Future of the updates

You probably know I decided to postpone translations of the game to other languages.. Well I have bad news if you were waiting for translations.
I decided to cancel all of those despite having the strings translated due to the fact I would have to redraw some sprites and stuff.

What is coming however, is a racing simulator within Starting the Game, with reference to an old popular video (Sammy, you are breaking the car) and more.

For now though, I dont think I will be able to do much more than bugfixes within the next two months. I will have a lot of time in december, though.

Thanks for being here

I also wanted to quickly remind you that the more reviews we get the bigger the chance we will get trading cards is.

Thanks for any reviews - they dont need to be positive, just tell me what you really think. What do you dislike?

Now when you go and click the -100% button, you will no longer need to click the grey button to get the error. (Makes more sense, as you already know you are supposed to click the grey one anyway)

I am also working on a Windoose Vista parody in the game.
Its almost ready.

I also fixed a few known sound bugs
