Are the views extra for all views I have now?
I have already installed some new views a while ago, on top of the original views..

Hi "developer" Alan,
is nice to see you put new F3 views here. But: installer looks too big to have only .ini files there,
so I just unzip this installer. And what i find? Instead of Planes .ini files with views, folder
(yeah, the 2.5MB one) named Landspaces with intro screens for these sceneries:
Alpi2, Alpi3, central_alps, HW_SWGermany, Nuova cartella, Provence, SouthWest_GER

And all these intro screenshot are advertisement for your SoaringClouds...
Please don't make promo this way, is annoying I think and I don't wanna see your
clouds ad screen while starting Provence scenery task.

Thanks for views, but kill the ads :)

NO
Installing it , you will loose your views.

I have already installed some new views a while ago, on top of the original views..
In this case if you want to conserve your views (the views you have now) and add the new ones, you mast copy your original text and pass them manually inside the new files.
For making this, first make a copy of your ".ini" files. ( folder: Condor\Planes\ASK13 etc)
When you past the text of your .ini files into the new .ini files remember to change the [Camera0] number to [Camera14] , [Camera15] , [Camera16]...
It will takes you a bit of time but it will be very simple.

Else if you uninstall SoaringCloudsCAMS it will return to Condor original settings and not to your settings views.
Sorry for my English but if you need more indications i'm here.
Kind regards
Alan Mattano'

Hi Erik , in the version [v1.2] i take out all the 6 pixes. thanks for the advice
Instead of Planes .ini
Inside there are all the files .ini in the correct position & the uninstaller.

Else, sorry for the folder "Nuova cartella". Is now correct in the version [v1.1]

Do you like the cams?

Thanks and enjoy them

Not only these lanscapes. I found, that this man is modifying my landscapes Slovak Rep, Czech Rep and SlovakiaCE too. Mr. Mattano, your poor "product" damage level of my landscapes! Do you think is a correct modify work of another authors without his permission? I have no words! This is disgusting and Mr. Mattano is now at the my web´s blacklist. I must add to my future installers anti-mattano script I am afraid. He would be not surprised when my installers will remove his clouds and replace by default condor clouds for example... It is not problem, but I am not Mr.Mattano so no worry about it :)

edit:
I am now creating a setup, which will clear my lanscapes from this poor images. If anybody from other scenery developer has interest, contact me and I will clear your landscapes too. Will be available from my web soon.

My setup "Mattano´s pictures cleaner" is ready at my web - http://www.condorworld.eu
At this moment this program clean only my landscapes, but I can add original pictures for any other lanscape (if author will ask me) with my greatest pleasure. :)

Well I understand your feelings, but is that really the right thing to do with this? Many people have bought his clouds, and if I ban him, there will be no support for them.

I do like Milos's solution .. :)

It is not the first time that Mattano spam the community with his clouds :roll:

But still, not only he is allowed to access this forum :shock: but he is also allowed to advertise addons that contain clouds_spamware :shock:

As a consequence:

1. Users are infected by the clouds_spamware, resulting in a damage in their Condor installation

2. Milos has to spend time to create the "Mattano´s pictures cleaner". If other landscapes are infected, Milos will spend even more time. Don't you think Milos can spend his time in more valuable tasks?

I find that unacceptable.

It is a shame that no action is taken.

It's like Marek (22) in the past. How long do we have to bear those kind of guys?

I am afraid we must live with people like this, no solution. Adding a new picture sets to my cleaner for next scenery is a one minute. Unfortunatelly is not possible write only simply program for delete his pictures from all landscapes, because he can change a picture names at next his setup. So there must be set of original pictures at my setup and I must delete folder with pictures before. But I am not expecting that many people will need it, everybody can delete his pictures manually.

Are these unwanted pictures in the image folder of the landscapes concerned? Then its a quick job to delete them... unless you have thousands of landscapes installed :lol:

yes, it is. Most of users are able delete it manually, folder Program Files( or Program Files (X86))/Condor/Landscapes/sceneryname/Pictures. I was thinking about users which have no good skill for this with my setup and especially for me it is unacceptable, so users of my landscapes must have any tools.

BTW: I got a idea modify Mattano´s clouds by my logo, very easy and it could have great effect and surprise for condor pilots :mrgreen: but... I like this community and I have no interest destroy psyche of my friend. :wink:

I do :oops: . But there again i only run standard clouds as they are good enough for me to fly without any problems. Milos has a good idea with the remover but it would be better when Mr Mattano makes the installer with a tick box to omit the Soaring Cloud adverts, Then the people who don't want them can omit them. :wink:
