    Hi all,

    Just to let you know I'm still working on this one from time to time:

    - I'll recompile the game with debugging symbols as soon as next Code::Blocks version is ready.

    - I have started to work on data/sfx/test.wav: the file is now 44 khz and volume is much higher (that tune is barely audible right now...)

    - I'll try to mute the F key, as it conflicts with notaz' improved SDL

    Regarding key mapping, do you like it as it is now, or would you prefer further customization of the controls ? E.g:

    D-pad: move
    (X): jump
    (B): fire
    (A): pause
    (Y): change key bindings at the main screen
    [START] : enter
    [SELECT] : quit

    Thanks for your input ;)

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    Hi all !
    No harm intended :)

    On a side note, I nearly beat my own hiscore this afternoon: I reached level 11 with 5 lives (!!!) and ~60k points. Then, I just played like an arse and lost all my lives on that very level... :D

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    Yeah, I thought I'd better give this a proper go. My previous score was basically just me testing that the game worked!

    Hah, issue 1! I only have a vague recollection of playing this, and these days my Pandora is still sadly out of action. But it's good to have the author on board now, even if only on github. Looking forward to getting back on this when my Pyra arrives!
