Hehe, I was already wondering wether you unsubscribed [Stella], since you sounded so clueless in the AA thread ;-)

(BTW: Make sure you grab both ZIPs from the archive, the second one only updated the tool)

I'll post another update tonight. Planned features are PAL:NTSC selection, probabably odd TIA:SID resolutions #1, a selectable starting frame (so non-working stuff like the Sanxion intro can be skipped) and switches to select the BASS or the PITFALL wave. Maybe I'll get the instrument filters done as well.

BTW: I'm looking for someone to run a little homepage for the tool and maybe writing a little manual / user guide / workshop. Al already offered a host on Atari Age, so anyone interested in doing something here please drop me a line.


#1: Really not sure about this. Did anyone experimenting with the tool see a SID file that updated registers on odd frames (every 3rd, 5th)? Adding such a feature really only makes sense if such SIDs would exist...
