Ha ha! Did you decode these or were they already posted somewhere? :geek:
once the program had loaded the enter code word screen.
i used MAME debugger to view the memory.
All the words can be seen in one long string.
So it was easy to split up into 5 letter codes. :ugeek: :lol:

this was too much like hard work. :P

B&H Demonstration Tape.
salvaged programs from poor WAV recording.
*unable to save "Tool Kit".

good news is, there was a demo of Moon Lander/Rescue with the missing lines needed in the Full version.
so that game code is complete now. 8-)

Trivial Crosswords (Quickbeam / *Pulser)
Cassette version.

you must load a question block 1-15 before the starting game.
use cursor keys to move to the start of word square, then press "A" for Across or "D" for Down clue.

If you send me the wav file for Toolkit, I can try to fix that one.

I managed to get the first 10 block out of the wav file.

If everything keeps the way it´s going, it will take some time but seems salvageable.

Nop, it seems to be a Toolkit (maybe Graphics Toolkit), from B&H Software 1983.
