This is one Special Edition you won't want to miss.

Help Wanted!

Here's your chance to help -- Songbird is looking for new graphics for
Protector: SE! This includes:

   * New title screen
   * New landscapes
   * New background/starfield
   * Cut scenes for the intro and finale

you must use the same dimensions and palette information as provided for
any in-game graphics (backgrounds and landscapes) -- no changes to the size
or colors are allowed. Other graphics, such as cut scenes or the title
screen, may have their own unique 256-color palette, so be creative. All
graphics need to be submitted in .LBM (Deluxe Paint) compressed format.

Additionally, you are welcome to submit new music for the game. All music
must be in MOD format, and can only use the samples included in the
following MOD from Protector. You can't alter the samples, nor can you
change their instrument number (position) in the MOD itself. But feel free
to create any patterns and melodies using these samples. Please avoid
using "special effects" in the MODs other than volume control and tempo --
the MOD conversion tool I use doesn't like most effects.

By submitting any audio or visual samples to Songbird, you agree that these
samples may be used royalty free by Songbird in any current or future
project. If you do not agree, don't submit anything.
