  1. Asterisk Connect Tool

    v0.43 is released. Renamed "Clear Saved Default Fields" (which was a naming blunder anyway) to "Reset Program Settings". Fixed where saved pre- and post-launch application paths were not being cleared when selecting the "Reset Program Settings" option. Fixed application focus issues with programs launched via the pre- and post-launch options. The game should receive proper focus now. Added Feature: Menu option to open the selected game's install directory.

    v0.42 is released. Added GSA query proof-of-concept with basic functionality (finally), as well as the ability to pre-launch or post-launch a secondary application when the game launches. Can be found at the link above.

    V0.41 is out. Until the downloads section here is working again, you can find updates at w3dhub. https://w3dhub.com/forum/files/file/11-asterisk-connect-tool/
  4. Asterisk Connect Tool

    Here's a hotfix for the one-time error message issue in the previous version. The only other changes since the last version are a couple of labels I decided to change. A side note about something else that may happen. One user reported that his antivirus didn't like this file, and labeled it a "confuser". This is due to the use of an obfuscator program on my part. Basically I run Asterisk through a program that makes it difficult for others to decompile and see my code. This is common practice though, so I'm not really sure why an antivirus would feel threatened by this.
  5. Asterisk Connect Tool

    Update! Here's the rundown for version 0.40: Added Feature: Help -> Reset menu, with various options inside for clearing some or all of the program's saved settings. More to come here! Added Feature: Menu item to toggle automatic saving of last used connection data (on by default still). Fixed bug where IRC profiles were not correctly linked to server profiles. Fixed bug where the title of secondary windows could read incorrectly in specific circumstances. Fixed bug where the program was performing an IRC join and !auth for single player launch operations. (whoops) Fixed bug in setting-saving code for single-player instances. Changed some minor UI elements. Added "GSA Server List" button. It is disabled for now as it doesn't do anything besides spit out a list of around 14 IP addresses + ports, but hopefully one day I'll have it completed. I forgot to mention last time that with the way this works, if you are already identified on IRC with the same name that you intend to use with this program, it will fail because the name is already in use. Nothing I can do really. No new known bugs in this version. Check it out!

    Thanks! It started out as basically a "spiritual successor to RenIP" in my head, but it has become quite a bit more now. In the future, I hope to add a renlist-like GSA query/list feature if I can figure it out, as well as a couple other things.
  7. Asterisk Connect Tool

    Hello! In May of last year, I began working on a simple direct connect tool that would be compatible with Renegade and any other mod running on the W3D engine. It was a simple idea, and it didn't take me long to produce something tangible. But then someone said, "hey, why don't you add (X feature)..? That would be cool..". So I added (X feature). Then someone else said "hey, why don't you add (Y feature)..? That would be cool..". So with a little bit of feedback from a handful of people, I made some changes and reiterations, and had a few new ideas of my own along the way. After a while it even began to look alright (unlike the first several versions). A friend of mine made me a nice logo, and it started to really pull together. I settled on the name "Asterisk" because in batch language, the asterisk "*" character, aka the wildcard character, is used for "all-inclusive" situations. "Select all" so to speak. Since this tool is made to work with every Renegade-based mod that could exist, it just seemed fitting. Citizens of MPF and the rest of the Renegade modding world, I give you the W3D-Asterisk Connect tool! I have done everything I can to make this tool flow with an easy-to-use design. Here is a short list of features: A universal server connect tool, compatible with all Renegade-based mods on the W3D engine. A universal single-player game launcher. Save an entry for all of your W3D-based games and easily run them from here! The ability to save/edit/delete multiple server profiles for quickly changing between your various favorite games and servers. By default, the tool will retain the last set of data that was used to connect to a server. Multiple config options (with many more to come!) so that you can have things just the way you like them. It supports additional launch commands. (useful for developers) An IRC !auth feature for players with protected nicknames. No more joining IRC just to run one command and leave, this will do it for you! It has themes. Not entirely useful, but why not? (Themes are disabled currently pending a bug fix) Many features are still being developed. Stay tuned for updates! There are still a few things that are not quite right yet. There are a small handful of known bugs, but nothing debilitating (and mostly relating to themes or deleting profiles). If you find something amiss and want to tell me about it, please let me know here or via email (my email is listed in the Help -> Report a bug screen where it falsely says "version 1.0" Enjoy!

  9. Renegade requires Win XP Service Pack 3

    This has happened to me a few times on occasion, never at the same place in the campaign. Its also happened in multiplayer a couple times. The TT scripts guys are probably aware of it though.
