[4:45 AM] MegaChanges In MegaMineSweeper Update
by Staff

Carrot Software has released another update to MegaMinesweeper. This version, still in beta, includes many improvements. According to Carrot Software:

Carrot Software has released version 0.9.2b0 of the game Mega Minesweeper. It is available for download in English and Swedish.

Major Changes:

  • A new theme 'Hazwaste' by Jason Aller is included.
  • Floating window support on 8.5 machines (previously 8.6 was required)

Minor Changes:

  • Fixed activation bug. Now deactivates placard control in bottom on activate/deactivate events.
  • Fixed WaitNextEvent() bug with sleep time during uncovering / when background process
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the application to crash. If quitting with the main window closed, it would crash the application (although not the system)
  • Better cursor tracking. Tracks correctly over furled up windows
  • Game automatically scrolls when tracking mouse downs and mouse leaves the window.
  • Added support for floating windows on 8.5 and newer systems
  • Added Theme support for custom colors in the Navigation window
  • Minor optimizations to all offscreen drawing code.
  • Decent improvements to number drawing functions.

You can find more information and download links at the company's web site.
