Clamshell Release Facts
Fire Ant that came in the clamshell case was never saved with Novaload and was originally a long loader. The program was also saved without a file name. One other thing that is different with this long loader release is that the KEYBOARD or JOYSTICK screen is white with black text unlike the later release using Novaload which saw a grey screen with black text.
