Good to hear that updating Ubuntu solved the issue. We are testing with fresh installs internally and have not run into this problem.

We're always happy, just never satisfied. Thanks for the updates regardless.

=== Algodoo 1.8.4, 2010-12-01 ===
* NEW: Buttons for removing a bound button or geom controller.
* NEW: "Expand UI" button for expanding all expandables.
* IMP: More precision in slider values.
* FIX: Bug concerning "lucky aiming" of sliders, i.e. hitting a nice round value.
* FIX: Rare bug that would cause a slider to show another value than it was set to.

Happy?

Expandables in settings window looks completely useless. Window is already big enough to display all settings why hide something?

Re: 1.8.3 beta

Post by Kilinich » Fri Nov 26, 2010 4:13 pm

* FIX: Attraction is now applied based on the center of geometries instead of composite bodies. The behaviour is kept for older scenes.

Good but why you don't fix same bug with airFriction? Looks like it's the same...

=== Algodoo 1.8.3, 2010-11-26 ===
* IMP: With force visualization on, forces are now caluclated even when simulation is paused.
* IMP: Added maximum force arrow size.
* FIX: force/velocity settings now show up in options whenever an object has visualization on.
* FIX: Enabled auto-position of texture on planes.
* FIX: Attraction is now applied based on the center of geometries instead of composite bodies. The behaviour is kept for older scenes.
* FIX: Solved problem with button selectors (i.e. mirror, motor, ...).
* IMP: Major changes to expandables: better looking, with mouse-over cursor change and with a small button to toggle between default size and full size. Also, the expand-bar never moves to left/top anymore.
* NEW: Buttons for finding scene folder and saved plot files in OS.
* FIX: May have fixed the huge "Algodoo sometimes takes very long time to switch language/skin/scale" bug.
* FIX: Tool options button will no longer fade out underlying windows.
* NEW: Brush tool multidraw erase now erases selected first (if any).

This should HOPEFULLY fix both the "Algodoo freezes when switching language/skin/..." and the "Cannot click anything" bugs. At least I have failed to reproduced either in 1.8.3. Please confirm!

A 64bit Linux binary might be nice for paying customers (we didn't even get 1.8.0) ... I hope, at least for the next final you will have something.

Great Job!

Still no aerodynamics... :(

@ emilk. Ehm maybe a idea. Make a blog and ask people to vote for there most used tool. You can use that information for when some tool go hidden. And let the standerd function be a full extended menu of everything. If it crashes you dont have to extent it all again.

GrZ Ianno.


Ps. Sorry for mij BAD english for the moment...

YES! Air Friction calculation got improved! Now I can continue working on my artillery scene. At least for me that's a big improvement, thanks.

is it possible to implement "apply force through script"? If not, how come?

Youre making the best of it all emil . Well done so far!! I like the new interface style. i now let all disapear i dont want to use. makes it much easier and faster to use. Thx a lot!!!

I believe there should be a big "Warning!" sign somewhere.

Users who expect this to be a preview of a cool upgrade with some optimizations are going to be disappointed. This version filled with bugs and not the hard-to-notice ones that you see Kilinich posting all of the time. Download this only if you want to test an unstable version.

Other than that, I think it's great you're posting this. Keep up the good work guys!

That's really cool, but i think i go back to 1.8.0, because 1.8.2 crashes sometimes

I've noticed that I don't need "expand all" button.

We can recover our setting easily.
What we have to do is to rename config.cfg to myconfig.phn.
And then, we can recover our setting by opening myconfig.phn after resetting Algodoo. :)

Just for an example, I've created the scene which expand buttons.
expand_config.phn
(3.22 KiB) Downloaded 652 times
(NOTE: This file is not what just renamed config.cfg but will work.)

I don't think my setting file is perfect, but I believe that advanced users can create it by themselves for their best setting. ;)

Please just add a thyme variable that when set to true expands all menus and hides the buttons. Would there be any problem with that?

What new tracer icon with border is not good idea - tracers i used in many scenes for visual effects and now it's not solid...

Re: 1.8.2 beta

Post by Kilinich » Fri Nov 05, 2010 11:20 am

If you care about advanced users - just add "Expand all", because then I mess with my config and wonna reset it - it will takes a lot of nerves to expand everything back. Sorta "Expert mode" as it was.

Re: 1.8.2 beta

Post by emilk » Fri Nov 05, 2010 10:53 am

Thanks all for the feedback!

gradyfitz: Yes, the arrow switching in the material menu is quite a bit confusing, but without it you can expand a menu that is on the bottom of the screen and vsv. One solution could be to have buttons on both end, but that would clutter things up.

Kilinich: yes, I can see how a "expand everything" button would be convenient, but it's really only for already very advanced users (i.e. people here), to save you all of what, 30 seconds expanding everything once, and so I think Algodoo can do without it. Being able to hide the expand buttons does make a bit of sense (they do clutter things up a bit), but I think I'm gonna try to slim them down instead. We're working on that!

Re: 1.8.2 beta

Post by gradyfitz » Fri Nov 05, 2010 9:13 am

I like this new interface, and it seems a good job to me :), though I think it seems a little confusing if the arrow switches sides in a multi-section menu such as the materials menu (I'm not entirely sure why this is). I really like the ability to minimize the tool bar to one tool to only show the selected tool. I think this is definitely an improvement, good job :).

I think it could be better if expansion buttons were the same icon and compression buttons were the same, but I'm not sure (as I haven't seen the difference), though this is probably something that in time I will end up preferring :). Both ways make sense, it may be because when compressing the menu from the top down removes things from the bottom rather than the top (which is desirable).

Good job :).

toolbar buttons don't alway's select when clicking them.

Other that that, its fine.


@kilinich: i have nothing wrong with the double click to expand/compress the bar. But i think that a option to remove the expandable button (all icons and menu's will be shown) so we can have the UI how quite alot have gotten used too.

But i like the fact disable options hide.
E.g. Motor speed when motor/autobrake are both unchecked
