im asking this as i dont remember who it was but i think now is the time that we get this adjusted back to having shandalar a link in the main page instead of the old non working magic custom and magic limited buttons under the world tag. Can this be done Gargaroz?
can I maze of ith your snowstorm?

It's in assembly still; and hand-coded assembly at that, so difficult to reverse-engineer. Otherwise I'd have fixed its irritating hijacking of Alt-F4 (normally a shortcut to close the program) long ago.

It was Jatill that coded/changed the shandalar button to switcher and was released in Manalink Update Dec 25 : Merry Christmas Update.

1) Switcher.exe is gone. Instead, there are now 2 separate versions that you can run directly (Magic.exe and MagicLimited.exe). Use one for constructed play and one for limited. If you want, you can also switch between the versions in-game through the ‘Switcher’ button. (Thanks to Snacko for answering lots of questions about dll’s, and Mathusalem for updating the art)
The main display page was done by Jatill,too:

If it is of any help in the post Differences between original Manalink and the actual one in development Gargaroz and Jatill are naming some things they changed and Jatill has listed his patch.text a scratchpad for various addresses that he needed to look up frequently.
viewtopic.php?f=56&t=5927
At the end of his patch.text he mentions:
switcher: 440f33 -> 120487e
Magic Limited.exe string: 1204904

Switcher was how he renamed the button of World = (shandalar) so it seems relevant.
