    Default Great Stuff

    Fantastic Program. It worked great...Java opens another door in options for userdb compiles.

    Thanks for you hard work and for sharing it with the rest of us.

    Default

    Technically it does not matter.

    I chose to save them in my userdb directory under Bible Works 6 (5 or 4).

    When I exectuted the nwt.jar I also chose to save the file it creates in the userdb directory as nwt.txt.

    For me it is easier to keep track of things if they are all in the same place.

    Hope this helps.

    Default So, Joe....

    I feel as if I'm tuning in at the very end of "The Sixth Sense."

    You're all jazzed about the addition to BW of... a cultic per-version? Or is this another NWT? Or are you jazzed about the technology that makes it available.

    Clue me!

    Default both

    Two things:

    1. I am jazzed about the technology that produced this module. It is very nice and smooth.

    2. It is very helpful when formulating a response to a JW (which I agree is a cult) to be able to see in parallel what their "bible" says in a certain passage. Compare their inaccurate translation of John 1:1 with their accurate translation of John 20:28.


    Personally, I would not be thrilled if BibleWorks started including things like the Koran, NWT and other items as such in the program. However, these are helpful user created modules that do serve a purpose especially in the area of Apologetics.

    Default NWT download program

    I've released V1.3 of the program to fix the NWT problem.

    The key to getting me to fix any bugs and problems is to hound me mercilessly until I comply.

    Is there an available Amplified DDF? If not (and using other DDF files as examples), how should it be formatted (version 5000 or 5002, hasnotes no or yes, hasendnotes no or yes, etc...)? How should the following be edited:

    Default Amp

    Hmm... I wonder if I actually finished the AMP or not. You'd better give it a bit of a look over once you get it installed to see if it looks ok.

    BTW, V1.3 was a dud. Get V1.4.

    As for the DDF, use "End Notes" , "Has X-Refs". I think that's all. Do some experimentation if anything looks wierd.
