Richard just why the keep on wth SEUCK after all these years the work you have put in you could wrote a better engine by now from scratch ??? i admire the work you have done.. but it's a little puzzling..

It is more or less a nostalgia trip. I have been using SEUCK since I first had my Commodore 64 in 1990. It is something I found to be great fun. I understand that SEUCK games do not please everybody, but SEUCK has been part of me since 1990.

Your music is great btw and your doing a great work with the engine past what i think the creator even thought of  :)
