Hmm, I'm  not at home, so I cannot prove my view on real hardware with 
an AtariMax Flashcart. I had the same problem with my Forth System when 
I stored the Forth on the AtariMax. The Forth Systm also expects 
channel (IOCB) 0 to be open for screen output. All I needed to do was 
to restore the original Displaylist, and everything worked fine.

Yes, this might be the case, that the displaylist and the screen memory 
are still on $9c00. I need to check that once I'm back home. Also, this 
should be fixed (or implemented as an option) in the AtariMax software.

If Shawn is working with a new AtariMax Prototype, we might see a new 
AtariMax Software release anyway :) (I'm really curious)

Best regards
