Here's yet another patch for a diskmag created by yours truly.
Code is more or less fine so it wasn't that much work. Worth
mentioning is that most of the files were loaded with a trackdisk
loader which handles files, not too common for 1990 and most probably
done because the coder couldn't find out how to load files with
dos.library when the system is killed, the lot of "try to restore
level 2 interrupt" routines are also a clear sign of that.
There was a somewhat amusing bug in the file loader, instead of
calling Close() after reading the file data the coder called Open()
again. No idea what he was thinking. :)
The nice intro is supported, if you want to skip it you can use
the CUSTOM1 tooltype.
Enjoy the mag from HD and have a nice weekend everyone.
