Grf category system

Post by Jezulkim » 17 Apr 2006 10:28

"Tired of looking for a grf on the grf status window for hours? Do you want to make your life easier? Then the grf category system if right for you!"

This is pretty much what the text above says. Simple grfs with only action 8 and grfid FFFFFFFF.

Interesting, my .grf config files are generally laid out rather sanely (Have to, with about six or seven different configurations that I use), haven't had to worry about the contents of the newgrf menu though.

I can definatly see the use, as I used to once use one giant configuration file for all manor of sets.

Would be nice if you could collapse and expand the different categories, just like folders in Windows Explorer.

Yeah, it would be. Too bad that there's no grf action for that.
Btw, a bit off topic, do you know that your sig has magic pink background? or is it just my internet explorer that can't support transparency?

IE (especially the earlier IEs) and transparent PNGs rarely mix well. It looks fine here in Firefox.
To get a good answer, ask a Smart Question. Similarly, if you want a bug fixed, write a Useful Bug Report. No TTDPatch crashlog? Then follow directions.

Yeah, I now use PNG transparancy because GIF got some quality loss. It displays quite fine here in FireFox.

Actually, I would think this should be rolled into the Patch as an official feature.

Sure, do whatever that makes you and Tycoonez community happy :)

The only thing that you have to do is just leave my name on the grf description field.

You forgote the credits in GRF description field. ;)

Anyway nice idea Jezulkim, only it gets bit boring at first ordering everything right to its place.

Good work, it was little painful to encode all those files, wasn't it? :)

Could you give me the link to that translation so I can add it to the first post?
