I have had a look to the english reference manual. I think I can translate my 
level. I used the german manual to write my level. The new denotation isn't 
mentioned there yet.

I haven't found a description of "safeaction" yet. But I will kepp on looking 
for it.
Isn't it possible first to kill the item and then set the actor? In some other 
levels I did so. That would be the easiest way to fix the problem.

Well, I know. I will delete this level and the function.

That's funny! I didn' know that. I'm using enigma version 1.01. The last level 
I have is VII#24 "Temple of Gold". If there are new levels I don't have them. 
I'm Sorry Brian.
How can I get these lost levels? Do I have to install version 1.10?

Ok, I will do that, if I get the level.
