Good work on all these subtle fixes for GH. It's thankless work but is actually what makes the app good to use. And it's really good to use, these days. 8-)

2011-06-14 v1.531
- A password must be in settings before you can sign in
- Nicks are automatically registered if available
- Moved the X used for closing tabs to the bottom right
- Changed conflicting hotkeys
- Your nick is saved to registry whenever it is changed
- Fixed gridline setting saving
- Fixed a problem that could only happen if #gta2gh was set to +m mode
- Important notices from GTANet are displayed

edit: if you get purple messages with the text "1.531" or "SA" then download GH again (that bug was fixed a few minutes after release)

thanks another update. i noticed a closing button for tabs at the right bottom.

is it me or are there less people online? perhaps because with new version the chatserver is different.

ah wait... this is it:
11:39:27 --> Stick_Rpg_2 (sa-xx-x-xx-xx.saturn.infonet.ee) has joined #gta2gh
11:39:28 Stick_Rpg_2 was kicked by gta2ghbot (Update to v1.531 - http://gtamp.com/GTA2/gh -)
:)

a small nitpicker thing (not sure how you say that in English), the row bottom line does not end to the end. :P

All my screenshots since Windows 7 was released have been done in Windows 7 but I usually have it set to the classic win2k theme.

So far I only kick v1.524 and v1.528, anything newer is allowed. You must enter a password with v1.531, that could deter some users, especially if their english is bad and they don't know what to do.

I made the tab line shorter than the window since if you have many tabs open, it would overlap the X button but I could make it go all the way across when your tabs don't reach the side. The x button will be moved onto the active tab at some point. I don't even use the x button, I push ctrl+w.

The players combobox lines up better in Windows classic theme. I'll fix it for other themes.

that password forcing is problematic for online pakx.
it sets the default name to pakxped for autologin. If i set a password for that user someone else could take control over it when he reads the password.

If you want that nick then register it yourself. Why does that pack have a default username anyway? I don't want lots of people logging in with the same name.

edit: I see you just used it to track how many people logged in with that pak. You could set a default channel to join, registry key channels = #onlinepakx

it is not only for that purpose. it is also an indicator for others that this person is new and has everything that is included in online pakx. You can also ring that person by writing "pakxped".
And the tutorial tells them to change their nick.

I like the auto download from gta 2 maps website, but the messages it produce is extremely unclear.
13:07:21 Download complete: autodl.php?mmp=bc_ac.mmp - 7968kB at 718kB/s. Try joining again.
13:07:21 Processing archive: C:\Users\Lars\AppData\Local\Temp\gta2map.7z bc_ac_lite\classic1.TMP bc_ac_lite\classic1.TXT bc_ac_lite\objects.TMP bc_ac_lite\objects.TXT bc_ac_lite.TXT bc_ac.gci bc_ac.gmp bc_ac.jpg bc_ac.mis bc_ac.mmp bc_ac.scr bc_ac.sty bc_ac2.jpg bc_ac_lite.mis bc_ac_lite.mmp bc_ac_lite.SCR bc_awkward_cargo_readme.txt Audio\bc_ac.raw Audio\bc_ac.sdt bc_ac\classic1.mis bc_ac\classic1.SCR bc_ac\objects.mis bc_ac\objects.SCR bc_ac_lite\classic1.mis bc_ac_lite\classic1.SCR bc_ac_lite\objects.mis bc_ac_lite\objects.SCR bc_ac_lite bc_ac Audio Everything is Ok Folders: 3 Files: 27 Size: 12099199 Compressed: 7968447
Could this not be more like this:
13:07:21 Downloading map "bc_ac.mmp" complete (7968kB at 718kB/s)
13:07:21 Processing and installing map successful. To play it, try joining again or refresh map list.
and when something goes wrong a message like this:
13:07:21 Downloading map "bc_ac.mmp" is complete (7968kB at 718kB/s)
13:07:21 Processing and installing map failed. Error message: Could not find zip file.
13:07:21 Map "bc_ac.mmp" not installed correctly! Retry or report bug to author.
or
13:07:21 Downloading map "bc_ac.mmp" is complete (7968kB at 718kB/s)
13:07:21 Processing and installing map failed. Error message: Not enough disk space.
13:07:21 Map "bc_ac.mmp" not installed correctly! Retry or report bug to author.
even better would be that bc_ac.mmp is replaced with the real map name. In this case "BC - Awkward Cargo - Lite".

I would suggest keeping the message to max 3 lines with text. Else people might not read or remember it, haha. :mrgreen:

I wasn't going to release a version this early but GTANet services went down and GH was having trouble logging in without them.

2011-07-01 v1.533
- #gta2gh is joined even if NickServ is offline
- You must be in the same channel as a user to send them a message
- Player list is cleared if you are kicked from a channel
- Private messages are ignored from users that aren't on any of your channels

- Fixed tab order on settings window
- Fixed blinking textbox (changed it from multiline back to singleline)

It can pick the same map before going to all the others if that's what you mean. I've added shuffle maps without repeating (aka smart shuffle) to the todo list but even then, technically it wouldn't be "truly random" since it has to be based on some computation.

Works fine for myself and 11 others but I should add backup servers into GH again.

GH is heading back to the bad old days where it made lots of spam when signing in. The result being that nobody reads any of it.
