That's ok. the program works with OP2 behind the scenes to make it do what has to be done.


NOTE ON SOME ERRORS:

Please, if you get any "Runtime Error", tell us where it happened, what the number and description were, and any other information you may have.

one error we are looking to fix: "Index out of bounds"

If you get that error, PLEASE TELL either I or Martyn.

We will continue to work on the system, if any major bug fixes come out, you will be able to download them (Martyn may have also decided to add auto update code, so it will automatically check for new updates for you.)

If you have any suggestions for the next version, tell us!

Anyway, back onto topic. (if you want to talk about the alternate universes, make a new thread in the offtopic, ok?)

Oh yeah, martyn is right. The multiplayer code (which was not released) is very buggy for now.....

On behalf of the community, here is my request. Please, please get that multiplayer server done the best you can as soon as possible. I'll split topic for the off-topic.
