Quote from Steve:
On the first disk we went for using 'modern advances' and made use of samples to introduce the disk.
Jonathan 'Twilighte' Bristow was very enthusiastic about Rhetoric and wrote an excellent menu system to introduce the disk in style.
(Use cursor keys and space bar.) He incorporated the sample I selected, converting it to a 4-bit sample.
The sample was from a collection by Stephen Meachen taken from the film 'The Mask'.
The menu included a couple of programs/ pieces of coding which were used to insert the loading instructions.
These programs were not included on the finalised disk so that the menu would be exclusive to Rhetoric disks.
