This demo requires a standard issue BBC Master 128K computer. Only MOS 3.20 has been tested, other MOS versions may be supported. Let us know!
All 4x sideways RAM banks 4 - 7 must be available for use. If you have ROMs installed internally these may be occupying sideways RAM banks. You will need to remove them and check links LK18 and LK19 are set correcly as per the Master Reference manual.
PAGE must be &1900 or lower. Type "P.~PAGE" in BASIC to check your value. If this is higher than &E00 then you may have a ROM installed that is claiming precious RAM! Try unplugging any non-essential ROMS with *UNPLUG.
Coprocessors and the Tube must be disabled. Type *CONF.NOTUBE and reset.
This demo has been tested on real floppy disc hardware, Retroclinic DataCentre and MAMMFS for MMC devices.
