It looks to be exactly the same as in the VIC-20 I have (since a few days <g>) except that this one has the Swedish characters (both upper and lower case).

It has the hashes. I called it BASIC 2 since it looks to be the same as in the VIC-20 and C64. I might be wrong, but I thought the original BASIC could not do "GO TO 20" (i.e with spaces), whereas BASIC 2.0 could do that. That's why I concluded that it was BASIC 2.0 (it does not support DLOAD so it is not BASIC 4). There seems to be a utility ROM in the machine (and there's a note on the monitor saying that one would start it with SYS 11*4096, i.e $B000). I haven't tested it yet, I am currently dumping the ROM to tape (several copies, just in case the recorder is bad, haven't tested it before). I'll see if I can get the VIC-20 upstairs with it's Oceanic drive to read it and copy it over to a disk, which I can then copy over to a PC when I get back to Oslo... -- \\// peter - firstname.lastname@example.org I do not read or respond to mail with HTML attachments.
