Summary0006514: Don't start Map Editor server if editor not found

Some people install MTA and don't choose to install the resources and or the map editor. When they start Map Editor they end up with a black screen and the only information is in the console.

When they click "Map Editor" a check should be done to see if they actually have editor installed and if not tell them to reinstall MTA SA and do not deselect Map Editor, resources or however the installer works.

TagsNo tags attached.

Perhaps we should just force everyone to install the server and the editor - I'm fairly sure we did that for the initial 1.0 release after we realised this could be an issue.

Yes, but still. What if they delete the map editor manually ?

I tried to install just the client to see what happens. It seems that when you select to install only the client the server is still installed we just need to force editor to be installed too (I don't see any downside of it being installed) and I don't think many people will go to resources and delete editor then wonder why editor doesn't work.

The problem is partially fixed as MTA now has full installer. The only part left is displaying a warning about missing files.
