A.
Carrier tone written, length 4 waves.
Dummy byte in carrier tone is &0D.
Carrier tone written, length 4 waves.
Dummy byte in carrier tone is &00.
Carrier tone written, length 4 waves.
Dummy byte in carrier tone is &81.
Carrier tone written, length 4 waves.
Baud rate of the preceding data was 1322.521

THE FIRST BYTE OF THE NEXT BLOCK IS NOT '*'.
The following block size is 7
DATA BLOCK WRITTEN WITH A BAD CHECKSUM OR NON-STANDARD BLOCK.
33 data blocks written.
MISREAD A BLOCK.
Carrier tone written, length 2 waves
anyways, one to ponder on!
The .UEFhq does not work on BeebEm414 or bEm22
But, does work fine on ElkulatorV1 ,
the .CSW does not, but put here anyways to play back to elk using BackToLife .CSW<>.WAV
(not tested as yet..) EDIT: Working 8)

Galactic Commander - Micro Power 1983 electron
Image
all work, but not on emulators, being ElkulatorV1 :?

when loading the CSW it has to be at tape speed slow.
It also 'crashes' after screen splash :shock: due to loading file COM1 @900
to get round this :
LOAD"COM2"
*L. COM1
RUN

bizzare, as works on a real elk :D

here is the original (not re-release Encore version)
also known as "Space Invasion" :shock:
(see insert : http://www.stardot.org.uk/forums/viewto ... 72#p202095 )

sideB was better to make the files, even though sideA sounded better :?

I have checked both sides, and are same,
after stealing a block from sideB (on actual beeb loaded) to confirm file COMSCR
