Bomb Squad (American Software, 1982)

Recommended Posts

Scored a cassette of this old American Software title, but the tape is bad.  :(  Does anyone have a .zip of it they could share?

Correct.  This ^^^ is the instruction booklet.  Unfortunately this wasn't one of the companies that recorded the program on both sides of the tape, so if one's bad, that's all you got.

 

I've had amazing luck with these old cassettes overall, but this one has confounded me.

Have you tried tweaking the head tracking...
...do you get "data ok","error detected" or "no data found"...
...using real hardware or EMU...

I'm using real hardware and a reliable TI tape recorder set to the default settings.  It's the tape, it drags in several places and the integrity of the audio gets noticeably choppy.  I'm going to try tightening it up by rewinding and FF'ing it a few times -- I had another tape do the same thing last night, but then play fine the second time through.

Many thanks!

 

I had Psyborg on tape back in the day.  I ordered all the TImagination games years after the fact, contacting the author through his PO Box.  I wish I still had those.
