RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Hello everyone,
I hereby present you a little project of mine, a new VP viewer and editor.

Features:
  • Fast VP opening
  • Opening entries with the default application
  • Editing the VP structure
  • Auto-update (can be disabled)
  • Drag and Drop support
  • Navigable browser-like history, use mouse buttons 4 and 5

Requirements:
  • .Net Framework Version 4.5, that means only Windows Vista or later is supported
Sadly no other platform is supported

Download here

The source is available on github. If possible please add issues with the application there so I can manage them better.

Changelog:
Version 0.3.1:
  • Added drag to explorer feature
Version 0.3.0.4:
  • Directories can now be created
Version 0.3.0.3:
  • Added temporary path customization
Version 0.3:
  • Initial release

Screenshots (these are taken using the default theme):
Blank starting screen


Opened Root_fs2.vp


Folder structure changed


Special Thanks
  • I thank achtung for providing me a place to host the files for this project
  • Thanks to BlasterNT for providing a beautiful icon for the application

    • Drag and Drop support (sadly dragging items to the explorer does not work)


    Damn! But I like the prospect of not having to extract files to open them up ! :yes:

    I'd really like to add that feature but it seems to be a non-trivial task to do so and I didn't want to hold off release just for that feature. I'll see if I can add it.

    Small update released, you can now specify the temporary directory the application will use. Specify this on the options page with the extraction location drop down list.

    Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
    I'd take a look at this myself if not for the Vista-and-above restriction, but it looks like good work. :yes:

    It may be possible to change the .Net framework version to 4.0 which includes Windows XP support but I'm not entirely sure if that's possible given that I'm using features from the newest version.

    This is fantastic work.

    Yes, that's right. I thought you meant that it looks like that because it's run on Windows 8.

     
    Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
    Any plans to make this work offline?  It throws an exception at me if it can't download an update.

    That is not intended, I'll take a look at it.

    EDIT: Should be fixed now.
