Help: Watford Solderless SWR
Text: Having problems with the Yorkshire boys Mixmania Discs.
I have a Watford Electronics Solderless SWR board with two 32k
CMOS RAM chips in 14H and 14L. I can load ROM images eg.
Notepad and INFORMANT ROM which work ok, but with the YB
samples, I get a bit of the sample, then the speakee just goes
BEEEEEEEEEP for ages. Also the SWR Manager ROM does not
recognise my free SWR but it is there to load in SWR images - I
type *LOAD <file> 8000. The Star Wars animations also work ok -
so what is going wrong with the Yorkshire Boys discs?

I think there is a bug in Liverpool Manager ... If you change a player
in your team with number 13, his energy and skill become 10 each.
However this is slightly random. I also occasionally get the bug
"channell at line ..." - Help?!
