I've yet to do an actual volume slider (stop begging, it's coming. gosh.) but everything else is pretty much done there. Tell me what you think (anyone who says the old one is better will die a slow and painful death).

You can also see in the screenshot that there are new buttons for Languages and Resolution. These new buttons also have right-click support.

That's really about it for visual stuff. I've done a load of fixes, changes and literally rewrote all of the major systems in Crawle over the past 2 days so the game should hopefully be waaaay more optimised.
