    Ok, I'm rebuilding the Updater, using a different format so I can adjust the text size, etc. It's working so far, but as this whole thing is a first for me, I'm a bit slow... but I'm getting it, this is my way to learn . The new font will be 2 larger and bold. Think that will work? Let me know... peace... W3bMa5t3r

    Created a second version of the Updater for those who wish to embed the Updater in their skins. The text in the program is ALOT larger and is NOT suited for normal usage. Check the first post.

    What about the skins???

    Maybe this is getting too far off base, but what about including a few more skins? Liquid Smokes and Chucks and a few others that are actively being updated could be integrated selectively with the install. Save a lot of searching thru forums if the installer took care of the ini settings and file locations at least for an initial install.

    As a newbie I would have been flat floored with Road Runner if the default install installed several working and awesome skins... My experience was error/search new error/search until I got it working...

    Maybe not really include the skins in the installer (it would make it incredibly big), but give an option to download some skins automatically and install them (perhaps with a little preview for each). New users do tend to get a bit lost installing skins. But I would probably think less of the software if I had to download an installshield of 70Mb+.

    Another way out would be to Have various installs for each skin, and just have those available for the user to download with the desired skin.

    Considering the current install is approaching 23Mbs already.. this makes much more sense and I think I can handle it I'll build a seperate installer, giving you a preview of the skins, letting you choose which to install, download those skins and then install them... and either performing the basic config, or telling you exactly what to do.

    Any suggestions on which skins to option? Let's aim for no more than 10 skins... So people... which (up to) 10 skins should we install for the newbies?? Give me 10 skins in a list
