Definitely a fan of your video tut's Rick

Just saw this post... Didn't realize you made another one.

I'll get to watching this asap!

To be honest videos tut's speak volumes to those of us that wish we could make our own addons but feel that the learning curve is too steep to climb for infrequent system reinstalls. However your vid's really seem to tap that urge in me to have a real attempt.

You've clearly put a lot of effort into your tut's. I really am thankful Rick. :)

How to create empty folder to this patch

C:\Documents and Settings\5\Application Data

One way you can do it is by creating a "FAKE".txt

[ApplicationData.Files]

Fake.txt

I am sure you know where to add the reset of the entries for the "fake".txt

Rick knows another way of doing it. I lost all the info I had saved from Rick on tips and tricks, but I know that was a easy way.

Thanks rick.

I just discovered these the other day. I have tried infs by looking at Mrs Peels addons. Video tutorials are much easier to follow.

Your videos are awesome ricktendo64! It's realle easy to understand. You're such a good teacher :D

By they way, I installed Kel's UberPacK v12.6 but it does not create a "Power Tweaks" in Right Click menu. How did you get this one? Manually?

Cheers,

Kal

EDIT: Is there an Addon containing only utilities for Addon makers? I mean, UverPacks comes with a lot of things I don't need, such as Image Resizer or Calculator Plus...

Unfortunately, the Uber Pack is the only thing out at the moment. I started working on a pack just for addon making/XPCD making tools but haven't had time to finish it, I also lost all that I had so I will have to start over.

Ok I'm gonna "rip" UberPack Addon if Kels agree and if I find time :P

I will remove any extra to keep just things we need to make addons and unattended xp cd.

LOL. Good luck, I have tried it myself with no luck. I am sure he will have no problem with you doing that, just make sure to give him credit.

Hmmm no I don't think I agree with a "Rip" of my pack. However you are free to build your OWN pack from the ground up with the tools you desire in it. Then release it.

No problem, I understand. I will build mine from scratch and it will be a great practice for me. By the way, may I use your power tweaks menu? Because that's exactly what I want... And for this, I will have to copy/paste your registry entires for "ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers"... I hope you don't mind.
