I really don't want to play the "quote and respond snidely" game here. I meant no offense, nor did I intend to start any kind of argument. I just wanted to point out that the mod may be flawed, and that I like it enough to spend time finding the problem(be it in my comp or in the mod) so that I can fully enjoy it.
Sure, there could be a problem with my computer, but that's highly unlikely. It would be more likely in the install of the game, but I've tried it on clean 1.0 and heavily modded 1.0 with the same result. I've tried various updates and backdates if the Cleo components, also with the same results.
However, I do not get crashes at all when I'm not using your mod. As previously stated: I enjoy the mod in general and don't want to uninstall it, I just want to make it not crash or induce seizures. I also thought of a function that might add to the enjoyment of the mod, though I didn't mean to overstep any boundaries.
I misspoke(miss-typed) using the word "overhaul". As an admitted amateur I have no desire to "overhaul" it, nor to downplay your accomplishments as a scripter. You yourself said you didn't want to work on it anymore. (you also mention crashes in the documentation for the mod)
I have found that the flashing issues and returning to flight can be done in the "Core" script very easily, though the crashes I experienced came with original cleo and are no different with the copy I edited. So I know I didn't cause it that way.
I don't know how to view or edit .s files. I've read tutorials and don't recall externals for externals being covered, though maybe I missed something.
I would like to understand these adjoining scripts and how they work. Even if the mod didn't crash I might ask about them, since I'd not seen them since I started scripting. I can't seem to find the answer to this in google searches or searches of these forums, since searching for .s is about as nonspecific as you can get and yields too many unrelated and unwelcome results. Perhaps I should have asked in a different thread elsewhere, but there was no need for the condescending tone of your response. I was looking for help, not a fight. I know my phrasing can seem a bit abrasive at times, but there's no need to get cocky when you're already being asked for help.
If it's fear or unease about someone stealing your mod, I can assure you that until you pulled out your "I've been scripting since...." card and defined professionalism in modding instead of helping, I had nothing but respect for you. All due respect aside, I would not dare claim what isn't mine or release edits to something without credit AND permission.
Finally (Again, I mean no offense) but I do know that a "Professional Program" includes choices or information of where to install all features; options of the start menu, desktop, or quicklaunch bar for shortcuts; and that the documentation always comes before installation. It would also be a professional program and not an unlicensed file-only addition to a commercial program.
Criticism is only positive or negative based on what you do with it.
