Privateer 1 - Dralthi Patch, version 2

I already made a patch that allowed you to fly a Dralthi in Privateer. However, it only worked with the floppy version. While i still don't have Privateer 1 CD, in theory it should work with the CD version as well.

Unlike version 1, no original TRE files are modified.

This was put together in a bit of my spare time, as part of a project that consists on creating TRE files for patch distributing purposes.

Requirements

Privateer 1 Floppy Version + Righteous Fire add-on or Privateer CD

How to install the Patch

Floppy version

Make sure you have both Privateer 1 and the Righteous Fire add-on installed. After copying Dralthi.tre and Dralthi.prs to the Privateer directory, you must edit rf.cfg. This file should look something like this:

=prso.tre
=objects.tre
=gameflow.tre
=space.tre
=sound.tre
=midgames.tre
=speech.tre

Now you must add the file Dralthi.tre to the top of the list... It should look like the list below:

=dralthi.tre
=prso.tre
=objects.tre
=gameflow.tre
=space.tre
=sound.tre
=midgames.tre
=speech.tre

Finally, start RF and load the Dralthi savegame. To uninstall this patch, simply remove the line '=dralthi.tre' from the CFG file.

CD version

Follow the same generic steps as with the Floppy version. As i don't have the CD version, i don't know what files are present. If rf.cfg doesn't exist, check other CFG files. Then add the line '=dralthi.tre' at the top of the TRE list and run RF CD.

Since i don't have the CD version, i'd appreciate some feedback on if the patch works on P1 CD.
