Hey, I'm not the one who said it, it was in fact one of the XBMC developers.
It's not wrong when probably almost no one uses the "latest stable version", but you could easily adapt your plugin to handle both paths depending if speical:// is available in the version the user is using or not. I've seen this in other plugins and it takes about 2 lines of code or so... It's shouldn't be that hard and I see no reason to support them since most people probably use an updated SVN version.
But it's your plugin, I just made a suggestion, do whatever you want with it...

What about loading something like MameWah? I'm going to try to have it launch MameWah and then use MameWah frontend to organize MAME, NES, SNES, games and launchers. Quitting should leave you back at XBMC. If not, I'll use eventghost to automate that action on exit.

Does my plugin work with the P:\\ in the svn version? translatePath function should translate it to actual path without the need of special://profile.
If it doesn't, I'll update my plugin and release it as separated version.

Seriously, there's no need to do it as separated version, you can easily adapt it... I don't remember in which plugin I saw this and I'm not at my HTPC at the moment, so can't look if I have it there, but you just need to create some variable your self and check if special exists, if it does, use it, if not, don't. Then use your variable across the script instead of P:// or special://. There, the script will work for anyone, no matter which build they are using.
I can't test the plugin right now for the obvious reasons but I'm not sure the plugin will work because special:// points to the correct user folder, where the user is saving their settings and stuff, P:// does not (as far as I know). If someone, like me, prefers to have everything in the user folder (where it belongs) it probably won't work. But I don't know exactly how you are using paths in your script, so I may be wrong...
Maybe someone else can test this.

Launcher Plugin Problem ! - burnout - 2009-04-18 20:35
Here's my problem:
Is there any way to move the Launcher Apps programs you have "installed"
So you dont have to go: Programs>Plugins>Launcher>Program.exe
So you can take a shortcut like this: Programs>Program.exe
Thanks in advance !

Well not like that. You can Programs>Launcher>Program.exe by editing the screen file. Or you can hardcode it in the screenfile the same thing launcher is doing.

Hi I am new here and have just started using XBMC. Launcher is the first app that I have installed so that I can launch a web browser from within XBMC to check my local TV guide.
The problem I am having is that Firefox launches but XBMC remains in the foreground so Firefox is hidden behind it. Is there a quick n easy solution to stop this happening?

A while ago I wanted to request a way to select thumbnails from hard disk (instead of the yahoo image query) but it seems that the launcher plugin is no longer developed. Is that still true? Are there any alternatives which are actively developed?
