I hadn't run into any ROMs that used undocumented opcodes. What ROMs used
LAX? As for the aliasing, I just went through the listing and changed them
manually. Since I had only been dealing with 2K and/or 4K ROMs it hadn't
been that big of a deal.

Thanks David. The only game I've seen that does this so far is Miner
2049'er. Does anyone know of any others?

Take care,
