Boisy, I have a Dragon and a lot of software for it. Much of the
software runs on both a Dragon and the Coco, but I'm guessing the
software author does some ROM testing and runs the software
accordingly. I do have some Dragon rompacks but I've never tried them
in my Coco. I understand that most of the ROM routines have different
starting addresses in the two machines. I've had many discussions about
conversion with an e-mail friend in GB, but nothing has been resolved yet.
