I've solved the picture puzzle, and now have the conical flask, but I can't think what to do next. Am I supposed to guess a number combination for the fax machine or microwave?

(Recoded from a design discovered in an old folder, dating back to about '92. Produced for my own amusement. Not much to the actual game!)

Looks great, but, i can't get the SCL file to load in Fuse. What's the best emulator to load .SCL files?

Have you got Spectaculator? That just opens .scl without having to worry about configurations.

It’s a TR-DOS image. You need to enable the Beta Disk 128 interface in Fuse’s preferences.

Yep, downloaded Spectaculator and got the game up and running.

Just like R-Tape I've finished the pic puzzle, but, no idea what to do now:

What semaphore is being used once you finish the pic?

Aaah, I pressed a key too quickly and didn't see it properly. I assumed it was a celebration graphic, rather than a clue. It must be that.
