Patchy Performance

Comment by Ampa
about Patchy Nov 2013

I really want to like Patchy - it looks as if it fills all my needs (free, open-source, small, portable, good feature set).

Sadly performance is very patchy!

Getting constant crashes in Win7 SP1 x64 with Patchy 1.2 (portable and installed) run as a user or admin.

Doesn't seem to have been much activity on the website for 9 months now - perhaps the project is dead already?

I hope not :(
