Founded in February 1983, Locomotive Software was the software house which developed the CPC's BASIC and operating system, and played a pivotal role in other Amstrad home computers of the time. The company was founded by [[Richard Clayton]] and Chris Hall.[ clonazepam online] [,file=133 xenical online] [ cingular ringtones] [,file=119 cheap cialis] [ generic alprazolam] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832227) cheap nexium] [,file=116 fioricet online] [ free funny ringtones] [,file=144 mp3 ringtones] [ ultracet online] [ ativan online] [,file=152 free verizon ringtones] [ diazepam online] [ free ericsson ringtones] [ online rivotril] [ free ringtone] [ carisoprodol online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832255) cheap xanax] [ free ringtones] [$125 free tracfone ringtones] [,file=125 buy vicodin] [ wwe ringtones] [,file=113 buy phentermine] [,file=135 cyclobenzaprine online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832250) verizon ringtones] [ buy hydrocodone] [ xenical online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832218) levitra online] [ order hydrocodone] [ meridia online] [ free nokia ringtones] [ cheap ultram] [,file=111 cheap soma] [,file=138 order propecia] [ buy ativan] [ cheap adipex] [ cheap lorazepam] [$114 free samsung ringtones] [ free mono ringtones] [ sprint ringtones] [ cheap soma] [ celexa online] [ vicodin online] [ buy cialis] [ free sonyericsson ringtones] [ canadian casino online] [ cyclobenzaprine online] [ qwest ringtones] [ free polyphonic ringtones] [ buy ultram] [ xanax online] [,file=142 tracfone ringtones] [ qwest ringtones] [ cheap lipitor] [ ultram online] [,file=136 nexium online] [$118 sony ericsson ringtones] [ ativan online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832257) xenical online] [ generic cialis] [$91 carisoprodol online] [ sagem ringtones] [ meridia online] [ free nextel ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832194) cheap tramadol] [ carisoprodol online] [ mixing valium and xanax] [ norco online] [ generic valium] [ cyclobenzaprine online] [ order clonazepam] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832216) free kyocera ringtones] [ cheap adipex] [ free sonyericsson ringtones] [ cheap carisoprodol] [,file=130 cheap hydrocodone] [ sony ericsson ringtones] [ cheap meridia] [ cheap zanaflex] [ cingular ringtones] [ cheap viagra] [ wwe ringtones] [ free nokia ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832225) free mtv ringtones] [ cheap vicodin] [ generic meridia] [ sony ericsson ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832238) sagem ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832236) qwest ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832243) sony ringtones] [ cheap tramadol] [ free qwest ringtone] [ free polyphonic ringtones] [ but xanax] [,file=155 free sagem ringtones] [ free funny ringtone] [ sony ericsson ringtones] [,file=121 viagra online] [,file=141 free ringtones] [ free samsung ringtones] [ buy ambien] [ valium half life] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832248) buy ultram] [,file=157 free sony ericsson ringtones] [ cheap phentermine] [ valium side effects] [$134 cheap valium] [$95 cheap diazepam] [ free samsung ringtone] [ hoodia online] [ cheap diazepam] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832224) mp3 ringtones] [ cheap viagra] [ xanax online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832241) cheap soma] [ but adipex] [ cheap cialis] [ order pharmacy online] [ soma online] [ hydrocodone online] [ buy didrex] [ lorazepam online] [ funny ringtones] [ cheap sildenafil] [ levitra online] [ free tracfone ringtones] [ casino craps online] [ free ringtone] [ didrex online] [ generic cialis] [ free mp3 ringtone] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832228) nextel ringtones] [ free jazz ringtones] [,file=148 motorola ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832235) punk ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832253) buy wellbutrin] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832204) cool ringtones] [$88 free alltel ringtones] [ free alltel ringtones] [ buy tramadol] [$106 free nokia ringtones] [ but viagra] [ cheap adipex] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832230) norco online] [,file=134 wellbutrin online] [,file=132 lorazepam online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832234) cheap propecia] [ sprint ringtones] [ ultracet online] [ order zoloft] [ cool ringtones] [ free tracfone ringtones] [ motorola ringtones] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832201) cheap cialis] [ levitra online] [ norco online] [ cheap phentermine] [ but carisoprodol] [ cheap cialis] [ injecting valium] [ free music ringtones] [ free motorola ringtones] [ generic clonazepam] [ free polyphonic ringtones] [ generic viagra] [$113 free sagem ringtones] [ alltel ringtones] [ diazepam online] [ cheap adipex] [ buy xanax] [ diazepam online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832220) meridia online] [ verizon ringtones] [ cheap viagra] [ carisoprodol online] [ cheap vicodin] [ cheap viagra] [$96 cheap fioricet] [ flexeril online] [ adipex online] [ soma online] [^WEBUTLTY(200,832222) mono ringtones] [ free sony ericsson ringtones] [ buy meridia] [$135 verizon ringtones] [ free cingular ringtones] [ valium online] [ nextel ringtones] [ free polyphonic ringtone] [ nextel ringtones] [$107 cheap norco] [ free midi ringtones] [$100 meridia online] [ real ringtones] [ diazepam online] [ cheap ultram] [ mp3 ringtones] [ but alprazolam] [ free samsung ringtone] [ free sprint ringtones] Founded in February 1983, Locomotive Software was the software house which developed the CPC's BASIC and operating system, and played a pivotal role in other Amstrad home computers of the time. The company was founded by [[Richard Clayton]] and Chris Hall.
Their first contract was to write a Z80 BASIC for Acorn's abortive ABC business computer project. This BASIC would prove pivotal in their future history, gaining them the 'in' for Amstrad's first computer.
LocoScript was the only program for the PCW that did not have to be booted from CP/M, as it contained its own firmware (though many supposedly 'CP/M' programs, such as Flipper and RoutePlanner, were in fact very much PCW-specific). The original version was followed by a greatly improved LocoScript 2 and a set of add-on programs (LocoMail, LocoSpell etc.). The program continued to be improved up to LocoScript 4, with better printed output as the main focus of the revisions.
Other Locomotive projects of the time included firmware for Amstrad's Spectrum models (after the company had acquired Sinclair), the + 2, + 2A and + 3; BASIC 2, for the Digital Research GEM windowing system used by Amstrad's PCs; and LocoScript PC, a PC port of the word-processor which found great favour with PCW upgraders but failed to make much headway elsewhere.
Locomotive was invited to pitch to write the software for the [[PCW16]], Amstrad's last 8-bit machine, but declined because they thought the deadline was unachievable. (Creative Technology's failure to complete by the specified date only proved that Locomotive had been correct.)
