It isn't on DcUpdater yet?

Yes, it's really damn fast. _And_ it doesn't need to update databases. :-*  Away with locate32 for me ;)

I'm wondering how I can use Win+F an a shortcut for Everything instead of the (useless) Windows search... Setting it in the options doesn't work >:(

Good news everyone! :D  Sorry, could not resist. But it works!

If the file at has been updated (as it seems from Reply #105), the version should be incremented as well, so that DcUpdater detects the change.

It was working for me before the latest update, but doesn't anymore :(

1.However, you can use Right Win-key.[edit]I checked out, and found that system win-hotkey as win+D, win+R, etc. perfectly works with MouseAltTab without any conflicts and problems. Only start menu do not appears when Left winkey pressed down. This is only one inconvenience of using all advantages of MouseAltTab[/edit]
You can only use the right Win key if your keyboard has one.
2.Autohotkey makes such visual bugs which appreciable on the slow PC.
[edit]I fixed this bug partly (I forgot to include return command for CapsLock handler :-[ ). For more smooth switching WinEsc must switch transparency between 125(semi-transparent) and 255(pseudo-non-transparent) values. But transparency feature slowing down the PC. I used switching between 125 and transparency-off values to prevent it, in the WinEsc. I'll try to fix this bug by other way.[/edit]
I made new version of WinEsc to make possible invert function to switch transparent window temporarily to non-transparent and to also to make transparency permanent and its value changeable. I'll upload it soon.

I added a screenshot and a non-referrer link (should have done so in the first post, of course).
The only thing I get from referrer is some points in case you decide to get an account on Kongregate.

Living Room / Amorphous+ -- a great flash game
« on: August 06, 2008, 04:34 PM »
You are a single guy with a huge sword fighting against a horde of blobs.
On the plus side: 110 awards to unlock, addictive, you need to use a lot of strategy :Thmbsup:
Minus side: the only Kongregate game which had any lag on high settings for me so far :(
Screenshot - 07.08.2008 , 9_50_06.png
Found on Jay is Games with rating 4.7 out of 5.
Link to the game: http://www.kongregat...s/?referrer=alexey_r
Link without referrer: http://www.kongregat...uousGames/amorphous/

That one gives me a 404 error.

Yes, now why not add the screenshots to the page?
Two bugs:
1. MouseAltTab disables the simple Win shortcut for me.
2. Using Win+CapsLock, when I release CapsLock the active window disappears for a moment before returning to non-transparency.

1. Great idea! :Thmbsup: I try to generally use Win+Smth. keys for system-global shortcuts as well. (Of course, some programs won't recognise them...)
2. AHK code for the scripts is a must. With it we can just add the scripts to our start-up script instead of adding another few processes at startup, and, more importantly, customize the hotkeys.
3. These two lines at the main WEP page:
    * <Win>+<NumPad> = WinCalc (AHK-code), WinTipCalc, WinTitleCalc.
    * <Win>+<Mouse Scroll> - MouseScroll (AHK-code), MouseWinList and MouseAltTab (AHK-code)- Scroll mouse with <Win> to switch between opened windows.
What is the difference between MouseScroll, MouseWinList, and MouseAltTab? It's kinda hard to guess from this.

.NET 3.5 SP1 introduces a new setup package option for developers building .NET client applications called the ".NET Framework Client Profile".  This provides a new setup installer that enables a smaller, faster, and simpler installation experience for .NET client applications on machines that do not already have the .NET Framework installed.

The .NET Framework Client Profile setup contains just those assemblies and files in the .NET Framework that are typically used for client application scenarios.  For example: it includes Windows Forms, WPF, and WCF.  It does not include ASP.NET and those libraries and components used primarily for server scenarios.  We expect this setup package to be about 26MB in size, and it can be downloaded and installed much quicker than the full .NET Framework setup package.
Well, this makes the decision a lot easier :)

See above: 200MB install for 3.5 (less after the Service Pack comes out EDIT: didn't know how small it was, see below) (22 for 2.0, 50 for 3.0).
2.0 is installed already on all XP SP2 computers (and maybe SP1 too, don't remember), 3.0 on all Vista computers.

Sure, if I was writing the program for myself only, or for .Net programmers only, I'd be using the latest version without any hesitation;
but I'm not.

Ok, so there are some... nice to know.

Well, anybody who refuses to do anything with .Net can forgo my application easily enough (and suffer for this >:().
But given the 200MB download size for 3.5 people just _might_ be reluctant to download it for a small application...

Basically, I've seen plenty of freeware/donationware programs requiring .NET 2.0, but I can think of none requiring even 3.0.
To be quite honest, the most important consideration for using WPF in this application for me is just to learn it :)
And some things can be added in the future much easier with WPF as well, but none of them are planned for the first version.

Just upgraded from 2 GB to 4 GB, actually :)

Nice list. Are you using FF V2 or V3?
Firefox 3.

  • Tab Mix Plus
  • Tab Scope -- thumbnails for tabs
  • Toolbar Buttons
  • Uppity 1.5 -- go up in the URL structure

I am wondering if it makes sense to write a donationware application using WPF or LINQ yet...

They are not at the moment.

If you use hotkeys, you can't do that -- the menu opens, but the arrow keys do nothing mad

:-* It has been fixed in the new version! :eusa_dance: :greenclp: :greenclp:  If someone here did it, I'd like to know so that I can donate a few credits.

Not so much adding features, but if someone could fix a bug, I'd be happy enough.
Namely, if you open Recent/Favorites menu using mouse, you can navigate them by arrow keys.
If you use hotkeys, you can't do that -- the menu opens, but the arrow keys do nothing :mad:

Unfortunately, I don't have any C++ experience (or any non-GCd language experience, for that matter),
and haven't even managed to build the code, so I'm quite unable to fix it myself :(

Great news! :Thmbsup: Can't wait...

Double click in Direct Folders doesn't work for me under Vista. (and I'm not the only one: see the first comment at http://blog.codesect...folders-33-released/). However, it has a big advantage over FileBox eXtender -- the hotkeys are actually useful!

Scratch that: yes, hotkeys show the list, but clicking on any folder from there opens it in Explorer, _not_ the file dialog :(

In the latest version of FileBox eXtender hotkeys show the list, but you can't navigate it with the arrow keys, only with the mouse. And if you open the list by clicking the mouse, you can use the arrow keys to navigate it... so both ways you have to use the mouse. And the folders in the Recent menu seem pretty random (those are certainly not the folders I actually used recently). Didn't see how it works in Direct Folders yet.

"folders of currently open files" feature of Flash Folder sounds great :Thmbsup:, but it's a pity it doesn't work under Vista :'(.

I just discovered this does work in the latest version of FARR :-* My AHK script didn't work from XYplorer or Notepad++, so this makes me very happy!  :greenclp:
