Updates for some older titles available

This news story will probably surprise some people. We've got an update available for two of our older titles, Crystal Caves & Secret Agent. Crystal Caves was released originally back in 1991, and Secret Agent in 1992!

These updates fix a problem that we were made aware of last month. On some computers running Windows XP, if you played the games, your system clock would be set backwards 100 years after exiting the game. This patch corrects that problem. There are NO other changes to the game than this, so if you're not having this problem, you don't need the patch.

The games are now available for sale again in our online store in either floppy disk or registered download formats. We have also reissued the shareware episode with this fix, as well as patches for the existing registered episodes of the games. Here are some download links for these various files:

A special thanks go out to Peter Veenstra from the DOSBox crew and Frank Maddin (Crystal Caves' original programmer) for helping out in getting these problems fixed, so we can bring you an update. A patch for a 14 year old game, that has to be some sort of record. :)
