Now that I have finally registered here, I want to ask a question that has been bugging me for 2-3 years now.
Why did Directory Opus go mute??
Before anyone refers to it, yes, I now about the Sounds plug-in, but the plug-in is faulty in that not only does it copy wave files all over one's system (to both DOpus' %APPDATA% directory and also its install directory), but it doesn't actually restore old DOpus v.6's original sound scheme--it only provides the wave files for the user to clumsily to it himself.
Now, I'm not artistically inclined. Sad, but true. Picking backgrounds, color schemes, sound schemes, icons--whatever--is always a nightmare for me, and the day I upgraded to DOpus v8 was a sad day for me because, again, I lost my sounds.
So, again, just as a matter of curiosity, why did you guys abandon your sounds?
Well, I must admit that at first, I, too, thought the sound scheme was, for lack of a better word, a little corny; but over time, it's like one's eccentric uncle: it's all his particularities that make him so endearing.
