Adventure Trilogy appears to be incomplete

Post by Alastair » Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:56 pm

Adventure Trilogy (198x)(Dragon Data Ltd)[!].zip appears to be incomplete. The game attempts to load another program after the first part is completed and this fails because I don't think the .CAS file contains more than one program.

Also, how are you supposed to complete the first task? So far any success I've had has been down more to luck (by repeatedly typing 'A' and occasionally 'F') than to judgement.

The wav that I uploaded was the cleanest copy on the tape (recorded twice on both sides) which is from an original Dragon Data cassette. The wav is complete but I had only checked the game as far as the first part so it could be the quality of the recording?

Here are the instructions from the cassette cover:

Thanks for the scan of the instructions, at least I now know that typing F (for fireball) more than twice is futile.

I've downloaded your wave file and will test it to see if it contains the whole game.

I have just tested the wav file with xroar and I finally managed to get past the first part of the adventure and the second loaded successfully and took me to a tower leading down to a 3D maze.
So it must be the cas file that is the problem.

Yes, with the wave file I've also managed to reach the 3D maze, although I've not been able to get past the first room so I cannot do any further testing.

Anyway, taking the second recording in the wave file I've managed to produce a .CAS file that loads in two different versions of XRoar (see the attached file).
