Summary0004082: Possible to reduce chip RAM requirement for Cannon Fodder?
DescriptionInstalled Cannon Fodder requires 1MB or more chip RAM. That's probably because the main code file (FODDERC) is assembled to address $80000.

On the floppy disks there are two other versions of the main code: FODDERS assembled to $C00000, and FODDERF assembled to $200000.

Would it be feasible to update the installer to work with those alternative files? Then machines with 512KB chip RAM could (hopefully) play the game.

I'm sure it can be done, by diffing the binaries and extracting relocation info.
