    So noob question: what does the "make it so" patch do?
  2. #2  
    It's a goofy patch to make the "Just Type..." field say "Make it so..." instead

    I like it. Captain Picard used to say, "Make it So" everytime he issued an order to a member of his staff on "Star Trek - The Next Generation" :.)

    Goofy? Maybe to some people, but not to others. Live and let live (or is it "Live long and prosper").

    Indeed. Nice quote. Mahatma Gandhi once said that during his peaceful resistance :.)

    edit:I was able to use the make it so patch to add a custom message. It was actually pretty easy to do using Internalz.

    Now my question is: Does showing others how to do this violate any homebrew ethics or code of honor? (seriously) Is this considered hijacking code? I don't want to offend whoever wrote the patch or break any developer's rules.

    second edit: Here's the screenshot:

    I could never get my fingers to do "live long and prosper." But I can get them to do "die quick and fail"

    Perfectly fine. Just don't share Palm modified files. Sharing the modified .patch file is fine and encouraged.


    If I helped you or you have downloaded one of my files,
    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    Yeah, what he said.

    Unfortunately, we can't make it customisable using Tweaks. If we could, you'd be able to add your own custom message easily.

    Thanks Rod. Is there a guide for writing patches and having them added to Preware? I had another idea, but I can think of two or maybe even three ways to approach it.

    Couldn't you make a little engine like the "add tabs to launcher" into Tweaks and have it compile/install a patch with the custom string in there?
