Bejeweled 2 is the sequel of the first game in the popular match-3 puzzle series.

Debugging Font

To do:
Figure out if there is anything that actually uses this font and if there is, figure out if it's actually "debug" related.

In "resources.xml" file contains an entry for a debug font, which is as the path implies, Continuum Medium.

<Font id="DEBUG" path="ContinuumMedium18outline.txt" sm_path="ContinuumMedium12outline.txt" />

PAK support

The game's executable has full support for loading from a main.pak, unfortunately, PopCap never released a version of the game using one and the game does not read the music directory in a PAK.
