This release should address the rest of the bugfixes that I had planned to do. There's still the never-ending list of features and enhancements, but at least this should be usable for actual modding work again.

@Avan: You can now set angles and arcs of weapon slots manually, in the T menu for that weapon (mode 1)

@FlashFrozen: Can you re-test against your "extra weapon groups / modified weapon groups on older variants" and "opening corrupted variants" bug? And if you're stilling getting the bug, can you please send me an example variant for me to work with on fixing this? Also the weapon groups editor works now so you should be able to re-test. (LOL)

@Thaago: I have looked at the file you gave me, and it would appear as though the directory structure for linux is very similar to that of windows, save that the "starfarer-core" directory I am used to seeing isn't there, and instead it appears that its contents are located at the root directory itself. So, I have added this attribute to the list of directories I scan for the vanilla data and it should now work; though I don't have a Linux install to test it on. So, you're going to have to try it out for me, and let me know if it works for you.

@TurgotZ, @Sendrien: You should notice that you can save variants without weapon groups now, and it will properly encode the [].

@Veronw: I have added functionality to support the HOME key as an alternative to ESCAPE, just for you. I'm assuming you have this key?

@Uomoz: I have added some pretty complex functions to ensure that regardless of what changes are made to the ship data, that the currently loaded variant remains compatible with it. Let me know if you run across any issues with this.

@xenoargh: The built-in weapons bug you found seems to have been fixed. Also, you can now press CTRL+ALT+[N] to start a new set of data (everything is cleared).

I'm getting an error from making a new ship.  I've attached the .log to my post.

Seems as if it's a result of your editor.  singled out everything else, and the one new fighter I made seems to crash the game.

@The Soldier: You should be good to go now. Not sure how I missed this one, but it definitely would have made any *.ship files saved with version 2.4.2 incompatible with Starfarer.

If anyone else ran across this error, please download 2.4.3, open your ship data, and simply re-save. That should be enough to fix this issue.


editor version 2.4.3 (starfarer 0.53.1a RC5)
- fixed: incorrectly encoding weapon slots (fatal error)

Tried the new version, it loads everything correctly and I haven't found any other bugs under wine. In case anyone else runs into it, changing the drag key away from alt on ubuntu 10.04 is done via System>Preferences>Windows>Movement Key.

I just tested it on the v2.4.3 download, and I have no problems.

Start -- [2] --> [F],[F],[F],[F],[F],[Shift + F],[Shift + F],[Shift + F] --> [C],[C],[C],[C],[Shift+C],[Shift+C]
Result is as expected: Vents = 2, Caps = 2

Can you run this same test for me?

Maybe try deleting your existing settings file and re-running?

Hey, just wanted to say two things - keep up the good work :) love the progress you made with the editor ever since I can remember to start using it, it has walked a loong line. :)

One thing I would like to suggest/ask for though - if possible, could the weapons still blink, when selected in the Weapon Groups menu? I like that they dont jump off now when moved
in a different group, but occasionly I need to be sure which of weapon I have selected, for example when I wanna make a broadside group. (Ive browsed over last two pages quickly and
I didnt see anyone mention it, but Im sorry if it was already mentioned).

Thats my thought on using the 2.4.3, otherwise no problem and only awesomeness instead  8)

MrDavidoff that's a really great idea, and I'll add that to my list.

One small issue I'm having with 2.4.3 (which is better in every other way) is that +/- no longer appear to zoom.
