When i start it up and enter the path of my Dmod, it says: Path not found in module CLEAN
at address 053E:0438. I'm sure i typed in my D-mod directory name with ~1 at the end

If your dmod's name is more than 6 characters long it won't work.

Yep.

That's 6 letters and ~1

Chaotic are you sure you're doing it right? With me the path would look like this:
D:\Games\Dinksm~1\barrel

Well, the DOS standard is 8.3. If you exceed that 8 the name is shortened to 6 letters and ~1 (or ~2 or ~3, etc) is added.

If it suddenly started working then the Dink Engine has a memory leak (probably with strcpy). Seth uses strcpy instead of strncpy. BAD SETH!
