On another note, I've gotten a bug report that seems to be engine-related, and I'm wondering if any of you can shed some light on it. Here are some snippets from the e-mail exchange:
I've been trying to play your latest game but whenever I hit New Game it immediately crashes. I can get to the options menu but the game just won't start for me. I'm running windows xp if that matters.
I don't get an error message when it crashes, the whole program just suddenly closes and that's it.
There was no fatal.txt file in the Application Data folder for Life Flashes By.
I have a Gateway GT5056 with a dual-core 64-bit 2.0ghz processor, 1gig of ram, Radeon X1600 video card, and I'm running Windows XP SP3.
