Naaaah. Now it loads either via Boot Floppy or HDD install and !Run change and modification, but will randomly crash.

Tends to be either the loading between the intro ("War! Never been so much fun! War!......) and the graveyard which I know is the Disc 1 to 2 switch, or the loading of Mission 2 Phase 2.

What machine / OS build are you running on so I can try to reproduce the crash?

It details how to create a correctly formatted floppy in the manual on p11
The manual would appear to be a lie, there is no Format button as described :roll:

Perhaps this was copy and paste mistake from another version, maybe the Amiga version?
At a guess it's looking for a floppy with a "!Cannon.Games" folder on it.
It seems any formatted disk will do, presumably as long as it isn't one of the game disks.
