The future ,
If you have a 2meg or greater St/Ste and would be
intrested in a version specifically for these machines , then drop me
a line indicating your interest.I could easily add loads more samples
,only 1 disc access , more graphics etc.The cost would be 2.00 pounds
for an upgrade if enough people were interested.
Again if enough people were interested I could make the
Stos source code avaliable for a small price . This would include
all the uncompressed graphics and sounds files together with numerous
utility programs including a rather splendid Map editor.
Coming to an St near you
