General Software Discussion / Windows 98 style File Extension Editor?
« on: January 29, 2012, 06:52 PM »
As a with a lot of things in the newer versions of windows (Looking at the controlless defrag in particular), They have a lot less power than they Windows 98 equivalents, to try to make things easier for normal users.  I'm looking for a program - Other than Regedit - Which will allow me to edit the individual actions in a File Extension.

Here's the Windows 98 dialogue, in case people need a refresher (It was over a decade ago)

N.A.N.Y. 2012 / [CANCELED]: Dungeon AI
« on: July 19, 2011, 05:02 AM »
Recently I have been wanting to play more D&D rather than just DMing all the time. Unfortunately nobody I know is willing to step up as a DM at the moment.   As such, I've decided to make my computer do so for me :P

Basically, DungeonAI is an application that can act as a GameMaster for D&D4E, complete with battlemap and condition/HP tracking.  

I'll probably code it in Java.  More details to come soon.

PS:  I don't actually have an internet connection right now, so I won't respond to this post for a couple days. :-[

Description
NetLauncher is designed for use on a computer (probably a netbook), which is often going in and out of wireless access.

The idea is that NetLaunch will sit as a background agent, and check network status.  On status change, the program will launch/quit programs depending on user-defined rules.

Sample Configuration
Network activated:
  • Launch Pidgin
  • Launch Windows Live Sync
Network deactivated:
  • Kill Windows Live Sync process
  • Gracefully close pidgin
  • Prompt user whether to close Firefox


While this app will not be useful while sitting in a flaky wireless area, it is perfect for people who travel between areas with wi-fi, and those without wi-fi (or just none that you have access to :P).

Features
  • Command-line arguments for once-off launch checking.
  • Agent mode

Planned Features
Per-interface rules (possible, not yet sure whether it's worth it.)

Screenshots

Usage
Installation
Extract zip into a folder.  Not much of an install process yet.

Using the Application
Using the Command-line Interface is best done with a shortcut, or FARR item.
NetLaunch.exe -u "C:\Program Files\pidgin\pidgin.exe" -u "C:\Program Files\Windows Live\SyncUX\wlsync.exe" -d pskill.exe [pidgin.exe] -d pskill [wlsync.exe]

Uninstallation
Delete Files.

Known Issues
  • Can't launch apps with command line arguments, as NetLaunch eats them.
  • Still no GUI.
  • Cannot edit or delete tasks.
  • Adaptor Blacklist may be wrong in places.  If someone finds an adaptor that is incorrectly allowed/blocked, please tell me.


Original Post

While this app will not be useful while sitting in a flakey wireless area, it is perfect for people who travel between areas with wifi, and those without.

It will also have a command line interface, to allow users to run actions without the use of an agent.
IE: NetLaunch.exe -u "C:\Program Files\Pidgin\Pidgin.exe"
or: NetLaunch.exe -d "pskill.exe Pidgin.exe"

It will be a Windows-only application.
