Hello again!
I just got a simple question this time:

I got this theory which tells me that if I'd taken the fCraft source, and wanted to change the software's name, all (cough) I'd need to do is renaming EVERY file, EVERY namespace, namespace decleration, classes and all other lines in the entire source which contains the word "fCraft", and change the name to something else.
This excudes, of course, the license and eventual copyright notes.

This is not something I'm planning to do, since it's obviously days of work, but I just wanted to know if this theory is true?

So, the simple question: Is it?

This doesn't break it at all, you can rename fCraft and claim it as your own all you want. If you're smart you also let your IDE or some other routine solve the renaming for you, just replace all instances of "fCraft" with your new name, and all instances of "fragmer" with "BobKare". Nopony's going to sue you.

But why would you?

I will try the IDE thing, though.
I'm just curious :P

Curious about your ability to replace words? Never seen that one before.

Renamed all 'fCraft' namespaces and declerations and other places, but when I build the main project file, it won't load fCraftGUI.csproj and fCraft.csproj.
The files are renamed to another name, but the error I get contains the original names.
Ps: I did not rename files and folders under obj's and bin's.

My guide:
1. Make sure you supply a copy of the licence with the software
2. Bring up the replace tool, type "fCraft" to replace with "YourSoftwareName" and keep pressing find next. If you see namespaces, don't change them, really, all you want to do is change string values that contain the word 'fCraft'.
Be careful or half your software won't work.
