Revisional Differences

In version 2.0, you can ask the computer to suggest your next move, and Command-drag pieces to set up a custom situation.

Application Bundle

MacProject's creator code was MPRJ; Backgammon continues down the alphabet with MPRK for a creator code and MPRL for a document type.

Version 2.0 was produced by David Young, who changed the creator code to MPDY, incorporating his initials. The unused MacProject icon no longer exists in this version.

Intentionally Left Blank

"Bogus...Alert. Bogus...Alert." (a featureless white dialog box surfaces from the sea)

DLOG 9 is an empty dialog whose contents belong to the nonexistent DITL 9. The DLOG's window title is "Bogus Alert".
