     * Occasional crashes under Windows 95.
     * Right arm would get blown off more often than left.
     * Tried to load instructor's voice from CD even if sound was
       turned off (caused some systems to pause for a while).
     * Would hang on exit for some systems.
     * Minor improvements for Cockpit Controls, including warnings for
       multiple functions attached to a single control.
     * Arrow keys on numeric keypad (not the cursor keys) can be used
       to navigate around the clan halls.
     * The boot disk maker has improved.
