Fet vs. Windows, round I

I have now spent three evenings trying to get Soft Landing working on Windows. I know it works, because Jules runs it all the time. I installed XP on my MacBook, set up Subversion, downloaded Python and Pygame and PyOpenGL, checked out Soft Landing… But the game keeps crashing with weird errors, like claiming that I’m trying to iterate over a module when I’m iterating over a dictionary, or that it can’t find ctypes, a module I had never even heard of, let alone tried to use. Perhaps I need to start over from scratch, or something.

It doesn’t help that most of my decades-ingrained Mac behaviors do nothing or do something completely different in Windows. I’ve hit Command dozens of times, ready to perform a keyboard shortcut, only to have the Windows menu come up… ~_~
