btw, I'm surprised that no reviewer seems to have distinguished original vs commercial-ripped gfx & sfx ... But that may just be because I'm unused to the rules of homebrew compos.

It WAS a factor in my review, even if nearly unstated. The only program I mentioned it specifically for was probably Cristal Vista, being as all the graphics are merely Vista elements. As I stated in my review, he did a good job on making it all work properly, but they weren't his graphics. When that's the only thing that distinguishes your app, you're in some trouble.  ^-^

Yeah, I didn't think we had to point out that the Mario games (for example) weren't using original graphics.  ~sm-82.gif~.gif

I see. It gets part of the overal evaluation even though you don't advertise it with "original art bonus" the same way some go with an "open-source bonus".

The reviewer sets the rules, anyway. And again, thanks for testing and reviewing: you all gave me enough things to think about and improve  to keep me busy for weeks, and that's what matters the most.

Cheers.
