Disk-ready tape: Magicland Dizzy

This morning I was testing the last build of TCFE and I noticed something I have surely seen a zillion times with this tape. I thought to report it here and share the amusement.

Magicland Dizzy tape (which uses Visiload) contains a small BASIC boot for disk files, meaning that if we extract the files from tape and save them to disk with the right name, we can then use the provided BASIC boot to load the files and execute the code required to start the game.

If the BASIC boot works as I think it does, then this is a case of game on tape that gives crackers a hint on how to run the game from disk after transferring its files onto it.
