Great videos, mate! Looking forward to SQ6!

(hope you do the PQ and Larry games for folks too)

A lot of this is simple stuff for some of us, but for others its the difference between a fantastic and terrible game experience with this awesome classics! :)

I've posted a few questions on your videos, if you're still about and checking them, but one I'll ask here:

Any reason to use "machine=tandy" for AGI games that support 3-voice sound rather than using "tandy=on" and adding a "-t" to the command that starts the game? (that way you get Tandy sound but not Tandy graphics)?
thanks for the guides phil!
