    Default Dungeon Keeper Color Changer

    Dungeon Keeper Color Changer 0.91

    Change Dungeon Keeper's player color order.

    There is a command line and gui application available.
    Place them in your base Dungeon Keeper directory.

    Make sure you have a full install.
    This includes the data and ldata directories.
    These folders and their files need to be writable.

    Thanks to Mefistotelis, DragonsLover, and Jon Skeet for
    code and file specifications that made this possible.

    Could you make this work with Keeper FX version?

    Also does it replace colors or switches position like Keeper FX does? I'm curious if your tool can let us play like Yellow Keeper on custom campaigns ( Keeper FX doesn't allow us to do so since both Keepers should be placed on the map before the switch can take place ).

    This program switches out the graphics in the data files and patches the executable data where needed. The player numbers do not change.
    You still always play as the keeper you normally would, but the colors themselves change.
    I originally intended to support KeeperFX. I'm not sure why I didn't. I suppose I figured that, in time, KeeperFX would support this functionality natively.
    Plus, KeeperFX is in constant flux and this can pose trouble for binary patching. I'm not sure what the issue was.

    I've been thinking about coming back to the project and rewriting it yet again. It has been sort of an on-going project for me while learning programming.
    This iteration was a bit frustrating and, at the time, I was just glad to be done with it. I was certainly not satisfied with the outcome.
    I may pick it up again with what I have learned since.
