version 1.02 - now without crash! (hopefully)
A bit smaller on windows, a bit faster on mac.

not-quite-final version. lots of the design should still be improved and
a lot of the parts are empty, but we'd rather get it out now and be done
Do not believe we'll ever make a not-not-quite-final version.
- a fast machine (1ghz or so, more preferred), running windows, mac os x
(10.3 or newer) or linux.
- opengl acceleration with support for pbuffers (for decent
render-to-texture), multitexture and a few other minor things. most ati
or nvidia cards (think geforce256 or newer) will do just fine, but faster
cards = more framerate, of course. don't watch demos on crappy cards or
with crappy drivers, please.
- a sound card.
- if you're running linux, you'll need the the arial black truetype font
file in one of the following locations, or the intro will complain:
if you're running debian, install the package msttcorefonts from contrib
and you should be fine. other distributions probably have equivalent
packages, or you can get the files from corefonts.sf.net.
if you have a problem with the fact that we want the intro to look the
same on all platforms (and thus needs that file + freetype), look at it
as just a really small demo. we don't care; we're tired of hacking
binutils and tweaking code to get under 64kb in the first place. (also
remember to have 640x480 set up as a resolution in your xf86config.)
it should be quite obvious how to run the intro. remember to chmod +x the
appropriate binary on linux and mac os x, of course.
