    After reading all 4 pages I now have a headache, Mitch has done wonder's for RR and has made many tweaks and major updates to RR, I for one had many many problems resume/hibernate and a few other things which Mitch worked with me on via MSN and fixed and made available to all.

    Why people are getting hung up on the skin included in the installer is way beyond me, its just a skin if you dont like it dont use it and install one you like. I use DFX4 but I do not care what default skin gets laid down by the installer duh.

    Speaking of DFX4 John wake up and release your fix pack already! :P sorry had to get that in there

    well why not point to DFX as its the most used , in someways RR might be Dead if its not for DFX, DFX and RR go hand in hand.

    And no this is not me being *****y about johns work , how do you think i got started lol...
    just pointing the truth out.

    maybe it is time for a thread or something to discuss what goes into rr and what dos'nt from here on in. plugins as Enforcer has pointed out and done and add a plugins folder
    things like this should be discussed , and voted on . then all have agreed .

    but again not all will be happy but it will be a happy medium.

    Or maybe have two installers, one being just strictly RR and all req'd files(lite), and one that has the skin (full). This would only take an extra minute to do and would allow someone who actually researches before deciding to try rr to dl the basic and then go and dl which ever skin they want to take a stab at.
    Down the pipe there will be two installers.. the lite version you suggest, and a full version that allow users to select a base skin AND install plugins using my plugin database. Of course this isnt happening until the current iteration of the installer is more gracefully accepted. No real reason to add onto something until its used in the first place right

    I believe there's a release thread a page or two back (i think 10/08 is the latest released) There will soon be ANOTHER new release though so you might want to hold off. The new one has some pretty nice features and further cleans up RR's source.

    As for what the installer does i cant tell you ALL of what it does but i was the one that created the required file list and Mitch and i deciphered which of the required .dll files needed registering. The installer of course takes care of this as well. Movietimes and RRCam were later placed due to skin capability i believe but those should probably be optional. In any event i did testing on both computers with existing RR installations and completely new pcs and the installer has worked just fine in both instances. Trust me when i say alot of testing goes into this stuff before it shows up on mp3car.

    well for add to the next version, yes lets start to agree on this then , maybe any plugin added to rr should be optional ,

    as said before its a open source , lets treat as that, lets discuss how to move forward with rr, people have metioned way back in the forums here and there how rr is getting bloated , most of the time for the best .
    but as a few people here have started to make suggestion and progress to tidy up rr , its a very good chance to listen and agree or disagree and make 1 really good package for all and newcomers.

    brandensin, how about Dx7? what OS you on?

    also i dont really use RR at ALL, its the truth, despite all this nonsense, its still fun, i worked on it a bit some more today... but im prob close to done what needs to be done
    i just keep finding things that need to be done (that are easy to do)


    There are NO plugins installed, if you DONT install the CARWINGS skin, which is completely OPTIONAL.

    there WILL BE NO LITE INSTALLER, its pointless, i made this installer, with full options, you uncheck everything, you get very little... try it!

    I will post ANY NEW EXE as just a exe for people who want to drop it in...
    -Thanks

    I took SO MUCH bloat out of it now as it is... there is only 2 plugins and they are ONLY installed if you INSTALL Carwings, which is completly optional

    plugin #1 - movie times, to honor, my best source of info and tester (u know who you are)

    plugin #2 - RRCAM, why im not sure, we had some extra room, and i thought it was neat. It was close to getting nixed... but its surived

    One note to all, its not as open source as you think it is... i havent seen source since 11/2007, i dont even have the "CURRENT" source, ive never seen a GPL, or GNU on this... therefore the source is technically under Guino's control.

    now this is off topic
