And the previous request for hotkey assignment to the windows would be very nice, I second the motion....


I thought that would be nice too, so I added some very basic support for hotkeys. I don't have access to the repo, but there should be a new version out soon. If not, feel free to bug me for an updated .exe (stranger danger!)

Hotkeys to switch to window #1, window#2 etc would be excellent and a nice way to check your handy scouts etc

Yep! Hotkeys are in the works as well as a reimplementation of the minimize to tray option. I'll see if I can work some more this weekend, but I'm travelling for work soon and I don't know how much time I'll have for a bit.

EDIT: sorry folks, busy weekend again. Nothing from me :(

So I'm trying to do a weird use case scenario. I have one primary client on multiple screens, then 5 other clients running windowed. I want to do two things.

1) I want to use save location but this causes issues with the primary client, so I need to rename the EXE for the multibox clients.
1) I only want the teamspeak overlay to run on the primary client, so I have to rename the EXE.

I've renamed the exe file to exefilemulti.exe. This works fine for fixing the overlay from appearing on multiple clients and wasting resources. However, I've downloaded the source for this program and can't seem to figure out where in the code it's referencing looking for exefile.exe, as I simply need to change that to looking for exefilemulti.exe and then I just need to update that file every time the game gets patched to achieve what I want. Where is this located?

EDIT: Found it in the PreviewHandler.cs file.

Starting with todays patch, whenever I have previewer running and launch a client, it gets downsized so hard you can't actually open it anymore.
[url]http://puu.sh/gv0Po/ae25502e15.jpg[/url]
Right side is account launched before launching eve previewer, left side is account launched afterwards, it's not possible to view the downsized client in any other way.
I've had this problem in the past a few times, but it only happened after selecting a character on the login screen and you could fix it by setting the client to full screen, logging the character in and then setting it to windowed again.
This time it happens immediately, but only if eve previewer is running at the same time.
I'd be glad for any suggestions, as it is a tiny bit annoying when needing to switch characters quickly.

Edit: just as I posted this it magically fixed itself.

Ctrl alt delete, click on each eve clients, click maximum or make full screen.

It'll fix that.

Yaay!!!!

I've never actually seen this. When I get back from my business trip overseas I'll see what I can do..but nothing until this weekend as I don't get back until late tomorrow.


EDIT: try unchecking "track client locations" and see what happens

Nothing happens, as I can't reproduce the bug :)

It happened again and turning off "track client locations" fixed it. Don't need it anyway for a single screen.

Thanks, good to know. I'll try to find out in the code why it's doing that. As for updates, I'll do my best. Work just got REALLY hectic along with some other IRL stuff. I'll do my best to update the program but seeing as fanfest is soon I'll be watching that. Not sorry about that last part :P But seriously, I need to work on this more.

Might be implementing a log system on the app or a error reporting system so you could keep an aye on all this,

Is this bannable now?

In the fanfest presentation I watched they said
Quote:
"You may not use your own or third-party software to modify any content appearing within the game environment or change how the game is played"
and this certainly changes how the game appears and is played.

I like the window management I just would like to make sure it's not illegal too.

CCP FoxFour was the one who provided the code for the window arrangement. and client size

Doesn't modify the ingame client, nor does it change how the game appears or is played.

Its pretty much a overlay window that the OS can provide (monitor emulation). There is no direct changes or inputs that program can provide ingame.

Its a weird dance.

Yaay!!!!

Hey guys,

After reading a few of the last posts and the concern about this piece of software being allowed or not, I went and had a chat with our security guys. They have confirmed this is totally acceptable, nothing has changed. :)

Fly safe.

Neither does isboxer's VideoFX but it was held up as an example of something bannable. Videofx only works because of Windows DWM thumbnails and I thought this program was using the same concept.

You can't interact with eve through the previews. You can with isboxer.

No you can with window's DWM... It's a built in function of the OS itself.
