You're welcome.

During gameplay, press ESC and then type "KEN HURLEY" for the secret message (but it ends the game).

You have to wait.

Otherwise the incoming folder would become a swap box for the world. ;-)

Whilst it might be fun (albeit dangerous) to have such a thing, Asimov's
incoming folder should not be it. :)

Zaxxon (48kb, non-Mockingboard version).
The Mockingboard and 128kb versions will require some creativity on my part.

It seems so. There's a 64kb Mockingboard version, so the 128kb version might be based on that, with the addition of the screen.

Yes, finally I have finished replacing all of my old 65C02 ports with 6502 versions.

Zaxxon dhgr was an official release and included in the hgr version.

When I cracked it in late '80s, it was a complete surprize to see the dhgr title screen. I don't remember the details but I think it was visible only on the //c or //e,

I should have figured. The dhr screen looks a little too nice to have been done by a punk teenager. :)
Also, the gameplay seems identical.

Does this include bug fixes from the older release? Same question for
BC's Quest for Tires and a couple of other ones as well.

Very much looking forward to the announcement on the frontend side of things!

I seem to be getting all sorts of screen glitches after initiating a
second game (it plays fine on my ROM3 IIGS throughout the first game,
but as soon as you get to the isometric playfield for a second game,
big screen glitches appear on the right hand side and the game slows to
a crawl.

I've new found respect for the Apple II version of Xevious! Although
the frame rate isn't near the arcade original, the full screen
scrolling and gameplay feels the same. It scratches my itch for playing
one of my very favourite top down scrolling arcade shooters, Terra
Cresta.

Bug reports to the ProDOS port bug report thread. :-)
However, I see what you mean. I'll fix it.
