DTX 2 Beta Testing

This is beta 4 of DTX 2, and it should also be the final one. I've gone through all the bug reports I've received, and added some useful functions to the program as well. See the Features section below for more detailed info. If you find something wrong with this version, please send me a mail at once. If your favorite bug is still around and not listed in the Problem Report Section, it probably won't get fixed at all unless you let me know about it...

Reported bugs/problems

The following problems are known and will (hopefully) be fixed before final release. There is no need to send any error reports on these problems.
  • 'File Not Found' message when importing bitmaps
    In some cases, DTX 2 says it can't find a file after presenting an imported bitmap on the screen. I'm currently looking for the reason to this problem.
