Will it be able to access the spell checker on the other side of the disk? If It can't do that, then Tasword 128 is fine. The spell checker was the only difference.
The disk images I have just have another copy of the program on side B.
The program requests the Tas-Spell disk to be inserted in drive A.

I downloaded Tas-Spell and tried to trick it by putting Tasword+3 in drive B and Tas-Spell in drive A, but it then asked for the dictionary disk - which seems to be side B of Tas-Spell - to be put in the same drive.

At the moment there is no way of swapping disks from the NMI menu, which is something I hope will be added, so it isn't possible to mount 2 disks into the same drive whilst the program is running.

What you could try is creating a .P3D drive image using the .MKDATA dot command, and then copy all the files from both sides into that with the COPY command (you could also potentially copy Tasword on there so everything is in the same image). Should work if it's just detecting whether the dictionary is present on the disk or not.
