Disable tape prompt when loading multiple files
« on: 02:23, 08 October 21 »
Hi all,


I've got a game, written in BASIC, that loads some binary files into memory. All works well on disk, but when using a tape I get the prompt "Press play then any key" every time the program attempts to load the next file from the cassette. Is there any way I can disable this prompt at all so that all the binary files can be loaded without bothering the poor user?


Thanks in advance for any help.

Put a ! before the filename to load silently, e.g. LOAD "!stuff",&c000

I didn't know that! I always wondered what that meant.
