Not really a bug - but something that might be looked into.
« on: March 07, 2006, 01:21:41 pm »
I like to call it "idiot-proofing".

I was trying to run the game and accidentally slipped and went too far on the start menu.

The game uninstalled, just like I inadvertantly told it to.

We might want to add a check in there before running the uninstall (something like "Are you sure you want to uninstall this application? - Ok/Cancel").
Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.

Agreed...personally, I REALLY like stuff that checks with you first.

Dave and I were talking about it, and yes, that's a good idea. If you would like to see it in the next release, please, figure out how to do it with NSIS (just look it up, you don't have to understand it.)

Right now, I don't know if we're going to have time to put it in (three tests this week, AND bunches of stuff to do next wekk AND I'm pushing to get networking done this dev cycle.... so yeah, if anyone could look this up for us, it would be great.

I, on the other hand, will be in California on a mission trip with my church, so I'll be out of commission all next week. I'll let y'all know how it goes, though. :)
