Moon Patrol (F)OKOK Issue resolved in 2.07.
Bonus: "Moon Patrol" the game normally produces correct sound on 400/800 computers, and on XL/XE it doesn't do it correctly. The cause is that it relies on the Pokey state as initialized by the 400/800 OS, while on XL/XE computers the initialization is different. Here is a version that should play sound correctly on either 400/800 and XL/XE.
Mózgprocesor (BD)NO- The program hangs under XL OS too, so this must be a CPU-related issue.

Digital Dream (F)OKOK
Ergo Bibamus (BD)OKNOHangs while attempting to load any part after the initial menu. This is not a question of serial routines, because the demo behaves exactly the same way when booted from hard drive. I have no clue why it doesn't work.

Sampler Demo (BD)OKOK
Self Control Demo (F)OKOK
The program starts, but the vector part does not work, and there are other problems as well.
The TOP 1 (F)OKNO According to the author, the program relies on officially undocumented ROM locations. In 65c816 ROM these locations are not directly accessible or don't exist at all, thus the problem is unfixable.

Program types:

  • BD = Bootable Disk with proprietary filesystem format; note that program distributed as such may be - and often is - actually standard-DOS based; all of these were loaded from US Doubler compatible floppy disk drive (TOMS 720);
  • C = Cartridge;
  • DOS = program usable and tested under arbitrary DOS; for me this is SpartaDOS X 4.20; all of these were loaded from hard disk;
  • F = File, loaded from demo/game bootstrap; all of these were loaded from hard disk; © KMK
