I also remade some other games without the original code and it's very difficult to match the gameplay just by looking at how the game behaves. It's your project!

I have recoded a Z80 arcade game in C++. The Z80 code helped me a lot for enemy A.I. and speeds and such. I don't see how it would be different for a 68k version.

Nice to see that I/O operation is working fine for that game (but not on Universe, okay)

Aaaah, normal on 1.3 because reading env. variables only works in 2.0. I'll add that to the bugs list.
