    Re: MMF2 Add-On Obtainer

    One little bug after installation.
    When I ran it for the first time it updated ok.
    Then I ran the updater from the dialog box, it ran through the updater and then closed instead of going to the dialog box again.

    Great program.
    Some ideas for version 2 extension comparer between runtime and editiontime. Version comparision, file size, etc See old forum for examples.

    Re: MMF2 Add-On Obtainer

    Glad you like it! ^_^

    About the bug, that's actually intended behavior. There are two modes to the updater. The silent mode that only notifies you if something was actually updated (this mode is used for that auto-check-for-update that happens when you first run the program and once a day thereafter). Then there is the manually run mode, where it tells you at the end that no program update is avaliable, if that's the case.
    The thing you were talking about, that the Add-On Obtainer program closes after you press the "Check for Updates" button is also there by design. Launching the Add-On Obtainer directly is like a Welcome Screen or launch window. It basically lets you get to one of the other main features of the program and then closes.

    That's however different from the Add-On Manager. There you will also find an option to check for updates (under the Help menu), and the program is not closed by clicking this button. In fact, there's really no need to run the Add-On Obtainer's Welcome Screen again after first installing. It's just there to ease people into the program (if they don't want to read the ReadMe). All features the Welcome screen gives access to can also be easily accessed from the Manager (except the setting to change your MMF2 directory, which pops automatically anyway, whenever you move that folder).

    By the way, there's been a small revision of v1.0. A small bug was fixed in the updater, and it now notifies you when it updates the Puchisoft Database. Also, I haven't set the auto-updater to update to v1.0 yet, so I will do that shortly.

    Your ideas:
    Compare btw Extensions and Data\Runtime folder: So you mean that my program should have a feature to check if anything installed in the Extensions folder is missing in the runtime folder?

    Version comparison: What exactly do you mean? There is currently a feature to check if a newer version of an installed add-on is avaliable.

    File size: The filesize of what exactly? All the MMF2AO files are very small, so I doubt it's a concern whether it will take 1 or 2 seconds to download an Add-On. <img src="/center/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

    Nice ideas though. <img src="/center/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

    Re: MMF2 Add-On Obtainer

    In mmf1.5 users frequently mixed up where runtime and edition time extension were put. Another problem was the version of the runtime and editiontime could go out of sync. Yet another problem that sometimes occured was some extension would be orphaned. Also sometimes extensions would have incorrect names.
    Finally another problem is extension developers updated extensions without updating version numbers, making it impossible to track version numbers. I personally think that every extension should have some signature to confirm that it hasn't been tampered with, just for this situation.

    As I said these are just some suggestions for the next version of the extension manager you could consider.
