I have tried to make what I think are interesting aliens etc but as the original game uses the normal letter set when converted these letters(now UDGs) will appear in the menu in UDG form and may spoil the effect for some users, for which I apologise.
If I had the skills to do it I would swap the letters for graphics Chrs but..
1) I don't have the skills.
2) This is not my creation to mess with in this manner.
So look past the deficiencies and hopefully have fun.
As with all my conversions...
All three files in the same folder.
Eighty One users use ZXpand mode with no hires and Chr$ 16 set, sound set for Zonx even though it's borked in this emulator.
SZ.81 users use the ZXpand version of this emulator with UDG set, no WRX, sound set for Zonx.
Real zeddy with UDG4ZXpand set to 128 mode and sound via onboard AY unit if ZXpand + or plug in AY board with classic ZXpand.
Just load "TBEAMREM.P" and it will do the rest.

Wouldn't it be better if the I register was normal for the title screen then switched to whatever the new value should be for the game? The score and bonus messages wouldn't work however.
Whenever referring to EightyOne Emulator, it would be much better to include the Version of EightyOne you have been using.
That makes it much easier to figure out wether the problem may be version/user related
As for where to use the I register?
I'm not the most technically minded here and don't frankly don't have the Latin to mess with other peoples code.
I can however use my own simple method for creating UDG's out of what ever is presented. Games that use the character set rather than letters make life simpler but I don't have the skill set to sort through code and do any kind of changing nor the right to alter someone else's creation in that manner especially one as fine as this.
UDG's with the authors kind permission(where traceable) is as far as I can go.
A case in point is a game created by Sir Morris called BIGG OIL. he made two versions of this, one in normal zeddy mode using letters for the game graphics and then a second version using part of the character set so I could UDG it without spoiling the menu/instructions etc.
