Version 1.0.1 coming soon...

Ive been working on version 1.0.1 non stop since the release of version 1. Version 1.0.1 has more realism and even has "security levels" which you can change from low, medium to high. Low = no security Medium = some security High = Unhackable (hopefully)

I will release version 1.0.1 as soon as I can iron out a couple of bugs which have cropped up. I will try and figure out this svn thingy ma bob so I can get you people involved in the project.... read more
