Summary MESS-specific 05753: pentagon: The demo "recycler by thesuper" does not boot.
Description The demo "recycler by thesuper" does not boot after entering command - see on attached picture.

Note: The driver has status working.
Steps To Reproduce mess pentagon -flop1 RECYCLER.trd


press key "K" for LIST and type: (Note: the key "R" for RUN and key "F4" for ")

RUN "RECYCLER" (enter)
Additional Information It boots / works fine in an other emu like f.ex. "SpecEmu-3.1.b200414" if model is Pentagon 128.


Except TR-DOS disk format ".trd", on pouet there are also a lot of demos in an other disk format ".scl" ... unfortunately this format is not recognized / supported in MESS emu.

An example of TR-DOS demo with ".scl" format:

Some of modern emus like "SpecEmu-3.1.b200414" or "ZXMAK2761-TEST" already recognize the ".scl" disk format.
