I always wanted to ask: why were there such great games (original and ports) for Commodore 64 that never made it to Atari XL/XE series? Was the reason only hardware issues? What are the key factors that determined this situation? Forgive my ignorance, - Y -

Does anybody have an executable or disk version of 1983 Dig Dug (5200) that will run correctly on real XL/XE hardware using SIO2PC or SIDE I? I'm running a stock 800XL (have tried it on XE's too) and the only version I can find will either run with the sound/music being incorrect (one voice not playing) via SIO2PC, or with the graphics being incorrect (blue background at the top being black instead) via SIDE I. As far as I can tell there is only one XL/XE compatible version floating around out there on the major archives. With SIO2PC I've run it from MyPico DOS and the Homesoft disk, and then with the SIDE I've used the executable of course. The problem exhibits itself in Altirra too, at least with the disk version problem. I haven't tried emulating SIDE I to see if it shows up there too, but I'm assuming it will.
Attached are ATR Images of the SysGen and Utility disk for Corvus drives. These are modified to use PortA on joystick ports 1 and 2. Corvus_XL.zip Someone please try this on a real Corvus and XL. I did this with Altirra and it should work. I am not one of the lucky ones who own the actual hardware. Please report real hardware tests here! Backup your Corvus drive FIRST!!! Edit: If there is a problem on real hardware, it is because Altirra doesn't implement the Corvus firmware.
