Going to be doing some testing on it later today (want to make sure the same image will now work on both 6809 and 6309, and both Coco 1/2 and Coco 3), and if everything goes well, I will be uploading the patched version to both Facebook and the Color Computer archive. If we discover problems, I will let you know.
