How to make an addon

Recommended Posts

Guest Ti0n3r

I'll ask here instead if starting a new thread. So;

Does anyone have a working mirror for TexView? The one on Flashpoint1985.com seems to be dead. I have also tried google, with no luck. icon11.gif

.paa has transparancy capability and .pac does not

I'm having problems with my old version Paintshop Pro,I even download new trial and both quit out upon startup on both computers I try it on.

Anyone have Gimp compiled already,I'd like to try that.

Well, both have. But .pac supports only 2bit transparency, means completely visible or completely invisible, while you can set up several greyscales in .paa.

K thats some info I didn't know much about.

Using O2..a .GIF will convert to .PAC and a .TGA will convert to .PAA

Install.exe -> Next -> Next -> 'Read some thing about license' -> Next -> Next -> Wait -> Wait -> Finish...

It worked like that for me last time I used/installed GIMP...

Hey...I've got a quick question. How long should one wait for permission before releasing someone else's modified addon? I think that the person might have left the community, and I was curious if two weeks with no reply was enough of a grace period.

Thanks in advance!

If you can't get a hold of them for more than a few weeks just make sure to credit them in the read-me, IMO.

Should have been asked in this topic really:

http://www.flashpoint1985.com/cgi-bin....0;st=75

If you want my opinion....

The maker owns it forever (by law so many years after his death)

If you are rereleasing someones addon.You really should try the email for 30 days thing.

If you know he's outta addonmaking, its hard to say.They could come back,come back for ARMA even

Read the fine print, alot of addonmakers specify that you can use if as long as you give proper credits.

Alot of the times an addon is made using several peoples work and permission is not always possible

What if...you rerelease someones uh60 chopper and turn it into a medevac or such.Come to find out he was working on one for the past years and planned on releasing one ?

What if... you rerelease someones addon and he didn't own parts of it ?

Permission and credits for peoples work don't always get passed down

Best thing is...just to make you own addon,its not that hard

dont exceed 5k for ofp

that could be limit for good decent looking soldier

invest more attention into textures instead of modeling each gear part

Fair enough. I just assumed that it was for the whole company who stole addons issue.

30 days. Fair enough. If he comes back and says we can't use it, I'd have no problem asking for it to be pulled down.

Quote[/b] ]Permission and credits for peoples work don't always get passed down

I'd be sure to pass credit to the original addonmaker, and anyone he listed in his readme as well. Anyone beyond that I can't really be held responsible for because I didn't know about it.

We're trying as hard as we can. If you'd like, you can visit Operation Northstar to see what we've done so far. smile_o.gif

Cheers.
