    Friends,

    Well, it seems that I made a few mistakes in updating the documentation for this new release. The upgrade to 2.0a will require an additional process. In addition to copying the archive and overwriting the current installation you will need to take two additional steps:

    In the QWKIGMxx directory:
    1) rename QWKIGM1.DAT (if it exists) to QWKIGM.DAT (remove the '1').
    2) delete all other QWKIGM?.DAT files from the CCIGMxx directory.

    Thank you for making this change even if it was in the past :) Was never sure why LORD did it this way but nice to not have to make all these edits just to change a drop file path.

    hahaha, yw..

    i was looking through the 25 year old code, marveling at the encrypted
    overlays that were required due to the sheer amount of text in the igm. I thought to myself, 'ya know, I was pretty good at this shit at 25!' Then reality slapped my upside the noggin'. Yeah, dumbass, now you cant even get blackjack working right!

    hahahaha! SUX to get old...
