Re: [FREQ]? or already in?
- I think with the HP stuff being changed that a version number was
going to be introduced. It's the second line now in the pcg file...
we should make sure that Jamis Buck is aware of this. Starting with
2.1.8 the second line of the pcg file will be
which will obviously change with each release. At this point, if it
doesn't have this line it will assume the HP are saved in the old
format, which is probably what Jamis does anyway. So maybe he doesn't
need to make a change.

> I'm fine with that, as there's really no way to do my improvements
(or any other changes to the save file), and have things work in all
versions. However, I don't think the versioning code is there - not
100% sure about that, but when looking into the file format, I don't
remember any version. This should probably be a high priority by
someone... Anyone want to pick it up, or should I dump in a FREQ? :)
I'd pick it up, but I'm busy enough as-is.
