At least you waited until you had a game going before waffling!

I'm still experimenting with various code bits for in-game music and
SFX, along with multiple kernel issues.  So far, my game is only on
paper, and a rudimentary static layout.

But, that's part of the fun:  I've tinkered with the concept for this
game for several years (off and on).  Seeing the Toto prototype tells
me what I want is possible (with illegal op codes :) without wasting
lots of ROM.

Now, if I could only nail down some of the kernel options and color
phase lookup tables....
