Hello all-


Here are the recent prototypes I was able to unearth.  Special thanks to Atari Age member Bryan for helping me to get Defender working.

One interesting note about Defender, it displays "BY MICHAEL COLBURN" when it sees keycode 206 which is SHIFT-CONTROL-MINUS. I can't seem to get that combo to work in an emulator, though.


It needed minor changes to fix some display problems and make it XL compatible.

You mean you had to modify the binary to make it run? Can you also post the unmodified one?

I see that both Jungle Hunt and Superman III have their problems regarding XL compatibility (tested on Atari800). Superman III doesn't run at all, and Jungle Hunt sometmes does, sometimes doesn't.
