More cool stuff. I have now added an Insert/Previewer window to PyICE for easy GRP previewing and easy frame/image/sprite/flingy command and id editing and inserting:

Frickin' sweet, man! Now it just needs a sound previewer to completely eclipse ICE.

ICE had a sound preview?

Was there ever a newer more upgraded BIN Edit tool?

Yes it does and so will PyICE soon.

If you mean newer then BinEditII then no, but I do plan to eventually add a BIN editor to PyMS.

It's such a shame I didn't have these tools when I still modded the game. :)

We all know StarCraft will continue to be modded after StarCraft 2 is released, anyway.

Even though KA's programs worked they were an abomination for being unstable and corrupting things usually involving redoing everything in a dat file that kind of made me not want to touch it after a while, Stargraft was like trying to sprint through a minefield because you know its going to explode you just don't know when.

Heh, minefield is right. There was one awesome bug in Stargraft, where if you ever selected the Build Addon entry in Orders, it overwrote whatever was originally there with whatever you had selected before it. In other words, the mere selection of the entry completely broke add-ons, and there was no way to look at the original code to fix it without overwriting it.

Never in my ten years of modding have I dealt with programs as unstable as Stargraft/CV5 (Diablo 2 graphics editor - holy shit this gave stargraft a great run for its money), as corrupting as ICE and Arsenal, and as ridiculously useless and broken as Memgraft UI.

If you so much as resaved the default images.dat in Arsenal 3, it was corrupted. Period.

Sweet baby jebus! Awesome! =oD

Will these previewers open up when you double-click on a sound or image entry in the Iscript Editor?

No, currently you just have the insertion cursor (blinking vertical line where your text inserts when you type) on the line with the command you would like to preview/edit and either hit ctrl+w (playframes/images/sprites/flingys) or ctrl+q (sounds) to open the previewer. Whatever values the selected command has, they will be selected for you in the window. I didn't make it double click because people use double clicking to select whole words at a time, so I dont want to interfere with that.

PyMS v1.0.0 has just been released! Everyone should update for the many new features and bug fixes, which include:
  • Online version checker
  • Graphics and sound inserters/perviewers for PyICE
  • GRP previews in PyDAT
  • Increased graphics loading speeds (thanks to PIL, which is an optional extra download for the source users, but comes pre-packed for the EXE users)
  • Saving/Loading from MPQ's and embedded MPQ's in PyDAT and PyAI

In PyICE, I loaded an iscript.bin from default, opened the Scourge in the Iscript Editor, and Right-Clicked on the 42 in the first imgul of ScourgeInit. I got a popup error with a trackback number. I hit the Contact link twice.

Code: Select all

While in the new Preview/Insert menu, when I try to view the Maelstrom Hit (at very end of list) entry in Images, I get another error.

Code: Select all

Same as above, but with the 984 Maelstrom Overlay (Large) in Images.dat entries.
