Thank you, Skwire!  Works like a charm.

I fixed this by unchecking this option in the Miscellaneous Settings:
Check for all white/black captures, suggesting security app interference.

Apparently that feature doesn't check for black and white!

A nice feature might be that after you push printscreen and start drawing a selection that if you hold SHIFT, it could lock the selection to SQUARE.  Kind of like in Photoshop.

Oooh.  I just tried to take a screenshot of the zoom box in ColorMania 5.0 and SC didn't like that!
It gave me an error (I'd post a screenshot, but SC won't take it since it is it's own error box)
---------------------------
Error Capturing Image
---------------------------
ERROR: No content was found in the captured image.
This can happen if you have installed a security application that is blocking Screenshot Captor from functioning.
To solve this problem, you may need to add Screenshot Captor to the list of trusted/allowed programs in your security application.
For additional information see the help file or visit the DonationCoder.com forum.
If you were intentionally capturing a blank image, disable this check on the Miscelaneous Tweaks tab of options.
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

So, I can take a screenshot of the application window, and I can draw a selection over the controls.  But it errors when I attempt to draw a selection over the color boxes:

[attach=#0]

UPDATE:

Actually, the problem is that SC won't take a screenshot of an image that is just one colour.
I'm trying to make 16x16 square blocks of solid colour from screenshots.
So I tried to do that in another program and it won't work there either.

Also, I notice that "sort checked to bottom" also sorts the list alphabetically.
That is not what I expected - I expected it not to rearrange all my carefully organized list but to just moved the checked items to the bottom.  There is "sort alphabetically" if I wanted automatic sorting.

Say, Skwire, in the screenshot at the top, you have the sort-checked-to-top and sort-checked-to-bottom buttons in your toolbar.  How can I have that?  My commands are trapped inside a dropdown-menu-button.
7  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SC post-capture run on: November 14, 2014, 05:00:42 PM
True, a startup manager is a workaround.
Anyway, I'm happy using the batch file.
Thanks y'all!

That sounds like a good, reasonable solution.  I'm surprised I didn't think of it.   Wink
9  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SC post-capture run on: November 14, 2014, 10:34:52 AM
Mouser, aaawwww, I don't want to do it manually!  I want it to be working when I want it to with the least amount of advertance.

Although the commands won't work right from SC, the batch file trick does work.  Thanks for the idea, Mouser!
Batch file:
[copy or print]
copy %1 f:\captures
pause
SC:
[copy or print]
c:\arx\captures.bat "%file%" /winmin
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / SC post-capture run on: November 14, 2014, 09:47:04 AM
Sorry, I'm sort of combining two topics here.

I have SC installed on a virtualbox Windows 7 machine.
So I need the capture folder to be in that system's virtual share folder so I can fetch the images from my regular computer.
Problem is that SC gets launched before the sharefolder is connected and (I think this is the what) causes SC to crash and even an uninstall won't fix it unless you scrap the previous settings.
[attachimg=1]

So my solultion is to use the post-capture options.
In the post-capture options, I want to have SC automatically move the just-taken-screenshot to the virtual share folder (that would be connected now).
Problem is that these commands don't seem to do anything.

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. copy "%file%"  f:\captures\
  2. copy "c:\captures\%file%"  f:\captures\

Am I doing something wrong or does it just not work?

It's real fun!  I hope somebody wants to make it!
12  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Program Idea: Fungus for Windows on: October 27, 2014, 10:55:30 PM
Hi, coding fellows!

Here is an idea dear to my heart.  A long time ago I had a Mac (yeah...) and a game called "Fungus".  It was a wonderful game - one of those simple games that you love and can play over and over and never get bored of.  But it disappeared.  Later someone revived it and called it "MacFungus" and then there was a network version called "NetFungus" - all Mac games.

I am dreaming of a Fungus game for Windows, and I am hoping someone will write it for the NANY!

You are a fungus, and the goal of the game is to consume your opponent (wonderful, no?).

Soooo, the gameboard is square, and you can have from two to four players; if you don't have that many players, the computer can replace someone.

The gameboard is a grid (like minesweeper in a way), and each player starts off with just their fungus' brain (a sort of smiley face), and each player has their own colour.
At the beginning of each player's turn, he receives a randomly generated piece - a shape - like a tetris block.  This block he can place as an addition to his fungus body.  He can only place the block in such a way that it touches his own fungus.  You can rotate this block before you place it.

 - If a player manages to get any of his opponent's body between (as in touching on two sides) two of his own body's appendages (made with the random shapes) his fungus "takes over" all the fungus between those shapes, and so the consumed parts change to the colour of the consumer.
 - If a player manages to cut his opponent into two parts, the part without the brain dies and disappears.
 - If a players brain gets consumed, his game is over and his entire fungus body becomes part of the consumer.

Then there is the "tooth" that you may receive instead of a fungus-body-growth-piece.  With a tooth, you can bite your opponent and take a tile from him.  This lets you inject your fungus into part of the opponent and allows you to get an appendage on one side and allows for the strategy necessary to consume the other guys.  You don't have to use a tooth, and you can save them.

 - Then there are "Big Bites" - you save up three tooths and use them all at once to take out 3 blocks from your opponent at once instead of just one.
 - In the "MacFungus" game, if you got any of your fungus into one of the four corners, you get a bonus tooth.
 - There are sound effects.  When you use a tooth, the game makes a chomping sound.  If you surround a part of your opponent and consume it, you get a chewing and munching sound.  The best is when you get a bite followed by the munching sound.

To win the game, you must be the only player left alive.

I scavenged a few old screenshots from "MacFungus" that I found on the internet.  I can't find any images of the original "Fungus" - but I know that that game dates back to 1990 at least.
See my attachments for screenshots.

I am interested to assist by way of consultation!  It's been a long time since I played this game, but it doesn't exist any more, and I would love to have it for Windows.

I have been using FileMenuTools.  It is free and quite versatile.  I wish it could manage ALL the items in the context menu like Mmmm  however.  It will let you remove them, but you can't regroup them like you could in Mmmm.

Great!  Thanks, Mouser.  I've watched the NANY's before because I was afraid of publishing my software on account of the extra work it brings.  But I have something that is pretty complete, so it might not be so bad.  I'll try to make my entry in the next week or so.
15  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 08, 2014, 10:31:17 PM
Well, what about an application that I've put on a webpage that noone knows about - not even Google, but is technically publicly accessible?  I have a nice program that I've spent a lot of time on that virtually noone knows about and isn't on any of the freeware sites and can't be found in Google - does that count as unpublished?  Mouser, I've sent you the link to my page before.

If I have an unpublished program that I have already made, can I enter it in NANY?  Should I start a new thread for it?

Ha ha.  Did some spammer just *bump* my thread?
18  DonationCoder.com Software / BrowserTraySwitch / Re: Browser tray switch & firefox Profiles on: July 23, 2014, 10:02:03 PM
Yes.  Firefox will allow that.  But it doesn't make any difference what that is if you run multiple instances.  Firefox's setting only determines which profile gets loaded if you don't choose one.  It doesn't set which instance is the system's default Firefox browser.  That's the problem.  If I could do this using Firefox's own settings, I'd have done it already.  This is going to involve a trick of some sort that isn't there yet.  And I don't blame you if you don't want to get into it!  I just thought I would ask, because it's something that folks, I'm sure, would want and use, but doesn't exist yet.
19  DonationCoder.com Software / BrowserTraySwitch / Re: Browser tray switch & firefox Profiles on: July 23, 2014, 09:16:08 PM
Hi, Mouser.  I need a way to be able to choose which instance of Firefox is the current default browser.  Firefox is the system's current default browser, but I don't have any way of deciding which instance is that default.  (Instance meaning that I run two Firefoxes with different profiles).

Right now the only way I can do that is to exit all instances and then start them in a particular order - the first one launched becomes default.
20  DonationCoder.com Software / BrowserTraySwitch / Re: Browser tray switch & firefox Profiles on: July 23, 2014, 09:33:09 AM
Hello again, Mouser.  Have you thought about this any?

I run two instances of Firefox, and Firefox is the default browser on my system.  But only the first-launched instance will ever accept to open links from outside programs (such as thunderbird).  So, if I close that instance, then I no longer have any default browser open, even though the second instance is still running.   

This is a real pain.  If browser-tray-switch could solve this, I would jump up and down for joy!

Are you using DHCP?  Each laptop has a different MAC address for it's wired card and for its wireless card.  You have to enter both addresses in your DHCP configuration.
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: URL Rewrite Problem on: June 21, 2014, 11:22:53 AM
Ah, the regex did, indeed help - thank you very much.  I tried with some escapes but was having troubles.
Now it rewrites to the site correctly, whether being http or https.


However, I still have a problem.
If I type https://sub2.domain/page_from_sub1
it rewrites to
https://sub1.domain/page_from_sub1

It is supposed to get my my error page because page_from_sub1 does not exist on sub2.
How do I fix that?

The regex is correct. http://sub2.domain never matches the regex.  So why is it getting rewritten?
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: URL Rewrite Problem on: June 21, 2014, 10:10:30 AM
Thanks for your help. 

However, this isn't a coding issue - I'm not writing this into the aspx code.  The System is IIS7, and I am using the webserver's GUI to rewrite the URL for incoming http requests.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: URL Rewrite Problem on: June 21, 2014, 08:53:12 AM
@Renegade,  I have a url-rewrite module already installed and working in my IIS.  I can't figure out how to get the settings and regex right.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / URL Rewrite Problem on: June 19, 2014, 09:07:29 AM
Hello, folks.

I need some help with a problem on my webserver involving url-rewrite and redirection in my IIS7.  I made a post at ServerFault, but noone is hardly even viewing it.

Here is the contents of my post there:

We have our own domain and have several subdomains. One of the sites needs to be accessed only via SSL, but people are allowed to type http and still arrive there. The URL-Rewrite forces the http into https.

So my two subdomains are: sub1.domain.org and sub2.domain.org.

Thus, if I type

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. http://sub1.domain.org/page_on_domain1

it is rewritten to

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. https://sub1.domain.org/page_on_domain1

-which is correct. But if I do this (which is not possible - page_on_domain1 does not exist on sub2.domain.org:

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. https://sub2.domain.org/page_on_domain1

My url-rewrite rule seems to work properly, but I want that last address to give me an error page instead, since the page doesn't exist on that subdomain.

I am testing this in Firefox on Windows 7 x64 Pro.

My url-rewrite rule is as follows (I am doing it through the IIS7 GUI):

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. Requested URL:  Matches the Pattern:  (*)  Using Regular Expressions (ignore case)
  2. Conditions:  Match All:  Input:  {HTTPS}  Matches the Pattern:  ^Off$
  3. Redirect URL:  https://sub1.domain.org/{REQUEST_URI}

Now, I've tried changing the Requested URL Pattern to: .*sub1.domain.org/.* but the regex tester in IIS7 says it doesn't match against https://sub1.domain.org - I don't understand that.

How can I keep the rewrite of http to https for sub1.domain.org, but not have any effect at all on sub2.domain.org ??

I've been stuck on this for a long time.  This is my first ever post to the Living Room.
Thank you!
