:whistling: Never noticed that copy, thanks again 10th. :cheers:
Rechecking that problem and fixing it for future installs.
Nice to see after some time. :coolthumb:

Yeah, I am still lurking from time to time.

But for fixing that for future installs you have to keep in mind that there is another creature in that copy folder.

Breagar NPC: Change-log reveals that Revised Battles "???overwrites???" Master Brain (UDMASTER.CRE) removing Sapphire (ACSTONE2.ITM) from inventory and Uldar NPC overwrites Kuo-Toa Prince (UDPRINCE.CRE) removing Emerald (ACSTONE1.ITM) from inventory.

From RevisedBattles.TP2:

I don't understand why ADD_CRE_ITEM overwrites Inventory 1 aka Sapphire (ACSTONE2.ITM).

You have to look deeper ^^

A few rows above that you have this:
COPY ~RevisedBattles/brain/cre~			~override~

And if you open that folder you will notice that there is an udmaster.cre which will destructively overwrite any changes before it, and which will then get patched by the few lines you posted...
