v1.00 sneak preview

Post by Xymph » 05 Jun 2008 20:26

I've already made a lot of progress on v1.00, and since there are still plenty folks out there that favor style (TMF-like windows and widgets) over substance (lots of commands and features), I figured I'd offer a hint at the upcoming stylishness in XAseco. :lol:

There is a style selection menu where you can choose and change the window style on the fly. I've created 20 standard templates and more are easy to add. Here is the LightTransp one:

Image

and the WhiteRound one with the remaining styles:

Image

Here is the track list in DarkTransp style, with the track names clickable to add them to the jukebox:

Image

This is the TMX info window in DarkBlur style:

Image

The /autojuke help window in Cyan style:

Image

Similarly, the records panel can be changed dynamically from 15 templates with this menu (in OrangeBlur style):

Image

One possible spot is in the lower-right corner:

Image

Another on the left edge of the screen below the position panel (leaving room for the spectator panel):

Image

or like this:

Image

The four times in the panel are buttons to open the /topsums, /recs, /dedirecs and /tmxrecs windows, respectively. To try all this out yourself, visit my server StadiuMania! in the Netherlands at tmtp://#join=xymph_admin_tmf .

Next up, an admin control panel. :D

Looks great. maybe should leave TMF Aseco and start to use XAseco :)
I suppose if I hadn't have to adapt my plugins I would do it without hesitation

Just fantastic :thumbsup:

I forgot to note that while there's a default window style and a default records panel (configurable in config.xml and changeable with a /admin command), each player can choose an individual style without affecting performance, as it merely changes a template. The admin panel will offer the same flexibility, I have six templates already.

Also, on TMUF all /list commands include an Env column, and the environment names are buttons too that allow switching to a /list env: subset for just that environment.
Thanks for the kind comments. :pil

WOW, I'm speechless. Looks really great. I look forward to this release after my holidays.

Just one wish: It should be configurable by admin how many tracks one person can juke with /autojuke at once.
I am very impressed with your skills, effort and capabilities! :thumbsup:

It's no different than jukeboxing a track the normal way, i.e. a player can have only one track in the jukebox at a time, and an admin with the <chat_jb_recent> ability can do multiple.

I think you need to make a tool to convert aseco 2.x database to Xaseco database, as lots of people are going to make the switch to this beauty .....

Hmm, I don't have a ManiaLink page for XAseco (just the webpage)... what do you mean?

I thought you already found all the styles yourself?

Anyway, this post includes links to this ManiaLink to see them in the game: http://smurf1.free.fr/mle/ . And this is a handy reference list.

The one thing not in those pages which you already discovered is that abbreviating style Bgs1InRace to Bgs1 will blur the transparent substyles in that group.

Actually someone PMed me about that just this week, so I tried running XAseco on an A/R2 database, and no conversion appeared to be needed as I didn't notice any problems displaying tracks and players (although that test database didn't have many entries for them). There's one column in the rs_times table which is renamed automatically the first time XAseco is started with such a database, as described on my XAseco page in the Installation section.

Obviously you should always make a backup of your database before switching controllers, just in case something goes wrong unexpectedly.

The admin panel is also done (much of the records panel code could be reused, so it was a breeze to add). Here is the list of available panels:

Image

For example the AboveSpeed panel:

Image

The TopCenterWide panel aligns with the drop-down menu:

Image

while the BottomCenter one aligns with the checkpoints panel:

Image

And if you use chat-based votes, then the CallVote spot on the HUD is nicely freed up for the admin panel too (shown together with the LeftOrange records panel and the spectator panel):

Image

Sooo, can you guess which /admin commands are invoked by the 7 buttons? :wink:
