    Release 1.84.0.153 – 1464

    * Downloaded archives that failed to register are moved to the “Unknown” download folder
    * When autodetecting settings, mod language is set to Train Fever’s language.
    * Change. Download queue disabled (Train-Fever.net request)
    * Information sent to the TFGM server (to check for updates) is now encrypted.
    * Added RAR version to splash screen.
    * Added Error message for unsupported archive formats.
    * Added more error messages and handling.
    * Fix. Crash when archive didn’t exists in some cases.
    * Fix. Password dialog abort button didn’t work.
    * Fix. Crash when unregistering some mods.
    * Fix. Some mod formats didn’t install correctly.
    * Fix. Some Lua error messages didn’t fit in window.
    * Fix. Not all messages was converted to UTF8 in the Log window.
    * Fix. Lua Engine not reset properly in some cases.

    NOTE!
    Train-Fever.net wants me to disable the download button in the catalog. I’m trying to have a discussion with Stepke to see if we can solve this in another way. I’m not 100% sure what his reasons are but as a result, you can no longer queue downloads. They can only be downloaded manually one-by-one until we figure out a solution we both feel works.

    After adding a handful of the Russian mods I noticed they did not have the image_00.tga file in the archive,  I can easily add the image in the mod folder so I can see what the mod is while in game,  but is there an easy way to add the image so I can see it in TFGM?

     
    This would help as I can not read Russian ;-)

    The first principle of TFGM is to never modify/change the original archives. When registering a mod, any image found in the archive is placed in the cache folder for quicker access.

    TFGM doesn’t offer any functionality to substitute/add images to a mod (might be a good idea though).

    If you don’t mind, I think the easiest way is to simply add the image to the original archive and re-register the mod in TFGM. If you want, you can also add a translation to the archives info.lua and strings.lua before re-registering it.

    Thank you for using TFGM :)

    Release 1.86.0.160 – 1471

    * Added GamesaveManager
    * Added a TFGM sound folder
    * Added alarm function to timeline
    * Added timeline year synchronization
    * Added “settings lock” for mod configurations (on link update)

    * Change. Reduced some log data

    * Fix. Import count always showed 0.
    * Fix. Exception form crash if already open.
    * Fix. GOG root dir got “Train Fever\\” appended.
    * Fix. Memory leak when updating links.

    Timeline
    If you have set autosaves to every year, the timeline will be notified when the game year change.
    If the auto-sync button is enabled, the timeline will moved to the correct year on notification.
    On each item in the timeline there is an “alarm bell”. Toggle it to activate/deactivate the alarm.
    The alarm goes off when the timeline reaches the item’s start year. This can be good if you are waiting for a specific model to be available.

    GamesaveManager
    Keeps track of savegame files and groups them together.
    Analyses TF log file to match autosaves with save games, store map seeds and game loads.
    Because TF don’t flush the log file each time it is updated, TFGM isn’t notified of updates until TF saves the log file. This may happen during game play, but to be sure, TF must exit before TFGM so the full log can be fetched and parsed.

    Release 1.87.0.167 – 1483

    * Added a “Heightmap editor”, more info below.
    * Added a warning message if link import didn’t had an info.lua file
    * Added life% range colors in background of vehicle graph
    * Added more error handling when loading strings.lua
    * Added exception catch (silent) if log couldn’t be written to file.
    * Started to implement a new bug tracking system to get more details about these exception errors.

    Heightmap editor
    The biggest news is the heightmap editor. This isn’t really an “editor” per say, because you can’t change anything in the heightmap data.
    There are are however some tools to prepare the map:

    * Scale map to one of the 3 correct sizes.
    * Remove any color and alpha information.
    * Point and click on the map where you want the water level. Range values are calculated.
    * Export heightmap, colored and water mask for processing in paint program.
    * Export your map as a complete Map Mod!

    Other useful functions:

    * Histogram with water level indicator.
    * Contour line at cursor with water level indicator.
    * Water % coverage and warning if more than 33%
    * Warning if heightmap isn’t in the right format.

    When loading a heightmap it looks for the corresponding info.lua and presets the range, name and map seed.
    After exported as a map mod, do feel free to edit info.lua, strings.lua and image_00.tga
    If you have a Steam account, your profile is automatically added to the author section of info.lua.

    I have excluded the manual from the archive to reduce size by 2/3. It should be faster to download/update now.
