Amstrad CPC games are so easy to load with the tape car adaptator. In the other way, doing the same on C64 is pure crap.

Because you need to know this :

1) the c64 hangs right after loading the first block. This means pausing the tape WAV file playing, then once it restart, release pause and let it continue loading
2) you need a perfect WAV containing the game (not easy and not as convenient to get as on CPC, which holds more complex tape protection systems.
3) the game needs to be splitting which each parts to loads seperated. Much more convenient with a tape car adaptator.

PS : MP3 are not "good" for the CPC, never mind the c64.....
