Finally had a chance to try the NMM and I must say, looks decent so far, but I have to chime in on the LOGIN thing.
You ask the general question "why don't I want to log in?"
I don't mind logging in, but:
A - I do absolutely not want to manually key it in every time I start the game. On the assumption that I will be modding, that means I start the game A SH*TLOAD of times on any given day and logging in every time will drive me immediately batsh*t.
B - Just now I tried NMM four times. 3 times it could not connect. This, I suspect is due to traffic (good for you!) - since it's quitting-time here on the East Coast of the US I bet there's a bunch of mod-hungry gamers rushing to their keyboards to see how many new versions of FXAA Injector came out today - but I'm already "over" trying to use NMM and I can only imagine my mounting frustration as I try out my new, uber-cool mod only to be held up trying to connect to the ever-popular Nexus.
C - Y'know, nothing for nothing, but sometimes I'm just not well-connected to the internet. So I can't play in a hotel with shoddy wireless (for instance)?
So then... suggestions you say? Because bitching is only useful if there's some constructive critism...
Sure, I've got some suggestions:
A - An option to have NMM remember my login/password info and if I've selected it, in order to quietly go about logging in without interrupting my mod-mojo
B - Let NMM start up the game (at least) whether or not login is successful. If it's unsuccessful, have it retry in the background. If it fails after 10X tries, have it say so. Otherwise, even unconnected, let me play, please.
Thanks for NMM though... should be aces.
