General

I finished my RIFF AVI player this week. If you look at last weeks update, you'll see the nice YouTube video of what went wrong with decoding the original cut-scenes. For those of you who don't know or didn't read last week's update, Astro and Reef Worlds + the Mad Monks' Revenge ending scene are not in the proprietary Presage format, rather plain RIFF AVI using a 1992 era Microsoft spec.

Fast forward a week and voila!

*Beware of murky water!*

I still don't know why the two extra themes + ending scene do not follow the original Presage format. It is not like The Legend Returns and The Mad Monks' Revenge were decades apart. Odd, it is. On the other hand, I imagine it is far easier to use AVI files than modify videos into a custom format.

Some features;

What I'll probably do next week
