I released a new version of WinQuake today. You can down load the beta
release here:

Here's what's new in this release:

I fixed a bug in how WQ saves data in the new PSN format. The spec says to
save two CRC (a way of checking the validity of data) bytes at the end of
the file even if the CRC is not calculated. SDR, while not calculating the
CRC, did save the two bytes at the end of the file and set the NO_CRC flag
in the header section. When WQ updated the file, it would set the CRC flag
but not write out the two bytes at the end of the file. Since older beta
release did use the CRC bytes it wasn't a problem. This release calculates
and saves the CRC bytes when saving the event file and if the NO_CRC flag is
clear, it will test the CRC when reading in an event file. If the calculated
CRC does not match the CRC bytes in the file you will get an error message.

Since people are sending in event files in the new format I created a simple
program to check all of the event files on my system to see if they are two
bytes short. If an event file was short the program would append two bytes
to the end of the file. If you are sending in event files in the new format
please upgrade to this release before sending anymore in.

This release has a new dialog box that displays the RMS (Root Means Square),
minimum, maximum and mean of the viewed data. This dialog box can be opened
by using the Calculate and RMS / Max / Min menu items.

Thanks it.
