They once paid me to code for a living. But I'd rather 'dink around' all day.

@all:
Okay, so "I'm back".

So, what's happening Dink fans?--> Are you enjoying the story line? What about the quest across the mudflats? What do you think of the new ideas I added, the graphics I used and the extensive redeployment of existing DN development resources? What do you think about the big moral decision Dink needs to make? Did you find the land of Amazin fun to explore?

Regarding the size of the glitters-v1_00.dmod file --> Sorry for the long download. I'm hoping that for most folks it's not too much trouble. A number of the graphical elements are rather large (totaling to 85M uncompressed), and, I've got 47M (uncompressed) worth of interesting sound files. I thought it more fun to include all of those, and I hope you agree with me.

Status of [All that Glitters] --> I have attempted to address the two concerns raised here:
(#1 Dink dying "multiple times when trying to leave the docks at the start".
#2 A "series of text lines (white) which scroll upward Very fast and cannot be read".)
But as the above issues do not seem to be preventing game play, I will hold off uploading the new version in case there are more matters to deal with that come up soon.

In case you wondered what was causing the delay in my response --> I was attempting to upgrade my PeeCee to Ubuntu 18.04 and I had a few difficulties. Chief among those were problems with my graphics card no longer being supported for Linux by the manufacturer. Eventually, I had to revert back to 16.04 for now, and then restore all my backups, etc. Unless someone develops the graphics card driver I need, I'll stick with 16.04 for a few more years. Sigh...
