[!AltME] Discussion about AltME

Toggle GUI Elements have a tendancy to confuse me unless they are 
a radio button or checkbox where the meaning is clear.
You never know how the developer was thinking when he designed it... 
 Visible text is current state, or click to switch the state that 
the visible text refers to?
Sent feedback on the date selector.  It doesn't like TODAY.  Switch 
the value to any other day and try to select TODAY, you'll pull an 
error 100% of the time...

Reichart, I really appreciate AltME.  It is a great application.
I makes getting help a lot faster.

Ammon, yeah, I agree.  We are slowly locking down what I call a "pattern 
language."  In other words using the same UI parts the same way everywhere.
Louis, thank you.  Slowly but constantly, we move forward.

May I ask what the Depot folder and its contents are?  It looks useful!

LOL, yeah, info on all the directories will be coming.  We are waiting 
for our next update before we let people start poking things.

Ok...  Patiently waiting... ;~>
In a world as large as this one, perhaps there should be a way to 
quickly view Group information such as descriptions.  Maybe even 
the ability to search the groups to see if a group relevant to your 
next post exists or if you should create a new group for the post.

what about a smaller planet, like Mars?

Yeah, we are playing with something like that.

Such a feature would likely be quite usefull there as well...

Does AltME have a DCC file-send type of thing?
Pekr

no
maybe upcoming major update will have, but that is question for Reichart 
to answer. If I understand it correctly, it will feature ability 
to extend AltME with other apps ...

We have no current plan of support DCC.  We do have a plan of supporting 
file share on AltME, and already do on Qtask.

Please put the SDK group under the REBOL divider.

Ugh
I want to use Worldmaster dividers with some slight changes... SO, 
a way to choose Worldmaster dividers, then edit them for a custom 
one, would be nice
BrianW

choose custom dividers, but start with a clone of Worldmaster?
Just trying to think of another way to phrase it :-)
Ammon

Aye, I'm fairly certain that that is what the Depot folder is about 
and they are going to be giving us info on it soon...
[unknown: 9]

SDK moved.

sorry about the s's above...was keying commands to an emulator and 
AltME focus grabbled them...

I spent a few clock cycles on them thinking it was some puzzle.  
then something else shiny caught my attention.

Yep Brian, that's it.


I'm gonna try something.. I was looking around the AltMe folders, 
and found a file that looked like all it contained were dividers. 
 I'll copy AltMe to a new folder (backup) and copy the Worldmaster 
one over my Custom on
Well, AltMe didn't error, but it didn't change any dividers, either.. 
 oh well

your welcome to mess with AltME's folders....but don't cry when something 
odd happens.
We plan to clean it up, and write a paper that explains it all, for 
example, you can actually dump all your grpahics, and then replace 
them all.
Skinning AltME is actaully pretty easy.  But not fully tested.

I got another request that I think will be cool.  Add a private option 
to the calendar so that it can be run in a local mode so that the 
data isn't shared.  I would think it would be easy to add it since 
the calendar is already created.
Also, any chance of getting a standalone version of that Calendar 
:-)

assumming the next version of alrme allows multiple worlds open, 
I would like to be able to set which (if any) notifies you when it 
gets a message posted.

Reichart, I made two copies of the AltME folder just in case something 
did mess up  ^.-

Paul, both are planned for the future AltME.
Tomc, yup, planned.
Izkata............ :)
note: I don't tell you guys what is planned to annoy you, just in 
case it was taken that way, I just try to give you feedback so you 
know a) I'm listening, b) if we don't have it to add it to feedbackl.

just out of curiousity... assuming skinning is supported..

is it skinning on a world-by-world basis?
[unknown: 9]
10-Mar-2005
[426]
no, you can skin your own view.

prefs/prefs.txt, in the main altme dir, contains an entry "skin-dir: 
none"
So it looks like it applies globally.

Has anyone had any problems with getting Altme working thru a proxy?

I go out of town once a month, and have to use a squid proxy.  I 
can get IE, Firefox, and one of my own rebol apps to work thru the 
proxy, but not AltME.
[unknown: 9]

Have you filed in all the proxy settings?  I'll assume so............perhaps 
you can send me all your settings so we can try to figure out why 
it might not work.
