I am looking for NI Resources file/folder documentation (dist_database and image)
I've been using the information on this site (a great resource) to help me setting up images and colors for my third party VST: https://sites.google.com/view/nks-libraries/diy-preset
According to that site, for folder names / file names and some json file contents, one should use plug-in name and product name where the plug-in name should match whatever the VST is called in Komplete Kontrol but the product name can be selected freely (having it different from plug-in name might be useful in some scenarios). It goes on to say that 3 folders in dist_database and image should use product name and 1 folder should use plug-in name. However my experiments show that everything works out if I just stick with the same name for all of them (in other words when plug-in name = product name). So I am assuming that this might be incorrect or out of date.
Question: Is there a more recent / official documentation for this?
Bonus Question: Is there a documentation for how to prevent all saved third party Kontakt NKS presets from being grouped into the "Kontakt" instrument in the User section. I am trying to create a separate Instrument for each "library".
The info in the link you provided is current, this has not changed much at all. As far as a Deeper dive in to changing product tags (as well as a few others, you would need to use the NiMBank tool that you can find here..
there is a UI front end that someone put together, I am not sure of the Development status as I just use it Via the command line.
