Looking for a Fast Loader.

I found on one of my old floppies this Fast Loader program. It reads the directory, assigns to A-Z letters the filenames (so only 26 filenames are stored) then pressing the correspondent key start to turbo-load the program. I'm pretty sure I modified the title at the top and renamed the file when I was 16 (or maybe older) so I'd like to find it in its original state. Searching all Turbo Loaders here is impossible, there are tons of them. Some help anyone? Thank you in advance.

If you modified it, you were not very creative with the name. :-)
I'd say upload it, then it should be possible to find other versions by looking for code lines in the archive.

Search 'menu' in releases. It yields results like 'Menu Maker', 'Menu Creator' etc. They look similar to your screen.

Didn't the AR cart use to do this? I remember having a few menus like this on disks I got with my C64.

Thanks for your replies. I finally found it on a disk image of AR 3.0 utilities. Looks like I didn't only changed the title, but removed the F1/F7 keys, shortened the code by one disk block and made the drive led flashing during the load....

That's an interesting thing to collect. What's the reason? Are there any sub-categories? Minimum requirements to be added? Age restrictions? Sorting criteria? Speed/size/other metrics? :)
