speaking of old tape loading days, anyone remember doing anyold traditions to try to get dodgy cassetes to load. I remember on my speccy holding the play button down everytime i loaded the great escape, then if i got a load the machine stayed on for days[/quote:af8108dd69]

I usually had the C64 tape as far away from the C64 as possible and usually covered it with a coat after having twiddled with the azimuth alignment and findind a good spot by “reading” the fastloader border color lines – which eventually you could just read and know which patterns meant you were getting good alignment. Then there was the ram pack for my ZX81 which would only work with a glass of ice sitting on it (over heating problem).
