thank you a lot!

btw, I'll grab all related about Didaktik - software, tools, manuals. Maybe zxdb not related to all zx clones?
D80 version is available for programs/games which were distributed on diskettes only (e.g. DTP Machine Utility).

The most programs/games from Ultrasoft/Proxima were published on cassettes too. That's why we have their TAP/TZX versions.

So all TAP/TZXs are also releated about Didaktik of course.

I tried to guess that. The SNAPR routine is disassembled at these documents:
  • "Rutiny ROM D40" by George K.
  • "Komentovaný výps MDOSu" by KVAKSOFT

If a program was originally released both as tape and diskette, ideally we should have both in ZXDB. If someone can provide a mssing D80 file please go ahead!

nope(
I found at aminet d802tap.cpp, it helps to understand how FAT works. I made a simple tool for browse d80 and exttract files:
Image

About snapshot: filesize is 49280, 49280-49152(quick preview show screen data at 18384,so 49152 is memory size)=128.
128 ain't simple. I found mdos10 commented disassemble, SNAPR is reading routine.
So, I put breakpoint on $034d at Real spectrum debugger. +$0068 is registers data for pop ones, and +$007E is stack pointer, where are easy to find return address
