I never used any of those programmes, but I somehow remember RUN VT!, AA must of reviewed it at some stage as part of the Public Domain Reviews they did, but I'm not sure when.

I remember Michael Beckett more for his Toolkit v1.0 that AA gave away on the 3rd Covertape along with Spindizzy & Wizards Lair and used it quite a bit all for the wrong reasons, but it had a great Memory Editor, though was a great tool for someone looking to get into Assembly. Funny to see that CPC-RULEZ haven't documented that programme of his, though CPC-POWER has:
