Hi, I wanted to look at the listing of the game Encounter (https://www.oric.org/software/encounter-1165.html
) from Severn Software, and found out that both Oricutron and Tap2Bas were failing on the same place in the code:
Code: Select all
11150 IF(B$="PET")AND(PT=0)THENPRINT:PRINT"The petrol evaporates":
So I looked directly in Oricutron and noticed that this particular line, instead of finishing by a "GOTO15000" like all the ones above instead had a "NEXT WITHOUT FORT13550"!
Looking with an hex editor we can see that instead of a code 97 (GOTO) it has F7 54
So basically what I'm wondering is if it's some sort of anti-printing out protection, or if it's just the result of a bad dumping of the game.
I looked at 5 different versions (OricBase, one I had laying around, plus two others downloaded from random sites) and they all seem to be the exact same version.
If any of you has the game on tape, could you take a look at this line?
