If I can't get it sorted out by the end of January I'll consider taking scoreboards out, which is a shame because it took about 10 evenings across about a month and a half to put it in. I was making improvements to other parts of the game at the same time, so it's not a total loss.
On the flip side there's time for the art to be changed. Does anyone want to make a little bit of 2D art? I don't think I have anything of value to offer in return.
