Thank you so greatly for your reply and for your walk-through! After configuring the extra memory it worked great! I knew it was a mem issue of some sort but couldn't figure out where in the context menus / VICE documentation how I could "upgrade" it. Thank you for taking the time to explain, along with sharing the proper syntax to launch the game from disk image. I just got it working now and I'm excited to play the game. It looks very creative and clever and I thought it was cool when I first saw it not simply because of its vintage nature but it just looks like a very cool and interesting game. I was born right at the end of the 8-bit era but we didn't get our first computer until win95/32-bit era--have recently become fascinated by the 8-bit machines and the history of computing. Thank you for all of your hard work and really looking forwards to playing your creation. Wishing you the best and thank you again!
