miniSphere 5.2 beta 2 is now available with more bug fixes and optimizations, better Sphere v1/v2 interop (including tweaks to how FlipScreen is handled in v2 code), support for all Sphere v1 surface blend modes and the ability to use Z.deflate and Z.inflate in Cell.

For the sake of our continued health I very much hope that Fat Cerberus does not become skilled enough at whatever arcane art it would require to cause computers to spawn enourmous man eating pigs ~Rhuan

Found a bug in beta 2: Calling MapEngine() or FlipScreen() from the event loop will cause the engine to crash on exit. :disappointed:

I have an idea of the cause already; fix will be in either beta 3 or 5.2.0 final, whichever comes first.

This just in!  miniSphere 5.2b3 is up and fixes more bugs and brings new features for backward compatibility testing: 1) An apiLevel field in the game manifest for targeting a specific version of the API, and 2) --retro command-line option for SpheRun that makes the engine emulate the targeted API level (anything newer is disabled).
