Re: LANGAUTO.CLEAR not working in .MOD of a race
- Since it's a 'load timing' problem, could we make loading a two-step
process? Whether by physical file, or by internal processing could
PCGen be changed to first load and process standard tags, then load
and process .MOD tags?
That seems a more eligant and long term solution than testing every
single tag, in all the .lst files. Then you'd have to worry about it
every time someone added a tag or created a new type of .lst file.
But then again, since I don't know how you folks parse through this
stuff, it may be unrealistic to process some and hold others until

- Second that Motion.... Bye bye to all required tags? What is it going to
take to get this installed? I'll put in the no sleep to change the lst
files although I know Space Monkey's scripts will do the huge chunk of it.

Please Bryan, please... can we add TAG name to the required fields and solve
this problem once and for all?
