Alien World isn't a protection problem, it's a timing issue when reading from the serial port. In Vice go to the "C64 Model Settings" window, change the C64 model to PAL, and change the CIA 1 model to "6526A (new)". The game will load then.

Of course with a real machine, you're out of luck unless you have that version of the CIA chip.

Actually, it is a bug in VICE 2.3. I have several titles that worked just fine on the real hardware and on VICE 2.2 that won't work on 2.3 unless the new CIA chip is selected.

Well it appears I'm one of the unlucky ones my c64 hardware does not have one of these newer CIA chips installed, the game won't load.
