Version 2.0 Preview (as of 17 Nov 2011)
No, I haven't been idle since the almost unnoticed successful launch of version 1! I've been working
on what is sure to be the equally unnoticed Version 2.0.
I not only wanted to add some new features, but i also wanted to amaze and astound my legion (*) of
loyal followers with my natural ability regarding color selection and UI prowess. The following are
the new features I'm adding (followed by some screen shots):
- The ability to save a weapon in the Advanced Visualization form. This will allow the user
to retrieve a weapon and tweak it without having to remember how he left it.
- The ability to set the contrast and brightness of the visualized weapon to more closely
match the loaded environment photo
- The ability to visualize any PNG file that exists in the saved item folder (even if
CamoPicker didn't create it)
- The ability to elect to work only in Advanced mode, or only in Simple mode with the click
of a button.
- The ability to load an environment image and select a paint system in the Advanced
- The ability to load the last-used environment image (without having to browse for it)
- The addition of a setup utility to help those that are less than proficient in the ways
- Added some visual enhancements in the form of control colors.
Here are some screenshots of the work-in-progress:
Simple Visualization Form - The groups of controls are more clearly seen due to the blue header
areas on the group boxes. You can also see the new contrast and brightness controls, as well as a
subtle overall remodelling of the whole form. Keep in mind that the form as you see it now is
still in a state of flux and still needs some tweaking.
The following images are of the new Advanced Visualization form - Once again, you'll notice that
the control group boxes are easier to see. You'll also not the ability to do almost everything
in the form that you can do in the Simple form (with differences being dictate by the varying
purpose of the form. In order to implement the extra functionality, I had to add tabs to the
right side in order to keep the form within the 1024x768 resolution constraints.
(*)Legion - A typical Roman legion was comprised of approximately 5000
individuals, but I prefer the much more loose Paddedwall definition which claims "almost 10" individuals.
