This is the most common binary representation on other calculators with binary functionality (apart from HP's RPL calculators, which require bespoke programs for 2's complement signed binary integer representation). It's great that you've extended upon what the 16C provides, but the defaults should be a facsimile of the 16C so things feel familiar for those with prior knowledge of the 16C.

Not sure I follow... the simulator has a default status is 32 bit word size and HEX mode, unsigned.
This is maintained (until changed) when you change the display BASE choice.

Are you saying that in the original HP-16C the complement mode CHANGES automatically to "2" when switching to Binary? That'd be weird...
