Perhaps things have always worked this way and I never noticed it, but it seems pretty brain-dead: I have a path defined in my root.v4p to a folder with effects, modules, and plugins folders. vvvv sees the .v4p files in the modules folder (and subfolders), but not in the effects or plugins folders.
So patches that are part of an effect or plugin, sensibly grouped with the effect or plugin in its respective subfolder, are not seen and have to be moved into the modules to appear in the node list. Very messy and un-modular.
Whasup wid dat?
