Hi Keith,

Just thought I'd post this bug I found but never got
around to e-mailing you. :) If you run the game on a PC
with no sound card installed and thus no sound driver,
the game only stays up for a few seconds. Presumably,
once you do something to trigger a sound it tries to play
it and some kind of overflow occurs.

Anyway, it should probably be handled by the game
library you are using (I forget the name), but you might
want to have the option to turn off sound if a sound
device is not detected.

TTYL,
Sheldon

    Sheldon:

    Found out about that when I got off vacation! Thanks for the
    info anyway. The crash would've happened when you made a
    wrong move in the game. Forgot to add code to check to see
    if the audio was enabled for a wrong move sound. It should
    be fixed & can be redownloaded on my other web site.
