Just a thought: how about putting a documentation or an about (or whichever name comes to mind) button in the in-game pull down menu. When clicked it would display some user friendly informations, e.g.: the author, current version, maybe some short descriptions of available options and most useful, available key bindings
This way you could avoid making a separate documentation file, or if you think it's better, make the documentation button opens a documentation file without having to navigate to its folder.
EDIT: having thought about it more some improvements came to mind. Some documentation would be need to be available even before you get into the game. Such as info about setting insim port in LFS, admin password and PubStat key thingy. I wouldn't want to complicate things with my random thoughts, I hope you know i'm only letting it out there and you can decide on what, when and how
My idea for those 3 things is putting a small question mark button with an explanation tooltip or something. If you're happy with that then additional in-game info seems good to go.
If the second way is more to your liking, then rather than doing what i said, make the button for file opening harder to access. Not good to accidentally open a .txt over LFS while racing!
I actually like the idea of putting documentation inside LFS
Probably I could put a button on Other page which will show documentation, though not possible to show pictures via insim (probably a bit more detailed text on some parts)
Not exactly sure whats on your mind, but as you are talking of setting insim port, ... I think thats available long time ago (attachment).
When you first time start LFSLazy, that dialog will open, where you can set all needed data, clicking on each '?' will open up a MessageBox with more info
Regarding Hello message, well idea is primarily to say Hello to people you know I guess. Imagine someone join server and 10 people instantly say Hello, I would consider that as spam. Adding such an optiion wouldn't be problem at all, but I'd like to hear the reasons.
I get this error when i run Lazy with radar:
Could not create file mapping object.
Is new DDL subfolder supposed to be created in LFS root, or should I copy d3d9.dll and data folder from that DLL into the LFS root? Your data subfolder in DLL got me confused cause it is named as the one which LFS has
