Hi Thomas!

>Bug 1: The scenario is increasing after wining a game.

Actually that was meant to be a feature </billgatesmode>


No really. I thought it'd be nice to get automatically 
carried from one scenario to the next, right after Game 

No good idea?

>Bug 2: That turns of the bullets (and you can fire 


There's something strange going on with 
copy'n'paste'n'undo in Ultraedit. More than once I got 
the impression that it eats code...
I think I'm going back to Textpad by the end of my 14 
days evaluating UE...

In theory: yes. But it'd force me into some severe 
changes of the current routines, since I'd have to 
handle two different sets of 'borders' then. It could 
introduce other troubles/necessary rewrites as well, be 
it the AI, random positionings, the death scenes or 
I don't even know what'd happen if a cowboy gets hit by 
his own bullet for example :-)

Done too ;-)

Attached is the latest binary...
