New edition released, without that annoying console window in the background.

Well, there I go again, not checking my releases. OK. I fixed it AND tested it.

This time seems the data files are not included :)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "Spacewar.pyw", line 398, in ?
File "Spacewar.pyw", line 173, in main
pygame.error: Couldn't open Data/icon.png
Certainly there is not any 'data' subdir into the .zip

I had made this page when I thought it was going to be 3D. The screenshot was misleading. I submitted it without reviewing it as soon as the code was actually ready.

WHAT? It says $4.99? Blast. I thought I fixed that...

Activate for $4.99 for unlimited play! Nice =) That is good joke, dude!
