Okay, Hollow tried to contact Merlin about this issue a few months ago and Toad tried again on Wednesday but I think Merlin is one foot out the door so to speak. Dead end there.
I'll see if I can get a hold of mind. Until then if anyone has any other versions of WCS they need patched (I've had a request to do 1.8.6 for Win and Linux today) just let me know here or in PM and I'll put those up.
BB / Merlin has had a number of personal and stressful issues to deal with.
It's been so long I've basically forgotten how to work lcc to recompile WCS, KM talked me through it last time on MSN, a conversation who's logfile vanished when things got shifted to Skype.
I might add I'm personally aware of another buffer overflow in WCS, which I inadvertently crashed my own room because of.
Life here is still nuts, still stressful and I'm not sure if / when I'll get round to seeing if I can work that damned compiler. Assuming it'll even run under Win 10.
