I tried Automation and Superior cracks. First one seems not complete - crashed at some point. Superior seems OK.
Tried with TOS 1.02, 1.04, 2.06 . Worked on all of them. Only thing to care is to not move mouse or type something while intro loads - then will not respond on kb. anymore - it is common problem by many SW (IKBD overflow while CPU is busy).
Actually, it is not rare case that original crashes on real machine. And in many (perhaps most) cases the reason is copy protection. For instance copylock will fail on TOS 2.05/6 if it is regular floppy with files (CRC error in second FAT).
Don't know some concrete case which fails on TOS 1.02, but it is possible. Could say more, if you can make STX image of this game, and post to Atarimania (or PM here)
P.S. : Maybe the reason is simple: floppy drive in machine did not read everything well (most likely copy protection).
Little cleaning maybe
Negative feedback has usually positive effect.
