Too bad I can't see the scans without making a forum account.

I'm actually curious by what you meant by very interesting and advanced BASIC. What did it do that made you say this?

Hello Parn, well it has some commands that seem very innovative, for example: Joyst( for addressing a joystick, onerrgoto for handling errors, MUSIC, PLAY, RENUM the latter for automatic renumbering within Basic, to name just a few. Some of these commands seem also be common for MSX which makes both machines quite modern for those days. I just would like to see this BASIC in action. I as a kid had a VIC20 and a c64 like many other ones here in germany but their BASIC was quite poor, I have to admit.

There isn't that much fun in emulating it if there's only a handful of programs to run on it...

I understand, although my approach is different. I believe that every system is worth preserving, even if it is with the help of an emulator.

But I will respect each of your decisions, because I have no work with it, just some selfish ideas.

Indeed Sad

Maybe Bodhi1969 can download the files and make them public here?
