So, Lucifer's Playground will be the suite (and the "main skin folder"), and in it you have various subdivisions aka individual skins (i.e. the subfolders of the main folder). All skins in the suite will share the same @Resources folder, meaning that it will be at the same folder level as the individual skins in the suite:
Code: Select all
Skins --- Lucifer's Playground -+- @Resources | +- Credits | +- Iris | +- ... | ...
Actually I have been unsuccessfully playing with ways to do this, and kept overwriting the Main folder, Obviously there is no advantage to this at the moment (there are no resources for skins to share..... yet), but wanted it solved in principle before writing a lot of code, then find that would need rewriting.
I will have a quick play with that first before I actually start coding.
On that, I decided I might as well jump in at the deep end and go for it, rather that consume time on something purely experimental. That said, all the graphics etc will be basic (crap) initially... Unless I happen to have one done, as its still experimental, so I will focus on the structure and everything will hopefully be as it will in the final product... If it works LOL. So many ideas and variables in my head.
I did work out how I could, make each as a separate skin, then use the dreaded VBS and/or Batch files to put it where I wanted it using x-copy or robocopy without overwriting the main directory. But was hoping not to have to use that, but it was an "At least I know a working Solution" If all else fails.... But as usual you solved my problem, well subject to testing, but by now I have no reason to doubt you.
Thanks again for that.
As I have many unspoken variables bouncing around in my head, I may ask you some, "strange" questions that may "Look" irrelevant. But I hope you will trust me enough by now, to know that I would not waste your time (or mine), IF I did not think there was a point in asking them.... That said I am managing to find more stuff in the manual, and forum now.
I think at first it all looks like it may as well have been Chinese, and that was a bit off putting, now as I understand more in the first place, it makes it easier to find what I want, and get to the key parts.
Speak soon, I at least think this will result in something very cool, but time will tell.
