I'm still wondering what the problem was. Both Conner and I seem to have had an almost identical situation going on and that makes me wonder if its not just something on my end. Did he ever figure this problem out? Whatever his issue is, its probably related to mine.
As I said, installed it twice, no dice. Haven't had time to go back to do it again (still don't) but there must be something afoot here, no? I'm obviously not the only person with the same problem.
Anyway, whatever happens to the base package really doesn't matter to me since I've been modifying mine for ages and will continue to do so (at least I hope to). If/when the issue is resolved and we know what the problem is/was I would certainly like to get back into alignment with the stock package and upgrade, and hopefully at that time it'll all work out.
Do whatever you think is best Samson. The community owes you big time for all the work you've put into the FUSS packages and either way you go I'm sure we're all behind you.
Keep up the good work, wherever it leads.
Just to respond to your pondering, ope, I never did resolve it for much the same reasons, just haven't had the time to try it again, but eventually will, and if I figure out what was wrong (I'll have Remcon help me through the next go around) I'll be sure to post for your benefit (and that of anyone else who happens to run into that issue).
Overall, I share this sentiment, Samson, if you decide to do it, I'll prolly add it to mine too to keep closer in sync, but either way is really your call because ultimately this is more your baby than any one elses.. and my code is so modified at this point that I can't really see what goes into the official package or not impacting my mud more than as a guideline of what sort of fixes I need to double check my own code for. Regardless of the desicion you reach on this, as GatewaySysop so well stated, I'm sure we're all behind you.
