- GamePorts parallel port joystick configuration crash fix.
- Random RTG colour errors when switching to/from fullscreen 8-bit RTG modes.
- Archive mounting crashed if something prevented complete unpack (for example non-dos dms image file)
- Harddrive state files didn't save correctly if more than one harddrive was configured.
