Boulder Dash is very slow, because (there is not so much code on page2, but it seems at least one screen manipulation code is there) page 2 is also Video RAM, and there are delays set on BF port, after i moved the data from FE segment to F9 ,and changed BF port to 0ch, it ran with good speed.
you can try it also, if you enter the following commands in debugger window page2 top left window:
O 00B3  F9
t 8000 bfff c000
O 00B2  F9
O 00B3  FB
O 00BF  0C

This problem is present in all of them. More or less noticable.
I will add fix to my loader patcher.

Prodatron's stand. It seems that he is adding more sound cartridges to SymbOS, this time FM sound.

The computer at the right is an Amstrad PCW, and it still doesn't have a V9990 SymbOS version because I'm lazy with the adapter...

"Desing Engineer --- the applicant will have several years experience of digital design techniques"
Design Engineer at Intelligent Software salary of 20,000 GPB/Year  (1984)

According to a website, the inflation from 1984 until today (2023) is 296.38%.

That means salary 20000 GBP * (100%+296,38%) = 79279 GBP (in 2023)

Now the 1 GBP = 1,17 EUR

So the salary 79279 GBP * 1,17 = 92752 EUR.
The mothly salary is 7729 EUR (without thinking of Bonus). This is probably with TAXES. So probably the half is gone 3864 EUR netto salary in (2023).

 Probably the living costs that time were also not that cheap.

 I do not know, what exactly the job was, but seems to me, that they were looking for a Hardware Expert. Probably the salary is dependent of the experience.
 Maybe they were needed fresh "blood" in the team, or more people to accelerate the developement process.
I can imagine that time not all the people has the passion to make some new tech stuff, with overtime in the Job, with exeption how Bruce Tanner done his job on the software side. Some employee think, if it is 16:30 i go home to my family, even if the job not done.

 Only smaller startup teams doing job in that passionate way, where they practically living inside the company.
 The company of course welcome these types, but it is hard to find.
