Still working on :Midi file playing alters scroll speed. 1) Multi Monitor Support.
To use this option you will need to be running Win98 and have installed and configured upto 4 video cards. We have used no-name S3 chipset video cards with good results. They have 4 meg of video ram each. The cards were around $39 each from out local retailer. 

2) One additional scroll box and two graphic/image boxes were also added. These also required an extra editing text box and two more image lists. 

3) Small wav files can also be played. They need to fit into available ram however.

4) More frames have been added. They include box drop shadows in solid and gradient colors.

5) The date/time panel can now use the long and short date and time formats

6) Key Board keys:
a) [Esc] key can now be used to close the alignment screen and the play screen.
