Combo disks question

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I have a question about Atari 8-bit/Commodore (or similar) combo disks… is the program contained on these disks, as a general rule, the same as the program contained on non-combo disks?


The reason I’m asking is because I hope to get a floppy drive for my Atari soon and intend to collect some disks that interest me… and I know that someday in the future I’ll do the same with the C64, so I feel like in cases where this option is available it would be the best idea, but I don’t want to do this at the expense of getting a compromised version of a game… if that makes sense?


Is there anything else related to this that I ought to know?

Yes, very little code sharing bar data in some cases, just one game per side per system..No magic involved...


Totally same game on each different system ie nothing different for the combo disk..No way to boot either game on the other system..Just a cheap 2 for 1 deal...
