[Utility] BB SorR Mod loader

Post  orkactus on Wed Oct 12, 2016 6:12 pm

Hi everyone, I made a small utility for loading palettes and mod data. I don't have a lot of time but I still want to share the tool with you. Feel free to use it and contact me for feedback or if you have good ideas.
I'm not allowed to post external links as a new user, I'll edit my post in 7 days. Sorry for bypassing the system.
This app has not been tested widely, and as a consequence, make sure you backup important data such as original palettes or custom you've made.

You can download it here :
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7kH19TanVCIX1RlSnMxQTlYU28

Just extract the zip file inside the SORR directory. The launcher should be in a sub directory of the main application.
Example : SorRV5/bbloader/SorRLoader.exe
[IMPORTANT EDIT] Your original palettes should be moved to the directory palettes_original as follows :
Example : SorRV5/palettes_original/[chars] and [enemies]



Here are the information from the readme.txt available in the zip. Enjoy !

SORR LOADER V1 by BB

This app was developped in a day to automate mod loading via a user friendly interface.
For the launcher to work, make sure the SorRLoader is in a subdirectory of SorR, if you move it somewhere else, it's not gonna work !

USER MANUAL

!!!IMPORTANT!!! : Prior to using this loader, your original palettes of the game should be moved to the directory palettes_original as follows :
Example : SorRV5/palettes_original/[chars] and [enemies]
-> Go to configuration
-> Choose a mod (to have the mod data when you launch the game)
-> Customize the palettes if you wish with other mod palettes ! Infinite combinations !

ABOUT THE LAUNCHER

It is TOTALLY safe and is NOT a virus.
It is standalone and doesn't require any change or installation on your computer

This app is made for personal use only, doesn't bring me any money, doesn't have any license or any ads.
Works natively on any windows, feel free to share.

DEBUGGING

In case of a problem, you can :
- You can find the logs in the file log.txt
- Enable a graphical console by adding a file named "show_console" (no extension) in SorRLoader directory
- You can as well contact me at orkactus@hotmail.com with a tag [SORRLOADER] as object and include logs or screenshots...

I'm very busy and working as a freelance software/hardware engineer but I'll try to answer if I find enough time

Feel free to contact me as well if you like it Wink

CUSTOMIZE

You can change the music of the launcher for a different .MP3 file, make sure it is named music.mp3 in the same directory

In order to install a new mod, just make sure
- the mod is inside the mod/games directory
- the enemmies and data palettes are inside the palettes directory of the mod and named correctly
- the data is put inside a data folder inside the mod directory

Just check other mods, it's easy to understand !

ENJOY !!!

I never used palette manager because I'm too used to hot-swapping manually.
However, I'm sure you've made a lot of people happy with this - the community has been needing a manager that incorporates data swaps. Well done. Very Happy b

Be warned guys. I tried this and not only didn't work for me (which is not a big problem), but also the program decided to delete ALL my palletes, and by all include chars, enemies and custom =(.

Rule of thumb: always make backups when new software is going to be used.

I didn't have time, space or will to copy/pasting 14 gigas of Sorr.

Anyway, just a warning, since the originals are deleted too and, because of that, the game no longer can start. <-- I am assuming the palettes are deleted, but I wouldn't discard that the files were moved to another place/folder and I didn't found them.

Good thing I'm a master hot swapper, otherwise I might've tried out this TOTALLY safe program. Razz
Either a bug or practical joke. Very Happy b

So sorry guys I forgot a crucial information...
THE ORIGINAL PALETTES SHOULD BE MOVE TO THE DIRECTORY palettes_original in the main folder of the game prior to using the loader !!
I have updated the broken link.
In the next version, I will add additional surface check to make sure people backuped the palettes correctly first.
Again don't hesitate to send me the logs so I can improve the software !
Thank you and sorry again !

Maybe not totally I guess jocolor, at least I can ensure it cannot damage other directories of the system than the SorR folder. I used many guards.

Just as a curiosity, the name of my Sorr folder has 36 characters, including a "v5.1" (I mean, the "." character). Do you think you program will be available to work on that? (I am not going to try myself, I'm still redownloading some other peoples mods to recover some palettes I'm missing).

I could suggest a "there is no palettes_original/[char][enemies] folder, error" or something. Because when I tried the error was "not finding a path" (or something similar), but then using the "launch original" didn't even launch.

I mean, even withouth palettes, using the "launch original" should launch the original game right? (the game will said "not galsia1.Pal found", but in this case the program didn't even start.
