PimpBot 3.6.2

that was a typo above, the latest version is 3.6.2
code:
v3.6.2 (2009-09-22)
* Compiler: fixed startup bug

v3.6.1 (2009-09-20)
* Compiler: fixed bug not detecting wizard image in DropFolder
* Compiler: replaced 7za.exe with 7zr.exe (ZipTag requires manual 7za installation)
* Compiler: removed some legacy code
* RunTime: added native 7-zip support


if you use the commandline switches of pimpbot or its installers a lot, let me also point out the latest version of RunWithParameters has now improved support for pimpbot installers!

thanks for the help, it might be worth adding a list or something to select between Milkdrop and Milkdrop2 since some of us still have the old one too

Any idea when the updates out?

the new version of pimpbot is actually ready, it's just some translations missing.

anyway, for now you can use this version!

i got one question. is it a common situation, that people have both folders (MilkDrop and MilkDrop2) or is it usually just one of the two?

sorry about the late reply!
uuum i think it might just be a few of us, the source is available for MD1 and some people use the Wii mote hack which is MD1, the current version (for the forseeable future) is the Milkdrop2 foler now though

also on another note, while it does now install to MD2 itd be nice to install into the same directory that you select the presets from ie Milkdrop2/Username/Presets here rather that Milkdrop2/Presetname/Presets here

you can do that already by clicking the Include Subfolders checkbox. that way it will not use the pack's title as target folder, but replicate the file-structure you have chosen. however, this means you can't just select your user folder, because pimpbot replicates the file-structure inside that folder.

btw, thanks for the input. i don't think many milkdrop artists are even aware something like pimpbot exists. good to have some feedback!

ps: you might want to have a look at the dropfolder feature (check attached image for explanation), it's usually the fastest way to create an installer

forget that dropfolder image, the file-structure has changed in the meantime (though it might still work).

instead, have a look at this video!

PimpBot 3.6.4

yeah, i changed to much without testing it all. so here's a new version.

code:
v3.6.4 (2009-12-30)
* Compiler: window hides when testing installer
* Compiler: fixed bug in AVS settings
* Compiler: fixed directory for MilkDrop2 textures



Download PimpBot

also, there are two videos explaining the drag & drop feature - the quickest way to make your installers. one for AVS and another for MilkDrop. enjoy!

PimpBot 3.6.5

always the same - once i'm at it, i can't stop it. so here are some further improvements.

as deviantart still renames .pimp files to .7z, i have decided to support opening .7z files with the runtime as well. also notable is the dropfolder improvement. you can now name your splash-screen something like #FF00FF.bmp (or just #F0F.bmp) and it will use that color as transparency key. however, this only works with the colours already supported (rgb + cmy)!

code:
v3.6.5 "Earth Year" (2009-12-31)
* Compiler: added DropFolder detection for splash-screen transparency key
* Compiler: renamed some dialogs
* Compiler: improved file-filters in some dialogs
* Compiler: renamed bitmaps to support file-filters
* RunTime: added support to install from .7z files
* last distributions accidently shipped with outdated RunTime



Download PimpBot

i said it before, but i really hope this is the last pimpbot update - unless there are bugs to fix!

PimpBot 3.6.7

lol - that's two new versions in under one week - when you tried not to, even.

I wonder how many versions you can make if you actually try to

i wanted to mention there's a known bug in the last couple of versions. you can avoid it by choosing a custom icon and checkboxes.

PimpBot 3.7

if you're entire family likes to use pimpbot on the same computer, welcome the new multiuser support. however, like some other undocumented features, it needs to be enabled through the pimpbot.ini. though i doubt anyone really needs this

code:
3.7 (2010-01-26)
* Compiler: now works with multiuser settings
* Compiler: switched to NewAdvSplash plugin (support for Bitmap, JPEG & GIF)
* Compiler: fixed a bug not copying default icons
* Compiler: fixed bug when using background music
* RunTime: fixed a bug when pack contain no subdirs
* added and updated some scripts
* fixed and improved the installer
* updated default icon



the other big news concerns splash screens. while there is still no support for mp3 soundfiles (there are workarounds), you can now use three kinds of images: jpeg, bitmap and gif.

PimpBot 3.8

tadaa! wasn't planned to release another pimpbot 3 version, but here is another major update. fixing some bugs, adding new features. i consider this a transition release on the way to 4.0!

so, let's look at what has changed:

-ape installation improved and simplified: no more dialogs, the installer should always make the right choice
-winamp3 support has been axed, no reason to keep it
-tighter dropbox integration
-runtime and backup now support alternate visualization directories and multiuser environments
-new scripts for power-users, including a new version of the migration script and another to compile many .pimp files into installers (that's useful if you want to update all your old installers at once)
-bugfixes, bugfixes, bugfixes

(list of all changes)

I have a duplicate Video Delay. Is this the result of an old installer or is delay.ape still bundled with new installers?

delay.ape is the right one (that's the version distributed with winamp), delete all others you got (e.g. videodelay.ape)

if you ever consider upgrading to 4.x, but want to stick with 3.x for the moment, please update to the latest version. should make a later transition smoother!
