This is a very informative file, and gives the user the required information to edit map.dat, dink.dat and hard.dat from any dink mod.

It also gives enough detail for people to write several utilities, like the sprite replacer, editors, and the like.

WC explains in depth the contents of each file, byte by byte, and points out the rather wierd "features" of this map format.

I found this file very usefull, and i would say that it is an essential item in the inventory of anyone who is thinking of creating an editor or utility which will have to read/write any of the three main .dat files in Dink SMallwood.

Good job WC,
