Finally!  :viridian:
But the links don't work well. :victoria: Minor problems at the site's server I guess.

What happens if you already downloaded the extra levels included in this update?
Should I erase the old ones at the my documents directory?

And minor typo at the update log: It says six new levels, but there's actually seven levels in the list.

If you place them in the data folder the game will automatically overwrite the ones in your documents.

Hopefully my web hosting can take the strain. Let me know if it wont download and I'll pester Terry for a Mirror.

The Golden Spiral level seems to be broken. It's just a 1KB file.

Noted. I'll put it up again as soon as I can get a copy from Terry.

Thank you. And one more thing, "Open Level Folder" seems to do nothing?

Ah yeah, I removed it from this beta patch, just to save confusion. I'll probably add it back in when I add the missing level.

Thanks again. :)

Yeah, when I get back from Indiecade (providing this patch is stable) I'll be adding achievements, and then rolling it out there.
