I do not know if this is the same thing as typing DOS, but, when running PitstopII, you have to type RUN"*" to execute the program... Just tested the dsk file I sent Steve a few weeks back and it runs fine in MESS.

It sounds like when you try to run pitstop ll by running "dos" you overwrite
the drivewire version of hdb-dos. Is there a way to run it without typing "dos"?

I have played donkey kong over drivewire and it works fine.
