I was also able to get Paladin's Legacy running in VCC just as you and Joel
Ewy directed by using the coco_archive.iso. I burned the iso image to CD,
pulled off 145AG_02.dsk and accessed the disk from VCC. That's pretty cool.
Unfortunately, the colors are really out of wack. If you choose N on the
"Do you have a color monitor?" question it only shows up in Black and White.
If you choose Y then the colors are messed up especially while looking at
Is that a VCC limitation?
It's really too bad Side 2 of the disk was not imaged as well. That would
have saved me a lot of trouble.
I also found the manual on the iso image at scans/manuals/pdf/paladin's
They did a nice job of scanning the manual in scrollable book format.

Okay, I tried the Paladin disk image in that collection on VCC.
Seems to run okay. I don't have instructions on how to play the
game. Randomly running around and hitting keys, it did ask for a
"city disk" at one point. Since there don't appear to be any
additional disks available in this collection, my attempt to enter the
