The loader bundles a number of binary files in with the loader code, and moves them to their correct memory locations in part 1 above. This part includes three files containing images, which are all moved into screen memory by the loader: * P.A-SOFT.bin contains the "ACORNSOFT" title across the top of the loading screen, which gets moved to screen address &6100, on the second character row of the monochrome mode 4 screen * P.ELITE.bin contains the "ELITE" title across the top of the loading screen, which gets moved to screen address &6300, on the fourth character row of the monochrome mode 4 screen * P.(C)ASFT.bin contains the "(C) Acornsoft 1984" title across the bottom of the loading screen, which gets moved to screen address &7600, the penultimate character row of the monochrome mode 4 screen, just above the dashboard There are three other binaries bundled into the loader, which are described in part 2 above.
