I can't get Skate or Die to work on my IIgs. It tries to boot, but crashes to a screen with a bunch of "@" symbols and a flashing prompt. Its ram requirements are much smaller than my IIgs's amount of RAM. I downloaded it at "What is The Apple IIgs". Could this be one of the games that aren't ROM 3 friendly, or is their archive of the game goofed up?

It's not ROM 3 friendly. See:

It is available/playable on Virtual Apple (which emulates a ROM 1), though:

Ok thanks. Looks like the list of games isn't too bad, and I don't think of the 5 IIgs I've ever ran across a ROM1. I do like the extra RAM of the ROM3 since Apple IIgs parts are hard to come buy in PC dominated Georgia.
