Week #22 update

One of the most requested features is for more runners. Two more were added a while back but were removed (I wasn't really ready to put them properly). Jane Peril (Jake's wife) and Digmo (presumably Wes' squash partner) are now back and fully working!

They'll be more to come in the coming weeks and playable LAN at the end of the month for the June build.

A name in parenthesis and in bold is the finder of the bug/quirk. Thanks to all, I really do appreciate your time and support. Cheers!
