A demo that works better than the last one

I've patched a bunch of cocos so hopefully this version will work on more people's computers:

  stalk-2.zip

Move with WASD or arrows. Aim with mouse, shoot with LMB. No, there's nothing to shoot at yet.
 
Please let me know what you think.

Strange error:

Sorry, no edit on comments and I posted a little hastily. I just edited out config=config in the director.init call, and it works fine. Great rail shooter concept! Really sweet visuals. 
Looks interesting.
Ah, you probably can't do multisampling (anti-aliasing). I'll put in code to handle that.
Looks cool! Reminds me of "Jack and the Beanstalk" for some reason ;)

When the left mouse button is pressed repeatedly (aka shooting a lot), the movement of the aim (moving mouse around) seems impaired or jaggy.
I think maybe that released version didn't include the on_mouse_drag handler ... if you hold the mouse button down and move the mouse does the target star move?
If I hold down the mouse button, and move the mouse, the target star stays still.
Yep, that means version 2 didn't include the on_mouse_drag handler. The current version does so you won't have the same issue.
