BASIC -> some 86 games will work on an 85, but not every one. there are a few 86 only commands there. It's also a real pain to get them on the calc since you can't directly send 86 basic to an 85. You had to use the old ti-graphlink software to convert it from the 86 to the 85. The old software used to have a program editor and basicially you had to copy/paste the 86 code from the ti-86 graphlink software into an 85 file in the ti-85 graphlink software and then send it. (by using ti-connect) Also the old software doesn't support USB cables and has a tendancy to bluescreen XP if you don't uninstall the Ti-black link from add/remove programs.

ASM -> 85 ASM was hacked into the 85 unlike the 86, which had Ti Supported ASM, so ASM for the 86 will not work on an 85.

That being said, the 85 still has a ton of programs for it, and many of the 86 programs are ports of 85 games. ticalc.org got a ton of them. Also the 85 tends to be faster than the 86. especially with Basic games.
