This is what I do now that I've discovered that trick. I wish that I would
have known about it back when I did the 128 bit conversion... *sigh*

Oh well. Live and learn. :)

I'm thinking about writing a routine that will save all .zon .wld .obj and
.mob files from memory to disk.... That way you don't have to go through the
tedious process of doing a 'Xedit save XX' 4 times for each zone.

Has anyone attempted/done this or something similar. I love it when others
warn me of horrid pitfalls before I get to them, but sometimes half the
coding fun is climbing back out, brushing off, and continuing with the
coding. :)
