It's always been a touchy topic, this one. There used to be a board editor around for a very limited time back in 1999, I believe. It was created by a guy who went by the name NOPeR, but it wasn't an official board editor, though. Considering that DX-Ball 2 was (and still is) distributed as shareware, I suppose a board editor was not really in LDA's interest, in spite of an inevitable demand for it, as time has shown. However, in cooperation with NOPeR, they did work on a solution to the problem. First of all, they set a restriction to the game that would limit the number of user-created boards one could play. This was, of course, to protect their property of sales. Meanwhile, the solution that was being worked out was intended to let owners of Board Pack 1 be able to play user-created board-sets with no restrictions.
