v0 Anniversary Edition Absolute Zero

released 2007.11.28

Initial release of original, script-based AE (.bat on Windows, .sh on Mac).

First attempt at making a separate GameDataFolder for the AE. On Mac, original GDF contents were moved to GameDataFolderZero on Mac due to GDF-remembering feature in OmniGroup Oni build.

Simply globalized ONCCs, TRAMs, and SNDDs using early version of OniSplit by Neo.
