The LocoScript manual is an evergreen source of frustration for newcomers, which explains the legion of companies selling tutorial packages of varying types -books, audio tapes, and now from Minerva a disc.

LernLoco is a set of files on a disc, which you read while running LocoScript. This seems to be a natural way to learn the program, so that you can fiddle around and try out the keys as you read about them. The files form a progression of lessons, each one ending with an instruction on where to go next.

It's good on the actual editing features of LocoScript, but weaker on the other parts (eg. Disc Management, when the screen it is talking about isn't part of the text itself). There are some nice tips on how to get special effects on the screen and printer. However, you've got to understand the bare basics of editing to get the most from it. Best to ignore the early lessons, and treat it as an improvers course.

How you get on with LernLoco depends on whether you like the writing style. The lessons are personalised to "Jenny”, and the idea is that you change all the Jenny's in a file to your own name with the [EXCH] command. This personalisation is heavily overused, and ends up being excruciatingly painful. For a tutorial package, some of the writing and screen design is surprisingly inept too.

Overall, a good idea, but LernLoco needs some serious attention to the text to realise its potential. Still, at £16.95 it's fair value and has some useful tips for many people.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
