PR8 V0.99 available to download from the Downloads page.
Plenty to read. Please, please have a look at the ‘readme.txt’ file.
I’ve added a ‘Quick Start’ section to the manual to help get you going.
There’s also a .sav file, ‘pr8_ex.sav’ which has some example Patterns and sounds. You can load this with PowerPak, most emulators will require you to rename it to match the ROM name (‘PR8.SAV’). Please remember that the only emulators that will run PR8 currently are Nestopia and the latest dev build of Nintendulator.
To browse the Patterns in the example .sav file, hold B and tap up to go to the Pattern number (PTN) and then hold A and tap RIGHT (or L/U/D) to change the Pattern (the new Pattern won’t play until you release A and the current Patten ends).
