  • Do you want a full installer ?

    Just wondering if anyone would like me to make a RR full installer ? This would install everything including winamp 2.95 so all you need to do is point it to your music \ video folders.

    Good idea! This will be very handy for newbee's!
    Maybe the package can be more complete, like adding Destinator, and N64 emulator + some games. I still don't know how to add the games

      I defenitely think a full install would be a great idea because it would simplify installation. Being a noob myself, I am still trying to configure RR the way I like it and am constantly finding little things that I need to adjust accordingly because some parts were peice-mealed together when I first downloaded the program. Looks like Guino just released a new version that is packed with new features too. Maybe you could even include a copy of your skin too, CDRSkull, as it seems pretty popular and I like it myself.

        No, the full installer should only include the basic stuff like Winamp 2.95, VB runtime library, RR and the default BMV2 skin. Anyone who wants to add more stuff can do it later. No one needs a bloated system with features they'll never use.

          Why not? Have the user have the option of "full install (everything, codecs, apps, etc), limited (winamp, rr) or custom (checklist type install).

                YES! Personally, i think that would be great....my dream is that one day it will also include an ibus version (for bmw...since it's working correctly)...that can also be checked in the installer. It should also ask "Would you like Roadrunner to start with windows?" <---- one less step is always better imo.

                      should even include a bunch of skins.. from my limited experience with RR, it seems such a pain in the *** to manually install the skins.. :dunno:

                        I am very much a noob but been around reading diligently for the past few weeks and think it would be a great idea as long as it would not hinder performance. But a check box install option would solve that! Hope you make it!

                          i think a "FULL" installer would be awesome. And when i say full i mean "FULL" including all the latest "COMPLETE" skins. With options in the installer for;

                          minimal: just install latest ver of RR
                          complete: install RR and winamp
                          extras: install any RR plugins
                          skins: choice to install which skins from list of complete available
                          full: install everything
                          full upgrade: only install latest ver of components allready present

                          that should take care of everything.
                          if the installer was small and linked to components online that would be great too(think windows update, or online update"

                          If that is too much, for one installer, maybe seperate installers for differnt things. like an installer just for skins etc.
                          If you dont mind me asking, how are you making the installer? I would like to package my skin like this.

                              to expand on my post a little more, with the assumtion it would be implemented that way.

                              For skin developers, each skin would have its own self contained installer, and each skin dev would be responsible for getting there skin included in the list of available skins to install. I imagine the main installer could look to a dir online and basicly list every individual installer listed (dir only for skins). Then download each skin and install one by one.
                              Same for other options in the installer.
