Congratulations, Looks great. I hope it does very well for you.
As far as the artifacts, Were these PNGs under the fields? From Photoshop? If so there is a very weird instance where transparencies produce this kind of visual effect. I have been able to solve that problem on a Mac. The problem is there is something 'legacy' left over in the way photoshop (and some other apps as well) saves pngs that only shows up in certain applications and or when using certain techniques to display a png with transparency. A lot of people mistakenly have been blaming powerpoint/preview/etc. on the internet, but it is actually an issue with legacy code used to write out transparencies in pngs.
If this is the case I can box up my workaround (it is a kludge however) and send it to you.

I had got it to work on 2.2 by using software rendering instead of OpenGL, but the engine started drawing crazy blue artifacts around all the transparent fields. They didn't coincide with any object shapes, it was random blocks of noise. I couldn't release it that way.
