I've just been able to try your softVCS player and analyzer, and definitely
appreciated the moves being done torwards a debugging tool!

Now I know that it's and Alpha release, but since you made it public, I
believe you're expecting some comments so here we go!
First of all, just for information, the emulator itself is not running full
speed on my system (a 1.4ghz AMD), but I guess I've been warned :)
Anyway, I was surprised that the "player" came without a "load rom" option,
but instead could only play a set number of roms (supplied with the exe!).
Has it been done because of compatibility (the roms supplied are the ones
that work best), or maybe you would like to create a menu with screenshots
for all the known VCS games?

Now, obviously the Analyzer is the tool that got most of my attention. Are
you planning on further improving its debugging capabilities?
