Yes, it probably wasn't the smartest thing to do. I only modified three characters in the description line - I saw no harm in it. The byte size of the file remained the same. I really do not know whether this was the cause of the test failure - neither did Cobb by the e-mail I got from Josh. Either way, I feel kind of stupid for trying ... I'm no programmer.

If you really want to edit the map file, at least use a hex editor to properly edit the binary file... a "programmer's editor" such as UltraEdit might work.
