This is a very simple editor to change the parameters of any .veh-Files in Automobilista.
I change those parameters quite frequently and found myself getting frustrated with having to go into every single file and changing all the parameters individually, so I created this tool in order to speed up the process a little bit.
WARNING: It overrides the .veh-Files, so make sure to create a backup if you want to keep using the original files!
To use the Tool, simply direct it to the folder where the files are located. The Load Drivers Button will then be enabled. When clicking it, the left Panel will populate with all the Drivers the Tool could find.
After that, the upper left Box will be enabled. From there. you can pick which parameters you want to change. The two panels are connected, so when scrolling around, you can reference which original driver you are changing. The Mousescroll is buggy, so when one of the panels is not moving in unison with the other, just hit the middle of the Scrollbar, and it should readjust itself. After each parameter is edited, hit the "Save Parameter" Button, otherwise the changes are lost upon picking another parameter to edit. When ready, press the "Override Drivers" Button, which will override all the files the tool found in the beginning.
I assume the easiest way to use this is by referencing an Excel Table in accordance to the Original Drivers, and then just Copy-and-Pasting the Values into the Textboxes.
I hope someone gets some kind of use out of it, and if you find any errors, or got some ideas on how to improve the tool, let me know!
- Made error messages more user-friendly.
- Tweaked the way veh.Files will be saved.
- Added ability to edit up to five drivers per veh.File.
I have done some looking around and have only found Driver, Driver1, and Driver2 labels, so if there is any other way they are referenced out there, my program will probably throw an error.
- Fixed a bug where the program wasn't able to identify anything other than "Driver"-Labels. It now should allow for editing Vehicle-Files that has two Drivers ("Driver1" and "Driver2")
Let me know about them and I should be able to fix them.
Also, with this update, you will only be able to sort by the primary driver, and the secondary driver will be listed below him/her. Sorry for the inconvenience.
When selecting any parameter other than "Driver Name", you will see that there are some empty lines, indicating that the Original Driver not having a corresponding parameter, is connected to the one above. It will make more sense once you see it.
I have not been able to troubleshoot this version too much, so take it with a grain of salt, and I'd actually stick with version 1.1.1 if you don't use vehicle-files with several drivers.
As always, let me know about any bugs or ideas!
- Added ability to sort by Original Driver Name and the selected property, independent of each other, in order to filter through the drivers that need to be changed.
- Added File-Location of the Drivers in the Properties that can be selected, for better overview.
- Fixed a bug that would incorrectly display various Properties.
- Fixed bugs that would allow user-input that might cause errors.
- Due to no complaints from users, this will be the 1.0 Version. Further revisions possible, feel free to comment with suggestions.
- Minor Changes to the Form-Window
