Catch! for TRS-80 now available for download

The files for the TRS-80 game Catch! I wrote decades ago are now available here… 

For more info about it, read my blog post… Enjoy!

Update 19 Aug 2015: Some additional info:

I use FreHD, a device that lets an SD card be recognized and used a TRS-80 hard drive. It’s an amazing device. It, with the included software lets me save files using the SD card instead of disks, and I can import and export files so that I can move files between my Mac and the TRS-80. These are the steps I used to get the files from the TRS-80 to my Mac.

1. I saved it as a binary to drive 4 with SAVE “CATCH/BAS:4”
2. I saved it as an ASCII file with SAVE “CATCH/TXT:4”,A
3. Exited back to LDOS with CMD S
4. Exported the binary file with EXPORT2 CATCH/BAS CATCH.BAS
5. Exported the ASCII file with EXPORT2 CATCH/TXT CATCH.TXT
6. Turned the system off, mounted the SD card on my Mac, and on the drive are my two files: CATCH.BAS and CATCH.TXT.

If you’re using FreHD, you’ll need to do the reverse.

1. Copy the files from your Mac or PC to the SD card.
2. Import the files at the LDOS prompt: IMPORT2 CATCH.BAS CATCH/BAS:x and/or IMPORT2 CATCH.TXT CATCH/TXT:x where x is the drive number.
3. Start BASIC with the command BASIC
4. Load the binary with LOAD “CATCH/BAS:x” I don’t think you can load the ASCII version directly, however I think you can use MERGE to load into memory.
5. Sart the game by typing RUN
