    Sure, just give that directory a flag. Then do not give the flag to anyone. If for some reason this does not work, then with a little more work you can assign a flag to the directory and have your mod give the user the flag when they run it and take it away when they exit the mod.

    Maybe with a FLAG...

    Use ARS to make the file directory invisible to everyone who does not have the flag.. Set the flag ON when entering your BAJA mod, and set it OFF again when leaving. In case someone D/C in the middle of the mod, you probably nead a sort of watch-dog routine running at login (logon?) time, to make sure the flag is OFF for everyone who logs in (on).

    I was wondering about a D/C.... That shouldn't be hard to write either. <G> Beta
