If I am not wrong, Adventure Creator was released on ROM only.
Perhaps cracked ATR/XEX versions don't work.
My sequence is a quick way to find that the program doesn't work.
I played with it a little. Yes, your sequence locks up. You can RESET out of it, then go back to CREATURE and it works properly. Hitting SPACEBAR is supposed to take you to the
opening menu, which it does after your RESET from the hang. It says 'Speak' when it hangs. You may need to give a password, a creature name and other things that I didn't get
far enough to see. What I'm saying is it may be usable to create your adventure, just have to RESET and go back to where you were. Without getting further into learning how
to make an adventure, I don't know why RESET won't work. Maybe RESET makes you lose all your work, but going to CREATURE and editing the creature and then you will
properly go back to the menu with a SPACEBAR, which is what is supposed to happen. I think a FIRE button also takes you back sometimes.
I briefly looked at the documentation on ATARIMANIA.COM, just enough to learn that SPACEBAR is supposed to take you back up the menu.
It may be a fatal fault, or it seems to me to be recoverable. I don't know which. The .EXE and the .ATR seems to work the same.
The SPACEBAR is detected with a VBI or DLI routine, I think.
