StDragonDemo

Whether it's Mire Mare or a BASIC tape you found in the attic, it needs to be preserved digitally. Post here and experts can help to do so.

StDragonDemo

Post by goodboy » Tue Jul 23, 2019 7:35 am

game has non-standard loader and the version in the CoverTape is digitized with mistakes

game cannot even be begun
I managed (having bought the cassette) to make (by means of friends) the correct dump

Hi @goodboy Just tested the version on the crash tape, and seems that I'm unable to play the demo, is that the error you mention?
Thanks!

But this is the version that was distributed back in the day, correct? Or is this something related to the preservation?

Thanks Goodboy!

I believe we could add it to the database. It already contains some game images labeled as BUGFIX with corrected bugs and bug decrcription,
I suppose it's the case here.

Yes thanks goodboy.

We'll need to decide exactly where to put it - inserted into the Crash demo as a bugfix of the compilation, or with StDragon. I'll have a chat with the guys and we'll find a home for it.

Why mark it as a bugfixed version if the bugs aren't in the original release?

Yeah, just update the Side B of the magazine’s TZX with this working version of Saint Dragon. No need to draw attention to it.
