Hmmm...I guess you haven't played for a while as most of the changes
you mentioned were added in earlier releases. For example, the water
on level 1. I took that out and moved it to a later level because I
wanted to do more with it such as be able to swim underwater, and I
couldn't make that kind of change to level 1 without completely
recreating the entire level from scratch.
As for the alt key that is an annoying problem do to Windows. When you
press it it activates the little context menu at the corner of the
screen sometimes and I've been trying to figure out how to keep it
from doing that without disabling the pulldown menus altogether.
