When Bob's site was still up, I downloaded the source files for the 
games I was interested in. I wrote additional source code to use the 
disk system for game saves and a routine to use a special Coco3 mode for 
RGB systems to replace the PMODE4 artifact mode with a "PMODE3" equivalent.

So it is not a patch you can paste into one of these programs. You 
either need to assemble the programs yourself or get a revised game from me.

The new source code had been posted on Bob's site. It looks like the 
archive copy no longer has source code so compiling updated versions for 
all games may no longer be possible. I have source code for the 
following MarkData games: Calixto, Sanctum, Seasearch, Trekboer, and Vortex.
