was an error on my part. I always double-clicked on the small boot .PRG from the auto folder which it seemed the
game didn't like and wouldn't boot the game any further. Copying the boot .PRG to the same directory as all the other
files and double-clicking on it works!!! (To me double clicking on a .PRG from the AUTO folder shouldn't make any
difference when all other files are in the root directory).

OK, After several hours (mostly swearing at my ST) I have now succeeded in getting the
game to boot from and return back to GEM perfectly so it should now be fully hard drive
This should please quite a few people.

When you run a program from Desktop, current directory is the directory from which you run the program. You should add path (as in "\FILENAME.EXT") to filenames you access from your program if you want to read them from the different directory than where you start the program.
Higher level OS calls like AES call to load RSC files, look into several directories.
