Emerald Mine Club level collection 3.1.2 released!

This is just a small update of the Emerald Mine Club level collection that fixes (improves) the names of the level artwork sets – before, there could be three graphics sets with the same name (one with ECS style artwork, one with AGA style artwork, and a third one that contains the title screens, all with the same name). Now they all have different names, to be able to tell them apart.

If you are not interested in configuring custom artwork from Emerald Mine Club level sets, you can easily skip this update, which is otherwise available from the Levels & Artwork page.
