As stated earlier:

with dos files you get:


This gets read as

get_line(mob_f, line);
// line = "E\r"
if !str_cmp(line, "E")

The check above is NEVER true, because the E has a \r after it.
(this is in db.c, parse_enhanced_mob)

It's easier, and as Artovil pointed out, safer, to edit the files in a
text editor suited for the task. I use Ultraedit myself.
dos2unix is a shell command, and has been ported to cygwin. You should
be able to do it in the shell. If not check out the cygwin home page and
install it.
