I remember playing this game for hours on end in my youth, so I thought I might give it a go again.
I've got the steem emulator to work and have attached the disk image downloaded from this site but I can't select player manager from the cd331 menu page, does anybody know how to do this?

Thanks Rob

Hi rob and welcome to the forums. This is a problem that I managed to replicate thanks to another forums member. The solution is: Try another TOS image. Which TOS version are you using?

You may also need a blank *.ST image. In case you find it difficult to find/make one, PM me and I will email one to you...

Thanks for your help, but I still can't select Player Manager from the select screen, I've tried both versions of tos(1.02,2.06) and its still the same. Is there a sequence of keys you have to press to select a game from the menu?

Yeah defo. start with the right TOS Image. I always use 1.02 for all games as that's what I have in my REAL ST and I know all the games work with it. Also stick to 1Mb of RAM. Beyond that I'm not sure. PM defo. works with Steem Engine, although i've not tried it on the lasted version (3).

As I said this is a TOS related problem. The most secure TOS to use is the US 1.00. Another guy had exactly the same problem and I managed to replicate it. I switched to 1.00 and it worked fine. It has nothing to do with memory or other setup. All these, with Steem 2.61.
