Ah, so, put a string or something at the end of the datafile? It could be known what the offset to that string should be. If the string is not there, then poof! Bad file alert. Do I have this correct? If so, this is a pretty simple test that ought to be easy to implement. And I would run it if the new bootloader isn't detected.
Yes, that would be it. You could run it regardless of bootloader version if you would like to cache some locations within the file anyway for faster access during the game. Skimming the file this way isn't slow, and at some point it would have to be done anyway to eventually get to the farthest bytes, so if you cache, that would insure that in case of the new bootloader, transitions during the game would be faster.

nice (pronounced niouse)

It can ever run the RLE demo with the UART interrupt ended scan lines.

Thank you to both you and Jubatian for this :)

Something I've just noticed. When selecting a game from the DB, you are not presented with a unique URL for the game anymore. How would you now go about linking directly to your game if you've forgot your old game id?

Wow! That feature was missing. I put a link to the selected game's direct play url right next to the download as .zip button.

Thanks for the tip!
