I've made a few tasty tweaks to the engine now, mainly fixing some bugs and adding a few new features to the client before I update the server.  Now I have added:
  • Wings!  You'll only see them if you're playing against me
  • Instant rematch option.  I was getting fed up of having to start new games every time so I added a "play again" button to just play the same person again.  Very handy
  • Lobby happening in the background.  It was still making pops and noises and stuff whilst playing, that has been fixed
  • Some menu improvements.  Tweaks made to the logic of the menu screens has improved them a little.
  • Server enhancements.  Games are now handled more efficiently on the server.
I'm sure there's other stuff but that's the things I can remember, I'm sure there are more.

Today I have played against one Mexican, three Canadians, a Californian currently living in Italy and 2 people from London.  Oh, and one guy from Ireland too.

When someone enters in the chat the word "HI" the font used makes the word hard to read

Lovely updates =D You could also add like visual marks for seasoned players (like, a crown unlocked at 100 wins or so). Also, the font is a little hard to read sometimes. It also screws up the '='.

I have a couple of comments about the chat...

1. You can't use symbols... like "&" which is very useful when you only have a few seconds to type between turns!

2. It would be nice if the chat window hung around for a few seconds after the game ends so you can thank/congratulate your opponent and check if they want a rematch.
