Bugfixes provided by g00db0y:

  • The game crashes when you shot down the Russian gunship at the end. This problem was caused by executing instruction LDIR (setting BC to zero), then instruction LDI twice (setting BC to $FFFE), then another instruction LDIR after setting only C register instead of BC, as follows:

    $A29C LDIR
    LD (IY+0),8
    POP HL
    LD E,LX
    LD D,HX
    LDI
    LDI
    INC HL
    INC DE
    INC HL
    INC DE
    LD C,6
    LDIR
    The following patch fixes the problem in the same number of bytes:

    $A29C LDIR
    LD (IY+0),8
    POP HL
    LD E,LX
    LD D,HX
    LD C,2 ; Fixed using POKE 41639,14: POKE 41640,2
    LDIR ; Fixed using POKE 41642,176
    INC HL
    INC DE
    INC HL
    INC DE
    LD C,6
    LDIR
  • The original release was incompatible with +2A/+3 (the Hit Squad re-release works fine).

    Fixed using POKE 26393,59
