  • There's a second "Room of Misery" misplaced in the middle of Trollywnd. Fixed using POKE 29553,130.
  • Your experience raises whenever you enter a new special room, except for room "word is no word" where experience is raised outside. Fixed using POKE 44978,88.
  • If you type "APEX,TA" then Apex will reply "GLAD TO HELP" but he won't go away. Fixed using the following patch:#
            org $917d^        call $f820^^        org $bec2^        db $80^^        org $f820^        ld a,($af57)    ; IF PEEK ($af56)<>2 OR PEEK($af57)<>17 THEN RETURN^        cp $11^        ld a,($af56)^        ret nz^        cp $02^        ret nz^        pop af          ; (remove return address from stack)^        jp $918b        ; ELSE GOTO $918b
  • Graphics for cyclops arm are corrupted.
  • It's possible to CALL objects, however they cannot be taken or examined, and they will float in the air.
  • Writing very long sentences will corrupt memory since there's no check for text input length.
