Alright! I got it working perfectly. There was 2 things that were
wrong with my bad attempts.
1, When trying to Daggopatch from my multipak, I was getting an IO
error in 130. I didnt realise I used a 1.2 disk in my PC to make the
daggopatch floppy for the coco. Line 130 was trying to LOADM
something and it was bad on the disk. Thus the error. SO I went back
to the PC and remade the disk with a 360K and all was good. That
happens sometimes when using 1.2 disks with dskini on the PC.
SOmetimes the image writes good, other times you get bad files.
2, I also didn't know you had to keep the tape on the rom pak when
it was in slot 1 of the multipak. I assumed the tape was only for
trying to do a tape save of the rom pak......opps.
Now I can play DoD with out hooking up the tape drive :-)
