Re: Dunjunz tapes for sale!

Super. Time is not an issue for me. I would just be delighted to add another Dragon game to the collection, they don't come along too often. It is a lovely idea to do an inlay. I still don't have a physical disk-drive, and still enjoy loading from tape. Is there a signed for first class price? Is it...

Re: Dunjunz tapes for sale!

May I ask if there are any of these left, and if so are they still the same price?
I must have missed this thread. Reading apparently is not my strong point....

Re: Fantasy Fight - Cable software.

This encouraged me to dig mine out and load it up for the first time in years. The game is stupidly hard, I had forgotten hpw dificult it was. I recall enjoying it when cheating all those years ago. Incidentally, my version must be late, as despite the correct Cable packaging on the outside, the cas...

Re: Dunjunz

Looking forward to having a go at this. I sadly missed out on playing the recent Hobbit (I have not used emulation since the late 90's/early naughties and don't have a disk drive :oops: ) but I think its fabulous that there are still dedicated people producing Dragon (and Tandy) software. I will be ...

Re: Loading cassettes - IO ERRORs

I have about 250 odd original tapes (including duplicates), and my fail rate is under 4%. It is often the tape player- I have found that switching to a modern upright tape player sometimes does the trick where the traditional type fails. Lots of Dragon games came with 2 or more copies on, so be cert...

Re: Buzzard Bait Cracked - Wave File

Below is a wave file created from the misnamed "Buzzard Bait (1984)(Microdeal)[cr].zip" found in http://archive.worldofdragon.org/archive/index.php?dir=Tapes/Dragon/cas/Microdeal/ it has been tested in XRoar but not yet on a real Dragon. Unlike the other cracks, this version retains the "Tom Mix" l...

Re: Hello all - ex Dragon owner

I see. How does that work vis-a-vis Cashman, Demon seed and all the other super long loaders around 84/5? Were they ever dongled at any point prior to release? Or was it just a case of using the format so that they could introduce the dongle to everything at a later date? BB really was great- FWIW I...

Re: Tee Off

Fantastic work.
Until I saw I saw it on Ebay a couple of months back thought this game did not even physically exist in the small cassette form......I hope nobody spent a small fortune to get the tape.

Re: Hello all - ex Dragon owner

Well worth the wait at 1.5 mins- and a vast improvement on ten mins plus.....

I wonder if the real aim of the extended loader was to make sure c15/c20 tapes would not fit the games, making them less attractive to copy......

Re: Hello all - ex Dragon owner

Thanks, great idea. The Buzzard Bait case certainly has room for another cassette with a truncated version..... :D IIRC Buzzard Bait was indeed released without the dongle- certainly for the Coco, pretty sure for the Dragon too. Every version of Cashman I have ever seen has been the super long one t...
