Well we can certainly yell at users not do do those things, yeah, but as you say, no one reads read-mes or even installation instructions anyway. ("How do I install the game?" is a common question, after all.) So I don't know how much good it will do. We can shrug our shoulders and just say that the blame falls on the user then, but the overall impression will nonetheless be that Co8 is unstable and to be avoided, etc. People may even as a result recommend homebrews - use the old .dll, use the old front end, etc. So I think we have a vested interest in getting this right - as right as possible anyway. I'm still having trouble understanding how apparently nothing in the new release (be it TFE-X or the modpack itself) is causing problems, and yet all these new issues have arrived with it. It's really too long a shot to be coincidental in common sense terms. I think we should do some fairly rigorous testing with the old .dll and even the old modpack itself (7.8 - known to be stable) with TFE-X4 to see what happens. (I'll post up the old .dll for you here later - sorry, I forgot.) Also maybe 7.9 with TFE-X3 (with new activations to avoid the issues you outlined above).
