This makes things a little more tidy, esp when numerous files have with them readme.txt files. I would request that you do this at least for the databases I provided because the readme.txt files do include copyright and such information in them that credit other sources for the files.

    Also a number of the Bible versions made by myself and others include a ???.bww file which you should have the installer put in the database directory because BW uses it to give Version ID info.
    Actually I prefer the opposite of what Michael suggests in his first paragraph. Whenever I unzip one of his files, I unzip it into the BW7 userdb folder, not into a separate folder. I always have to re-name his readme.txt files, but it's simple to do. The readme for Plato, for example, would be ptoreadme.txt. If Michael would rename his readme.txt files this way, then each new readme.txt wouldn't wipe out a previously-existing readme.txt file. When you unzip all the files into the same userdb folder when you use the BW user database compiler you can see all available .ddf files at a glance, rather than having to open a bunch of separate folders. So, you can't please all of us.
    Michael's note about .bww files is well taken.

    Default Readme files

    Okay then. If it's alright, I'll keep the files all together in the /userdb folder. I do prefer it that way myself and it would be less work for me in putting it all together.

    I'll have to re-download the readme files, but I'll have them there as well.

    Thanks,

    They post the text in PDF on the site with a 2-column formatting. This will take considerable time to convert unless I find a more compatible formatting. It won't make it for tomorrow, but I'll see if I can try for a later posting.


    By the way, I find the description of it quite amusing:
    "...The difference between the KJ3 Bible and all other English versions ever created in the past is this: This is the first time that any version has contained all of God’s words, as He wrote them..."

    Talking amusing description

    A similar description is used of the ESV and many other bible versions. Only our bible version is the real bible, don't you know?

    Default Delay

    Due to a major computer crash at the house, the progress was delayed a bit. Fortunately, everything is now in order and all the updates have been compiled and the files are being packed into the final installer as I type this message. All of the requested changes have been implemented (minus the request for the KJ3 Bible).

    Please note that this package now takes up 413MB of space when extracted. Please be aware of this as you download it!

    I was planning to create .BWW information files to each of the new books, but I just don't have the time right now. If somebody else would like to take this task upon themselves, please let me know and I can re-upload the installer with these files.

    Blessings,
