I'm writing to ask if anyone has played any version of this game where they could enter the eighth house without causing the game to crash. I have five versions of this game from a TOSEC collection, and I've tried all of them using Atari800Win Plus in both OS-B and XL/XE modes (always NTSC). Every single one of them crashes as I enter my eighth building (that is, not building 08, but the eighth building that I've been assigned to after completing the seventh building.) I even found the .ATX version of the file on Atarimania.com and used the hacked version of A8W+ with the VAPI dll to see if that would work and it did not.
Does anyone have a clue about this one? Was it actually possible to finish Electrician (despite the difficult that the game approaches by the sixth and seventh buildings. I had to use a lot of savestates to actually make it to the eighth building)? The Famicom Disk System version of the game has the briefest ending after completing the eighth building before sending you back to the beginning of the game.
Any light that anyone could shed on this would be much appreciated. Here is my save file. I'm tucked away on the ladder below the door that I need to enter. Just push up, and crash.
