One for the wargame fans - 1815, but in an English disk version. It only runs under Shortsed which has no !SAVE command, so save game to disk is not working.

GAMEINIT with the !SAVE command added, anyone?

I translated the game and the manual back in the day! Uploaded to Oric.org:

Can the 4 'Images' TAP files be combined into one file for uploading to Oric.org?

Yes, and it's easy to DIY:

for any Windows (DOS) in command prompt type:

Code: Select all

C:> copy /b file0.tap + file1.tap + file2.tap newfile.tap
for Linux in console type:

Code: Select all

$ cat file0.tap file1.tap file2.tap > newfile.tap
Attached is the combined 'IMAGES' file.

a little off topic , a little time ago i put a couple of programs on here in WAV format not knowing the the site had limited capacity , since then ive tried to think how to overcome that problem but with little success , as im not able to convert Wav to Tap format that leaves me to something of a dilemma anyone have any answer to this problem , Ive thought of sending them by E-Mail which has a greater capacity but i would have to have an friendly person who would agree to that , any other ideas ?

@coolman66 : Yes, i purpose https://wetransfer.com/ and select some experts. At least ceo(a)oric.org, i'll share the file with some.
Then you share the link. I'm sure that some expert on software conversion will be able to get the files and launch the conversion process

... any other ideas ?
What about Google Drive to upload WAV files?
Then I can help to convert all WAV's to TAPs.

Else, thanks for all your work, @coolman66!
