Thanks Peter,

I realised I forgot to include either TAP version of LD-Snake (sorry @djnzx48), will amend that when possible.

Just to note that we are aware of some speed issues with certain searches using the advanced search. We are trying to track down the issues.

Thanks @Ralf, the loading screen seems incorrectly coded as a running screen (You can see the correct one at the bottom of the page). I'm sure the main main @R-Tape can update his spreadsheet with the next update.

Ta.

It's a double mistake. Firstly I seem to have labelled it as a run screen, secondly I thought saving as .mlt would preserve the shimmering effect (it doesn't).

Apart from that - perfect!

(On the list)

Nice work on the update!

Did these musical tape loaders ever end up in the archive?

Only Tap Music so far, I wanted to wait for downloadable material. I PMd @TheShich when he appeared.

Hi Ralf,

Did you only mean the name of the file should be adjusted? (marked as run when it should be load*)

Or did you also mean the image looks broken?

Image

All other formats are worse IMO - .gif and .scr have missing letters entirely due to the flickering effect. I suppose an animated .gif would do it, but I don't know if that's an option or if it's even worth it.

*logged for correction next time
