As Anna stated, Crazy Painter runs with cocoe emulation. It does not with coco emulation messui .135b.
I don't have an owner's manual for this game but expect that it makes use of the Extended Basic ROM for some video routines.

In any case, you should not be getting I/O errors unless you have a bad tape copy. Indicate where you obtained your copy of Crazy Painter.

There are several versions of this game available. One is for the Model I or III and one or two for the Coco.
Apparently one Coco version is auto starting (with a CLOADM) while the one I have is not and requires a CLOADM:EXEC. I have been able to get a good initial screen with coco emulation by reducing memory to 16k, however the game will not play.
