AHHHH! explode Sorry OV...looks like I started a snowball over a couple of small human errors. I don't think this is a major problem for anyone to get excited about, just something to keep an eye on. A little proof reading as you go.

Hi Robert. I think a routine that cross-checks the actual names in the datafile to the skins in the folder would be great.

We tried this visually, and were asked to make absolutely sure we were correct with out work, but man... I guess mistakes still slipped by. There were just so many skins, over 4K I think?
That kind of routine would be great and could give you as a user a list to make your own corrections.

I will eventually speak with Pol and see if there is a way we can a patch to just the skins folder. Meaning, instead of burdening the main game patch, maybe offer a seperate update patch to the skins. It's hard because as you can see.. you'll get a patch, to a patch, to a patch.... etc. But it needs to be done, there are already enough errors to justify the need for it.

Guys, I'm not offended at all. I appreciate you guys finding these issues and bringing them forward. It's important. As you can imagine (and I'm sure any of the team that spent all our time making these skins for the game feels the same) it's heart-breaking to think that even one of my works would not be seen because of a spelling error or that I put a space somewhere... etc.

So please, have at it. When you find 'em, post 'em. We'll eventually work something out to get better system to correct it for you, but for now.... it's manual, done by the user.

All the best,

OvS
