   Compilation Targets and Plugin Inclusion
 --------------------------------------------
 
-pcsx2-dev.exe is included into the installer as well *if* present (but is not required).
-The Release mode (without -dev) is required, and the script errors if it's missing.
-
-To include non-NULL plugins into the installer you must specify /DINC_PLUGINS on the command
-line when compiling the script.  The installer will include plugins only if they are present.
-If you do not build plugins, or remove some (or all) plugins before running the nsis script,
-only PCSX2 and whatever remaining plugins will be packaged.

 GSdx SSE2, SSSE3, and SSE4 versions are all included into the installer *if* they are present.
 You will need to follow the above instructions and compile all release targets to get all the
 GSdx DLLs.

+      Recommendations to Developers
+--------------------------------------------
+
+From Air:  I use Eclipse to edit NSIS scripts.  Do a google search for 'nsis eclipse' and it
+should take you to the NSIS wiki with instructions on how to set up a NSIS environment in
+Eclipse.  This typically only takes me a few minutes (yes it's really that painless).  Via
+Eclipse you can use F2 and F3 for online help and context help on NSIS commands, and the syntax
+highlighting is very clean and NSIS-specific.  Additionally it'll give you Visual Studio-style
+hyperlinks for errors during compilation, so that you can simply click on an error and be taken
+right to the offending line of code.  Highly recommended! :)
