Description of problem:
Summary is pretty self explanatory, but...

Chromium and Maelstrom are such GREAT games!  Why aren't they in the main Games

Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at your menus
2. see the utter lack of 2 very cool games
3. be forced to go to the "extras" menu to find them

One issue may be that these games pretty much lock up 
your computer hard if you don't have hardware 3D acceleration,
unless that was fixed. But yeah these are cool games.

Comment 2 Jens Knutson 2002-12-15 19:49:02 UTC
damn, you're right about that... well, in Chromium's case, anyhow.  Maelstrom,
however, is just an SDL game, and doesn't need any 3D acceleration - I've just
tested it on a machine I've got here that doesn't do 3D.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-13 04:49:55 UTC
Moving to Maelstrom to add it to default menu, seems like a good idea 
to me. However we are slightly past menu freeze so it may be 
delayed a release.

I believe this is fixed in current builds.
