John got the multiple user system working on Magnetic Billiards today, so players can create local accounts and sign in using different user names, so multiple people can play on the same machine with their own high scores, grand score, table rankings etc.

He used this graphic, which I thought I'd deleted. When we first decided to go for a Victorian theme, I did a quick google images search for "Victorian gentleman" and a drawing very much like this one came up. I virtually traced it, just to get something with the right line style in game prototype really quickly. I never intended it to be permanent, and I've since replaced it with a proper original drawing, but I obviously didn't delete it thoroughly enough!

It should be replaced with a proper character drawing in time for the next alpha build.
