Config.exe appearance
« on: May 11, 2010, 05:57:50 pm »
Tonight I fixed that I was thinking about for a long time.
I'm about default Config.exe appearance.

I've used Config.exe from the latest beta.

changelog:
- fixed TabOrder for ALL controls

- changed positions for most controls

- changed font charset for all controls to DEFAULT_CHARSET

- changed class of 'Start Soldat after Exiting Config' checkbox from TCheckBox to TTntCheckBox (it was the only with default TCheckBox class)
I though this will fix a bug with Hebrew localization of this contol. But it didn't help...

- added manifest resource
I've used one from start.exe, with it's "CompanyName.ProductName.YourApplication" and "Your application description here." strings :D



Therefore I suggest EnEsCe/MM to use an attached files for the next build.
I'm not a Delphi programmer, but I'm sure this will take less than a minute to update and compile Config.exe with a new Form source.


upd: attached fixed Config too

I can't see many changes actually...
But since this is about the Config.exe - for the Network-tab: the Internet connection speed should be updated.
I don't really know what it changes actually, maybe some of these lines of soldat.ini:

Code: [Select]
MaxConnections=8
TooMuch_Packets_Internet=33
Flooding_Packets_Internet=37
Max_Flood_Warnings=4
Max_Ping_Warnings=10
T1_Snapshot=40
T1_MajorSnapshot=20
T1_DeadSnapshot=50
T1_Heartbeat=139
T1_Delta=4
T1_Ping=21
T1_ThingSnapshot=29
PacketRate_Adjusting=0

Maybe we could improve the overall laggy/not-laggy feeling by adjusting these to be more accurate to the real connection speed.
No difference between man and mouse - both end up in pussy.

The only changes you can see are TabOrder and controls positions.

There was a feeling that about 10 different ppl were working on Config.exe
TabOrder was totally f**ked up, as there was no unite style of GUI elements layout.

+ maximized GUI elements width for more localization compatibility
