okay ..dices current checks [ 1.31 ] are at the.. archives directory at
present..objects rfa etc
there is also a line in the map init .. most mappers remove this as there
has been the odd load problem with servers
all mods presently running from the mods folder use added lines to the
init.con so this will be added to the crc check no question..we already know
this from the leaked patch ..IE: the problems some are having with altered
init.cons as the date changes in the document..
the only exception is running modifications from within the map itself ALA
coral_sea using the "run command"
however ..as andeas points out ..we may be able to generate a crc for
altered maps of that nature as well...
