Did you get an email saying your pack had been rejected ?

Did you get an email saying it had been removed?

If the answer is no to both of those, then you have nothing to worry about, packs are not posted to the site untill they have been reviewed, reviews can take a few day or a few weeks, depends on how busy things are, no need to keep submitting it, we'll get to it eventually.

How do you know it has been "banned"?, I'll say again, have you recieved any kind of email to say that it has?

Maybe if you provided a little more detail, it would be a lot easier to help you.

Right, ok, finally, some details, I don't deal with AVS packs myself, so I've asked an AVS reviewer to come here and provide you with an explanation as to what is wrong.

My guess is you submitted it as a .zip file yes?, files need to be packed as .exe installers, not .zip files , course I may be wrong.

Hopefully the AVS reviewer will make things clear for you.

For the last time, you are gonna have to wait for an AVS review guy to come and explain what's wrong, I've sent a message to an AVS reviewer for you and hopefully he will explain what's up, untill then you are just going to have to wait.

Ok Mr stoopidgenuis calm it down.

I will look into what happened for you.

Do you have a compenent ID of your pack.

I couple recently had installer problems and I think they may have been rejected.

Did it install to the correct directory. ..../winamp/plugins/avs/.../

Thank you Mr. JOnes for handling thus far.

And if you don't know what or how to find your Component ID, might I suggest you read this first, as it explains in it how to find it.

On second thoughts ...

Well, if you took the time to read the post above yours, not only have I given you a link to a thread that explains how to find the Component ID, I've also cut and pasted how to get it into the thread.

Here is the bottom line, if you do not provide the component ID, then there is nothing we can do for you, there are litterally hundreds of skins and plugins submitted at winamp.com, these are reviewed by several people, so unless you tell us what the CID is, then we have no way of knowing what component you are talking about,and what might be wrong with it.

This discussion has gone on way longer than it needed to, so the next post from you either contains the Component ID so we can help you, or you don't post at all.

Your choice buddy, were trying to help you, but you have to help us first, understand?

Ok still a couple of small problems/could be made better.

It is not detecting the winamp directory which we would recommend

CHeck this thread:

http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....highlight=nsis

for a nice NSIS script that will do most of the stuff for you.

The font that is in there if I remember does not install correctly too.

I will move this thread to the AVS troublshooting forum so all teh brains there can help you also.

I hope it helps

You pack kept being rejectied because the installer would not install to the proper directory. An email was sent a theory on why it might not work, did you recieve it?

An AVS forum regular developed an install script that seems to be pretty robust. You should be able to tweak it to suit your needs.

1: THIS ISN'T A CHATROOM.
2: If the preset contains someone else's code (red, green, blue spectrum), credit them.
3: Don't submit presets and imply that you wrote the code (fire frequency)
4: It's not exactly kosher to use someone else's entire preset, add/change something, then rename it. If you do that, use the original name/artist and tag '(rmx)' onto the end of the filename.
5: If you're having trouble with the installer, then post the installer instead of just saying 'It says I'm having trouble with my installer, please help!' This is like taking the bus to the auto shop and asking him to fix your car.

People!

Hello. I was in a rush. I think I fixed the bug, but Atero said "if I remember correctly, the font didn't install to the correct directory." The readme said put the font in the fonts folder. Anyways, I don't know how to code on the NSIS program database. Do pray tell...

First zip up your installer exe file. a zip of all your presets isn't really all that useful in a installation query.

And be patient and don't send me a whole host of PM's saying are online etc.

2. I can make an installer, but it won't put the font in the correct folder.

Perhaps use a different font. If you can't fix it, work around it.

Hey! You're a "major dude." Since I bet you have made installers, can you please send me code for installing the font in the Windows(or WINNT)>Fonts folder?

I didn't say that, but I shouldn't have to move files around to view presets; I know the instant I see 'move the font to the fonts folder' that you're not good enough for me to spend my time doing that just to see your presets. The installer code isn't that hard if you take the time to read the instructions. Put more simply, RTFMDA

Major Dude is just a rating based on your post count.

Also, didn't UnConeD specifically say that if you use any part of his preset (that means if you use all of it, too) that you include the comment?

I have written a grand total of one install script, and that just dumped all my files into a directory and ran notepad with my readme file loaded.

I gave you a link and repied to your PM with some advice that I won't repeat here.

Ok, who you really are?
Sometimes your presets looked like you have to know about avs atleast a bit, but then i see how you managed to mess up my scope from the preset "supascopas II" and thought that you're just another n00b...

Is this just a joke?
