=====
v1.02 Highlights
=====

Two settings have been added to improve mouse behavior.

1) The user may now disable smart camera hints that direct the camera towards specific targets
2) The user may now disable camera altitude dampening, which will make the
mouse more responsive in pitching the camera

Enhanced error reporting has been added. When possible, the game will write out the state of the game to an auxiliary file, which can then be sent to tech support to assist in resolving the issue. The file will be in the installation directory and will be of the form PsychoDumpRXXX-YYYYY.dmp, where XXX-YYYYY represents the internal build version.
