Where in any of the posts for this topic, preceeding yours, is a hash table even mentioned?
This uses a ini file, not a hash table.
Didn't read the prices.ini, nonetheless, still wouldn't make that much of a difference.
Anyways if you use hashtable, I would be most happy to give you a script reading it versus using ini's.
This has been said more than once already.
No harm in saying it twice.
