Max Number of Add-on Packs

Post by PoNi » Wed Mar 29, 2006 3:32 pm

Is there a max number of addon Pack's?

I have 25 different addon packs that I integrate into my source usint the latest 2.0.4pack and the integrator v1.2.2. It seems like some of them are not showing up after running a unattended install?

Am I missing something?

some packs dont seem to be compatible when integrated together

for example ktt_firefox stops various other packs showing up fully including kels uberpack, so i do a 2 stage run- integrate the firefox addin and roguespears older 2.1.7 addon pack, then a second run with all the other stuff i want.

I have noticed the need to break up integrations because of minor ummmm conflicts created when I do all of them at the same time...

I also have seen the same.... cant get all the packs to integrate together..

Anyway to tell which pack stops what in the logs? Or is it just guess and check?

In what order are addons installed? Is it the file name?
Can I rename them to make them install in a specific order (like, 1.1-RVM, 1.2-dotnet, 2.1-lclock.....)?

It depends on the way the addon is made. They are extracted alphabetically to the destination. Then the integrator reads the entries.ini file. Next it reads all of the other entrie*.ini files alphabetically and integrates whatever the entry files state. If an inf file is used for installation then things can get more complicated from there. It all depends on how the addon is made.

Don't forget that it only takes one buggy addon to break everything. sysoc.inf is very fragile and doesn't handle bad INFs well at all.

Finally someone agrees with the stuff I've said in the past, that there needs to be a priority something in the integrater (one by 1).

I've posted before steps to prevent this complications all over the forum, just look for them, ppl used to call me crazy when ever I said those things...
FYI GUNDAM SEED Destiny DVD 3-4 ARE COMING OUT SOON!!! Scratch that its out....
