So, there is very little about the 128 version that is different from Color 64 itself beyond the compatibility modifications, no doubt extensive, created exclusively by Adam Fanello. You can even check out the Color 64 page itself for more information on this program, including some screen grabs.
The information below pertains to Color 64/v128 v7.37. I compiled the information based on documentation from the Color 64 and v128 home pages, and from what I recall of the systems I've seen. If any information here needs to be changed or updated, please let me know.
