V1.1, just as V1.0, doesn't finish the "to the mountain" loading sequence on a C-128, because
the 2Mhz-mode-bit at $d030 is set near the end of the loading process, what causes at least
one of the kernal's serial bus routines to not work properly anymore.
In fact almost all VIC-registers are overwritten with $ff, the offensive code resides
in memory at roundabout $15c0 onwards, if that helps.


Kommentar von Vernunftmensch:

Danke für Deine Bugmeldung. Mit V6.0 soeben das Tutorial auf Diskette ohne Ladeprobleme durchgespielt.

V1.0 never starts the actual game when using the original kernal because it keeps asking the user to "insert the correct disk". Strangely this seems to work under Jiffy-DOS.
(I have been told the bug has been fixed in V1.1 - let's see)

V1.0 has a "Credits" entry in the main menu. Here the input handling is broken again; it is almost impossible to read every page because any joystick action may be interpreted as two actions.
The list of names has all the same problems as the one in the scroller.

V1.0 shows a "DTV Burstmode" option on the "Options" page. Why? I wasn't playing on a DTV.

On V1.0's "Options" page, every other joystick action makes the screen flicker.

V1.0's "Options" page has a confusing user interface, because "Fire" acts as "Apply changes and leave page". A separate "Done/Exit/Return/whatever" entry would be better.

Entering V1.0's "Options" page does not always switch off the Music. Every once in a while a tone keeps playing until leaving the options page.

V1.0 has a "Cutscenes" entry in the main menu. This does nothing, so it should not be included at all.

V1.0 has a dodgy joystick handler function. If the joystick is moved very quickly, the program reacts once. If it is moved slower, the program reacts *twice* (once when moving the joystick, once when releasing it). That's bad enough, but "up" and "down" behave differently on my usual "joystick speed": When I move the joystick forward, the menu acts once; when I pull it back, the menu acts twice.

V1.0 asks for a four-digit "ID number", but does not supply a "rubout/backspace" field to cancel previous digits. It *does* ask "Are you sure? Yes/No" afterward, but that's not the same.
