26  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: [BUG] Pixelate sometimes fails on pixelating text on: June 26, 2015, 06:37:14 PM
aryq's clue was significant and your follow up explained the problem; here's what's happening:

SC is trying to determine which backround areas of the window are (semi) transparent.  Whatever this bug is that is causing the window to move during this, is making SC think there is some partial transparency over that entire area of the window, so that the text all appears as semi-transparent to SC (even though when you look at it you dont see the effect).

So when the pixelate effect occurs, its not "clearing" the transparency, and so the pixelatated regions have some partial transparency where the text was.

So here's what to do:

1. I'll consider that a bug and have pixelate always completely clear any transparency when pixelating.  I'll try to have an SC update in the next week.
2. In the meantime, either fix whatever weirdness is causing the window to move, or to disable this transparency detection (which by the way will speed up capture), from here:
[attach=1]

Let us know if that fixes it for new captures.

You could also do this for existing captures: Before applying pixelate or similar effects, choose 'Merge Background Transparency' from the objects menu.  That will remove any transparency from the image.

skajfes has it exactly right -- i will try to have a fix soon.

You can't add imgur to SC built-in tool yet, but i'll look into adding it.
But you should be able to use ImageShack if you just clear any values in the Service Options tab of the SC Uploader.
29  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: ShareX link in Options > Tools is defunct on: June 25, 2015, 09:20:36 PM
ImageShack should work fine with Screenshot Captor, right out of the box.  No need to register, put any username, password, or pay anything.
30  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: ShareX link in Options > Tools is defunct on: June 25, 2015, 08:57:50 PM
Thanks, I will fix.
It's useful to note however, that SC now has a very good built-in upload to a free image hosting service, so there is little reason to need to use ShareX with it anymore.

Latest cabinet photos:
[attachthumb=1]
[attachthumb=2]
[attachthumb=3]

Note 1: The cabinet has not yet been "finished" -- i just wanted to see what it would look like -- i have to remove everything and put many coats of polyeurethane on to give it some sheen and protect the wood.

Note 2: It's significantly darker than I planned/wanted -- I tested dozens of stain formulas but in the end i got carried away.  I think lighter would have been more interesting but perhaps this will turn out to be ok.

Note 3: You'll notice on the top view two black lines -- that was a last minute improvisation to fix what were white-unstained lines caused by wood putty between the face frame and carcass, and white glue connecting to strips of veneer on the plywood.

Note 4: If you look at photo 2 you can see gray dots where nail holes are -- I made a big mistake by filling nail holes and gaps with "stainable" (hah!) wood putty before staining.  Bad mistake.  I've since learned the proper way to do it is to sink the nails, then stain, THEN fill with colored crayon, etc.  I did what i have done when painting when the putty can be sanded down and covered -- not appropriate for staining.

What is your Screenshot path?  Can you change that to someplace in your documents?
(choose the first item in the GoTo menu to change it).
33  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Path to ScreenshotCaptor settings can't be modified on: June 23, 2015, 11:03:33 AM
It does sound like you may have installed the portable version on your deskop -- or for some other reason it's having trouble saving files where it wants to.
The easiest solution might be to install the normal version of Screenshot Captor -- you can even tell it at the time of installation to erase any previous settings to start from scratch.
You can also just delete the ConfigDir.ini file in the Program Files x86\Screenshot Captor directory to use default.

To summarize, if you install Screenshot Captor and do not mess with the ConfigDir.ini file, it will store all settings and those subdirectories under your Documents directory.

You can also email if you still get stuck (mouser@donationcoder.com)

I read through the "game rules" -- very interesting!! I didn't quite follow all of the resolution rules stuff, but I loved the idea of an AI being at the center of it.. So I take it this is kind of a role-playing game where the AI player makes up scenarios and guides play and decides subjectively how to tell and interesting story full of conflict?  I think the subject matter of colonizatio and survival is a fascinating one for an RPG.

Where do you see the 'TIP: Use blend mode "multiple"'?
37  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: (Beginner) Where is "Blend mode "Multiple"?? on: June 19, 2015, 09:04:42 PM
Hi plehuntl.

It sounds like maybe some of the text is being cut off on the screen..

After you select the highlighter box you should see a combo box on the right hand panel that says "Blend Mode" and one of those options should be "Multiply":

There's a guy in my church who built his own kitchen cabinets and finished them all with rattle-cans of spray lacquer. They look great.
i bought some spray cans of lacquer but read that they are not good on very large pieces because the "seams" can be seen when the piece is that large.

after reading everything on the internet about finishing and testing every kind of finish, im now oscilating between spraying lacquer and trying a wipe-on poly.  testing some wipe-on poly now..
40  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software for planning wood bookcases/cabinets/tables etc? on: June 19, 2015, 12:12:26 PM
the only thing left for me to decide is if i'm going to try to brush on a finish or buy a sprayer..
41  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Rock Paper Shotgun: 25 Best Co-Op (video) Games Ever Made on: June 19, 2015, 10:45:33 AM
I'm always interested in reading about co-op games, here's a nice recent list from one of my favorite gaming blogs, Rock Paper Shotgun.  For me, the game of choice is Sniper Elite 2.

Sometimes you need a hand to hold, so we’ve compiled a list of the 25 best co-op games to play on PC with a headset-wearing friend or a muted stranger.

Whether solving puzzles, sneaking, shooting zombies or stabbing mythical creatures in the face, the existence of another player adds an element of unpredictability. The reality of your co-op partner constantly alerting the guards is drowned out by the experience in your head – the synchronised stealth takedowns, the perfectly executed plan – but both success and failure are more compelling when you can take credit for the former and blame someone else for the latter.

it's an issue i have considered...

an interface to do such things would be pretty clear, it would involve creating a LIST of transformations, where the user can add, re-arrange, delete, transformation items.  such processes can be seen in some file renamers and probably some other text manipulators.

it's something i considered.. the problem is that while such an approach is much more flexible and comprehensive, and indeed extensible, there is a real price to be paid in terms of ease of use for quick things.  so in the end i chose this approach, and left more complicated manipulations to external scripts that can be triggered.

you're right, i'll add it.

And does it save the proper incremented value if you exit and restart manually?

You don't happen to have this setting checked do you? :

47  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: File naming template on: June 17, 2015, 03:30:56 PM
What might be happening is that on reboot, the program isn't getting a chance to save it's settings.  One quick thing to test would be to manually exit screenshot captor and restart it, and see if it resumes where it was when you exited.  If so then it's working correctly except for reboot.  let me know.

First let me confirm something -- are we talking about you modifying this number:

"dye" stains cannot be found in normal hardware stores -- which have tons of gel and standard stains -- you have to mail order them or find them in a special woodworking store, which i stumbled accross locally.  I heard experts recommend them for blotchy wood like maple and birtch but i was unconvinced until i actually tried one myself, and i'll be damned if the dye didn't completely eliminate the blotching problem and look remarkably better.

There are videos on youtube, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3Ysfw0LmMw
