My God, man! Do you never sleep? Changing the GENERATE file is doing the trick so far. Thanks for the help! The community on this forum is incredible!

The game has been working great in classic99 since Tursi's fix. I haven't gotten real far (no dungeons) after about 2 hours of game play, but it seems stable. Adam, do your comments mean I might still have trouble when I get to the dungeons?

So Classic99 by default uses the FIAD format for its files. FIAD stands for "Files in a Disk." That's basically a quick way of describing the filing system. On Classic99, your virtual disks exist as actual PC folders. When a folder is named DSK1, then the contents of that folder are literally the contents of the "disk" which is in DSK1 of your virtual PEB.
Typically when you play games (but not all the time) DSK1 is the loading drive. Most games which reference ancillary or support files are hard-coded to look for that stuff on the "disk" in DSK1... So is the case with the Legends games.
If you look in the Classic99 directory on your computer, you will see a set of DSK folders... In order to use your deisred DSK1 diskette (Old Dark Caves or whatever) then that folder must go into that Classic99 directory where the DSKs are. You'd probably want to name the existing DSK1 something else (so you can keep the contents... they will be useful). I usually name it something easy like "ORIGDSK1." That way I know that was the original disk1... If I ever need to use it, I can simply rename it DSK1 and Classic99 will recognize it as such.
Anyway... back to it. Find the DSK1. file in your downloaded zip for the desired game. (IIRC, I named them DSK1 in each of the folders, but I might be wrong). If the folder isn't titled DSK1, you can do that now and slide it into the Classic99 directory.
All 3 of these games are AUTO-LOAD games... meaning they will auto-load as soon as you turn the system on and select "Extended BASIC" from the menu. If you've done it correctly, it will auto-load and you'll be off to the races.
Let me know if this helped and if I can be of any more assistance.
BTW, the Classic99 manual included in the Classic99 download zip is quite excellent. Clear instructions and usage methods described in there. You'll learn everything you need to know about getting started with the emulator in no time-flat.
