If you have details, please add them to the ProDOS bug report thread, and then I'll check.

Aztec.
I have tried repeatedly over months to make a compressed version, but the game reads and writes to essentially random locations over the whole disk, so today I gave up and just wrapped the disk image.
ProRWTS is literally booting the disk and translating the DOS sectors to ProDOS blocks.
At least it works.

:-) It would take more code, and the environment is rather constrained.

I haven't tried installing a new region, though. That seems unlikely to work since there's no way to insert a disk.
I can make another version with another region installed, though, if anyone has one.

Thank you for this! The disk swapping in the original is insane.

Is the region thing like an expansion pack? Did they make any?

Wikipedia answered my question:

>> The game had support to add region and adventure modules, which were supposed to be released starting in 1990. However, no modules were released due to Todd Mitchell Porter leaving Origin and taking the rights to Knights of Legend with him.

FYI - it looks like this got misplaced in the san_inc_dos folder on Asimov.

I uploaded accidently without the "PRODOS" tag, which is how it ended up there. I've asked for it to be renamed. I'll ask for it to be moved, too.

Regarding Wasteland, I suggest that you backup the WASTELAND.1 file before playing, so that you have a pristine master whenever you want it.

I was wondering about that -- I vaguely recall the Wasteland manual advising that updates are written to the disk.

You may want to put a note to that effect on the disk image itself (readme.txt).

If you want to get carried away, distribute the disk with the file locked. If the launcher sees it locked, print a message encouraging the user to make a backup. If they want to continue (Y/N), unlock the file and execute as usual.
