Apple IIgs - SCSI setup

This week i've completed my IIgs SCSI setup. On the link below some high quality youtube videos.

The chain: IIgs Rom3, Apple SCSI card rev C. (slot 6), 80 Mb (32-32-15) external scsi drive, System 5.0.4 on the first partition.
Even if quite all applications seem to start (claris appleworks, beaglewrite, deluxepaint, dreamgrafix, shrink.it, statistic visualizer)
i've had problems with some games.

I didn't find any executable file on

- ZZcopy
- Sensei
- Hot cookies

while these

Taskforce
Hostage

seems not to start if i use their executives.
Which kind of launcher shall i use to start disk images from hd? Any idea?

Related SCSI ROM Question

Would you happen to know if you can swap/upgrade the ROM chip in an older version of this SCSI card so it could have the V3.x ROM?

You're not mixing your metaph

You're not mixing your metaphors, are you? You can't upgrade a ROM01 IIgs to a ROM03 IIgs; there were actual hardware changes that happened between these systems. Of note: there never was a ROM02 version released. ROM00 and ROM01 machines can be swapped freely; note ROM00 will not run GSOS.

The ROM on the SCSI card can be upgraded from A or B to C, though:

You were right, I was mixing metaphors without realizing it. I meant upgrading the SCSI card to Rev C. Thanks much for anticipating the question that I was asking and also for giving me the answer that I really needed.
