Are these standard Speccy microdrives then? I do bet there's an army of speccy nerds out there willing to pull them apart :D

I'll be getting a QL sometime near in the future and it shouldn't be too difficult to copy the microdrives to a 3.5" disk and then creating a dsk file for our pleasure.

If you're after speed so badly, I would suggest to drop the slow byte-shift-thing and directly redraw the complete background using pre-shifted tiles/bitmaps in memory
That was the good solution , thank you for the hint  ;)
"NOP" is the perfect program : short , fast and (known) bug free
