I can see, and don't doubt, your observations. I asked you to confirm whether or not this is an artifact of the 2020-03 update. I doubt that it is, and suspect these files have had incorrect line endings since 2008-01.

I can fix all the files on the server rand re-build the complete.zip (without any need for pushing these through the Parts Tracker). But first I want to eliminate the possibuility that something strange happened with the 2020-03 build.

I will join the choir and say amazing work to everyone involved. I have tried to contribute this time, so I have a good idea of just how massive this piece of work is!

I have two questions regarding the content of some of the primitives:

1) How come "7-16ring1.dat" has been added with the same content as "7-16rin1.dat" instead of making one of these an alias to the other?

2) What is the point of the seemingly all new fast draw primitives in the /p/ directory which are aliases of quick-draw primitives in the /p/8/ directory? See "stu2-logo.dat" for an example of this.

I can confirm that 104.dat is missing the CR on the last line at least as far back as the 2013-01 complete.zip. (I don't have earlier copies of complete.zip.)

How many of these files are already corrected and present as updated files in the unofficial library?
If I check 2400.dat in the complete.zip it has a bad file ending, but the corrected/updated version is OK.

The following files need renaming:

94725.dat - Figure Friends Accessories Bow with Heart

to

Figure Friends Hair Decoration, Bow with Heart with Pin

Thats a mistake. We have abandoned the 8.3 filenames.
New ring primitives should use the whole word "ring" in their name. But we chose to not rename old ri-, rin-primitives.
Anyone uploading new ring primitives need to check if there already is an old file using ri or rin.

2)
To fool hardcoded requirements in MLCad.
Any primitive beginning with the word "stud", like studXXX.dat needs to have a corresponding stu2XXX.dat in the same p-folder.
But since we have the lo-res library now, p/8, we now need to make any stu2XXX.dat file a Move to - p/8 folder.

Updated and fast-tracked. This could have been avoided if you had mentioned it when you Certify voted :-)

Thanks. That MLCad requirement is pretty wild. But I'm glad that you are still accounting for there!

I already blamed myself the whole day for not doing it - it wasn't necessary that you even turned the knife :-)
