This game is seriously big, the type-in comprised of 7 BASIC programs with Machine Code Loaders to poke the data into memory (parts 1-5 @ 13Kb in size, 6 @ 12Kb & 7 @ 6 Kb), ACU forgot to advise how to save all that Machine Code once poked in, though to save poking the data in every-time I've saved the Binary file (18Kb in size) and included a loader (DISC.BAS) to correct the sound effects.
