I've been using this for 2 days now and, well, it's very motivating - you know what I mean ??

I'm being serious too - I'm  pleasantly suprised by the urge to build up those points :D
thanks mouser :Thmbsup:

a minor bug:
the reward column on the "Earn Points" tab only ever shows 10points here regardless of actual amounts (which work okay otherwise)
a minor request:
could you get it to come out of the tray on one click? (please!)
oh, and option to close to tray would be good too but only as icing

I just downloaded this and like it a lot, but have an idea. I don't know how many people here use Samurize on their desktop, but I feel like this would be an incredibly awesome Samurize config where you can see how you're doing as well as add/subtract some points directly from your desktop without opening the main window (which you would call up when you want to configure the program or perhaps add/subtract points with more rarely used things). I don't think an equivalent thing for Samurize exists, but I'm not sure how difficult of a program it would be.

Any thoughts?

I have one major idea that would really expand the use of the program.. it's just waiting on me to have some time to work on it.

Rostam -- those are really nice ideas -- i actually thought of making an interface with samurize a while ago -- seems like a nice idea. I can do the things that would make that possible:
  • Write out a simple text file summary of your current state (that could be read and displayed by samurize or other programs)
  • Add commandline options to add or subtract points so you wouldnt have to open up the program.

However the big question is.. does anyone (besides me) actually even use Point Motivator.. hard to justify working on it if no one uses it.

I do use Point Motivator. Just started).
I suggest to add fines (or punishments) as a main category that works the same as Rewards, displays in the "rewards" tab and said tab renamed as rewards and fines.
This way if I go to the W.C. and wander around more than I should, or got an IM message and start chatting more than i should, I could punish me with negative points.
This same category could be used for missed deadlines.

I just started using this, and I've been busy making definitions. I've two suggestions-

-Have some relatively expansive starter definitions available
-Have a Loss (or something) tab, other than the rewards.

But even as is, it's pretty great. Thank you!

v1.09.01 - November 27. 2013
  • [Improvement] Item editor now remembers last file being edited and loads it by default, and loads user sample on first use.
  • [Improvement] Sample items are now moved to user item directory to make it easier for user to get started editing custom items.
  • [MajorFeature] Executable and setup are now digitally signed for extra security; instead of a zip-compatible installer, there are now 2 separate downloads for installer and portable version.
  • [Feature] New daily points options, lets you configure certain amount of points to be added each day and a decay of existing points.  Good for daily spending of points -- for example if dieting.
