Colour code: fixed, fixed in next release, not reproduced, reproduced but not fixed

Firstly, a fundamental restriction, due to the way the A-code engine handles player input. Game-save (path)names cannot contain the dot character, except for the special case of ".." denoting the parent directory. All player input, including responses to prompts, is passed through the command parser, and dots are command separators (as are semicolons). Hence a game-save (path)name will be truncated at the first dot, and the rest will be assumed to be a separate command or response. The only exception is the parent directory notation, hardwired as a special case.
