sunce thanks for this great comp, but...the Part 1 link leads me to the same download file part 2 as the Part 2 link.

Flash Strap said...

both the links are fine, I'm fairly certain. The first link should lead to "Black Art 2", the second to "+Machinegun Funk2". Sorry for any confusion.


Solid selection, hard soil to toil. Thanks
