This only registers help for the source files of the tiOPF.lpk
directory and its sub directories.
For additional directories use the AdditionalDirectories parameter.
See your own examples:

 RegisterFPDocHTMLHelpForPackage('tiOPF2Core','tiOPF2 Core Help',

The BaseURL is the property for the user to override the built-in
default URL. I added a read only property, so the user can now see the
default in the IDE options.
