Haha...yes, that works better. I can now see what GoldBoxFan was doing with the Buck Rogers items. Still trying to figure out what the point of a medic or any of the classes other than warrior is...oh, well.

Hmmm...any item editors that run under DOS? Those should run from DOSBOX, right?

Have you tried using Brett Ladd's Item Editor?

So I downloaded 'Service Pack 6 for Visual Basic 6.0: Run-Time Redistribution Pack (vbrun60sp6.exe)', using the option to install in compatibility mode, and now I am able to install FRUA98 and HackCKIT. HackCKIT appears to load; FRUA98 loads but the item records are empty. (1 out of 2, I guess?)

I have Windows 8.1 and have been using FRUA98 quite a bit.  It works fine for me, whereas many of the art hacking proggies I use need to be run through DosBox.

Not only does that look VERY nice, but for DC it looks something easy to animate; if it's a small-pic, and not a wall tile, that is.

It seems I will be a bit late with my work but now I need just to finish dragon sprites and walls :) also I have done some Bryce renders and I think I will do more and include them in the mod. Here is how it looks like though without postwork...

Some other classics are 'PEBCAK' (problem exists between computer and keyboard') or 'level 8' failure (levels 1-7 being the various technical factors).

That said you're far from the first or last person to make unforced errors while using computers. ;) I remember how many times I couldn't figure out why I couldn't see my flash drive, only to realize I hadn't plugged it in. On a Gold Box note, I mistakenly removed the same character multiple times, trying to guess the filename to overwrite and getting it wrong each time. I was ready to give up and overwrite the disk, and then I realized he had a longsword + 4.

Why would the "Level up" button on the Level up dialog be ghosted in GBC for a character that is ready to level up?

GBC v2.34
(GOG) Curse of the Azure Bonds v1.3

With spellcasting classes you need to pick a spell from the spell list first.

If that's not the case, can you send me a save file?

Ugh!  Yes, That's it.  UHD -> User Head Space,  UBD -> User Brain Death.   I appreciate the response!

Thanks a bunch!
