        Release Notes: This version has been well tested and should be considered stable. Major changes include new camera controls, use of the mouse to tweak/rotate/zoom, a simplified menu structure, graphical installer, vastly better visuals due to lighting & shadows, fixes for many rendering artefacts, recognizers, new textures / create your own sets, 3D positional sound & doppler effects, more movie-like default, and much stronger AI options.

          Release Notes: Rewritten computer player, new skill levels, different arena sizes and speeds, experimental speed oscillation, configure players (human, computer, none), a very cool new model, levels-of-detail for the model, configure keyboard controls (not saved between games yet), volume settings for music/fx in the Audio menu, new wall & floor texture, sound effects, trail decals on solid trails, trail bow before cycle, a new GUI background, dynamic menu, a screenshot function, fix for the lightcycle going backwards, an arena overview camera mode when dead, GNU autoconf, and textures in PNG format.

            Release Notes: More eye candy, including exploding lightcycle, 'crash'-texture', bilinear filtering, new menu background & logo, fading explosion debris, lightcycle does now turn smoothly (doesn't look right, but funny nonetheless), and a new floor texture; other useful changes are new switches to capture the mouse (useful for Voodoo1/2 owners) and disabling the lightcycle/crash texture (for slow machines), and fixes for some of the more obvious bugs.

            Superb game
            This really is a quite superb game, I enjoy playing it,

            but a hardware accelerated graphics card really is

            nessecairy to run it smoothly. But if you have a fast

            card then this is THE tron game for you.
