Spotted this in the downloads section, with no actual description.

What does this patch do?

My thoughts were Digital Anvil Library...
Was it something to solve the Windows 10 issue with directplay not being enabled by default? That's just a tickbox away usually...

I would love to have some more Info about this "Patch" as well.
Since SOME of my players running under WIN 10 experienced random crashs (client-side only) lately...
So maybe this DALib helps ???

Greetings

It ignores CriticalWarningFn if it hasn't been set. The critical warning occurs when DirectSound or DirectPlay fail to initialize.

Thank you @adoxa for clearings things up.

So its just a "fix" for singleplayer-issues.
I guess it wouldn´t be very helpful to ignore/skip those warnings in a Multiplayer-Mod since directplay is needed to connect with a multiplayer-server...
