PKZIP is stupid.   It doesn't unzip empty directories, including the player
object directories.  You gotta go to your circle~1\lib\plrobjs directory
and create the following directories:

The order you make these 6 directories doesn't matter of course.

You can add Oasis OLC patch pretty easy.  Allthough C++ doesn't have a 
patch command, or I don't know about it, you can just look at the 
actual patch files.  People have mentioned bugs with the OLC, but I 
haven't seen any yet.  (I haven't used the medit and zedit much either, 
which is the part that is supposed to be the most bugged)

Actually, I found giving more variables to the player records is pretty 
easy.  I don't know how it works, but the program must store the records
no matter what the hell you keep adding to them.  Adding fields to 
objects on the other hand, I found harder because you have to mess around 
with the way the program reads in the object files and how it saves the 
objects later.  The only problem you might run into with adding fields to 
the player files will be that you have to delete the player base.  But if 
you have no players that's not a problem!  :)

I can't really help here except to offer some Beavis and Butthead jokes 
about 'log' and 'dump'.  Heh, he said dump.

No clue.  I'm a pretty aweful coder.
