GUI-based packrom utility

Topics on software tools like TileStudio, comments on documentation and tutorials (or the lack of) should go here.

I've installed Ubuntu during the weekend. I tested the tool and the map tool I'm working on and they don't work (GPF). Perhaps it's because the apps are being targeted for .NET 4.0 which has only partial support in MONO. Targeting for .NET 2.0 would have better chance to work it seems. So I'll try a simple form app with that older version to see what happens.

I'm using Visual Studio 2010 which I do believe has the latest framework version. I figured it wouldn't work because of this. Maybe I could try building using older version or simplify as you said.

In the mean time, I have Packrom 0.2.5 ready.

Changes:

-Packrom now saves correctly. It is now safe to open, modify, and re-save your .uze files
-Added functionality to the "save" menu option. Rewrites over currently open .uze file
-Added file filter when opening files

Once I get the time to learn SVN I will upload the binaries and the source to the Uzebox SVN repository.

That's fantastic! You are making something pretty interesting!
This makes things more easy, if you are like me, because I can use perefectly the "cmd" application, but I'm more comfortable with a GUI. Keep it up!

BTW I love to know that you are working on making it cross-platform.
I know i'm too young, but it doesn't matters. Maybe i'm a newbie, but i can learn very fastly

What about writing a short wiki tutorial while your at it? ;)
I'm using Visual Studio 2010 which I do believe has the latest framework version. I figured it wouldn't work because of this. Maybe I could try building using older version or simplify as you said.
I also use VS express 2010. However I noticed that in the project's properties you can select which version of the framework to use. By default it's 4.0 but you can go back to 2.0. For earlier versions, seems you need 3.5 installed. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb398202.aspx

Packrom 0.3 is ready!

Changes:

-Hex files can now be loaded and converted to .uze files, now this program does something useful!
-CRC32 is generated for loaded hex file.

I would like you all to try this out and post feedback and report any bugs. I know that the CRC32 and program size don't save in the .uze header yet. I didn't compile this one in the older .NET framework, sorry for those using MONO, but it might not work right.

Here are the sources for PackromGUI, I probably won't have time to get back to this or any of the Uzebox stuff I've been working on until the start of summer which is when my free time begins. In the mean time, if anyone wants to mess around with it, go ahead.

The program is written in VB .NET. Mind the messy and un-commented code :oops:

Thanks for sharing Brad! :) I'll add it to the source control.
