Your comment seems to tell me this was not a very common cartridge, so it may never have been released? I was hoping someone might know something about the history and origin of these versions.
I've tried these with both VCC and MESS. With MESS, #2 & #3 run with Coco3
emulation and have different PMODE3 colors. #1 with MESS will run with Coco2(b)
emulation but not Coco3 and the colors are artifact PMODE4.
VCC will run all three of the ROMS. The #1 requires setting VCC to Composite
Display to get colors.
When I did a byte for byte comparison of the #2 & #3 ROMs, only one byte was
different. That ought to be the byte that selects the PMODE3 color mode.
