Was looking through my collection of tapes and found this oddity, I think I grabbed it simply because I had no idea what a Colour Genie was back in the mid 90s. I still don't have one.

 

Looked online but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere just a review.

 

Couldn't find a dedicated Colour Genie forum. Was wondering if I recorded a wav file of this and uploaded it would that be enough for someone to create a tape file out of it? Just want to share it in the interest of preservation.

It seems that the emulator Genieous can read and write to WAV files so possibly you could play it yourself that way. It also supports CAS files which are mostly the same format as those for the TRS-80/VideoGenie 1, though I haven't tried if you can load a WAV and then CSAVE as CAS from inside the emulator or need a separate tool.

I just had a go with the emulator because couldn't get it to react at all, not sure if I'm doing something wrong.

and this is a higher quality version and resulting cas.

Here's a link to the wavs and .cas files I made from them if anyone else wants to have a look.

 

Edit: Tried all 3 in the emulator and when it would react which seems a random, it was coming up with various errors.

Can't seem, to edit my previous post so managed to try and run all my rips on the emulator, before it stopped accepting any programs again, got these errors.

 

Side 1: UL Error in 32638
Side 2: SN Error in 65439
side2h: SN Error in 16353

 

Guess I'll try again at a higher rate. I've made another .cas file but can't get the emulator to work, sometimes it autoloads programs sometimes it doesn't

Well these are all still coming up with errors but I'll leave them here just in case someone can piece it together from them

I wonder if the tape may just be too deteriorated to recover after 30+ years in storage in an unknown environment.

Well I'm still working on this making my own custom converter program, after a bunch of attempts it came through very clean sounding.

 

Also been chatting with the guy who made the game back in the 80s.
