[PROGRAM] X Plugin Manager : 1.60 : 2021-04-10

Post by Cycrow » Sat, 10. Apr 21, 15:08

This is the new lite version of the Plugin Manager. Its a complete rewrite from the old one due to the code being last and should completly replace it

:!: NOTE: Uninstaller any previous version below 1.40. Ie, 1.30 or any of the 1.40 beta versions before installing. The installer used has changed and u'll end up with 2 seperate copies otherwise

:!: NOTE: If you are having problems, please refer to the FAQ in the next post first

:arrow: Installing
  • To Install, download and run the program then follow the install wizard, choosing the install directory, start menu directory, etc.

    You will also get to choose the extra software to include

    • Auto Updater: Allows the program to auto update when you run the plugin manager
    • SPK Tools: A set of command line tools for using spk tools
    • VC++ Redistributable: This are required librarys for the program, might already be available. If the program doesn't load, try installing these
    • Desktop Shortcuts: Creates a shortcut on the desktop for the Plugin Manager
    Once installed, you need to run the program once to do its initial setup. This is done automatically when running for the first time. It will attempt to find your installed games and add the directories.

    If you doesn't find them, you will need to add them manually. Goto the settings menu and select "Add Directory", then browse to your game directory.

:arrow: Using
  • The program is fairly simple to use, unlike the old plugin manager, there are very few options, and most things are done automatically for you.

    If you want to use install scripts and mods that aren't signed, ie, not part of the bonus pack, then you first need to active the manager into modified mode. This is done via the settings menu

    To install new packages, simply press the "Install Package" button then select the SPK file you wish to install.
    If you have a zip file instead, you can use the "Install Archive" button instead

    This will open the install package dialog, which will display details about the package before install it.

    If you install a multi-spk file, with more than 1 package in, you will also get a list of all packages you are about to install.
:arrow: Important Information
  • Remember to close the plugin manager before running the game.
:arrow: Features Not Currently Included
  • These are the list of features that are not included in this version, but will be available in the future
    • Changable Language Display

I was able to open using microsoft edge but only after marking the download link safe.

3 other browsers including Chrome wont open any of the links but no error messages either.

Hello,

When using the plugin manager, and trying to launch x3:FL, the plugin manager disappears and the game never appears. Normally I would get an error from Steam saying that something's trying to modify the application, but no error pops up. When looking at my application logs in Windows I get this.

Faulting application name: GameLauncher.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x60818c54
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.19041.1081, time stamp: 0xb84bdad0
Exception code: 0xe0434352
Fault offset: 0x0012b4b2
Faulting process id: 0x1d8
Faulting application start time: 0x01d7707d19164aa6
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Egosoft\X Plugin Manager\GameLauncher.exe
Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll
Report Id: e966ce83-5c2c-4350-85c9-ccf7a858826d
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:

I also get the following .NET Runtime error.

Application: GameLauncher.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.Resources.MissingManifestResourceException
at System.Resources.ManifestBasedResourceGroveler.HandleResourceStreamMissing(System.String)

at System.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject(System.String)
at GameLauncher.Form1.InitializeComponent()
at GameLauncher.Form1..ctor(System.String, System.String, System.String)
at <Module>.main(System.String[])

I've uninstalled, reinstalled and uninstalled the VC++ runtime multiple times, even deleting several local files. I haven't uninstalled the game as when I go to steam and launch it, it works fine.

Not sure what else to look for. I'll check an earlier version to see if the problem persists.

Recently began to freeze at startup. Deleted, reinstalled, cleaned the registry, nothing helps. :gruebel:

At startup, it creates an old folder in which the game was previously and does not allow changing the path due to freezing. Where the program takes takes the old way to the game, I do not understand. Registry cleaned

Having the same problem, plugin manager closes but game doesn't start, have tried the usual reinstalling, restarting, removing mods and the like.

1) Install the old version
2) Run the program and update to the new version. After that, everything works.
