List of games crashing with 4 MB RAM

There is plenty of them.
At moment can list only 3:
Stormbringer
Player Manager (ANCO)
221B Baker Street


Please add here titles which crashed for you with 4 MB RAM - and you are sure that it's the real reason, and not TOS v. for instance.

As I see, it is mostly screen draw error - overshot in code, so try to write in loc over 4MB - what triggers bus error.
There is already solution against - SW what sets machine to act as 1MB or 512KB one. But I just got idea for other solution - after exxos post about STOS crash with 4 MB RAM - and it is really simple. Tried with 2 of listed games and they worked with 4 MB fine. Will post it here after little more tests.
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.
