Hey, just downloaded this game on recommendation from a friend, and while it all looks pretty good, one thing is glaring out at me. In the sound options, under list sounds> item drop, it refers to an item_drop.wav that doesn't exist. Assuming that this was down to some kind of corrupt download on my side, I went to google, only to find this bug posted from 3 years ago: ... tid=544942

Stating that the file has been missing for years, and apparently continues to be missing. If there are no plans to add the sound, then why include the option, as it otherwise seems more to imply a lack of care by the developers. Especially as its a file which has apparently never existed in the first place. Great game aside from this though!
