I'm not sure if I'm ever going to use this tool but you rock and that's why I want to support you.

Well, maybe the Plus/4 *IS* worth a look ;)


Aww thanks mate that's super nice of you to say so :)

+Thank you so much for your support, respect!

Yeah the C16 & Plus/4 may lack sprites and the SID but they're still nice systems in several other ways.
