Update of the arcade game BOH

Simone Bevilacqua has updated the commercial arcade game BOH:
  • makes the game run natively on Linux (requires an x86 CPU, SDL 1.2 and SDL_mixer-1.2);
  • avoids the restart of the whole program upon theme change (very useful when playing in full screen, as the monitor does not need to re-sync);
  • adds themes randomization options;
  • adds the "USE ENHANCED WEAPONS" option (makes killing enemies easier);
  • slows down the blinking of the automapper direction indicator;
  • adds video mode suggestions;
  • fixes a minor bug in the zoom selection handling (in rare cases it could cause an illegal memory access);
  • fixes bad centering at 4x zoom (a couple of parentheses were missing);
  • links the AmigaOS version to the latest SDL;
  • links the Windows version to a fresh build of the custom framework (by mistake an outdated framework had been used with the consequence that, on some machines, input handling was partially broken);
  • includes some graphical retouches to the themes "castle" and "warm";
  • adds synopses to the phases of the mission "tougher and tougher";
  • updates and improves the user's manual;
  • improves some translations;
  • some other changes.

Additionally a Linux port of BOH was published. (cg) (Translation: dr)
