An Intoduction to Basic...

Postby willg » Sun Apr 09, 2017 1:18 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can get copies of the cassettes that came with the 'Introduction to Basic" series that I can use on my shiny new SD2IEC?

I had both parts in the early 80's, long since lost (Mum binned them).

It would be a great blast of nostalgia to load them again :)

Thanks!

Thanks!

A quick look round seems to indicate that I can extract the .prg files from taps so I'll give it a shot.

As a side note when I first got a Vic in 1982 if anyone said I'd have 2Gb of storage attached to it I'd have laughed. Mind you I had no idea what a gigabyte was in those days...

In '82 me too :)
In case of problems, just use this tool: http://style64.org/dirmaster
(EDIT: sorry but it's not for .tap as far as I know; but you can use the Vice monitor: alt+m, s "filename.prg" 0 <start_address> <end_address>
EDIT2: FinalTap is ok http://www.subchristsoftware.com/finaltap.htm)

Thank you so much - I really enjoyed rediscovering those programs again after all these years!
