HISTORY

 Version 2.2 (26.06.2022) done by JOTD:
 - "main" program needed unpacking, else wrong version was displayed
 - faster startup (only unpacks once in most versions at startup)
 
 Version 2.1 (2022) done by JOTD:
 - fixed music
 - re-did keyboard routine (Girv tried to fix it but it was unfixable...)
