ALL MY YES

That is absolutely gorgeous and befitting of the file type.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Thank is fantastic! :yes: I updated the application to include the new icon.

 
Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Hmm, so I'm playing with it a bit more, and it looks like the click-to-run is being quite the hassle.  For one, that means the app icon in the start menu has no icon, and it also means I have to dig for the really really obscure (C:\Users\Chen Ye\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\6NTTJ20Q.HA9\OBTPONOM.ZV2\vpgu..tion_0000000000000000_0000.0003_caef5661a7f34f77 orly) click to run application path in order to associate .vps with the app.  No idea how you'd alleviate this without breaking the autoupdate though.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Hmm, I never had a problem with the deployment process. Uninstalling (via the standard Windows software dialog) it and reinstalling it could solve that though. The application will also create a shortcut in the Start menu so you don't have to dig though your files to find it.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Nice :) I have a question, how did you make so nice UI? :)
I see you're using C#, is it WPF or just Windows Forms? Or maybe you did write it alone? :)

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
It's using WPF for the UI which is also a reason why this application is not available for other platforms than Windows.

 
Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Hmmm can't extract with this, tried extracting from the root.vp and got "Open Error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect."

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
The error does not occur on my side. Is the path you try to extract to a special path or something protected like Program Files? The application is not run as an administrator which may cause trouble in some special cases.

Nice! Did you use any tutorial on creating that beautiful UI or just your own skills? ;)

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Well, I needed a lot of tutorials to get used to WPF and also C#/.NET. The UI mostly just used the features of the "Metro"-framework provided but is mostly nothing else than a simple version of most file system applications with a tree and directory list.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Why when I'm trying to save a modified VP File it gives me an error that this .vp file is already used by another process? I have all programs closed, only VPGui opened.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Since the installer no longer works (it requires FSMods), I compiled a build.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
I fixed the download system by moving the files over to GitHub. Here is the new link: https://asarium.github.io/vpgui/update/setup.exe
You probably need to uninstall the old version since the new version uses another URL for detecting updates so it won't update automatically. Apart from the new hosting location there are no further changes in the new build.

 
Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Having the same problem as bckq.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
I'm also having the same problem as bcKq and Asteroth. It just gives me a write error saying that the VP I'm trying to save is open in another process. If anyone could look into this, it would be appreciated.

That happened to me, and I think I had the same VP open in another window already.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
AFAIK VPGUI does not close and remain in the memory, even if you click on "Close". So check if there is still another VPGUI.exe process in the Task Manager.

Re: RELEASE: VPGUI - Yet another VP editor
Are you perhaps thinking of VPMage?  I've never seen that happen with VPGUI.
