Well, there is only one reason: all games presented here are in standard +3DOS loading format – as opposed to proprietary protected disk format.
Basically, I wanted to be able to use my physical +3 like I do with any modern PC; a file should be copied from one disk to another with the standard tools provided by the operating system – in this case, the COPY command of the +3 Basic. Besides, I wanted to be able to run the programs from either A: or B: drive if/where available.
All games presented here can be loaded and/or copied like any other file and can run on A: or B: drive.
If you are looking for perfect original disk files, this is not the place for you !
Note: except where otherwise noted, only the loading routines were modified – either from direct disk access (protected or not) to +3DOS, or from tape to +3DOS.
