Re: Laser 2001 & Salora Manager - official thread

What is the process/the changes you made to the loading system? I am not too sure I read this correctly 1. you have created 'tape' files with the typical Salora Manager BASIC listing for the 'loader' but modified in a way that the games start with the typical CV demo mode 2. you append the ROM file ...

Re: Hello from UK (sometimes Australia, originally South Africa)

Paul, you are absolutely and forever welcome in this forum - actually I am surprised I never noticed you never introduced yourself, although having posted quite a few times. Paul, not only you are a talented musician and programmer, but also a very keen CreatiVision enthusiast, and I love your Kapoo...
