...Still in beta, however, I find it much stable. This is what it is added:
- Custom standalone mods. By selecting the mod's application, and the mod's Library folder, you can add any standalone mod into the application.
- Many memory leaks fixed. No garbage collection used.
- Much more stable code, and many minor enhancements.
Perhaps the most notable thing of all is the new source. It's almost completely changed, and the inclusion of new things is much easier. I did that to encourage more people to download the new source and mess around with it, without having to devote much time to figure out what I've done, first. If that beta works fine, I'll release a full featured final version (with update check), and later the fully documented source, in both CVS and in my webspace as a dmg file. Oh, and... Taylor, I still have problems with it. It doesn't accept my login. Anyway, I will send you a pm requesting exact instructions, as a new version and source source is something that I think you wanted some time ago when you figured out that the project needed some modifications. I have the feeling that you wanted to get involved with it, but found it a little messy. Well, I hope this isn't the case this time.
Every basic functionality that existed in version 2.
What needs attention: Probably, for mods that are not the original FS2_Open application, you must select the folder that contains their preferences. So, you must have ran at least once that particular mod in order to have that folder created. Also, a new preferences file is used. It's called com.soulstorm.MMST2_3.plist and it is subject to change
. It resides in your preferences folder in your user Library.
Specific questions I would like to have answered:
Does it work in Tiger?
Does it display the available options ok? Does it work with the original FS2_Open as the old one (or better)? Does it work with additional standalone mods like it should?
Does the custom command line drawer display the proper enables options, and does it save any custom options that do not exist in the main window as expected (try to give an arbitrary command and see if it's saved in the .cfg file).
EDIT: Updated the beta again. Check the link again.
EDIT2: Updated the link again.
EDIT3: Download again, please. New beta released that fixes many new things...EDIT: March 2009
I will say it here, because I keep getting questions: As the read-me states, this is the correct order to do things in the Launcher:
1) Do whatever you want with the main window
2) Open the command line drawer (command-T)
3) Hit refresh. The drawer will be updated with all the contents of the main window.
4)Do whatever you want with the command line drawer by adding custom commands or removing some.
5) Save when done.Link updated to new location. -- Zacam (08/24/11)
