        Yes it does - have you the latest version?

        It was taken out and added back so you may need to install 1.8.2+

        Aha! You are right! I think my version was a bit older. I have upgraded now and have the files.

        Thank you!

        The files are in the latest version. The whole format was removed in early versions of 1.8, but was returned after an "outcry".
