DS no login patch

Docking Station demands you "log in" the instant you make a world. The servers have been down for years, so this is impossible.

I've gone considerably farther than most other 'login fix' mods:

Install by making a folder in Docking Station/Bootstrap called '099 DS Patches' and putting the COS files in there.
If you don't like the welcome screen, just leave out zzzzz_WELCOME.cos

Issues:

(feature) I want to code in tabbing between fields.
After a successful login, the welcome screen re-fires.


DS login reminder patch

You know that little 'click here to login, jerk!' popup that tells you to login when you're messing around the comm room? Or just trying to play?

...

Yeah, me neither :)

DS don't bug me to purchase patch

When Docking Station came out, it doubled as a weird kind of shareware advertisement for Creatures 3; if you didn't have C3 installed, every now and then this bigass magma norn would pop up and yell at you for a bit. It still does this. The Creature Labs website it implores you to go to no longer exists, of course- and sometimes even if you have C3 installed, it'll annoy you anyway.

Maybe someday later, I'll make a version that sends you to Good Old Games instead... or my PayPal account.

Break

When you press ctrl-shift-b, the engine will throw a non-fatal, but engine-freezing error. You can ignore the error and continue playing whenever you want. This is useful if you're trying to conserve CPU power; the in-game pause doesn't freeze the whole engine.
