Yes. I told it to send you a new password.

I hope so. One thing that is very easy to do would be something like a command

when biplane dead "set_ai player1 dragon",

meaning that the command "set_ai player1 dragon" would be executed when
the condition  "dead" for the sprite with tag "biplane" is fulfilled.
Then we have to add a little "daemon" which checks for these
conditions, but that should be easy.

Yes, indeed. Multiple players work already, I should just include the
damage again.
