  Ok I am patching in the OasisOLC 1.5 by hand.. so far so good, I am
having some difficulty with the AScii PFILE mod. Seems I cannot see anyone
logged in unles I look at the sockets connected. It also wreaks havok with
the race.c from the modified patched 1.1 src tree..

Anyone have any ideas how to make this entire system work from raw text
based pfiles and plrobj files??
