March 8, 2023 – “New” TRS-80 Software

Scott Taylor is posting the programs he wrote for the TRS-80 on Github. He writes:

This is a catalog of programs that I created for my first computer, a Radio Shack Model 1. I still have it and it still runs, although the cassette player it used for storage seized up some time ago. I am still coding for a living today!

I recently found this excellent emulator: Thank you George Phillips for bringing back the joy of those early days.

I have a few printouts of the source code for the games I created between 1978 and 1981. I have never shared them with anyone except a few of my friends. I hope there are a few veterans out there that can appreciate what could be done 45 years ago with 16KB of RAM, a million times less than the computer I am typing this into!

You can find them at

By the way, if you download from github be aware that you MUST follow his instructions. It is an ASCII file despite him putting a .CAS extension and line 30000 is too long for you to load and save it. It must be run from the FILE — RUN menu of TRS80GP.

  1. Thanks for the feedback. I am very new to the TRS80GP emulator.
    I have changed the .CAS as .BAS and saved the program in both formats.
    I also split line 30000 into two lines, although I never had problems with it on the real Model 1.
    Let me know how it goes!
