CSpect V1.16

Okay, so the last version was actually a debug version and so some folk had problems running it. This is a proper release build. There are a couple of additions...

CSpect changes
  • Fixed sprite transparency to use the index before the palette and colour conversion is done
  • -r on the command line will now allow CSpect to remember the window location, so if you move it somewhere, it'll start up there again next time. Just delete the cspect.dat file to reset.

    Z80 shifts...

    Being a 6502 boy, I have to continually hunt for the shift opcode that I need. So after doing this for about a year now, I thought I'd knock up a little diagram to make it easy. So on the off chance someone else is in the same situation - here it is.
