True, at least he makes an effort...not that I'll ever be able to use it...

unless he starts coding his stuf so that it don't dissapear underneath taskbars...then I'll be happy to toy with them...

he may not be happy with my opinion, but still that don't give him the right to come down on me like a ton a bricks if I ask for support for a format that's pretty much 90% (prolly much higher) the same as FS2 ???

plus the accompanying attitude of 'hey, I'm mister big here, don't dare ask or complain or start your own' gets my hairs on end _real_ quick...

Now JarC you're pissing me off, because now you're *****ing at me for things which i have said are out of my fragging control, if your taskbar is in a nonstandard position, it's autohidden, and windows likes to start the app underneath it cry me a river, build me a bridge and get over it

TWO

Descent users cannot use FS2 POFs, period, go look at the stinking IDTA specs for their versions, and the different file structure


Writing fs1 supporting code is not just the 500-1000 lines to read/write/edit it's writing the additional 500-1000 lines of GUI code [1000-2000 total]

Now I will only write in support for things that are gauraunteed to be used, fs1 modding is almost nonexistant, im an FS2 modder.  and SINCE IM NOT GETTING PAID I will make ALL decisions on what goes into my code or not, if yopu want to pay me for the software i will put POF < 2116 support in, but i gaurauntee the price will be high since i'll have to give V a kickback as to not be sued by them.

NO WRONG http://descent-freespace.com/ddn/specs/pof/

read it,

2116 and 2117 are FS2 POFs

whoa there fella, I'm pissing you off? who started this by the giving the above reply to a normal question?

sorry Setekh...I'm outta here...

 then you display ignorance, and act like you know what you're talking about.  And you dont considering FS2 POFs (internally "PSPO"s) are not compatable with descent PSPO
 formats.  Also FS1 modders don't exsist anymore [enought to give reason enough to write support for fs1]

   You once again cop an attitude, to you it's a small feature, but in implementation it's some major coding that would be unnecessiary and rarely used.

  Then you ***** at me for a bug that isn't my fault and isn't under my control, and is just an annoyance of having to move the master control window

  Once again the code difficulty comment obviously showing you haven't read the format specs

  And once again the attitude, ask anyone that was around when i wrote FS2MBU, or ask anyone that has given me _USEFUL_ feedback on any of my other programs, I get things done and when i refuse to do something there is a very good reason behind it.


Now do you want the conversion code done? or do you wish to keep harrasing me over me refusing to write a couple thousand lines of could that would be virtually unused

Stop it.

JarC: FYI, FS1 pofs can be converted to FS2 pofs by a simple FSMM2 operation, so that should not be a problem. Descent pofs are a little - different.

Kazan: Next time, take suggestions more politely. You don't have to fulfill them, but at least listen - not everyone knows that you have to write so much code to create a small feature, so bare with us all.

JarC: Sorry for the inconvenience, but in future - try not to continue arguments that you can see will not get anywhere.

Kazan: If you do this again, we will ban you.
