Great Program. I have one suggestion that would make it perfect. When I click on the GUI and use my scroll wheel it defaults to the game directory drop down and refreshes the mod list. Its a small thing but if you ever make an update I hope you would include defaulting it to the mods list as a fix.

Another thing, it would also be handy to have a check box where I could specify Launch my selected Game in Full Screen or Windowed Mode. I alternate between the two choices and it would be another nice feature.

YOU ROCK!

Hey...is there anyway to have the manager show mod conflicts? due to how many mods are packaged up, its very difficult sometimes to see what will conflict with eachother, and as far as I know there's currently no easy way to tell this.

I think one of the additional tools of the PM can show potential conflicts between scripts, like using the same command slots or wares. (I guess it was the Package explorer!? Really haven't used it in quite a while.) Not sure what the exact capabilities are though. There is, however, mr.bear's Mod conflict viewer, which from the screenshots alone looks interesting. I haven't used it myself though, so I cannot tell how good it works.

PostPosted: Sat, 1. Apr 17, 15:00    Post subject: Please help! Where are my save files? Reply with quote Print

So I installed this Plugin Manager to try out a script. During installataion I let it enable save game manager. Now I can't find my saves.

I cant believe my save files are simply gone so please help me recover them. I googled for information about this and found some posts by other people that encountered the same issue. However, for none of these people the problem was resolved. They just accepted they lost their saves and started over. I invested alot of time and do not want to accept that my saves are simply gone.

The save folder where the saves used to be is simply empty and there are no *.sav files anywhere on the hard drive. So I assume the plugin manager comressed the files or something. I never enabled "modified" mode in the manager or actually used any plugins because I realized I didnt want to flag my saves as "modified" and rather just stick with the vanilla version.

So how do I recover my save files now?

Shouldnt this plugin manager make backups of the saves before it starts manipulating them?

In hindsight I should have made backups of my save files before enabling some "save game manager", sure. But still, this is unacceptable. Please help.

I did some experimentation with the save game manager and I think I know how my files dissappeared. I am not 100% sure though so if anyone still has an idea how to recover my save files let me know.

When you enable save game manager and add the directory to the plugin manager, the save files are moved from the save folder in the documents folder. I think plugin manager moves the files into its folder in the game directory. Then if you remove the directory from within plugin manager, it restores the save files to the normal save folder in the documents folder. But if you disable save game manager before you remove the directory from withing the plugin manager, your save are lost forever it seems.

In a way it's my own fault for losing my save files. But mainly, I think the Plugin Manager is to blame. It shouldnt be possible for the Plugin Manager to permanently lose save files. This needs to be adressed. A safer way of handling the save files is needed or at least a warning that the save files should be backed up manually before enabling save game manager. Crying or Very sad How was I supposed to know that my save files would be removed? When i removed the directory from within plugin manager, I assumed only scripts/plugins would be removed, not save games too. Not good.

Anyways, if someone still has any ideas how to restore my save files, please let me know.

Having an issue where when i launch the X-Universe Plugin Manager Lite it just comes up with a file explorer menu and no actual UI. I go to where my download is for the Abandoned Ships mod and it doesn't even show up in that file explorer although it's a .spk file type. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
System is Windows 10

if its coming up with the file explorer it means it couldn't find an installed game. You need to select the exe of the game then the main gui should load up

Ok, so I have a sound file, so how to I use it to change the engine sound of a ship?

(in case you're curious, I am trying to modify the engine sound of a Battlecrab from Babylon 5 to make it 'scream' like it did on TV)

See what Cycrow wrote a couple of posts above. (You have to select your game installation directory.)

Cycrow, very odd question for you. How does your plugin manager handle adding file permissions? I went to try and delete your plugin files off out of the directory, and it was saying I don't have permission to even view the contents of the files. I was wondering if you had any insight into this. I would much rather not have to re-image my pc (I HATE having files not under my control, and it is in the steam directory for the game). Thanks!

It doesn't do anything special with file permissions. And just uses windows for any file handling.

its possible that the file has been locked. Usually when any software uses a file, windows puts a lock on it to prevent it from being deleted until the software finishes.

make sure the plugin manager is closed, also check task manager to make sure its not running there too (just incase it didn't fully close and is still running in the background).

Also, you could try rebooting, then deleting the file. Rebooting should clear any of the software locks.

finally if that doesn't work, then a program like Unlocker might be able to delete the file
