    I'm not sure if there's just a setting I didn't notice or something, but Is it possible to have a choice of turning the starting music back on? I know that muting the music is much more convenient for testing and whatnot, but I'd really appreciate having the option again. (I don't know why, exactly, but I really miss that opening tune!)

    Not at present. It isn't a volume-based muting operation, or a boolean "check this setting and skip if appropriate" flag. The relevant MP3 file within the SWF was replaced with a blank placeholder.

    ModGuy's rationale was presumably that this is the most reliable way of achieving the desired goal, and the one least likely to introduce any risk of incompatibility or crashing. I think that it was overkill, because the GUI allows the user to disable the intro noise -- you'd need to hear it only once per "clean install".

    You can manually re-add the intro jingle if you open up the SDT.SWF file in JPEXS (make a backup first, of course).

    Outstanding! That did the trick, all right. I don't know why I like it, but I like it (like so many things, eh?).

    My everlasting thanks, oh mighty moderator.
