    My reasons are similar to Sonicxtacy02,

    I'm not looking to charge for my plugins at present so that is not an issue.
    The way my new plugins are structured mean that I can't use the current CF installer app.

    Plus two of the reasons sonic mentioned the renaming of the plugins without the CF prefix and the delay in getting it out on the market.

    I'm sure the installer method can be addressed but if CF insist on no CF prefix they they will never be able to approve any of my plugins.

    Let me jump in here, the RR prefix and CF prefix were probably a result of both myself and Sonic (and some others) who do our plugins for both FE's (In fact I am looking to do my plugins for any FE where possible) and needed some way to distinguish between the different FE's.

    Because I program for both I tend to have both RR and CF installed on a CarPC for testing and because of this I had a plugin written for RR called wifiman would not work because CF already installed a dll called wifiman, thus I asked the developer to produce one that used a dll called RRWifiman. This illustrates the need for the prefixes.

    Now as CF is a business I don't expect them to think aboutnot stepping on other FE's feet, but I think it will also hampen their cause as there will be quite a few people using more than one FE, especially while they try to decide on which one they finally stick with. And it would be a shame if different FE's couldn't sit on the same PC without affecting the others.

    All my new plugins for CF, RR and standalone will come with a main processing DLL and the FE's DLL will mainly be bridge to the FE's engine. Therefore I need to prefix the FE's dll with CF or RR respectively.

    Aside from writing applications which utilize it I have no affiliation on mp3Car app mart. The app mart is Sean's (Optikalfx's) creation. I have no bias towards the market or app mart I simply use the one that makes less work for me. If you or anyone else is under the impression that i somehow make money from promoting mp3Car OR app mart you've got the wrong interpretation of what's going on. They take their 30% off all my application donations just like anyone else who uses the site. Perhaps if I only wrote apps for CF and didn't mind the other hurdles I'd consider using the CF Market.

    No, no..I'm sorry if I gave the impression that there was any financial interest involved. That absolutely was not my intent. As both you and Enforcer have pointed out, the Centrafuse Market is very specific with regards to the Centrafuse product, and isn't particularly user-friendly for developers that offer their apps to more than one front end. So while I might argue that it offers a better solution for delivering apps inside the Centrafuse ecosystem, it is not the ONLY way, nor does it represent the complete picture with regards to CF3.5-compatible applications.

    Sorry for the mis-understanding.
