The Oxyd emulation in Enigma 0.81 was never meant to be complete; I'm
surprised that so many people seem to enjoy it nevertheless.  Finishing
the emulation at least for Oxyd 1 is one of my priorities right now; I
aim for full Oxyd 1 compatiblity in Enigma 0.90.  Per.Oxyd and later are
a little more difficult because they add a couple of objects that Enigma
does not support yet (like the hover boards for example).

These might be invisible sensors used in many of the Oxyd levels, I'm
not sure.  Expect them to work in the next release :-)

works in Enigma's development version

Mhh, this *should* work...

The calculator enables the mouse-o-meter in Per.Oxyd; it serves no other

We always need beta-testers for upcoming releases... would you like to
help testing the oxyd emulation for Enigma 0.90? The beta testing phase
is probably still more than a month off, but we always need volunteers.
