I was thinking that since you need to load DOS in order to save files (with this cartridge) that I wasn't sure a binary-load of Music Composer exe file would allow DOS functions.....and I wanted the manual. So I bought one that came with the manual from Ebay.
I first scanned this at 200dpi and made roughly 1700 x 2200 pixel quality jpegs and then made a quality PDF....turned out to be 34 megabytes - ouch! So I resized the pix all to 850 pixels wide and saved them at "7/10 quality" and then made another PDF and resulted in this one, that looks good - just not as crisp...but roughly 3.5 megabytes....quite manageable.
I'll attach it here. I think there may be a "quick reference card" that I do not have. Anybody willing to scan just that?
What a pain! I finally got it to post here!
This board only allows max attachment size of 2MB so I had to use RAR compression and split it in 2. Then, I uploaded the first part and it said "that type of file not allowed" for some reason.
So I renamed the file extensions to ".zip" and it accepted it. YOU NEED TO RENAME IT BACK TO ".rar" TO EXTRACT THIS!
Once you download, you may need to (in Windows explorer) go to the folder where the files are, then go to "TOOLS" drop-down menu, then selct "FOLDER OPTIONS" then select "VIEW" tab and then uncheck (in the list) "hide extensions for known file types" so you can rename this back to .rar. (I understand most of you here know this but in case a newbie downloads this!!)
