Skwire Empire / Re: Release: Arti (Aspect Ratio Tool for Images)

The actual twenty pictures here are standard jpg pics from He Qi's site:

I download all 84 images from that site and had no problems loading them into Arti  :huh: :

The problem could of course be the filenames. I wonder if Arti has been "Unicoded"?

Arti is fully Unicode capable:


It didn't work in my setup with merely twenty jpg pictures.

Are those images generic enough that you could send them to me so I can test with them?

Should be fixed now:

Nice.  I have mpd installed on one of Raspberry Pi so I'll try to find some time to give this a try.   :Thmbsup:

I have a folder with 12,000 pictures.. when I run Arti it does a great job for 1,200 pictures aprox and then it crashes   

Is there any way to make it work for more pictures?

There's no image number limit in ARTI.  I've tested it with several thousand images, and it seems to work fine for me.  Here's a screenshot:


Now, that said, can you tell if it's crashing on the same image every time?  If you can't, can you experiment a bit with smaller groups of images and try to narrow down if it's crashing on a particular image?

I have no way of testing this since I do not have that game, but you can try the following:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. #IfWinActive, ahk_exe GemsOfWar.exe
  2. {
  3.     XButton1::Esc  ; XButton1 is typically the fourth mouse button.  XButton2 is typically the fifth mouse button.
  4. }

Also, keep in mind that many games try to detect this sort of behaviour and will actively prevent it from working.

icon order

I run Windows 7 and can drag my tray icons (all of them, not just sWeather's) around to re-order them.  Have you tried that, by chance?  Once I do that, the icons, for the most part, stay in the order I've chosen.  Sometimes they get out of whack, but not too often.

I run separate work and home profiles, as both have certain logins that are unique to them (Microsoft account is the one that I can't do without)

Gotcha, I can see how that would be useful.   :up:

FWIW, I use, and really like, Vivaldi, but don't miss the multiple profiles feature.  I never really used them in Chrome or Firefox, either.

Looks very cool.

Agreed. This looks great, @hugo nabais.  I'll give it a try soon.

Create a file named PIN.txt and write a number into it.

That's the part I needed to know, thanks.  Did I miss that in the docs somewhere?

Tuxman, can you explain how the PIN option works?  Please and thank you.

sWeather is unable to establish a connection to the weather server. N/A showing everywhere. Have tried with and without https mode. Has been working fine for a couple of years now.
Was there another change to the Yahoo API? has no weather data so it may not be an API issue.

Hello, dhry and march12234, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :)

From what I can tell, the Yahoo! Weather API was down for a bit, but appears to be working for me at this time.  If this happens again, go here and click the test button:
If the query comes back with "null," you know the problem is not with sWeather.   :Thmbsup:

All we had (middle of 1990) was a lousy Pc acting as Server connected over 16port switch running Linux Bash.

Hahaha...don't feel so bad.  My first LAN party, such as it was, was myself, my brother, and two friends, in my living room with an eight port hub, i.e., it wasn't even a switch!.  This was back in the dial-up days so to be able to play our favourite multiplayer games, without any lag, it was a life-altering experience at the time.

@skwire Your setup remind me on my LANparty days with Pc

I used to throw LAN parties back in the day, too.  The following pics are circa 2000-2001.




I love reading articles like this.  Great game; still own it and the N64.   For multiplayer, I cobbled together a 4-way audio/video splitter to connect to four separate TVs (CRTs, of course!).  I then cut cardboard pieces to cover each TV's non-player screens so each player couldn't see where all the other players were.   :Thmbsup:  Get a group of friends together and it was hours of utter mayhem and shit-talking.  Damnit, I wish I had a picture of that setup.    :P

I found and confirmed the problem. Pushing 1.1.0b4 to AMO. Still considered experimental.

I grabbed 1.1.0b5 from the extension page and it seems to have fixed the issue.  I didn't check every bookmark but spot checks here and there looked good.   :Thmbsup:  Thank you for the fix.   :D

I will look into it in 28 hours!

No worries.  Cheers.

I'll be out of town until tomorrow, but what I need for a reasonable fix is, at least, a useful error message.

Unfortunately, there does not appear to be one.

Does the server print anything while you're using Firefox?

I don't see anything, but I might not be looking in the right place.

Does Firefox's error console (F12...) tell you anything after clicking Download?

I looked through all the tabs of the dev console but didn't see anything pertaining to ymarks.  Again, though, I might be looking in the wrong place.

Is there a pop-up from the extension?


I suspect that Firefox 61+ has made changes... do you happen to have that version?

Yes, as above, I'm running Firefox v61.0.2.
