1. Why would you include winamp with your script, anyone can download it from anywhere?
Because, let me say it again.. ITS EASIER. Who wants to go all the way to the winamp site and get it, when I can put it in a nice little bundle for just a little extra download time?
quote:The official mIRC FAQ says:
2. Did you include a mIRC.exe within your script as well? Thats also not needed as anyone getting a mIRC script is likely to have mirc.exe if not they can download it.
See above. I dont know, maybe I should provide a "complete version" and a "download this this this this this this this this this this this, and that" seperately version.
If you are creating a script, you must distribute your script as a separate file, and ask users to visit the mIRC website to download mIRC if they don't already have it installed.
quote:You go on about why people should "have to" download winamp etc, well why should they "have to" download an av scanner and scan the exe file because u wouldnt release it as a zip?
5. Zip files are preferred over .exes because .exes could contain virii or trojans. I could easily wrap a sub7 trojan in with an executable and upload it to this site if they alowed such nonsense.
Uh, its called a VIRUS SCANNER. You scan it and if it has a trojan you delete it. OH MY GOD THATS SO HARD. I hate to bash this into your head with a sledge hammer, but the reason it should be an exe is its (what was that word he kept harping?) EASIER. You can make something with winzip self-extractor, they type in their mirc directory and zip zip zip.. done. Instead of unpacking, unzipping, loading, typing /load -rs script.ini, downloading the applications that are a good idea to have with the script.. this just gets longer and longer and longer.
And, to end the post i'll say this. I dont wanna start a fight or a long war thread, just making some points.
Edit: Put a link to the official mIRC FAQ where i quoted from it
