units.csv beta release thread

Post by JasonStiletto »

beta... for the units.csv editor.. is here

vsdataboy-linux32.zip
vsdataboy-win32.zip

all basic functionality implemented. Download it, put it in the vegastrike data directory, or probably wherever your vs app happens to be (less sure) and it should run. Let me know if anything doesn't work. Or if you find a crash I didn't. Or alternately, let me know of anything it doesn't do that you'd like it to.

gtk1 linux and winapi win32 app included. If for some reason the linux app doesn't work with your setup (and it should) if you've got wine the win32 version will run.

source coming later after some clean up.

maybe it needs a mascot. I have no art in my soul, only code.

I would ultimately like it to be able to edit most things (data wise) VS, but I donno if I have that kind of commitment.

A Step Into Oblivion

Dreams of things that will never be,
Songs of thoughts only I can hear,
Leave me be to sleep forever,
To dream my dreams,
And sing my hymns,
Of things that will never be...

let me know of any bugs or potentially useful features. It's not like I have no ideas, but the things I will do with it are probably not everything that can or should be done with it.

sine it figures out where the directory is the same way the game does, basically, if you find Vegastrike.exe on your system and run it from the directory that it's in, it should work. Likewise, if you run it from inside the data4.x or data directory, it would also work. Since I have only run vegastrike via direct SVN download, I'm not sure where it places them by default.

Still working on the newer versions of both of my utilities. Should be out inside of two weeks.

Can we get that source soon, please? Or at least a statically compiled version? Your Linux binary is horribly broken on my Debian (unstable) system. It runs, but after I poke the directory selection control a couple times to get it to actually find the files (the first time, it looks for .units/units.csv), it loads units.csv (and I can see data running through the text fields). But as soon as it's done, it pops up a window that says "Access violation. ok to ignore and risk data corruption. cancel to kill the program". If I let it continue, no matter what I select in the index, it shows me the stats for an AsteroidFighterBase.

So you can debug that, or you can provide source and I can try compiling it :P

I could try it under Wine, but I don't drink. :P Seriously, I'd much rather have source code, so if there's some minor change in units.csv, the program can be updated even if you've lost interest in Vegastrike and aren't maintaining it anymore. This happened to VSnav, with the save file format.

BTW, I'm making a list of out-of-game tools for vegastrike, focusing on stuff players might use while playing. vsdataboy does such a good job of displaying stats that I'm including it. http://vegastrike.sourceforge.net/wiki/OOG_Tools
(Although probably a good spreadsheet would be used more, since you could sort it and see multiple rows at once.) But if you are attacked by some ships and you can't remember whether they tore you apart last time or not, vsdataboy might be just the trick.

I'm getting the 'Access violation...' message too, though I'm using the Windows version on windows 2k.

after I select 'OK', I get the following error -

Runtime error 217 at $004D3429

VSnav actually isn't quite in that state. I have the source, and I made some fixes and feature additions to it (long ago), but I'm not sure if I can release them. (It's a gray issue, so there's flexibility, but I just don't want to step on anyone's toes.)

I've tried contacting iqAuto about that, but we've both been pretty inactive. Plus, even once I eventually return to Vega Strike, I probably won't want to continue developing VSnav in its current state. I've moved from Perl to Ruby, and looking at Perl code gives me headaches now. ;)

If it's still the best tool for the job, though, I might consider porting it, or releasing the Perl version for someone else to maintain.

working on a release with source, will take a few days because I stopped in the middle of a changeover.
