Ok, I'm getting dizzy clicking links form this to that thread and now i'm here...and then there is another link...WTF? Make up your mind E!
Man...look at all this dicussion, I could hear a pin drop in this thread..
Yeah, guess no one has an opinion then.
Being a Noob + non english speaking, I think standardisation of plugin is great idea.
In each tutos, I would explain how to set up the plugin for most used skins (eg LSXVoid, DigitalFX,etc ...)
Also since you have so many international users on this web, maybe find someone for most common languages to make a translation of those tutos.
well i agree with all you said in the locked thread with the exception of needing all plugins installed in road runner\plugins. It'll take all of 2 mins to add "pluginspath" to RR's source just like i did for "backgroundpath". I could even put "road runner\plugins" as the default, but allowing people to define where there plugin path is will add to the customization RR is all about
I don't see why you would either want plugins installed all over the place, or not in a standard place.
I agree customisation is good but why have where plugins go be customisable. If they are all in one place then when it comes to installing a plugin everyone (especially the n00bs) will know where it goes.
I also think backgrounds should have a fixed place ie Road Runner\Backgrounds\,
again you don't want every skin installing backgrounds all over the place.
we have to strike the right balance between customisable and usability.
I have to agree with E on this as well. To make something standard, means to set in stone not allow to be customized as that would defeat the whole purpose of have a set location for all the plugin's to be placed at in the first place... :confused:
i agree with what you all said. now lets do it!!
