Hey... I just read what CopyTrooper posted here (http://web1.athen215.server4free.de/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=312):

Can't you just name the controller randomly? E.g. run a shuffle name generator on installation and name it that way? That would make it impossible to blacklist D-Tools just by the controller name...

Dunno if this is possible, it just came to my mind when reading CopyTrooper's post...

No, isn't possible, this can cause many trouble with update/remove-option.

We are not that stupid :twisted: discussed this random controller name generation months ago ;) but as Locutus already said: Impossible mission :roll:

good point... well, if you've already discussed that I don't think there was much I could contribute to your ideas.

Thanks for the answers nonetheless...
