I found X-Copy Maraude It Professional v1.2 (13/09/88 | 01/10/88) amongst my disks.

I decided to dump it considering it is not in TOSEC (also renamed it accordingly). I noticed no versions prior to version 2.x are in TOSEC or on the XCopy Shrine.

This 1.2 version appears to only work with Chip RAM & Fast RAM allocated (Slow RAM intermittently works?).

256/512k/1MB Chip RAM Allocated (Memory Map: 000000->0FFFFF) - XCopy appears to be in a monochrome appearance (Grayscale + 4 colours; Cyan, Green, Light Purple & Red) - Left Screenshot (Weird the date is different; 13/09/88)

2 MB Chip RAM Allocated (Memory Map: 1FFFFF) - XCopy appears in full colour - Right Screenshot (Weird the date is different; 01/10/88).

Note: Slow RAM must not be allocated otherwise it crashes (seems to be intermittent - when it does work it uses Grayscale+4 colours in 512k slow & full colour with 1MB slow)

This version possibly contains a memory check/map bug (weird since it is intermittent)?

The issues experienced could be emulation related. As I haven't tested this on real A500 hardware in years.

You can find the ADF image in the zone (ZIP Archived).
