Unfortunately using the "Make ASCII file" method on one of the unreadable files creates a new text file that also fails to open with "Not a Locoscript document".


I'm going to need a Locoscript 2.x disk.


(Anyone got one?)  :D
Thanks!

Yes, that behaviour is normal.  :)
 
You must create a new LocoScript file, and then, insert the ascii one with F7 Modes > Insert text, as you can see in the attached image.
