Re: MZ-700 tape not loading software

Re: Galactica

Wow cool. What computers does it support. Well, it's effectively as it says "MZ-80". But as it's from Japan you may get some funny characters on the screen which don't make sense (because you would need to either swap out your CG-ROM on your physical machine for a Japanese CG-ROM or you need to rep...

Hello.
In BASIC, you have the "MERGE" command...
Just make sure the line numbers don't overlap the "main" program.
Is this is Sharp Basic SP5025 (The one that came with the MZ80K which is the only sharp PC i have running). I'd like to use this concept in a quiz game.
