lol, all of them do, haha!
I already fixed the problem with whitespace parsing in mod_info files, but I have to squash the bugs FlashFrozen reported before I put up next version.

Also, sproginator, please run the SMM as administrator, the log file should appear so you can link it. This is a temporary fix, I will be looking into ways to make it work without administrative rights.

And also, big thanks to everybody who is patient enough and still tries to make this work instead of just throwing it out through the window!

Nice looking stuff, another thing that I'll need to keep an eye on.

Did you try to add your own mod? (I'm asking because the logfile shows there is a problem with your mod's mod_info file, which I will look into now - it's probably another parsing bug, or the one I already fixed).

EDIT: Checked it and... you troll! :D You actually have "replace" variable, with no items! SMM was not prepared for such evil sorcery. Fixing now.

New version, should fix the most "crashy" problems, I hope.

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?ku5jxricj6hio77

Please pay attention that the smm_log.txt file is now created in your %APPDATA%\Starfarer Mod Manager\ directory, rather than Starfarer directory. This is to circumvent the write permissions requiring administrative rights in Program Files.

What about Mono? I have no idea how good it actually is, but it seems like a way to get a C# program to run on Mac/Linux. Assuming it's not an enormous pain to set up and use.
It's pretty much pain, I can tell you from my own experience.

neonesis, you've done very great job writing mod manager, you can try to write it in Java, Java & C# have pretty much the same syntax, both of them object oriented and in addition Java works on every possible OS :)

Oh yea, this isn't starting for me.  It used to start perfectly, now I just double-click it and nothing happens.

Could you please attach (or send me) a log file? It's located in your APPDATA folder, that is C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Starfarer Mod Manager\ on default.

I still have the source code, but I abandoned development a while ago due to not much interest/RL issues. I might resume the project some day (and choose different technology...), but I think that default mod support in Starsector is already good enough, thus making such manager obsolete.
