Howdy from a long time fan!

Hey Folks,

I haven't been here for years after I had problems with my latest computer (streaking behind moving objects) which made the screen saver unusable, and since I am practically not using the old Celeron Win98 SE computer anymore, I just hadn't had the chance of enjoying the Aquarium for the past 5 years.

I finally looked it up a couple of weeks ago and found there were updated video card drivers, loaded them up and lo and behold, I can run the old Marine Aquarium again with NO STREAKING

So I checked out the new version 3 and wanted to say to Jim and the crew, it is Amazing, which is so rare in this day and age where 'upgraded' usually means 'bloated and aggravating to use' (after 5 years I still miss the ease of use and simplicity of Windows 98!)

Kudos to Jim and the Crew for keeping up the good work! You Rock!!!

Any version can be upgraded to v3.2 for $9.95.

The information I can't find is which is the latest version that was included for free for the original deluxe key I got before v1 that included some free updates to the 3d background ?

Well, this is a long story...
As far as I remember it was decided, that the 3D background is not included as a free update, because a whole re-writing of the program was necessary.

But all the older versions are still fine, I think.
Right now I tried to run 99D, what a blast from the past, but a really nice queen angel...

So, the last version before the 3D background that would still allow his key code would be 2.5?

No matter what, if he has a XXXXXX-xxxxxx keycode, he's going to need to contact SereneScreen Tech Support. MA1, 2, and MA3 all require different keycodes than the .99 keys which only worked until, I believe, 99K.
