Miscellaneous Stuff - NemPosted: Nov 16th, 2005 - 1:54:55 pm

Haven't posted much lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy working on my tools. GCFScape has been updated to version 1.3.1, including a rework of the extraction progress bar and a bug fix for the properties form crash. You can grab them here. VTFLib and VTFEdit have also undergone some bug fixes and improvements, including reworked HDR exposure code. You can grab it here.

I've also been toying with the idea of moving to the recently released .NET Framework v2.0 (as opposed to .NET Framework v1.1) because it fixes several fundamental design flaws that effect some users of my tools. However, the two versions are not compatible, which means I would no longer be able to release v1.1 versions of my tools and users would be forced to upgrade for later versions. (You can have both frameworks installed at once though.) I know how much some people hate having to download the .NET framework, and the new version, while it supports the same operating systems, only supports the latest service packs. Does anyone have any opinions on this matter?

I wouldn't get too worried about the people who don't run Windows Update, tbh. ;)

2.0 for this win! And SBSP viewer is looking GREAT! Good work Nem.

I'd say go with v2.0 for future devolpment, but leave the older v1.1 tools around as 'legacy' tools for those who don't want/can't upgrade to v2.0

I say no to v2.0 unless there are some huge monumental changes that will help you.

I don't have SP2 and never will. I also know a large amount of people that won't upgrade either. If it works with SP1 then I'm cool with it.

Any reason you don't want to upgrade to SP2?

I added .vmf support:

And .map support (I get distracted easily):

And a material browser for, well, any material (.gcf / .wad / .whatever):

And a file browser (basically an advanced GCFScape which allows you to mount more than one file or folder at a time, and even embedded files (like .wad files inside .gcf files):

Theres a lot of dogma about SP2, "instabilaty", "destrying hard drives", "incompatabilaty" ect. That's usualy what is causing many not to upgrade, the only reason I can see is the the securaty center can be abit anoying from time to time and that you have to press "yes im aware that thers viruses on the internet" every time you download a file and try to shell run it.

The securaty center can be removed by the way.

Oh, does .net 2.0 run on win98se?
if so and if .net ins on windows update then i say switch.

.NET 2.0
"Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3; Windows 98; Windows 98 Second Edition; Windows ME; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP Service Pack 2"

I'd say yes.

Oh man, I'd KILL for a source BSP viewer -- Anything to bypass the ENORMOUS load times of HL2.
