I used the spherify deformer project from the SDK as base for my own object Plugin. But I have problems with the description resources. It works fine BUT Cinema 4D gives me an error when loading the object plugin, cause it wants the .res file from the Cinema 4D resource folder
cannot open ..../Cinema4Dfolder/resource/res/description/myplugin.res
How can I change that? I have a res folder in my pluginsfolder with a subfolder called description and a strings_us folder. Everything as described in the SDK. Went through it now a thousand times. And looked also in another example Objectpluginfolder (MSA ;), and everything seems to be alright. When I put my files in the resource folders of Cinema 4D everything works fine and as expected. But I want them to work from within my plugins folder.

I haven't encountered that. Do you still initialize the resources in PluginMessage()? Obviously you have changed something important, though it's impossible to tell what until I see the files and your hierarchy.
Otherwise you could try to take a fresh SDK folder and change one character at a time until it fails to load, or until it matches your project, whichever comes first...

No, but now I do and now it works.
Thanks very much
