Here is the only other catalog I have it listed in.
It looks like we listed as just before #2 (classic adventure is gone) but it has no number. Almost like we made it #1 instead. <--- this is about volume3, issue 4
Here is the 1st catalog it was in. I don’t have issue 3 and in issue 4 it is listed the same way but includes apple. I will send that separately. Other than this I simply don’t remember and I can’t ask Jyym has he has already died. Sorry. <--- this is about volume3, issue 2
your collateral evidence has nailed the situation.
so there was no strict rule of numbering system for other venture series in the course of promotion.
it even HAD changed and overwritten existing/occupied slot for that reason.
so, even if TRS-80 having "Dogstar" in #5, it was just a case of the platform as i suspected.
a treat of different platforms' release was fluid and adaptive after all.
this was it. i think i could have gotten a vital answer to confirm all of mine, my senior friends', Garry's and TRS-80 users' opinions were right without conflict.
and as someone who is friend of Garry is already on hunt for further evidence of physical material (such like magazine article, ads, or any other type of listing), i think that will prove another state of the fact how "Saigon" having been taken in Other Venture series eventually.
even if no reference number printed on, it was a result of transient nature of list.
that's why there is even a case on net which Saigon is treated as #1 of other venture series.
as for second question about existence of Apple ][ version, i got no answer though.
