note to myself: when I test (variable & 8), I get 0 or 8, not 0 or 1 (as if they're boolean). blush

too bad the mistake was a 1-line problem in a very large set of changes, so it went unnoticed when I double-checked rev.7549.
of course, now that I was looking for vertical issues, it hit me immediately

Fixing this silly mistake, I was able to get the following improvements (left = broken, right = fixed)

(Ardy Lightfoot)
[Linked Image from] [Linked Image from]

(Tin Star)
[Linked Image from] [Linked Image from]

of course, both games have now definitely better ingame graphics as well smile

and I'd expect Romancing Saga to be fine too
