SSC 1.4.8 update for new event (Alien Encounter)

I had my own encounter with Aliens this morning and found when trying to save the video that the SSC errored.  This was caused by the SSC app getting confused by a new event in the player Journal called SystemsShutDown caused by the Alien (Thargoid?) pulling the ship from a jump.  I’ve made changes to make that more robust.

You can find the download link in the Changelog.

SSC 1.4.7 – minor bug fix

Just a small change for 1.4.7. I’ve updated the code around minimising the application to the notification area if that’s what’s been selected in the options. Double-clicking on the notification area icon will also hide/reveal the application.

SSC 1.4.5 available

The new version has a fix for the creation of sub-directories that I introduced in the version for E: D 2.2. Sorry about that.
Also there is the planet navigation option (consider it as needing some testing).

As requested I’ve started looking at the options around specifying the compression factor on jpg images saved. A small test program is working fine but at the moment it’s not working when integrated into the SSC. Not sure why, but when I have it fixed I’ll release another update.

SSC Changes on the way

I realised that there’s a few things need sorting on the SSC so the next version will be along soon.

I’ve added the planet navigation feature to give you heading based on start and end lat./long.

The functionality around the applications to launch needs some fixing.  Adding a new app can pick up a previous entry rather than starting from blanks, which is wrong.  It was also not updating the xml file properly when an entry was deleted.

I’ve also realised that the ‘body’ found on startup might be wrong because (for some unknown reason) FD have used ‘body’ and ‘bodyname’ for the same thing depending on the event.  Not sure what to do about that yet.

SSC 1.4.4

I’ve fixed a bug on the SSC around how the system and body names are acquired from the log file so that it better handles different situations.

SSC 1.3.2 update for netlog copy issues

The new 1.3.2 version of the SSC adds some more error handling around the copying of the netlog file to a temporary file.  I use the netlog file to get the current system that the CMDRs ship is in.

I have the application do this copy to avoid read/write issues with the netlog when in constant use by E:D and possiby other 3rd party apps.  There have been a couple of occasions where the copy process errors and it’s not clear why so there’s more error handling in this version in case it happens again.
