    If you install multiple plugins and some of those plugins have the same file names (i.e. Makefile), how are you supposed to handle this? If these files exist for certain plugins, is it OK to overwrite them when installing new plugins? I would assume the answer is no. If that's the case, can you just use a text editor to combine these files from multiple plugins?

    The src folder isn't needed to run the plugin, that's just there for developers to learn from the code of the plugins.

    Usually you would only need to put the .prx file, and possibly a folder that's required for it to work. Then edit the game.txt / pops.txt / vsh.txt of course.

    Also Makefile is only important if you are a developer, it's a file that contains instructions for the compiler on how to compile the program.

    Thanks guys. So I don't need the src folder at all, correct? That's awesome.
