Looks awesome, can't wait!

Hey thanks for all the help guys. Out of desperation I imaged a new floppy (overwriting the existing one) and it failed with a bad sector. Created another disk on a fresh floppy and it worked and the game boots!
Don't know why it never gave any indication of a disk fault when trying to load before but sorry to have wasted your time when it was my own fault all the same.
Anyway the demo was terrific so gonna buy a copy now :D
PS. Is there any way to have the game remember your initials so you don't have to enter them at the end of every race?
Thanks for the suggestion - I did as you suggested but basically got the same result. I could see those files in the root of the floppy when I edited the SS so don't know why it's not seeing them...
I'm trying to load the demo on my A1200 but can't get past this screen, even though I've held 2 buttons down and disabled everything except DF0:
I do have a Blizzard 1230 MkIV with SCSI attachment but can't see any way to disabled that in the menu.
I'll be saving to floppy disk thankfully :) I've successfully got the checksum tool working now. Ironically the tool doesn't work on itself - I made several mistakes typing the numbers in which kept resulting in an out of data error!
I've ordered myself one of those magnifying rulers which will help me to both read what I need to type and keep track of where I'm up to (I'll be printing the listings out to work off).
Will be great to eventaully have another program that I can use my 1351 mouse with too!
Am I correct in thinking that I only need to type in the shorter v2.1 listing if I'm not bothered about joystick compatibility?
This is awesome - I used to spend hours and hours typing in listings on my VIC20 and C64 back in the day. This is really brining those memories flooding back. Of course back in the 80's I didn't have to contend with wearing varifocal glasses but I'm sure I will manage. The use of the checksum tool is a stroke of genius which will hopefully ensure I have a working game of solitaire at the end of it all! Just waiting for my C64 to come back from being re-capped and then I'll get stuck in!
Thanks, fantastic presentation on the game. Control seems a bit frustrating though. Is there a away to stop the witch from constantly drifting over to the right hand side leading to certain death? Can't help feel like it would be more fun if you stayed in the middle third of the screen - at least you can see what's coming then and try to avoid it? Otherwise everything else is spot on.
I already bought the physical cartridge version off you last year via your Indigogo campaign but would love to be able to play it on my mini too. Is there a means for people like myself to get this without having to buy it again please?
