As Cody pointed out, there are lots of BAD dms files out there, and obviously created by a bad DMS program.
Did you guys never take the time to use the verify etc.. when creating DMS files?.
I personally have only seen a coupla 'bad' dms's in the past .. and when testing the dms file the output would say "r/w errors reported when creating
dms file", IE: the fool who created it didnt care to read the results outputted when creating so the end product was spread bad.
A bad workman always blames his tool(s). ;P
I personally used to love seeing the ascii msg's output ... the *hidden* msg's in the DMS were a fun part of the whole 'scene' thing.
I still delight in seeing GOOD ascii .nfo and .diz's from the olde (
) days to present days.
