The X index register is now incremented by one and the code Branches back to the instruction that loads the next character from the string. Once the subroutine has finished it returns to the instruction after the one that called it. The Super Expander had no capability to put a bitmap to the display. The Vic however, it was the first computer that was mine all mine. Each of the VIC's four voice channels could play their own scores simultaneously, giving harmonious effects which could be striking by the standards of the time.
