Hi,

05 Oct 2008 (Release 44)
=========
*FIX. Starting location at the beginning of game now displays cyclic elements correctly in Player.

*NEW. "sfxon" and "sfxoff" actions to turn sound on/off during a game.

*FIX. A YES response to "Play again? on a "gameover" action now correctly performs a "restart" action instead of a "replay" action.

*FIX. "messX", "sysmessX" and "revmessX" actions now responding correctly in TAB Player. (sorry)

*FIX. Text finally displays correctly now in Player after a game "restart", "replay" and "gameover"

*NEW. "Prompt for Sounds" checkbox option in Game Settings Editor. If ticked a messagebox will ask Player at the start of the game whether sound (music and sfx) should be on or off.

*NEW. "Disable Menu" checkbox option in Game Settings Editor. If ticked the TAB Player MenuBar will not be attached to the Player Dialog Window. Players will need to manually type in 'save' and 'load' to store or restore saved game positions or 'quit' to exit a game.

*NEW. "menuon" and "menuoff" ACTIONS to show/hide TAB Player MenuBar.

*CHANGED. TAB Player Window Title now reads simply: "TAB Player"

Hi Tabbers,

10 Oct 2008 (Release 44.3)
=========
*FIX. The "again/g" command is cleared to empty when game restarted or new game loaded into Player.

*IMPROVED. "dialogmess" action. Text can now begin by optionally specifying a titlebar text caption. The caption text should be split from the box text using the "|" (bar or pipe symbol)
Format: #dialogmessI am the caption|I am the text in the dialog.#

*FIX. Error since last version: Opening a new game in Player now preserves current dialog window size instead of autoresizing to default start-up dimensions.

*FIX. Removed some obsolete code testing from Response entries in "character_demo.tab" that was affecting gameplay in this demo.

*IMPROVED. Vocabulary "Multiple Long Nouns" and "Long Verbs" now supported in word entries.

*CHANGED. "splash.bmp"

*FIX. If Character Editor "follow" checkbox ticked, TAB warns author if Character Start Room is not the same as Player's Start Room.

*NEW. "maximize" ACTION. Forces TAB Player window to maximize eg. Script 2 entry:
[start]flag10=0[acts]flag10=1#maximize[end]

*FIX. "cyclemessX" action was broken - now works OK.
