    Somewhat related, I actually would prefer two plain text files with instructions about where to put them rather than a smart package that knows what directories they belong in. I have no idea why I feel that way. Must be the Luddite coming out.

    I see that you have some ideas so I won't try and elaborate on my report, but I will add that there are no SKILL entries in the relavent planner_user.txt files.

    Tangentially, mafia seems to have an implicit naming convention along the lines of user_tag.txt as in the prefs, mood and session files. Any particular reason why you chose to reverse it? Since I am running three characters out of the same directory I am pretty used to sorting by filename if I want to clean things up.
    You just vehemently agreed with me

    This should be fixed with the most recent version, try again and let me know.

    Convention? That would require me to be aware of said convention (which I guess I might have been and simply ignored), and it makes far more sense to me for the data files to be ordered by the script that generated them rather than the user.

    edit to add:
    Code:
    readme.txt
    
    The files in folder X go in folder X.

    First, can we please leave the OS-wars to elsewhere everyone? I already have to ignore enough of that on other sites as it is.

    Also, while I would prefer the mafia convention for naming data files IF we could specify sub-directories to the map loading & saving functions, since we can't, I agree that it makes more sense for them to end up with the same prefix for each script.

    That does appear to be the 'standard' for user scripts... AdventureAdvisor_Theraze.txt, custd_Theraze_commands, custd_Theraze_custom, custd_Theraze_settings, custd_Theraze_values, OCD_Theraze_Data, and vars_Theraze. Of the 4 scripts in data folder that store based on user name, all 4 are scriptprefix_UserName.

    Well to be fair, Theraze, using half data files by me as your examples isn't exactly independent verification.

    Just saying that there's 4 scripts currently storing stuff in my data folder currently and all of them are doing script_name. While the other folders generally do name_specifics instead, the data folder doesn't have anything official with a character name.

    If we want to make Veracity give an aggrieved huff, we could point to zlib using it as authoritative.
