Searched over and over, but where is Ryan's WMP 10?

Post by Amiga » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:41 pm

Okay, before anyone states to do a search, I have.

:shock: Where did Ryan's WMP 10 addon go? I know the eventual goal was to have boooggy maintain a WMP addon, but I can't find any post stating Ryan abandoned his WMP 10 addon. I know Ryan doesn't have a ton of time, so I'm not bashing him in any way. I haven't been in the loop because I have been waiting for 2.2.1 to be released.

Maybe the download page should reflect abandoned addons?

Let me stress this again, I realize Ryan has limited time and has helped many of us.

:idea: After reading that link, it looks like I am not the only one looking for Ryan's addons that have been abandoned/removed. Maybe Ryan should post their titles back on the download page and place in bold, perhaps in red, that certain addons are no longer available. I think a lot of us got out of the loop waiting for the next update pack to be released.

If you do still want WMP10 despite it being outdated and forcing you to reinstall some hotfixes, but simply can't find it anywhere, I still have 3.1a lying around (a friend of mine absolutely loathes WMP11. I agree with him, but then I don't really use any version of WMP)

Ryan does mention that his addon will no longer be updated in the WMP10 addon thread. It's still available on the tracker.

Not to start a pissing contest, but trying to find that thread is next to impossible through the search function. In addition, the first message has not been updated in that thread.

The bottom line is that many people haven't visited the forums in several months because of the length of time between the update packs. People got used to downloading Ryan's addons from the download page and puff they are gone. It isn't a big deal, but I have been reading others looking for Ryan's old stuff. We know Ryan can't maintain everything, but a message (maybe the word DISCONTINUED) on that page on what happened to his old stuff wouldn't hurt either.

Fair enough. I didn't find the thread through search; I keep shortcuts to the release threads of the addons I've used, including that one.
