Please remember that oxyd emulation is not yet complete. However we do
intend to have full oxyd emulation by version 1.0.

These question marks represent objects that enimga does no yet have support
for, or objects that whose format in the oxyd dat files ae not yet fully

Hm... i have not had this happen to me, but again it is probably due to lack
of the object in enigma
(yet), or lack of understanding of that objects format.

I am not too suprised about this one, as laser interactions in enigma do not
yet quite match those which are in oxyd, but we do intend complete support.

Hmm... i am really not sure about this one... pease send me a level number.

I am not sure that the calculator has any function even in oxyd... if it
does though, i suspect that it is not needed to win any level... I will have
to check on this.
