@GP: Version Changer

Post by Nuttzy99 » Fri Dec 26, 2003 11:03 pm

GP, in the next version of EM I'll be making it so that you can change the EM version right from settings page. But this is no good to people that have already blown away their EM files. So I'm going to include the version changer right in the EM distribution. I did cleanup the code a bit, and added a warning that they should remove the version changer when done using it (since you don't need the EM password to access it). Ok?

Heh, you've actually got your name included in an error message now :P

If you are trying to reinstall this version, change the EM version number from the Admin Control Panel under EasyMOD Settings. Or you could also use the EM Version Changer (by GPHemsley) found in the admin/mods/easymod/includes directory.

I have no problem with you including it in the package. Based on the changes you attached above, though, I have updated my version to be more like me. I've also corrected some problems that you (may have) had in your version. I also took the opportunity to update the webpage for it, including a new preview screenshot.

UPDATE (2007-02-08): New version available here.

You mean changing the "if" to a "while"? No, it should be written as an if since the way I changed it, it will only be getting one value. I have no problem adding...

That's not the only thing I changed, though.... Besides, what's the difference? The new version works fine -- I tested it.

You know what, I have some more changes to do.... Gonna release a new version. I'll include the if() instead of while(), though they both work just the same. :P

You're not supposed to enter the version you have.. you're supposed to change the current version to a different one. EasyMOD checks the version number when deciding if installation should continue. By changing the version number, you trick EM into thinking you need to install/upgrade. ;)
