On the long list of changes that have been done to "FIX" JSW, you have left the erroneous square from the title screen unchanged. Inside the lower portion of the letter "S". Is a diagonal square that has the top part green and the lower part black. This should be - top part green lower part blue.


That's already been brought to my attention by Richard Hallas. :-)

But more importantly I fixed the very weird keyboard that Matthew drew.

 

Ah yes, the black keys on Matthew's title screen are wrong.  Well spotted!  (They should alternate between a pair of two black keys, and a group of three, as you move along the keyboard.  But in Matthew's graphic, there are two adjacent pairs of black keys under the word 'ENTER'.)

 

Also in the title screen of Norman's 'Software Projects + Bug Byte' version of Manic Miner, I've just noticed the Software Projects triangle rotating on the grassy area, the filling in of the blacked out areas (where parts of the layout of 'Final Barrier' would go), and the initials D.P.R. in the band of yellow and green 'scrub' (in character-row 7)...

Clarification: the above is sometimes the Software Projects triangle, but at other times it is the 'thresher' guardian. i.e. the sprite drawn in that position on the title screen depends on which version of the game you are about to play - corresponding to whichever vertical guardian appears in 'The Warehouse'.

:) I'm torn between some of the guardian sprite differences although I think the Bug Byte Warehouse 'blades' look a bit better than the SP Logo ones, mind you the 'Blade' from JSW when applied looks even better than the BB version 'Blade' as it is I think a slightly nicer sprite design.

 

Similar to the Cold Room guardians, the JSW Cold Store 'Penguin' applied here looks a fraction nicer too but there's not a lot of difference between them at first glance.

 

Amoebatrons both versions looks reasonable although the SP 'face' ones in Amoebatron's Revenge look reasonable all in all.
