Hey Mike, I was talking in another thread in Menu Disks about my box of old ST disks still at my Fathers house. How would you like to retrieve them and see if there's any disks in there that people are looking for. I would imagine there's a good chance of finding some early Automation menus and may...

Attempt one didnt remove a check but its easy to spot, I think after level 6 or thereabouts the controls start acting weird.

He may have also changed the intro text to reflect this?

Ok .. this was '92 right? . Getting EGB to look at my corrupted copy of Automation Packer .. (not on the video) Funnily enough Gordon seems to be missing from all of the video.. I also remember the scouser with black mullet's name now. Neil, I think he masqueraded as some sort of "Scene" person.
