I have been using CCS with the MSP430 value line for a few years.
In the past, I was limited to DIP (MSP430G2553)
I started making PCBs using a micro mill (Trace Isolation)
I am now planning to mill a surface mount 38 PIN TSSOP so I can use the MSP430G2955 .
This chip has 32K program memory. Since I am using floating point, I burn a lot of program space before I write a single line of code.
My free CCS is 16K limited. What are my affordable hobbyist options to program this G2955 to its capacity?
Here are your options:

unfortunately the code size limited version is all that is on offer aside from purchasing a license.
If you have not used a demo license, you will have 2 x 90 days access to full blown ccs.
Aside from that perhaps looking for sponsorship for your project.
All the best.

Ouch ! $500 for a node lock single user is way outside my hobby budget.
That hurts. As I mentionned, I am a hobbyist so I do this for fun.
I made a mistake in my previous comment. It is not floating point that consumes my program memory space, it is the use of printf. I use sprintf to format the output to my LCD displays.
That is too bad. I invested a few years on the value line with many nice projects under my belt. I will probably move to a different platform for a while. I will verify your website on a regular basis hoping that you will eventually relax this rule.
In reply to Bernard Brault:
Note that CCSv6 comes with MSP GCC support. If you use the GCC compiler there is no code size limitation and you don't need a full license. The 16K limit is just for the TI MSP430 compiler

Now this is interesting.
Does the debugger work the same?
