and I'm still a bit stuck.
But I don't know how to do that.2. Load your BASIC program from a .P file.
Be sure to use the load option that does not do a hard reset of the emulator. For EightyOne and ZX81, use the LOAD “” command and not the GUI to start the load process.
If I type in LOAD "FILENAME" (FILENAME being a P file I have saved, eg "ESMERELDA"), I get an endless loading loop.
If I just type LOAD "", it doesn't bring up any kind of menu. (What it seems to do is load MCoder again.)
If I go to the File menu in EightyOne and select Open Tape, it just acts like a dropped a P file onto the window, ie it wipes MCoder and loads the new game instead, rather than merging it. The same thing happens if I drop the P file into the Tape Manager window or open it from the Tape Manager's "open tape" menu. It makes no difference if I disable Flash Load and/or Auto Start.
I can't find anything in the EightyOne menus that would equate to "put a tape in the cassette player but don't actually load it until I type LOAD""".
How do I get Esmerelda in without wiping MCoder?
