The .xml file should be self-explanatory. You can have as many <PUZZLE> nodes as you have puzzles. Each puzzle requires it’s own node. These must be .jpg or .swf images, and they should be in the same directory as the freejigsaw2007.swf file. The <GAME_BACK> and <BUTTON_X> nodes are for your own graphics to re-skin the interface.
