With deep regret, I must inform all the fans of Fahrfall that late testing has revealed a problem that causes an undesirable amount of audible noise when using the latest version of the software on a variety of common Tandy Color Computer system configurations. Given this discovery, I will _not_ be making Fahrfall: Master Edition available at the 27th annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST! in Lombard, IL next weekend (April 21-22, 2018).

Please note that this is a software problem, and not an issue with the Game Master Cartridge hardware. I have other software that makes beautiful use of the same hardware. Nevertheless, this issue has been found too late to make the necessary corrections to the already built cartridges in time for CoCoFEST! I have fixes ready to test today, but I will not make another release attempt until I am satisfied that the noise problem has been properly addressed. Fahrfall has long been a labor of love for me, and I want you to love it too.

I appreciate your patience and support in this matter. I intend to have Fahrfall: Master Edition cartridges available for Tandy Assembly in November, and possibly for mail order this summer -- stay tuned!
