Github and release link redirect to a direct link ...

Its multi-platform or in C# ?

Edit: why 50% of dev. Code hacking tools in C# ... Do it on C++, java, python, ?JS? But not in single OS language ...

C# is not a single OS language. You can run C# programs under Windows, Windows mobile, Xbox One, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS etc.

Yeah and its possible to run exe on MacOs or code in Swift on Linux, but Who Do this ... Very more simple to code in C++ to support Win/Mac/Linux
