Catalyst Deluxe is an engaging solitaire card game based on the (apparently) quite rare 10-20-30 game. The game consists of matching sets of three cards whose face values total 10, 20, or 30 points. For instance, a 4, a 6, and a 10 would total 20 points and could be removed. With the Ace worth one point, and all face cards worth ten points each, this is a great game for all ages to build your math skills and exercise your mind. Veteran solitaire card game players looking for a new challenge... this is it! Catalyst Deluxe is an easy game to learn, but it is not an easy game to win. With all these features, one thing is definitely certain: Catalyst Deluxe will be the most engrossing solitaire card game you will ever play.

Independent Virus Scans

There's a lot of malware out there on the Internet - viruses, spyware, and other software created to track what you do and make your computer slower. In light of all that, we're including links to independent software sites that have done virus scans of our software. Feel free to follow their links and see for yourself that we don't do anything we're not supposed to.

The following changes have been made since the initial release of Catalyst Deluxe:

Version 1.2 (January 2010)

NEW FEATURES:
	* All cards now have numbers added at runtime, which should improve readability
	* Added an Undo Last Deal feature (green undo arrow in upper right). This allows you to
		back up the last dealt card for those moments when you deal and immediately notice
		a match you *could* have made.

  FIXES:
	* Updated SDL Window Manager, which includes several fixes we released with Anirah v1.1

Version 1.1 (July 2009)

NEW FEATURES:
	* Added 3 card decks - Anirah, Math, and Lost Luggage
	* Added 7 new card backs
	* Added 3 new background images
	* High Scores now keep track of the number of columns you started and ended the game with

  FIXES:
  	* Updated SDL Window Manager to version 1.1, including a few minor fixes and features
	* Fixed issue with Okay and Cancel buttons on the Options screen not always accepting mouse clicks
	* Replaced stock random number generator with a much better one
	* Sidebar now fades when menu is open, a subtle ploy to focus player's attention on the open window
	* Using the X window close button now functions properly
	* Replaced standard exe icon in game window with Catalyst icon
	* Updated localization code to use culture specific number formatting
	* Removed obsolete 640x480 res from menu since the new cards are barely readable in it and I was having
		way too much trouble seeing past the menu anyway. I really hope nobody needed that resolution  :(
	* Added 1280x720 resolution (aka 720p) because I wanted it for testing on my Mac Mini plugged into Paul's TV
	* Revamped all previous card decks to improve graphical alignment while also reducing file size

Version 1.0 (January 2009)
