Re: ROTABB

Exactly as many comments as you'd expect when comments take up valuable memory ;)

Re: Blockdown (2020)(Teipen Mwnci)

Ok, modified the upload in the initial post! I know what I did: I just included a copy of what I'd uploaded to colorcomputerarchive.com, which was just a coco image. Now hybrid, as intended, and should BOOT!

Thank you for spotting this :)

Star Trek III v4.00 (1981)(Adventure International)

L. Curtis Boyle converted the cassette tape original to CoCo disk, and I've (with his guidance) taken his work and adapted it for the Dragon. Two versions on the disk due to USR madness, but a front-end program (run by BOOT) should pick the right one for you. An interesting little project, as it emb...

This is of course fine if only USR0 is defined. (And possibly what you've seen working before)
Yeah that's probably what I was remembering. Ah well, multiple versions it is...

Cross-compatible USR calls?
