Howdy TIers. I hate to start a new thread, but I couldn't find a good place for it. So, I am working on a proof of concept for launching programs from a program: 100 CALL CLEAR 110 INPUT "FILENAME:":FL$ :: IF FL$="" THEN 110 120 RUN "DSK1."&FL$ But this gives * SYNTAX ERROR IN 120. However, if I change 120 to 120 PRINT "DSK1."&FL$ I get the expected string printed on the screen (i.e., if I type in LOAD for the input, I get DSK1.LOAD printed on the screen). Why does RUN not like this syntax? Is this possible through XB, or am I just wasting my time? Thanks for reading!
Hello! I recently got a CoCo 1 and have been trying to get it load programs via a Cassette cable I bought off Ebay. Here's how it goes: I load the .wav file onto the device. I get the wav files from here: http://www.colorcomputerarchive.com/coco/Cassettes/Games/ I connect the device via the cable to the device. I type 'CLOAD' (or CLOADM, as applicable) and then that little prompt in the corner comes up. I press play. It blinks. It gets the correct name of the program. It appears to be loading. The recording stops. The little light blinks: 'OK' it says. Now when I type 'Run', nothing happens. I type 'List' and there's no program loaded. It's like it wasn't loading anything at all. :-/. What's going on? How can I potentially fix it? I've tried various volume levels but that doesn't seem to matter. I KNOW it's loading /something/ because it's detecting the name of the program while it loads. :-/.
