I did a quick google that gives the history of the magazine in case anyone
runs across more like that article.
It does state that another game was reviewed the prior month.  It ran from
1/83 to a last issue of 5/84 (under a changed name)

A friend of mine forwarded this scanned magazine article about the never
released Super Game Module (or rather, the unreleased predecessor to the
ADAM computer). It has a number of shots of the packaging, and the wafer
tapes that would have comprised the system.

Anyone out there have any experience with PR Boot? I purchased it on disk
and have yet to get it to run right. In fact, it seemed to get progressively
worse each time I booted the disk and I suspect the disk and/or the program
was corrupted due to age. Eventually, each time I ran either the TRANSFER
program or PR Boot itself, it would do all kinds of weird things from
re-booting my computer to displaying garbage all over the screen.

I received another copy which I was told was part of a collection that was
purchased with an ADAM system, but experienced similar problems with the
program on that disk, as well. Only this time it looked as though someone
had copied the program back onto the disk from either a DDP or higher
capacity disk. All six programs you are supposed to be able to use with the
program were listed in the directory (an impossibility since they exceed the
size of a 160k disk), but only four of them actually booted off the disk.

I copied the "0" boot block onto a new disk and then copied the two programs
(TRANSFER and PRBOOT) onto a new disk. Both PRBOOT and TRANSFER would boot
off the disk (TRANSFER is actually BRUN'ned from BASIC), but again, any
attempts to transfer any of the six programs onto the new disk met in
failure.

And yes, I do have the instruction manual -- which is vague, at best, about
certain aspects of what you are supposed to do.

Anyone got any ideas or comments?

thanks

Joe Blenkle
