Card Creator

Release version 0.4 (Alpha) :Cheerleader:

Hello, v0.4 took more time as i planed but here it is.
I revised the CardCreators data management, it uses now png and gif metadata to store all necessary information inside the card itself, which is a huge plus when it comes to sharing the cards online.
Due to this new datamanagement all cards made with v0.3 or lower can not be edited or loaded into the CardCreator of v0.4 anymore, which means you would have to recreate all the cards you made so far per hand.
*Looking at the empty card section in our forum, i don´t think that this is a big problem, sadly*

What is new?
  • The CardCreator now uses image metadata to store all the card data inside the card itself.
    + You can now extract the card image and the card logo using the cardmanager.
    + You can easliy edit external cards (v0.4+).
    - Increased file size.

Release version 0.4.1 (Alpha)

Update, removed the memory leak which was caused by the ticker.
All old versions below 0.4.1 suffer from this bug.
But therefore you get some other features a bit earlier.

What is new?
  • Removed memory leak error in the ticker.
  • Replaced the default Java icon with a a new CTI icon (Currently there are 3 different icons, randomly choosen)

  • Unbound the ticker from the slideduration, PAGEUP= Strokerate + 1 PAGEDOWN = Strokerate - 1 (Set Strokerate to 0 and it will always match the slideduration, exactly like in the old system)
    • This is kind of a big design change, up to now the ticker was bound to the slideduration but this system had some flaws, for example a slideuration of 0,1 seconds led to a minimal strokerate of 10 per second (or zero but thats not the point).
      There was no way to run a very fast slideshow with a normal strokecount
      (Maybe a Mind Control card could order you to view a only image slideshow with a slideduration of 0,1 with only 1 stroke per second).
      So i made a new variable which takes care of the timeintervall, the Strokerate. Until now Strokerate and Strokecount adressed the same value and it was a bit confusing, i would propose to split them into this formular:
      eq1.gif

      The new buttons to change the strokerate are Pageup and Pagedown, you can also set the the strokerate to 0 and it will use the slideduration like it used to be, this is also the default value since the old system used a slidebound strokerate.
      The strokerate label is currently labeled as "ratio: ...", it sould be "rate:... " sorry to cause more confusion.


Near future:
  • Faster cardmanager update mechanic.
  • Better file filter to identify cards.
Known bugs:
  • Slideshow freezes if you delete the very last slide of an slideshow.
  • The "load" button can´t load cards outside the Cards folder.

Hey, you got spellcheck working? Nice!

As for the Metadata... that might just be a game changer. No more hot fixes in paint, no more having your TDC 0-9-4-7 split between laptop and desktop. No more breaking cards because you rearranged your porn folder.

This is becoming very interesting.

Did this new version make it so that you could no longer get the same picture or card more than once in a tease? I assume it didn't since it wasn't mentioned, but I figured I would ask ;)

Admittedly, I haven't had time to try this but...

You know, this could have other applications. Reverse it back to the roots of Sloganator and Advice Animals, it drastically simplifies the adoption of a meme. Download something you like made in this, open it, edit text on the original source image. Super easy, super fast. Provided the NSA doesn't mind people embedding secondary images into primary files. But you don't live in America, right?

Ha ^^ no not in america and i tought about this aswell but im not using memes much, so im not so interested, but if it is requestet i could quickly create some piece of software for that, but a webapplication would be the best if you want to reach many people...

But i don´t think that im the only one who had the idea of encoding files into images.
And there is always the flaw of an increased file size.
