Could somebody post the full steps I need to take, all in one place, so that I can get all broken and secret walls to be really obvious? Also is there any way to get spiders to always be perfectly visible?

You should consider to be a bit less unfriendly. Otherwise nobody will reply to your questions...

Which operating system do you use?

I don't have any more mod points to mod this post down, but it deserves it.

Download the attached file from here (Cheat!.zip) and extract it to the "Bitmaps" folder in DROD's data directory. On Windows, I believe the default location is "C:\ProgramData\Caravel\drod-5_0\." I'm not sure about other operating systems.

This will create two files in the "Bitmaps" folder: "Cheat!.png" and "Cheat!.tim." "Cheat!.png" contains the graphical mod and "Cheat!.tim" tells the engine which specific tiles to replace.

Next, go up one level to the main data directory and locate "drod.ini." You can open this file with any text editor (e.g. notepad on Windows). Under the "[Graphics]" heading, you will see, among other things, a line in the format StyleName=StyleName for each room style you have installed. Simply append ";Cheat!" to the end of each of these lines. (For example, "Aboveground=Aboveground" will become "Aboveground=Aboveground;Cheat!") Save and close drod.ini.

Now when you start DROD, all broken and secret walls should be replaced with more visible tiles.

The only way to make spiders permanently visible is to enable Puzzle Mode. You can do this at any time by pressing F3.

Wow, -25? seriously?

There must be some kid* running around here with way too many negative mod points.

The best way to lose customers is to let kids running around your forums with loaded guns (or too many mod points).

Mike, Schik, for that kid's own sake, please remove all of his mod points, preferably before he mods down your customers.

*)We all know who he is, but I'd rather not name it.

Did negative karma ever serve some useful purpose, other than generating acrimony?

It depends on the receiver. Back in the day when I was a kiddo I got negative karma a few times and each time I learnt my lesson.

And I am pretty sure I am not the only one.

Ugh. Clicking upvote 25 times is so boring.

...so I stopped short. Oh well.

I really don't care. Thank you, anyway :)

However I believe this is a feature for cowards and should be removed. If you don't like other people's posts tell them in public or in a mail.

Best wishes,

'For cowards'? What about people with mild visual difficulties?

Or sick of eyestrain looking?

I think that it serves a real purpose - and that people can and do use it for that purpose. For example, what if I made an idiotic post and someone replied with the post "No, you're an idiot." I think I'd actually prefer the mod down because
- It has (imaginary internet point) consequences, encouraging me to be a better person.
- It gives me just as much information as the reply.

I really don't care who thinks I'm wrong - and it's a quick way of giving feedback that doesn't derail threads. For example, I think Tim's post was out of line (and I'm surprised - he usually has better grammar :P). Would it have helped if I posted "Tim, that was out of line."? Probably not; we'd just discuss it more. A mod down accomplishes the same goal. And nobody wants a flame war.

And, more facetiously, why should cowards be unable to express themselves?
