It all seemed to work fine for me, the only issue i had was the first time i tried to search for entities, instead of clicking find i hit enter (it's a reflex thing for me lol), and it locked up the app and i had to restart it."
that is actually a 'background process' so it did not hang lol try it again just hit the find with no text it will list ALL fpe files so depending on how many you have it could take a few seconds I have around 10000 first scan indexing takes about 30 seconds after that about 10 seconds, I did mention this in the help file
just be patient with the first scan
Quote: "A few ideas:
Directory structure within the gameguru folder shouldn't theoretically change, ie effects will always be in effects reloaded, entities will always be in entitybank, and so on, so to make it more streamlined for the user you could have the settings option to set the base gameguru directory once and then each app add the rest on, and maybe give users a setting in each app so they could change it if they wanted to for some reason, would be less setting up for users, i know it's only a small amount of setting up, but every extra step you can remove makes a difference.
You have an effects editor under advanced, which is great, but it's rare that users will edit effects, however users are very likely to edit the settings.fx, i know you could edit settings.fx through the effecss editor, but how about for the less advanced users also adding a settings.fx editor in the main menu, make it like the fpe and setup.ini editor with drop down and input field boxes.
Keep up the good work Kev, it's looking great, i will certainly be buying it when you're finished."
I have kept it that way because I do not know where everyone installs there Applications too, so that if anyone installs to a different drive or directory Asset Manager can be pointed to that custom install (I use to have my steam apps on drive D
but also if you wanted to set a different folder for your LUA files or FX files (some people might not want to work with their 'Live' GG folders) you can.
If the consensus is that the initial setup of your folders is a problem then I can change it to just ask where the Root folder of GG is and work from there
I have from time to time edited FX files so that is why I put it in (I have set up a warning about FX and I see your point but I wanted to cater for as many users as possible) what I will do is add another Tab screen like I did for the LUA View (Global.ini) for just settings.fx then if users want to view the rest they just select the other tab.
I did not have drop downs on the FX editor because if I am honest I do not under stand them enough but yes you are right I could make the settings.fx file easier to adjust, after all it is only a matter of removing a comment (//) or adding one in settings.fx file so yes I will do that
thank you for the feedback I will start on these today and hopefully have an update before the end of day
