KNOWN ERRORS & BUGS:
- For many players, transparent parts of the game screen have failed to render properly, with the screen turning completely black during the second stage, making gameplay impossible. Unfortunately, this is a problem with Game Maker itself, not the gamecode. According to xerus and AGuy, however, this problem can be fixed by either restarting the computer or (if the problem is with the nVidia driver) starting up Fraps, opening the game, and then closing Fraps (no need to record anything).
- There have been verified reports of memory leak within the game; every time the 'Q' key is pressed to restart, around 10 MB of memory is added to the game's total usage. We are working to fix this problem, but until then, please bear with us.
