Shortly after Ambrosia announced that SketchFighter 4000 Alpha reached final candidate 1, it has already reached final candidate 2. SketchFighter 4000 Alpha is a shooter that is reminiscent of Asteroids but uses graph-paper and sketches for animation.

Fixes in this version include:

* More nag dialogs at startup and quit. (Sorry, I guess you'll have to register the game afterall)

* Net highscores now get saved correctly to the local list too. In the process fixing and very strange bug that would cause problems with seemingly harmless code at what seemed completely random. Nice to have that down.

* Fixed rare crash where net game disconnect would infinitely recurse.

* Better locking so that you can't invite a player at the refuse dialog.

* Fixed Restrictive NAT warnings on high latency connections.

* Added option to mute music in the menus.

* Improved containment for the gray fighters in the End Zone.

* Fixed double "freeze" sound effect for the ice gun.
