Good job there. the screen shots look really cool. will the patch be included officially ?

btw, i took a look at the patch, im guessing that your shaping
breaks on transparent chars (a.k.a NSM). you might want to look into
if you need any help, i'll be around...

btw, i got Mandrake-10 CDs, want 'em ?? i can come to zagazig again :-))
