Title Super Start v2.00
Description Super Start launches PPG compressed and normal (ASM and BASIC) programs, but with a twist - it does the typing for you. After selecting a program in the VAR-LINK and pasting it to the Home Screen, you need press ENTER once. Super Start will finish typing parenthesis, decompress if necessary and launch the program. With Super Start installed, you can delete all of your ASM launcher programs which decompress PPG programs/games.

If you use more than one or two PPG-compressed ASM programs on your calculator, you really should have Super Start installed. As the description states, you can throw away all those PPG launchers and directly run the PPG files quickly and easily from the Home Screen. Super Start has proven very reliable in my personal experience and is very convenient. The leak watch feature that works with Command Post Plus! is also helpful, even if you're not quite a developer—if you find that your free RAM is inexplicably shrinking even accounting for all the things you have in RAM, and it only gets recovered when you do a [2nd]+[Left]+[Right]+[ON] reset, this can help you find which program's the culprit. It works for all ASM programs that you launch with it, not just PPG ones.

I highly recommend using Super Start to start any PPG programs rather than messing with their original launchers. Sometimes those launchers are old and can either give error messages or even crash your calculator. I've been able to start programs that come with buggy launchers by using Super Start to start them. Especially given Super Start's size (which seems very small for a Flash App), I'd say there really isn't any reason not to use it.

I fully recommend Super Start. I'm hard pressed to find anything wrong with it at the present!
