Continuing To Go Around

Mancala's coming along nicely, now. I think!!
All the Landing rules seem to be working, and the game-end stuff is also functional, but AL's still not very good at the game, so a little more work on AL is needed.
But, definitely getting there!
I did have to rejig a small part of my drawing routine, so that I could draw AL backwards. (Drawing at Scale-x, instead of Scale+x)
Instead of manually mathing-up the values myself, I'm now leaving it up to Canvas's Translate/Scale stuff.
Whether that's made the drawing routine better or worse (eg, slower!!) will have to be stress tested once things are uploaded, but I *think* it's ok.
As per usual, though, that'll be on a browser-by-browser case, and I might have to disable it. It's a fairly easy switch if I do, but I'll also have to draw AL facing the other way!!
Speaking of "functions that aren't quite ready for real-world use", I've had to disable the lovely glowing sheen that I added to the gems, because Firefox apparently wasn't very good at doing Blend Modes. Bah, humbug!
Anyway, AL to do, then I should be done!
