Not sure whether this is something you want or can look into, but:

HideBots are apparently tracking the player, even if stealthed.
A nasty surprise that can be.
Mantised here.

As an aside, where do you (still) want feedback on the game, Keith?
Here or on Mantis? Or neither?

Thanks for what you are currently doing for the game, presumably in your spare time.
It is much appreciated :).
Craving some more color and variety in your next Bionic run? Grab a boost and a couple of custom floors!

Interesting, will take a look when I get a chance.

Either.  Mantis is good for actual bug reports or straightforward change requests and for "filing" suggestions so that they don't get forgotten (forum threads quickly fade out of sight once the posts stop).  Forums are better for "I don't like what it's doing, but I'm not 100% sure what the solution is" discussions, which generally includes any significant mechanical/balance alterations, etc.  In those cases the idea is that the forum thread will produce a consensus and one or more mantis records for what's desired to be done.

You're very welcome :)  And yes, just my hobby-programming time (that isn't going to AIW's non-expansion stuff).  As Chris said recently, Arcen's essentially done with beyond-bugfixes support for Bionic. 

But I'm not :)
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games? Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

That, Keith, are the best news I have heard today :). Kudos!
