As you may notice the graphics for some objects in the game is not finished yet.

If you have an artist skill and want to help me with the game, then you can draw sprites for Ram (destructible wall - chips), Hardware (non-destructible wall - chips), animation for Snik-Snak and Electron. Contact me by e-mail (look at connection page.)

It would be very cool if the new graphics can be drawn in the new style (like Base, Infotron, Zonk, Bug, Explosion, Ports, Disks).
The sprites in the game located in the Graphics\Objects in the .png image format. So, you can replace some sprites and run the game to view them in action.

  • - fixed: Fixed the game crush at some invalid levelsets.

  • - added: Now the game speed is tracked for each player. The demo playback speed is set to player base speed on every playback (for convenience).

Otherwise the BUG can charge at truely random time, even at the next frame after previous time. This is inconvenient. Now the bug cannot charge right after previous charge, it can do so after a small cooldown only. But, I fixed it in such way that old demos should playback correctly.
  • - added: Added an overwrite prompt in save demo dialog.
  • - added: Added a force redraw on each level cell at very high game speed. Without that it is possible to set a such speed, that game become non-interactive.

Some visitors reported about problems with game downloading (especialy with big archive), this is because the server don't support for resume downloading, (and what is even more worse, it close connection after about 5 minutes). So, all users which have slow internet connection have problems and so they should download splited archive (not a big one). For those ones, which have cable or dsl (>128 KBit/s) all should work fine. I've talked with server admin about that problem, and he will fix this problem in a few days. Also one more issue, by default a game have sounds on, and if someone haven't sound card in cumputer, than those users will have problem when running game. I allredy fixed this sound bug (make it optionaly), but new beta verion is still not yet available, because I still works on menu.

Also I added link to ClanLib library web site into links page, because this library realy rox and current game beta version is based on it :)
