I got a tape full of CoCo programs from my grandpa today. Most of them seem to be simple BASIC programs like you’d find in a magazine to enter yourself, but one of them struck me as different, as it takes quite a while to load.
I loaded it on to my CoCo 2, and ran it, and got a simple title screen that says “Success Manion – Press Any Key to Continue”.
Unfortunately, after I pressed the key, I got “The Adventure Begins…” followed immediately by “?OM Error In 3020″, which I gather means Out of Memory.
Has anyone played or heard of this game before? I tried a Google search on it, but didn’t really come up with anything, aside from a .DSK image that somehow referenced the name of the game (in an index, I guess) without actually containing the game.
I can try to load it on to my computer via my sound card if anyone wants to take a look at it. I suppose I could even extract the ASCII if I mess around with it in an emulator (it does look to be in BASIC). I don’t know if it’s actually too big, or if some programming error is causing it to try loading data into an address that doesn’t exist (I have 64k of RAM, by the way).
