Cool, thanks for updating this to the latest specs.

Can we get the rest of Beta Testing Team on this before I move it?

In Addition

Jwyanze, use the posting format stickied at the top of beta testing, and make the header 'AllChars Portable 4.0 Development Test 1.

Thanks.

Some Issues

Some Issues

  • in appinfo.ini, you need to fix the [Version] section.
  • App doesn't run. Displays a popup message that says:
    Configuration error in file:
    AllChars Portable\App\AllChars\AllChars.Ini

    AllChars needs that ini file present, so start with it in DefaultData.

  • remove the space in the NAME value in your script

Nice!

You did really well on this, and thanks for updating. Here's the usual small stuff.

  • The description in the appinfo.ini has keyboard spelled wrong.
  • You're missing App\Readme.txt, and Other\Source\AppSource.txt. Copy and edit them from other apps.
  • In AllCharsPortable.ini, there settings name shouldn't have a space.
  • In the installer source, the Name should have a space between AllChars and Portable, and ShortName should not.
  • In AllCharsPortable.ini changes AppAllChars to App\AllChars.
  • Change the 100 on like 165 of the source to 0 as we're dropping splash screen fades.
  • The launcher version number can probably go up to like 1.5.5.0.
  • It doesn't look like you need to update any drive letters, so delete lines 202-207 in the source.
  • Rename App\DefaultData\allchars.ini to AllChars.ini.
  • The legal copyright in the source should be PortableApps.com & Contributers.

That's it. Looks great, nice work

App Appears to be Gone

There is a 404 Error on the download; in fact, the entire site it refers to seems to be gone... Sad

No, the site is still there.

No, the site is still there. jwyanze's account probably got disabled/deleted from being inactive too long.
Anybody got a mirror?
