Default 20th anniversary of Sword of Aragon

We should do something special for the 20th anniversary of Sword of Aragon. Ideally, it would be the release of the .NET version for Windows, but if not that (unlikely), what else?

There are two obstacles to that:
1. We don't own the copyright to Sword,
2. It's written in ancient QuickBASIC, which would cause me great pain to set up.

I'd like to finish the .NET version, but I seem to have another project right at the moment.

Yes, the project is this site. It takes every moment of my free time.

Copyrights last 75 years. We still have over 50 years until it's not copyrighted. Even though the copyright holder doesn't care right now, I'd hate to get hauled into court by Hasbro. Building a new game (AO) is much less risky, hence this game...

I run it in Win 98 compatibility mode, and specify full screen. The mouse won't work, though, so it's keyboard only.
