atari 800 version xex is broken, try changing "ff bf" to "8e 87" at offset 4

I tried doing this, but I assumed this was on the first line of the file. When I changed it to 8e 87, I just received a bunch of garbage errors when attempting to run the XEX in an emulator. Since the XEX loads on my Fujinet but not on my Ultimate Cart, I thought it would be worth a try to see if this change could make the game work on my Ultimate Cart.


I can leave a comment on the itch.io page, but I am assuming that I am not doing the hex edit correctly.

if you're testing it in altirra, disable memory randomization if you have that on in debug options

Didn't have that selected, but got it going by booting SDX3.2 from a floppy and running that way

Doesn't seem to like SDX/U1M and I did try running with the 'X' command too.

Now the author has Vexed V1.14 on his webpage with a note: "fixed A800 version".

Is this the same version as the fixed one above (by tmp) or is it a different/newer version ?


(Alas, no version number on the Vexed titlescreen.)


EDIT: Looking at the data segments, there is a difference of a few bytes:

Vexed-fix: $4000-878E

Vexed 1.14: $4000-8731

both are missing the run adress (most likely $4000). So the question remains, is Vexed 1.14 newer than the Vexed-fix above and what are the (only a few bytes) differences ?
