I just wanted to say thanks exogenesis for all the hard work in putting this super program together.

Much appreciated. :D

For information: Download didn't work from my Google Chrome browser, it downloaded a smaller sized corrupt file. Did work from IE7 though.

Oh, great work.

Many thanks for all the hard work! :thumb_up:
I particularly like the new option to see turrets' fields of fire.

Thankyou exogenesis. Trying this on for size now... WOW! I love the b/g space effect. And this version seems to have more tools. I'm glad I've seen most of the ships in X3:TC by now because it's hard not to look at every one of them now. That could be a spoiler. :o Another is the weapon cones, showing where every ships weakest point is. Sweet.
You have designed an awesome tool for the community. Thanks a bunch.

[EDIT for more cool stuff] The cockpit/turret views are awesome , and some are surprising ie: where you're sitting exactly while flying in your ship.
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.

Interesting that 'invalid args' went, not sure I can explain that.
Good to hear it works on Vista64.
A) Loading .bod/.bob files without loading the game-files - difficult, since it needs to know where e.g. bod-scene component bod/bob files are in the cat files,
but you're right it wouldn't need to parse the T*.txt game-files- maybe I'll add a 'quick load' sticky option.
B) Multithreading - haven't thought about that yet, don't think it would help tbh.
The spray shop slowness is due to it actually changing the textures in memory on-the-fly, it shouldn't affect the final rendering fame rate.
Actually since textures got a lot bigger in TC (4x typical), this is a lot slower than it was in Reunion.
If I could find out how to use the Egosoft-shader light-rendering correctly, this would be very much quicker, cos it would be the same as in-game (ie instantaneous).

ianrobo75 : can't explain that, but I haven't approached Chrome with a long barge pole myself ;)

ephemeron : cheers *has another swig of beer*

At what point does that appear - after loading the game-files, or when loading a ship?


surferx : cheers *has another swig of beer*
These extra features are what took me so long to get a release out.

Downloaded that pluginmanager.cat, thanks. Seems a bit small to contain much, will have a test

I had the same problem. I have a few fake patches, scripts and 2 mods. What worked for me is leaving the Plugin Manager opened and minimized it. It loads unmodded, mod1, and mod2. Works like a champ.

exogenesis, awsome program dude, Thank you.

After I originally submitted the post I thought it was the wrong file. I deleted the post so I could go and check it without leaving a link to a possible wrong file.
exogenesis wrote:Getting a 'not a valid JPEG file' from the filefactory download 'screenshot.jpg'
Strange. After I saved the screenie to the desktop I opened it with the 'Windows Picture and Fax Viewer' without any problems. After I uploaded it, I dl it to check to see if the linky was OK. It also opened.

Updated to Ashley v2.5. Crashes at the same point as v1.32.

You assume correctly. The ships appear correctly in the game.

I can also confirm that this fixes the problem (for me at least)

Pretty sure when playing X3:R I spent more time using the models viewer than I did playing the actual game. Now with all these sweet new features I might never manage to start X3:TC again! :lol:

that's really odd about needing pluginmanager open, implies a system dll version problem - I'll investigate

MBD
thanks for the info, will investigate, it's probable I've only tested Ashley v2.3 XTM specific, not the v2.5 'general' version.

dalin80
What sort of error do you get with the K & J ?

'illegal operation'

but its only intermittent , killing the app and restarting can get it working again 50% of the time.

a) sorry, that may have been bad phrasing on my part. I was just suggesting adding a gate to the list of things that can be opened within the viewer rather than having to point the viewer to it's files manually.

You don't need to leave Pluginmanager open. For me it works perfectly, when I delete or temporarily move 0X.cat and *.dat files, which are created by the manager, to another directory. Maybe the slightly modified versions of TWareT.txt and/or TWareN.txt inside the *.cat cause the crash.
