Making your own chm file:

You think I'm too slack! You want to create your own GameRulings.chm but don't know how. How about I let you in on the trick.
1. Download PowerChm
2. Download Instructions
3. Download my version of GameRulings.chm
4. I always use D'Angelo's latest Rulings Summaries, and download the Zip of HTML
5. Open up the rules-general.html, then View>Source. Edit away, then save.
6. Recompile using Instructions.
7. Copy GameRulings.chm to data folder of magic workstation.

Maitai, you lost me when you got to "and edit away".
