When I open a tape file (TAP/TZX), the program does not load automatically

This normally means the ‘auto load’ and/or ‘auto play/stop’ features on the cassette recorder are disabled.

To re-enable them:

  • On the View menu, click Cassette Recorder (if the cassette recorder window is not visible).
  • Ensure both the ‘auto load’ and ‘auto play/stop’ buttons are both selected (click them if not).
  • Re-open the tape file and the program should load automatically.

For further information on the ‘auto load’ and ‘auto play/stop’ options, consult Spectaculator’s built-in help.
