    chuck ,
    if u dont want a plugin to load on some skins and load on others
    i wouldnt call that a global plugin!!!
    a good global plugin is say

    MJS UAS
    or
    SKINTOOL

    here is what the output of debug.txt looks like now

    here is a snip of plugins loading

    Code:
    1/8/2009 4:09:16 PM: Plugin Manager: loading Global Plugins...
    1/8/2009 4:09:16 PM: Plugin Manager: RRMJSUAS(.NET) plugin found.

    I still think there should be an option to turn it off in the Skin.ini file so the skinners can have time to catch-up with it.

    AUTOLOADPLUGINS=True/False

    Another suggestion:
    At the moment you can just specify a list of screens to be preloaded when RoadRunner starts. It'd be nice if screens would also be preloaded when switching skins. Of course this should happen in the background. Or if that's not possible: preload screens of day AND night skin at RoadRunner startup (with a command like PRELOADNIGHT=1)

    I'm asking because I preload screens of my day skin for faster access. But when I switch to the night skin the screen changes are slower because the screens of the night skin are just loaded at first access. It's not much, but still somewhat annoying. That's why I stopped using two skins.

    Yes I am interested in working with you on this – don’t know how I could help but I can test and make suggestions.

    I guess I started this because I just can not run all the plugins at the same time in my truck because it takes too much power. So I made a simple menu to turn them on and off as need and a way to know if the plugin was on or off when I started them.

    “RRUPD8”,”BYIND;RRUPD8;PLUGINMENU<<NEWRRUPD8”
    “NEWRRUPD8”,” RRUPD8”


    So if a plugin was not on -or in the Plugins.txt file- the plugin menu will pop-up to let you know.

    With the new way my $hit will not work no more unless you do not put the plugins in the "SKINPATH/Plugins/" or "Road Runner/Plugins/" witch is no big deal but if I wanted to release my new skin then everyone who uses it would have trouble.

    And I am sure other skins are in the same boat with the Plugins.txt file method so thats why I suggested AUTOLOADPLUGINS=True/False in the Skin.ini file.

    Seeing as you are using that as an example, I take it the indicator works

    Well the next updates for RRGas, RRStopwatch, RRPetrol, RRGrid will all have the indicator, if they don't already.

    Assuming an update is needed.

    And the fact that you use "your" for "you're" further justifies the question.
