How should you even know that there is no message box with one-hour interval when you use crack?excel wastes taskbar space?
Thus I redirected debug messages to file and displayed single startup messagebox. People were complaing that this one click blocks them from testing. bul*****... so I changed to one-hour interval to block people from using it - only to serve the original purpose = preview. Later I changed to two-hours interval and now it can happen that you won't see the message for six hours at all. And people still complain about one-hour interval. Also, just as I said above, the messagebox is displayed only when request to draw glass frame comes. And people still complain - not because they have problems but because they got limited version for free and they want full version for free. That's it, that's the real reason.
I must admit that I already wanted to release final version, but I delayed it. Why should I hurry? I don't think that people deserve it. They don't want to help with development, they don't want to test anything, they want only to abuse it for they own profit, nothing more.
1) I like to have things in my taskbar I actually use and it was way too easy to accidentaly click on it.
2) What version had startup-only? I'm using this since 0.1 and none of them were startup-only.
3) Whether you intended it to be used for testing or daily use is irrelevant. It's my fault if I screw up my W8 install not yours. Since 0.7 it was good enough to leave all day with only minor slowdown.
3a) You can't group people like that. Obviously plenty of them will be impatient like me, but you have to deal with that. If this is your first project I can understand the frustration, but you should take a look at some moddb's mod profiles and you'll see the exact same thing. You can't let some people discourage you otherwise you'll never release anything
4) It's not free. More like shareware if you know the term and I really hate shareware. Trial is much better for actually trying something.
5) I realized that months ago, because most of the updates weren't fixes, but rather new experiments unless you don't list everything in your changelog. Abuse it? Nah they want to use feature that was supposed to be in W8 in the first place if M$ wasn't bunch of dumbasses and don't want to wait if functional way is available which is why so many people grapsed at straws to get transparency working through that theme glitch.
It's not like we don't check for bugs if we don't have to click that messagebox...
Anyways if everything else fails I can always make the messagebox's window invisible and never close it.
This too. Do you really think we wouldn't report any bug we would come across so our experience is better? That is really silly.
