    I've made some color tweaks to text.dat, it'd be great if Synchronet could read a file with just the changed lines in the mods directory, and read the rest from text.dat - that way people could change what they want without worrying about overwriting changes (or having to hand-hack the text.dat file)

    I've had the same thought. Whenever there's an updated text.dat, I have to carefully merge in the changes to my customized text.dat (I've been using WinMerge for this purpose).

    That's actually how the text.dat file already works. If you just blank out the lines you're not modifying, or add a '#' to the beginning of the line, then sbbs will use the default string value (hard-coded in sbbs.so/sbbs.dll) automatically. You can thank Deuce for that feature. :-)

    Now that you mention it, I seem to recall reading about that some time ago.. That's good to know. If I only include the lines I want to customize, that should make it easier to manage my text.dat.

    I was seriously going to suggest the same thing. I just couldn't come up with a good way to handle it. Maybe a custom_text.dat file or something that starts with line numbers and the the line that it's replacing? I honestly never looked into how text.dat was read or if line numbers change often or not. I just know I groaned when I saw the text.dat cvs update, because I'm going to have to go through and hand-merge it.
