2. The hyphen character used in the credits font looks messy when used for underline. Can you use another character that has a continuous 8 pixel line nearer the top, or just change the hyphen if it's not used anywhere else? It'd look far more slick. (Like how NOMAD did in his AGA fixes).

3. Make the system-configuration file contain all black for the palette so you don't see the ugly Workbench screen in the background.

4. There's a few glitches here and there at the end of various parts where the screen flashes up whatever's left in memory.

1. Probably not going to happen, I did the intro as a big file and then packed to try and minimize disk loading, i'm pretty sure I did some calculations and with the HAM mode picture, it wouldn't fit in 512k so it was abandoned.

2). Good point, i'll check that out.

3). Final version with be sector loading so that won't be an issue.

4). Only happens once just before it brings up the box art screen, thats next on my to do list.

Keep the comments coming chaps
