In part two of the getting started guide, we’re trying to go quasi-modern with our commie right?  So let’s get a fast load cartridge. There’s also some commands to get you going.  I wish the guide had a little more to the series, but don’t fret you can always revert back to the original user’s guide or just pull up a command cheat sheet.  Either way you’ll be playing maniac mansion in no time and re-living those old memories I’m sure!
