Oh, there it is. Nevermind my comment on the "Table of contents" links. :D

Cool lessons, cool program. Keep up the good work! Suggestions:
1) Lesson page links/buttons on each page would be handy. I could then quickly get back to the part of the lesson where I left off. :)
2) Also please update lessons to take into account the new "Atlas" features (there is no "background" tab up there anymore).

I downloaded the CC assets file to start the second game in the crash course but it is not in the game folder. I can find the file in the right folder in my computer but can't open it in Stencil. Please help.

We're sorry about the incorrect sound assets. They've now been corrected.
