Interesting. I'd only previously seen the Spectrum version (that was on the 16/48 tape magazine) but they were obviously selling it for both Amstrad and C64 too.

I need to update our CASA references, as they don't have those two platforms. Thanks for posting about it.

No joy with the link I'm afraid and I think maybe it should have been called - Operation Enigma?

Yeah, first time I clicked on it it led to a blank page, later it worked fine. I've had some intermittent broadband problems here so I'm sure that's the cause.

Same thing happened to me on another thread.


Paste the url and don’t use the [ url ] tag.

Yeah, been trying to work this one out since yesterday... not sure the same happened here, since it got 'fixed', but the bug *is* there.
