Cool bean guys! But do make the pull requests etc to the BitBucket repo (sorry for the underdog git host usage ;) ) and we can take a look at it from there.

(let's get the OP updated)

1. Figure out why (and fix) the settings window loses focus so often. Most likely one or both of the timers calling a function.

-- fixed.

Will try and see if we can get a few more kinks fixed before releasing.

I've been using this for quite some time. I run 3 accts on one monitor and this allows me to monitor all the screens at once. The problem I have is that the previews overlap when I switch through all three. I always have to seperate them again or limit myself to switching between only two clients.


If the moving around of previews is done, taking into account the fact the layout is unique per actual Eve client, you should be able to arrange them so this doesn't happen.

However, I do see how the manual arrangement/re-sizing is a bit annoying. Auto arrangement / re-sizing, of some sort, is something I'd like us to explore at some point.

Agreed. I'll look into a bit. However with the holidays upon us all I probably won't have time to do much coding for any of my projects.

when running two accounts, I click the preview to switch - it completes the switch however I loose the preview of the client I switched from. I can't then ever get back previews without removing the xml config files.

Could be related to windows 10 window manager doing something new? It seems that the preview window is only clickable when the client I want is minmized. http://imgur.com/msvWmtq,QbqUU16 - first image is with 2 client maximized. - second is just with 1 maximized. I would expect in image 1 Nicco client has focus so the Rot preview should be click able.


Any ideas?

Rotineque Severasse: first off, posting chat logs is against the forums rules. Don't want you to get in trouble.
I'm sorry I missed you for the 2nd part of the convo. It's pretty hectic right before xmas. I probably won't get around to looking at it until the new year (StrinkRay is away for the holidays as well). Just in case the chat log gets removed I'll repaste your image file here: http://imgur.com/msvWmtq,QbqUU16

I will look into it, but probably not for a while. My guess is probably Win10 did something slightly different with something. But I don't have a copy installed anywhere to check.


PS: FoxFour, you think you could get them to remove the "warning" for leaving the forums for the Microsoft official site? Seems kinda silly.

Since updating to v1.18 the character names on the overlays disappear when switching clients, playing around with the options changed nothing. They reappear when hovering over an overlay for long enough to trigger the zoom or by disabling and enabling "show overlay" manually. Any suggestions?

Edit: this is on windows 7, these are my settings http://puu.sh/dGO1K/b6cf54c4ac.jpg

Mortvvs: I noticed this as well, I actually meant to put it as a "bug" in the OP. It is being looked into.

EDIT: I'd like to wish everyone happy holidays and I'll catch yall on the flip side after the 1st. o/

it'll be a while until i am in front of a windows box with eve on it, but i have a notion the disappearing char names has to do with disabling the constant bringing the previews to front. Will have to redo that bit properly. Also there were complaints about the darker colors for the tool window, so will revert that change eventually as well.

Thanks for you feedback! And merry xmas new years etc.

There seem to be a few issues with V1.18, so i recommend using v1.17 until either of us has a chance to take a closer look.

Track client location means that, when checked, the program will remember the location of your EVE client positions and rearrange them accordingly when the program dectects the clients. For example, I have a few of my clients on my second monitor. EVE O Preview has that information stored so a few clients get automatically moved to the 2nd monitor.

The setting itself is more useful when you have multiple monitors or massive HD monitors.


I have a bit of time today before I gallivant off to more shenanigans, I will upload a bugfix version soonTM with the color revert.
