Lately I've been getting this problem. When I press space or H to show hardness, it will only show stamped hardness and sprite hardness. Any hardness from eg. cliffs or coastlines don't show up anymore.

The weird part is, it doesn't happen on all DMODs I open with it. This bug started after I began using FreeDink (recently) and I'm beginning to think that may have had some impact on the matter.

Anyways, I've tried a number of things including running the original Dink.exe and re downloading this, but neither helped.

New discovery, this also happens with DinkEdit so it's not exclusive to WinDinkEditPlus. Move this topic plz.

Edit 2:
Well, it turns out the hardness isn't there at all for some reason. I play the game and can walk through stuff now. Replacing hard.dat fixes the problem. But, I'm clueless as to how it got to be that way. Especially since it happened to more than one DMOD.

Not sure how or why it happens myself, but it does happen for whatever reason. Copying hard.dat seems to be the only way to fix that.

Sounds like a vista problem. Too bad we don't have a category for that.

Life? What's that? Can I download it?! 
Don't blame Vista. It's that cursed Hard.dat that always screws up. You'll need to copy it from the dink folder and replace it over the corrupted one.
