Try adding the line

\typein[\modus]{Which Version (0, 1 or 2 only)?}

just before (or maybe just after) the \begin{document}. Won't  
guarantee that works though.

That should prompt you for a value on the console. Enter a 0, 1 or 2  
and return and the value of \modus should be set. Note: there is no  
value/range checking here so...

P.S. I really like your ``snip here'' lines: ===== 8>< =====!

Good Luck,
