Fixed a bug in the Homework 5 code. If you pulled before Mon Nov 20 13:26:07 2017 -0600 (commit ef2eded) you'll need to update. The flaw causes a fatal OpenGL error, and is due to an uninitialized variable. The modified code is in hw05.cc. If you haven't modified that file a git pull is safe. If you have modified hw05.cc and don't want to risk learning about merge collisions at a time of year when there's already plenty to do, then make the following change by hand: Add the line bos_tiles[0] = 0; to routine World::init().
