  • updated FNA to 19.12.01
  • updated MonoKickStart (macOS and Linux users)
  • The Legend Returns audio mode matches the Original game (tracks repeat, don't wait to simulate CD-ROM, or play the ambient tracks) (efrixes, Jeffrey P)
  • Cyrillic characters added to tooltip font (Hunk790)
  • online games will add extra runners to puzzles as needed - this means you can play any existing puzzle set without have to edit to add extra runners (Discord)
  • PressToOpenPartsBin toggle added to config file - set to false to open the Parts Bin with a single click (handy for tablets/laptops) (Discord)
  • RestoreGame added to game menu - this allows you to restart your game back to when you started play (from a save, etc) (Roberto)
  • when a runner has no lives left in an online game, the player can now control a monk until he gets another life (cheating/transfer/going to next puzzle)
