Am I allowed to add my inofficial RP Page in a link list at the end? I'm not sure... (gordon-creAtive)

RP, RP2, ETS, ... - which of them should be supported?

I can see RockPatch2 flags getting their own pages using the Flag template, like normal game flags, that makes sense. But what about RockPatch1 and ETS? VK basically severed all ties with this place and demanded that we don't use anything of his. Both pd and VK (IIRC) have decided to stop supporting RP entirely, and it's going to be superseded by RP2 eventually, so what is the benefit of documenting its flags when it's deprecated at best?

Also, let's not forget that there are now five different patching projects:

  • RockPatch2 (YR)
  • NPatch (YR)
  • RockPatch (YR, deprecated)
  • ETS (FS)
  • HyperPatch (FS)

So if we do intend to document RP and RP2 separately, let's plan ahead for HP as well, and make sure everything, like the Flag template, are extendable as necessary, and define the guidelines for documenting their changes.

Not ETS, not NPatch.
Not RockPatch, because nobody can say which version is the true last version of it. (pd's? VK's? The last working one?)
RP2, once there's a first general public release.
HyperPatch, once there is a first general public release and there are signs of adoption among the users.

Well, in terms of the original RockPatch, I've just been documenting everything up to RockPatch 1.10. ETS and NPatch are not officially hosted here, so I don't see why they would be included. If HyperPatch wants to be used here, I have no objections. RP2 is a definite yes.
If you want, I can stop documenting RockPatch flags on their own pages.

I'd agree on dropping the support for all old RockPatch versions, since we have them compiled by Nighthawk and I don't think we could keep track of all of VK's changes. Supporting the old RockPatch with NPatch out is pointless anyway.
ETS was can be considered big failure and it seems to be dropped anyway. For HyperPatch - if it is going to come - as DCoder suggested, we should see how much interest there is in it.

Also I think the MDK's and Nighthawks Docu is good enough. --Gordon-creAtive 22:12, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
So, should I keep putting RockPatch flags into new pages? There's a good few more that could be documented if you want me to go on with it. Or, should I start marking those RP flag pages for deletion?

Putting everything in one page

I'm not sure there's anything else in the RockPatch namespace worth putting into a page on the RockPatch. I mean, the Wishlist and Votelist are useless; the Status page talks more about RP2's development; and Gordon's version logos can be found by going to his site, which is in the links section of this page.

Any thoughts?
