I'm not aware of a wzoneecho command for DG Scripts.

Well, \r\n IS a linefeed, so what else would you want?

Oh, you do that in your client, you turn on the option for local echo so
that it would end up looking like this...

<500h/500H 500m/500M 500v/500V> look
[ 1220] A Hall Way

The linefeed actually comes from the linefeed echoed from the client.

Okay, so where in this mess do you want the linefeed?  if you want the
linefeed at the end then just add the \r\n after the point in
make_prompt where the battle prompt is added in, otherwise put the \r\n
whereever you want it.
