Upcomming installer updates & improvements

Unread post by Phoenix » 18 Aug 2008, 21:45

Hi All,

Since the new NSIS Version (2.39): http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page
nsis_logo.jpg
nsis_logo.jpg (7.33 KiB) Viewed 2000 times
And the new beta of the UMUI addon for NSIS (v1.00b2): http://nsis.sourceforge.net/UltraModern ... on_Changes

And my inspiration from the Winamp installer to 'direct download' additional files:
winamp_direct_download.png
we can use this for 'Xpadder Help files' and 'Xpadder Joystick skins' as an optional 'direct download' implemented the new ecc installer...stay tuned!

Just please don't make one thing, an allready clicked not needed add-on. I use Winamp too and i hate these installers with toolbar and plugin shi*. If you do one click to fast you got software which is never needed.
Nothing that looks like a signature.

Hi Blackerking,

Don't worry, it's not software to add banners or bars :lmfao: , it's all ECC related :thumb:

Phew :sweatdrop: after more than:

- 8 hours off puzzling with all (not so well doumented) options (wich could be very frustrating)
- visited more than 30 sites for help and explanation
- and more than 60 compile's to test, adjust, test, adjust, test, adjust....

the installer is getting closer to be ready ;-)

Here i a screen shot wich you can select to download extra options, that are not shipped with the installer:

Hm, hope that there are only 2 pages. I think, the options should be as small as possible because these are only additional files not really needed for emuControlCenter. Do you really think, that the people using emuControlCenter need this things?

Yo, it's optional, most common functions have the option enabled by deafult (see screens) this will also decrease the installer size, eventually there will be 3 pages with additional downloads, and a button to skip all of these ;)

Hey, i have another idea, i make an seperate installer for this (exe) so i can place it in the tools folder and call it: eccExtraDL.exe so the user can run this to download these extras :swing:

So the installer remains simple...;)
