This is a Windows friendly Diku Editor for Gizmo. [connect here] It has most of the bugs worked out of it now... but a few may still be hiding
DikuWin Version 1.1.0 (5.91MB) single exe to install
MD5SUM = f6d7332a23174f4d8b2088bba3499ae6

I'm sorry it was huge but this will make sure that it will install on any windows machine
All updates from now on will be in the form of patch files

DikuWin Version 1.1.1 (99.7KB) unzip this and replace the DikuWin.exe on your computer with the one is this file. I got lazy on this one...

Things to Keep in Mind

1. This was written several years ago in Visual Basic 6.0. Due to major changes in a feature known as command arrays being removed when .NET was introduced. For all purposes this is abandoned.
2. If you find a bug You can contact me. If you like and I'll try to point you in the correct direction.
3. There will be more bugs when working with files created or edited outside of DikuWin. Still report these but they will be a slightly lower priority.
4. BACKUP YOUR FILES! I don't want to see an entire area go up in smoke... so back up your files. At least until we have it tested and "stable"
5. This is a Windows application so make sure to run unix2dos on unix files you are trying to edit with DikuWin, and you will need to run dos2unix before they can be added to the mud.

Version History:

Current known bugs(by priority)
