Hi agdurrette,

I had a quick look at HalitePortable, and I do not think there is a need to get PAL to write the specific XML settings for the download folder. Actually, if you would, then the user would never be able to choose it's own preferred folder.

PAL 2.1 has another feature which deal with the %PAL:(Last)PackagePartialDir%. It is used to update the entire path (instead of just the drive-letter) in settings files.
The good thing about this feature is that you can include 'Halite.xml' into the DefaultData folder plus a matching 'Halite PortableSettings.ini' which contains the 'LastDrive=X:' & 'LastDirectory=\PortableApps\Halite Portable'. The settings in 'Halite PortableSettings.ini' need to match the paths in 'Halite.xml', so on first run it will update the path to where the user installed it. This gives the user the option to decide to change the path after-wards without issues. Then on the next times HalitePortable gets used on different drive-letters (or maybe even paths) the launcher automatically updates the path and so it points to the 'HalitePortable' folder.

Here are the specific settings you will need in your Launcher 'Halite Portable.ini':

[FileWrite1]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\settings\Halite.xml
Find=%PAL:LastDrive%\
Replace=%PAL:Drive%\

[FileWrite2]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\settings\Halite.xml
Find=%PAL:LastPackagePartialDir%\
Replace=%PAL:PackagePartialDir%\

Here is a copy of the DefaultData settings I used.

Let me know if you have additional questions !

Sorry about dropping out of

Sorry about dropping out of chat, I accidently left pchat up when I went to church, got back home realized it was up and closed it out because I have to get some work done.

I have the language files I will work on that tonight. I will take a second and see if that file write works. I did the file write last night but could not get it to work, I think I left out "%PAL:DataDir%".

Thanks for the help.

EDIT: I got the file write to work by changing

Find=%PAL:LastDrive%\
Replace=%PAL:Drive%\

To

Find=%PAL:LastDrive%
Replace=%PAL:Drive%

Should the default data go in Data\DefaultData ?

Apologies accepted :)

Something I could not tell you anymore is the xpath to the language setting in Halite.xml file:

Type=XML text
XPath=/ini/globals/halite/serial[@signature="serialization::archive"]/Halite[@class_id="0"]/lang_dll

XPaths are a bit tricky to figure out, the rest I leave up to you to play and test with ! Smiling

Ah, another last thing, I realized HalitePortable picks-up the local settings in 'Local Settings\Application Data' when ever Halite is locally installed. (Folder is in XP, not sure what that folder would be in Vista/7). You need to find a solution for that.

I guess I will add multi

I guess I will add multi language support in a later release. Multi language support looks like it will be the easiest I will see if I can do it in the next release.

Which settings are getting picked up. When I installed Halite it had settings in 'Local Settings\Application Data\Halite' but when I copied Halites program files and ran it from my desktop it put the settings in the same folder that the Halite (on my desktop) was in. I will see what can be done.
