Looking for some 'Addons Linker' friends for a little test

Recommended Posts

Hello 🍻

As some of you may remember , the AL adventure started here and was meant for a few users visiting this forum that might find it useful. It has, since then, grown up way too much and, with all possible different users configurations and available options, i need a bit of help testing before releasing a new official version 😵.

I post here below a new EXE (it's just an updated EXE, you need all other files from the FS.TO site) so that maybe some of you, advanced users, might test it and tell me if i broke something. Most of you won't need the new features but, even if you use it as you always did without testing any the new stuff it would just ensure that nothing is broken. All changes are based on requests but, most requests i get, don't necessarly appeal to the masses.

--> LInk : https://www.filemail.com/d/alfmhgguhormzim

I will probably finish up a few little things and publish a new official version tomorrow so if a few guys have used it in advance and haven't seen any groundbreaking issues it will give me more confidence 🧐

There is no risk in testing the new EXE, if you have issue with it you can revert back to the official one, they are 100% interchangeable.

Also a chance for a little last minute request 🤞 if something bothers you or if you'd like to see something added in the upcoming version (although i can't promise anything because this changes are usually not as simple as it sometimes seems).

Feel free to tell me if something is just badly implemented, i have large shoulders and good ears 😁😁

Thanks you as always 🍻

------
Quickly made-up changes list (probably hard to understand 🤑 everything just by reading it, but if something seems interesting to you and you can't figure it out just ask) :

  • [FIX] Several fixes based on issues reported since last release
  • [NEW] 'Program profiles' let you specify groups of programs to launch when the simulator starts (if simulator is started via AL). If you have no need for that, you can hide the 'profile selector list' visible in the toolbar in the options screen ('UI options' tab). The profiles can be created below the field where you can specify the 'programs to launch' (options screen)
  • [NEW] New option to specify that an addon should automatically be deactivated when another one is activated (sort of 'reverse dependency'). Available in the right click menu (Dependencies -> 'Set addons to disable when this addon is enabled')
  • [NEW] New option to disable all addons included in a preset (available in the 'presets buttons' at the bottom and in the 'preset management screen')
  • [NEW] New option to create an empty preset (available in toolbar / right click menu / presets buttons at the bottom)
  • [NEW] Added the 'cumulative presets apply button' and 'disable addons in preset' in the 'preset management screen'
  • [NEW] New column 'disable' in the preset creation screen (checking it will deactivate the addon when the preset is applied)
  • [NEW] New column 'In preset' in the main view showing in which preset(s) an addon is included
  • [NEW] Clicking on the little 'boxes' below the community folder grid will auto filter the items matching the selected box (invalid links, external links, ...)
  • [IMPROVED] When using the 'search box' feature, folders containing the found items will automatically be expanded
  • [IMPROVED] In the launch programs parameters it's not possible to force 'kill the process' when the sim closes (might be useful if the standard way of closing apps doesn't work for some programs)
  • [IMPROVED] The 'locate existing addon' option now also supports RAR and 7Zip files
  • [IMPROVED] Launching the program when it's already launched will bring back the already opened screen back to front (previously it would just show a message box indicating that the program was already running, note that the message box if still shown if you have enabled the rarely used 'send to tray' option)
  • [MINI] Option to hide to preset selection list in the main toolbar at the top, the preset selection list is now automatically hidden if you have enable the option 'Show preset selection screen when launching the sim'
  • [MINI] Added a 'delete this addon' button on the 'Set custom data' screen
  • [MISC] Probably a few more minor things i forgot about...

Another long time Linker reporting in! Do you want feedback in this thread or by PM?

Arrrgh! Defender flags the DL file as a virus. Tried the torrent as well - same problem. I'll disable Defender temporarily and try again.

nah you should only use the big blue button 'download file' don't use the other options and those install anything for sure .. those free file sharing site might add some adverts that trigger 'defender' to react. In doubt just don't download it .... Sorry for that 😟

Been using filemail to share for some time now but maybe time to change .... (unless it's really the EXE that it doesn't like because it's not digitally signed)

the original zip i uploaded should not trigger any warning -> https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/96164dae9f5751f092bd19650312d99137dc46e77278dd76810fde553bb6e80e?nocache=1

Not directly related to this version, but something I've had in mind for some time. Would it be difficult to make direct icons for 2 or 3 user presets in the menu bar (in addition to the none and all icons)?

Kind regards, Michael

Edit: I see this is virtually implemented in the new version with the preset selection line. Well done!

Thanks! I found the problem was that Defender was being triggered only when using IDM (Internet Download Manager - a brilliant utility). When forcing a download bypassing IDM then Defender stays quiet. Now to go give it a whirl!!

I have one request: a separate column/field for manual entry of an "Update" date. I currently datestamp every addon that I install with an entry at the beginning of the description field. The beauty of this is that you can sort addons on that field and root out the latest installed addons if you have CTDs or some sort of an addon clash.

Apart from the functions that the Linker does so well, I find that it's incredibly useful when things go wrong - as you can deactivate whole blocks of addons at a stroke, then carry on debugging.

A separate/manual date field would be great to have - especially as addon creators very rarely use the "Created by" and "Update date" entries in the XML files.

The new version has worked fine on my first couple of tests - though I admit I haven't had time to delve into the new features/fixes yet 😉

As ever - I'm really grateful for all the work you've put in to give us this amazing tool.

Thank you for your dedication to this hobby and the time you spend improving your already brilliant software which I use on each flight.

May i please ask if it would be at all possible to start a programme (namely AIG TC) ONLY after the flight has been selected on the world map and we proceed to load the flight (so as to keep time sync)? Thank you for considering.

Hello @Bad_T and many thanks for your hard work so far !

One "bug" I have is an exception I recieve when my PC wakes up from stanby. I usually let AL open and when the PC wakes up I get the following:

Screenshot-2023-06-10-074708.png

The content of the exception follows below (sorry don't kno how I can collapse the code window here in that forum)

 

 

And I have a wish, please:

Add an option for the addons map, where I can hide permanently the table on the lower of the map so that I can have just the pure map without the table.

I know about "hide grid and option panel" but this is not permanent.

many thanks for one of the most important tools for MSFS!!!

Thank you all for your feedback 💗

@pmb: the presets selection list in the toolbar is only to apply automatically a preset when you launch the sim, otherwise, to apply a specific preset (standalone or cumulative) you would need to use the selection list at the bottom of the main view, so it's not exactly what you want if i understand correctly. Adding 'favorites' in the toolbar would probably be possible, i wrote that down for a future version.

@Adamski_NZ : ah nice if you could get the file safely, maybe i should use google drive or something like that, probably less  prone to those warnings. The 'created by' and 'update date' are never filled by the addon creator that info comes from the windows system file properties (the same you would see in Windows explorer), if you see both columns empty it's because you have not checked the option 'enable file stats' in the options screen. If you check that option, you should see them without the need to type them yourself manually. The option is unchecked by default because it can slightly increase the loading time if you have tons of addons. Let me know if that option is ok for you.

@Bernard Ducret : have you tried the 'wait form simconnect' option in the 'programs launch parameters, does that help maybe ? That should launch the program only when the sim is initialized so usually everything should be ok. I have never noticed time sync issue with AIG TC but maybe i didn't pay attention. I need to check a bit more. I'm not sure if there is a way to know properly that the flight is loading though.

@guenseli : oops that error 'out of memory' seems very strange if it happens when the PC wakes up, it's probably very hard to pinpoint because it seems due to internal 'components draw mechanisms' and not really to the code i wrote myself. Not sure what our PCs do when they go to sleep 🙈, I will do a little search, hopefully i'll find something. I will add a setting that remembers the 'hide grid and option panel' so if you hide it it will remain hidden until you unhide it manually, that should be quickly done and can be included in this version.


Thanks again all ! 🍻

Hi,

I would like to try it, but Windows 11 Security says that the file contains a virus. So, I can't download it.

Any hint?

Thank you

Well, finally... I could download it.

I'm going to try it!

Thank you.

@pmb: the presets selection list in the toolbar is only to apply automatically a preset when you launch the sim, otherwise, to apply a specific preset (standalone or cumulative) you would need to use the selection list at the bottom of the main view, so it's not exactly what you want if i understand correctly. Adding 'favorites' in the toolbar would probably be possible, i wrote that down for a future version.

That's indeed what I'm looking for. Not a paramouint feature but rather nice to have.

No issues with normal use of the test version so far.

Kind regards, Michael

For info, i have now uploaded a new official version on the flightsim.to site, so do not grab the updated EXE from here anymore because the one on FS.TO contains a few more fixes.

Thank you as always to all the friendly testers 👍🍻

I just grabbed it ... are you sure you've linked the correct file/archive? The one I just downloaded was v19 (0.19.8395.28 December 26, 2022 - 44.06 MB) ... not v20!
