UniTaunt - Fully featured Unicode taunt editor - RELEASED
« on: July 24, 2007, 12:24:17 pm »
UniTaunt
DePhille - DePhille\at/Gmail\dot/com - http://soldatpage.u13.net
Current version: 1.0 - Download



INTRODUCTION
UniTaunt is a taunt editor that supports Unicode and has a whole bunch of features at the same time.
It is simple to set up, run the install file once and you can place the UniTaunt file wherever you want.
Features:
- Unicode support
- Azerty and Querty keyboard support
- Swap keys
- Load default Soldat taunts
- Compatible with all Soldat Versions.
- Open, edit, save, create, ... taunt files.




HOW TO INSTALL?
First of all, the installation is not mandatory. The program may be able to run without installing it first.
However, there's a big chance the program will give an error if you did not run the installation, so I'd recommend you run it anyway.

1. Open Setup.exe and follow the procedures.
2. Place the UniTaunt.exe program anywhere you want.
3. Run the program (UniTaunt.exe)



UPDATES
26th of July: Stable version released

Website: http://soldatpage.u13.net/

BTW, does anybody know a way to ctrl+c messages like that? ¬¬

Ah, that's the Forms 2.0 which is giving that error.
Try placing this file in c:\WINDOWS\system32\ and run the program again. It might be a good idea to keep a copy of your old FM20.DLL, though that's rarely necessary.

Weird.
Hmm, maybe re-registering the control might help:
start --> run --> regsvr32 /u fm20.dll
start --> run --> regsvr32 fm20.dll

Hmm,
I think it might be a problem in your registry then, but I'm not sure. You can also try to clean up your registry if you want. There are rumours that this error is caused by having two duplicate entries for one control in your registry.
(I'll keep scouting the internet and chat channels for solutions)

I use CCleaner. Cleaning up your registry avoids alot of errors (especially with programs written in Visual Basic) and speeds up your PC.

Also, try to replace your controls with these:
COMDLG32.OCX
MSCOMCTL.OCX
That might also do the trick.

Thanks a lot for all the effort so far!

I simply write the bytes instead of the bare characters and add the unicode header to the txt file. Visual Basic supports Unicode (with the use of Forms 2.0 VB control) so it's a childsplay to implement it, I just needed to find the appropriate charsets and functions and it's done.
The entire program shouldn't be much more than 5 pages of code.

Well, I've downloaded and installed CCleaner, cleaned up all my registry, replaced those 2 files and still the same.
This is very weird, I've never had problems running VB applications. What is this one using that the LogStats doesn't use?

PD: it would be nice if someone else could test it and tell if it works or not, just to make sure if it's a problem of mine or not.

Logstat uses very little controls, just because I know having many controls in a VB app usually causes alot of errors too (and apparently, I was right, sigh :P). It's not your PC, Visual Basic apps tend to crash often on other PCs, especially the controls. Though I've never seen this error before, and all I read up until now were solutions regarding the controls, again. I'll scout for a few extra hours and send an e-mail or create a forum topic about it.

I'll edit this post whenever I find something new!

Some French people told me that not only FM20.DLL is required but also the "Language", which happens to be FM20ENU.DLL. This seems like the most plausible solution up until now, I have a very strong feeling the error is caused by the Forms 2.0 control as mentioned earlier.

Please download and replace the FM20ENU.DLL file.

Alright, I have good news and bad news :P

Good news! That file was the problem :)
I didn't even have that file. Looks like i only had the spanish version.

Bad news, I found some bugs.

* First a very simple bug, numbers are a little disordered:
Buttons 2 to 9 are 1 to 8 taunts. Button 0 is 9 and button 1 is 0.

* I loaded my taunts and all text was shown properly, but if I save it (making no changes) the file kinda gets screwed. I guess it's some encoding problem.

* I tried pressing New, writing a few taunts and saving to the screwed file (so it would be replaced). It seems the text that was in that file was kept at the end of the file, but in another encoding. Very strange.
Well, you can test it yourself, in this post i attached my taunts file.

* Another thing... I can't write unicode text in the editbox. "привет" looks like "ïðèâåò"


It would be nice if you could fix that stuff because the app looks really nice.
I have a few suggestions also:

* The button "replace with" should have another name.. like "swap" or something, because it doesn't replace but swap the taunts.

* "Save as..." button.

* "Default taunts" button.

Alright, all those bugs should be fixed and those suggestions were implemented!
Please let me know if it now works. If it does I'll wait a few hours and release it as a "Stable" version, along with a tiny page for it on SoldatPage.
Link in main post updated, please re-download!

It works great now. :)
The default taunts isn't the soldat-default taunts, was that your intention?
And maybe you can move the number 0 after the 9, so it looks just like the keyboard :P

Anyway, it works perfectly and it fulfills my needs ;)
Thanks for adding the suggestions.

EDIT: Oh, and if you can, make it so it starts in the center of screen. If my memory doesn't fail that is just changing a property. :P

Alright, the stable version has been released.
I've also updated the main post. I'm currently working on the information page which will be put as a helpfile on SoldatPage.

I just wish that someone would make a taunter that if you help down ALT and two buttons it would make another taunt, like alt+a+s=I killed you ALL! and just alt+a=Help! Help! I am being repressed!
Something like that, or if you hold ctrl+alt+a you get a different taunt than alt+a.
I could fit all my taunts in that way.

I could try that.
However, I need an API for that. The API must be able to capture all key input while Soldat is running on the foreground. The problem is that people think you're making  hack when you ask for such an API, so it won't be easy to get it.
