Guys, guys. He said he was making a GUI for it. He's got it covered, just give him time. ~.^
JAVA is a great way to go, since its not system-specific, but it is truely horrid in terms of GUI and ease-of-use IMO. A difficult hurdle to overcome, and he's trying, I applaud him completely.
As for the changes I noticed, the only one was the missing EARTH in the background, behind the First Fleet HQ, in the very last "mission" of the FSPort, where the credits scroll. Not a big deal, just leads me to wonder if it's the only thing missing is all. It would be nice to know the cause too. Really could be just a slightly outdated mediavp or... well... god only knows what little things could cause this. XD
