    Re: MMF2 Add-On Obtainer

    Multiple categories are supported. Just in the format that MMF2 uses. All you have to do is put a semicolon between names of categories. So "Data;Interface" would put something in both categories. This is one of the reasons all of the category input boxes allow you to enter anything.

    The other reason is that you can make your own categories. So if you put the category as "Awesome", that is what it will be under in MMF2.

    Re: MMF2 Add-On Obtainer

    I think you should add an option to download all extentions straight through the software, or does the manager already do this?

    Re: MMF2 Add-On Obtainer

    Yes, the Manager does allow you to install Add-Ons / extensions right through the GUI. See this screenshot:

    []http://puchisoft.com/mmf2aohq/scr/manager.JPG[/]

    New Version: 1.0Beta2
    [Manager]
    -Changed GUI colors
    -Properties now show Vitalized/OpenSouce status
    -Added ability to Uninstall Add-Ons
    [Obtainer]
    -Shows version in title now

    So yeah, we're getting a lot closer to the full featured Manager for the final version of 1.0.
    I gave some special love to the Uninstall dialog, and I think you'll appreciate it. It doubles up as an Enable/Disable add-on function (the kind that stops MMF2 from from seeing the add-on).
    When you click Uninstall, you get a pop-up window showing you all the files that will be removed by uninstalling, and you can optionally choose not to remove the add-on from the database (just the files).
    You can also choose which files to keep. Maybe you want to get rid of the add-on in general, but want to keep the readme.txt installed.
    Here's a picture for you visual people:
    []http://puchisoft.com/mmf2aohq/scr/uninstall.jpg[/]

    The Manager was made with MMF2, while the rest of the obtainer was made with MMF1.5. If you were wondering why filesize increase in v1.0, that's why. We got an MMF1.5 exe, the MMF1.5 DLL, and the MMF2 exe (w/ dll included). Ideally, I'd just have the MMF2 exe (w/ dll). The reason the obtainer is still in MMF1.5 format is the lack of message box support in MMF2. Also, Power Function would be nice, but I've been happily using the Function Eggtimer for the Manager in MMF2, so I could theoretically do without the PowerFunction object. ^_^ No hurry though, it's still small enough to fit on a floppy. heh

    Anyway, please reply with any bugs. I think it's pretty bug-free already though. Also, lemme know what you think of the new GUI colors.

    Re: MMF2 Add-On Obtainer

    No bugs? Good, 'cause heres the...

    New Version: 1.0!
    -Updated Readme.txt
    [Manager]
    -Clicking columns sorts the lists (Hold SHIFT for inverse)
    -Better Properties window
    -Improved Menu
    -Private AddOns open Author WWW on View/Install
    [Obtainer]
    -You can now double-click files to preview them
    -Fixed WWW links not opening in a new window

    Yes, a very exciting moment in the history of MMF2 Add-On Obtainer indeed.

    [Taken from the updated Readme:]
    >The MMF2 Add-On Manager
    This is the main "interface" of MMF2 Add-On Obtainer. While completely optional, it does provide the user with some neat features. While the normal usage of MMF2AO files is for authors to make them, host them, and user's visiting the author's site to download them from there, this manager allows you to easily find and install Add-Ons all in one place (much like the MMF2AO HQ website).
    The difference to the website is that the manager knows what add-ons you have already installed, and therefor can provide you with a list of all the add-ons you have not yet installed (or to which there are new versions). The manager also allows you to see what add-ons you do have installed, and uninstall them, should you so wish.
    On the note of the website, its benefit is its powerful search capabilities. When looking for a certain add-on, you may have an easier time finding it using the website - but this is mostly up to user-preference.
    [/End of Readme]

    Besides getting the add-on manager out to the masses, this version includes:

    >Ability to preview files before installing
    Yes, you can now "shell open" files within the list-of-files-about-to-be-installed. For example, if the author included a readme.txt or any other documents, you can open these right then and there after loading up the MMF2AO. No more need to dig through your MMF2 folder after installation to get the 'nfo. <img src="/center/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

    &gt;Column Sorting
    Yes, a very no-duh feature. You can now sort the lists of add-ons via clicking the column (SHIFT-Click to inverse sort).

    &gt;Easier Access to Common Features via the Menu
    Indeed. <img src="/center/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

    &gt;And all the new features from the Betas of 1.0


    I hope everyone enjoys this software. Tomorrow, I'm planning to upgrade the MMF2AO HQ to Joshtek's version.
