Again, the video isn't true quality in this rendering but this shows 
me building and launching a ROM Pak.  I told my project to reference 
the VCC program and use my built ROM, and you see how smooth it 
happens.  Actually you can see me making a fix to the source code 
since the first attempt tried to launch the program as a LOADMable 
binary and it didn't launch right, which was something I was playing 
around with earlier today.  So I changed the object type to an 8k 
ROM, and bam.  In the popup emulation, VCC wasn't defined as an 
emulator, but a Builder, and it acts on the object file of my choice 
which I set to main.rom (produced by main.asm).  It's a rather simple 
project with quick WYSIWYG action showing that you can test your 
games and apps pretty quickly all from the IDE before exporting to a 
real CoCo.  It just doesn't get any better than this for CoCo development.


Any takers today?  The special deal won't last long.
