Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.4.3 (launcher / mod installer)
I guess I'll worry about the mod display first and then we can see about dealing with the UI above the HTML window.
I think it's easier to code the new UI in HTML than to style the current UI.

So you want to completely remove the qt stuff and do it all in HTML/CSS/JS? Sounds good to me. I'll need some help getting things like the search function, filter function to work.

Is there a way to remove the OS default title bar so we can do something that looks nicer like what I have in the mockups? (Would need to add minimize, maximize, close options.. and I'm not sure about cross platform.)

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.4.3 (launcher / mod installer)
Since the OS window wrapper already provides those things, is there a good reason to suppress it?  This is one area where I'm not sure doing it the steam way is really useful to us.

I love the Mantis sandbox, create a quick mod that can reproduce a bug, and then have something easily distributed to others to reproduce it right?

I have done that by hand on several occasions, automating that could be a real time saver.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.4.3 (launcher / mod installer)
This is still fully functioning. Mouseover events work and everything. I need to do the "available" page which is mostly copying what I just completed. ngld, to go beyond that I'll probably need a little direction from you and/or help with the JS files to get access to the mod properties I need to build the Details pages.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.4.3 (launcher / mod installer)
Is "Update List" actually supposed to update what is displayed based on changes you might have made to the drive outside of Knossos?  I thought the update button was going to be a 'check for updates' function, if so "Update List" seems a little confusing to me.  Although if you still plan on replacing most of those buttons with more stylized icons and such, I guess the wording isn't as important.  Unless it will display on a hover event.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.4.3 (launcher / mod installer)
I haven't touched that top area because it's not currently done with HTML, so I have no way to touch it. But yeah, I think Update List checks for updates and/or new available mods to download. Might also check for new mods in the Freespace2 directory.

Awesome work; and so quick!  :pimp:

I haven't touched that top area because it's not currently done with HTML, so I have no way to touch it.

I'm pretty sure the rest of the window is configurable in QT Designer; using the ui/hell.ui config file (not that I have a clue about qt-designer I'm afraid, I'll have to read the doco).

I think the idea is to recreate most of that in HTML/JS. So I just need to figure out how the buttons and the search bar are talking to JS from qt and then recreate that in the HTML page. Once I figure that out, I can start to build the rest of the UI... while I learn JS on the fly, I guess.  :lol:

Nice! That was quick! :D

I will need to change a few things in Knossos to make that work. I might be able to give you something to work with in a few hours.

It does both. It downloads the new list from the Nebula and then checks the mod directories.

The buttons and search bar are both calling update_mods(). Switching the tab or triggering a search from JS is not possible, yet. That's one of the changes I have to implement.

@krevett62 and Joshua: I've released 0.4.4 which hopefully fixes the bugs you found.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.4.4 (launcher / mod installer)
I installed it, and I'm back to the 0.4.1 problem, this time the program runs but I still cannot choose my FS2 install path, the button does nothing. The other two buttons seem to work (install from gog/install a TC) but that's not what I need ^^

Well sorry I looked through the settings and did not see it the first time (although I saw again the option to install from Gog!!)
It works now thanks!
