There's a thread in Lemon about it.

Gyrospeed is fast, small, reliable, and "no-frills", beating out similar tape fast loaders for pure speed while supporting files up to 202 block (which honestly, no single file game exists which is larger, especially after compression)

It's been used along with TAP Master (see the "News" tab of http://www.manosoft.it) to join together TAPs, measure the resultant TAP for length, and create huge mixtapes that can be mastered in a single pass.

The fact that this tool exists means that the process can be sped up significantly :)

Nice tape loader. I am sure I will find some good use with this.

I think an additional option to display a black screen, with a border around it while loading would be nice. Or even let it draw on screen fast like the Rack It loader did. One of the colour schemes you included reminds me of this ;)

You might need to fix the download link from csdb, it is corrupt.

Also the clear/white FOUND effect should be an extra option (not in the original Gyrospeed), and not the mandatory default.

Never heard about GyroSpeed before at all, and I just say WOW how fast it is !

192 blocks at just 40 on the tape counter amazeing!

Compared to other tapeloader I tested with Martin Piper / Richard Bayliss that one are about 81 on the tape counter.

One disadvantage for GyroSpeed it is ofcourse it dosen't support loading pic, music or scroller but you can't get everything :)

Btw the program works great under Linux with Mono
