The full change log for the v2.03 release follows:

  • Improved Windows System Detetion.
  • No longer always uses 100% of CPU, only what is require to get a minimum fps.
  • All static screens now close automatically after an appropriate time.
  • Fixed help screen not showing up in some cases.
  • Fixed problem with some serial #s not being recognized.
  • Microsoft removed ability to play non Microscoft video and/or audio file formats, which forced us to use Windows AVI files. We apologize for the larger download, but avi files are 2x as large at 1/2 the size at lesser quality.
  • Worked around problems with latest Windows updates that caused bogus "OpenGL Required" messages.
  • Worked around bugs in latest Windows udpates that caused spurious "Fatal Error" messages.
  • Add/Remove Programs control panel now shows program as available for removal.
  • Updated in-game help to reflect left handed additions and Q/Z jetpack usage.
  • Updated installer to be more user friendly
