Post news Report RSS Development and Apt Editor

Development seemed to be on hold but no worries, it continued and will feature some new options.

Posted by on

As with one of the latest version we created a fork to work on a completely new engine to drive the Mod SDK. WrathEd 0.x and 1.x was still pretty much experimental and was built for easy extensibility of the game definitions per xml.
2.x will feature a new attempt which should result in lower loading and compile times. Some of the algorithms have been rewritten to speed up loading of original game files, which were also implemented in the latest public version and made these actions 10 to 50 percent faster, depending on machine and file.
For 2.x I also added better configuration files that allows for much easier customization of settings. The user can now select where WrathEd should save the files it creates instead of dumping them into Documents\WrathEd. In addition a log will finally be implemented that gives better overview in case of an error. Error messages themselves will be trimmed down so the user just gets shown what he needs to know, everything else will be in the log. Another feature that was heavily missed in older versions were hot keys. These are now fully integrated.

In addition to all these changes we are currently focusing our efforts to create the first real Apt Editor to create custom screens more easily in an environment that also gives you a preview. It will also feature the scripting used. Though it will be a low level variant at first we will try to implement an editor that shows you the high level action script and gives you the ability to also write new script in that high level language.

Yes, might not support them 100% in the first version (as I will optimize it for TW and KW) but I plan on supporting TW, KW, RA3, and maybe BfME and BfME2.

When is the new version of WrathEd coming out?

There are a few bugs that need to be fixed, including:
the reckoner bug,
the ability to edit AI,
inheriting,
and the crash when opening TW skudef files
