Its whatever Graeme wants it to be, its not on him to guess what others would do with the disk, and he isn't obliged to worry about it either.

Nope.

If you so wanted to, you could write a bespoke hard drive installer for your game, hiding the AmigaDOS executable on the disk.

OK, can confirm that the original works fine, but the cracked version by HQC doesn't change character graphics at all, so this is a problem that requires fixing.
