Installation instructions

This software contains copy protection. For your convenience, an unprotect has been applied to the extracted files in the Files folder, so they are ready to run.

This archive contains one 320k (8-sector double sided) disk image in Transcopy, TeleDisk, Copy II PC, and ImageDisk format. These images will recreate the original copy protected disk. See the Unprotect folder for a patch. SuperCard Pro and Kryoflux images have also been added.

Note: These disks are formatted for DOS 1.1 and therefore utilities like WinImage may not be able to read them.

Note: To run this in DOSbox you must have a floppy image mounted so the reported number of installed floppy drives is greater than zero.
