Release Notes:Please delete any older versions of Version Checker from your Dink Smallwood Directory before downloading this updated version, installing over the top and merging them can cause bugs.

When I uploaded v2.01 of Version Checker, I accidentally uploaded the wrong file. An older, bugged version, instead of the new working version.

- ALL the fixes mentioned in the previous version should now be applied.
- Since I had a reason to update, I also fixed a typo, which I wasn't going to bother uploading a whole new version to fix.

- Changed the default behaviour of Version Checker, so rather than forcing the player to quit the game on old versions, it simply disaplys a warning message, as per suggestions on the forum.
- Fixed a bug where the 1.8.x version of DinkHD would be detected as version 1.91!
- Fixed a bug so version checker works correctly in any version of Dink Smallwood older than 1.08 (not that anyone should be developing dmods for 1.07 or prior, these days).
- Updated documentation to be more clear on what each value returned by &vcheck refers to, in terms of specific client builds of either FreeDink or DinkHD, as per suggestions on the forum.

This new version now removes the need for an initial "version checker" screen after the player starts a new game on the title screen.

- Got rid of relying on editor sprite and added a global variable instead.
- Implementing this into a dmod is now a lot easier.
- No need for the player pressing keystrokes to test between 1.08 and FreeDink 109.6 anymore. Everything is automatic.
- Version is checked after the splash screen, so you can force a version or terminate the game with a notification to the player to use the correct version for your dmod.
- For FreeDink, Hardcoded 1.08 version text is removed on the title screen and replaced with more accurate "build" version of FreeDink.
- Version is automatically checked after loading a save game and a 3 second text notification is displayed at the bottom of the screen "Dink Smallwood - Save file loaded".
- Updated video tutorial for implementing this new version (Linked below, and embedded further down).

If you already have the old Version Checker implemented in your dmod, see the readme file inside this new version, there is a link provided to a video tutorial for anyone that requires updating, rather than a fresh implementation from scratch.
