Well that's interesting. People took a fanboi liking to Ace for stupid reasons and now they hate Rock for similar stupid reasons.
I can tell you don't know what Rock is. All you know of it is that it's not placed a button on your screen that may look ugly. Not the best thing for addons to go around doing but the core Rock library isn't a bad library for it.
Anything you know or feel about Rock, forget it and drop it. Unless you plan to develop addons on a framework you don't need to know it even exists. Just concern yourselves with the state of the addons themselves. The button is planned to be removed soon so all the ugliness you've seen will go away.
I could do without patronizing - if that was your intent. I failed to mention as well that I no longer have options for FuBar. Any time I rt click on the bar...Rock opens instead of the Fu options...ENTIRELY too large for the screen, I might add. I'd be happy with a simple answer to the original question I asked.
Rock is ckknight's new baby. It's a way of having all the settings for addons that are ACE addons in one place. It's all centralised in a moveable window that fades when not in focus. Personally I love because I don't think you need to close the rock window to make changes committ to it. You open it , fiddle around with it then go.
Did you prefer the old nested menus thing ? Cause I find that hard to use. Also and another thing it's now a required library for all future updates of ckknight's stuff (which includes Fubar). So if you don't like it *tough* ck ain't going to go back to the old way. If you want to use the most updated stuff you have to use Rock for configuration from now on ;(
Also another note : has anyone seen my rock icon ? I seem to of lost it *blush*
(i now use /rock to bring it up)
