(I’m sorry, in advance, for my bad English! XD), I have an addon that uses an external (“res”) image file, provided with the .py in a .zip archive (so the user has to install the add-on by loading the .zip archive in User Preferences - Install Add-On); the problem is that I want to “install” (or, better, copy) the image file when installing the add-on, which loads that file with a local path.
If the script is… a script, not an Add-on, I can specify the path and load the file, no problem here; the problem is “installing” / loading (providing, perhaps) an external file with an Add-On, which has to be installed.
What do I have to do to use external, “res” files in an Add-On? Should I specify the path of external files to be carried on with the .py somewhere in the script? Or in a init/“manifest” file?
I’m sorry (again) for my bad English… thank you in advance
