I will give it a shot this weekend, sure. I'm already looking at other files myself, specifically Potions.txt, which is similar to the idea of combining multiple mods, so I'll see if I can figure out what breaks it.

meta.lsx won't matter since that really just defines the starting screen and character creation screen. (It's an XML file, you can pop it open in Notepad and check it out.)

Rhidian was saying he was also having problems getting other files to work correctly besides ItemCombos, though in a different context in his case. I suspect the game is still just screwy about letting mods do what they're supposed to. frown
