How to Use shivaEngine

Just place the shivaengine.vpt AND the shivaengine.vps in the same folder.
shivaEngine uses a external file to run the table, instead of a built in script in the table editor.
The call to the external file is (useing build 1_8 as a example):

ExecuteGlobal CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile("shivaengine1_8a.vps", 1).ReadAll
