Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 11:48, 25 August 21Hi Mark,I had a look at the CDTview on CPC-Power and apparently "DISC" is normal for that game, the first four blocks are there.It may have something to do with the NoAMSDOS protection to attempt to prevent transfer to disk? I'll keep digging around anyway.

I've recovered several game and music cassette tapes this way.

Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 15:25, 25 August 21Yeah greedy opportunists have driven up the prices on practically every format. Covid didn't help either!I bought a ioad of blank tapes and converted CDT images to wav and used a modern tape recorder with USB input to make custom compilations. In case I ever actually want to use the tape deck. It works quite well, I made a couple of *monster* compilations with CNGSoft's compressed games. Something like 75 games on one C90.
