	Yes they did. They decided to go Win32 exclusive, so started using a
Win32 compiler instead. All quite simple really. I don't think they have time or
can be bothered with trying to get the MicroSoft DirectDraw & all that working
in RSXDJNT or whatever. And it's not as though they're short of cash . . .
