  13. Yeah havent had the chance to play with the new version ...will prolly do so tonight
  14. How bout some satellite antennas?
  15. Blackhole sun wont you come.... and wash away the rain....blackhole sun wont you come. Time for Iggy's torture test numero DOS! Grand job by the way Fr0sty and jhab!
  16. Fr0stybyt3 I think that having multiple threads while using the Hyperbase Live program is A OK with me....however, the threads should terminate when you close the program out. Im seeing them still active in task manager. This is what I meant to say. Are you seeing this same behavior on your end?
  17. Also from item 3, you can keep it pretty basic....have a query to find the state of your dropdowns.....if all items are syncing then you can display full sync for that system, if only partial media is syncing then you can display partial sync, or if no items syncing you display system not synced. What would have to be determined is what is considered full sync (ie there would have to be two groups....people with emumovies accts and people with that do not.....for people that have emumovie accounts, then essentially its all dropdowns including video dropdown have something other than do not sync selected. For people that do not have an emumovie account, this will be all dropdowns minus the video dropdown that have something other than do not sync selected). Heck instead of displaying a label of the state of sync for the system, you can use a red, yellow, green light system in the upper corner of the system logo or something....like my attachments....j..red means systems not synced, yellow means some items are syncing, while green means all items are syncing. Just some ideas im throwing out there....
  18. Coolio! K for item 9, backups could be placed within the media folder themselves....example, 2-D box art that was synced in artwork folder 1. If a person wants to backup these items, then click a button to zip all those 2-D boxes into a zip file within the same artwork 1 folder on their local HS setup.. A person can manually do this, however; it would prevent accidental overwrites of custom artwork, etc. On the flip-side, If the program detects that a files exists it and skips it, then it would be hard to figure out which items didnt sync and you would have to resort to logs to parse out this data For item 10. People might be confused as to what systems are showing up in the list. People might start thinking that the systems in the list are the systems that were found in a person's HS setup (which is the case) or could be that the list of systems are the only ones available to download from Hyperbase, etc. Majority of the people will know that the list of systems are what shows up, however; you may have a few where they be like...is that the only systems available to download from the server?
  19. Alrighty fr0stybyt3 and jhabers....all I gots to say is that I commend you on a well designed, intuitive application. Grand job boys! Its very simple and easy to use and it survived my torture test So the little nitpicking Im going to offer is (these are just ideas Im throwing around): -When uninstalling HyperbaseLive through Add/Remove programs, there is one file remnant that stays under C:\Program Files (x86)\HyperBase\HyperBase Live\core\resources\app\server\settings.json -Suggestion to make emumovies grayed out (or not appear) in left pane until client settings HS path is set. If you make it not appear, then also hide the videos dropdown under media tab -When viewing all systems, prolly make a description under each system that gives a brief glimpse if: system media not synced, some media synced, or all media. synced. Might have to brainstorm on this one but the goal is that you can tell which systems are synced, somewhat synced, or not synced just by looking at the view all systems page -When setting up each system for the first time, would suggest to relabel folder dropdown as Copy to folder: (ie folder dropdowns to the right of Box Art and Cart Art) -Suggest rename default to standard or minted (as default is a misnomer) -Suggest to give some directions when picking media dropdown items using question mark buttons (as an example, to the right of art folders place a question mark button that opens a window to tell the user what needs to be done): -Suggest that the program could scan what you have and show a list similar to the games tab (that shows green checkboxes for media found or red Xs for media missing) -Suggest in the games tab to offer select all or nothing checkboxes above wheels, cart, box, theme, video -Just an idea, maybe offer a way to backup certain folders into a zip so no media gets accidentally overwritten -Rename Systems->View All to Systems->View All Systems Found -Im also seeing multiple hyperbaselive.exe process threads as gamesmame pointed out that stay active even when program is closed (figure you are prolly working on this minor bug) Let me know if you have any questions and I can elaborate.
