Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.17

Hey ! Been 10+ years since I last said thank you for your work ! THANK YOU :) Launching DBST once in a while, I appreciate the improvements ! Maybe I'm doing wrong, but I can't set my own shortcuts. Is there an easy way to do that ? e.g: I'd like to add a toggle emulation start/stop shortcut to key...

weird... your DemoBaseST doesn't like NAS :D
I've experimented with running DBST on my NAS and it's working ok. Is your NAS set up with a drive letter shortcut or is it always accessed via a URI or server location?

Did you recently move DBST to the NAS? If it was working for you before then it should still work as I don’t think I’ve changed anything to do with launching STeem.

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.17

Sorry to hear that. Could you try running the recovery.exe program and seeing if it downloads any files. If so then that may fix it. Let me know.

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.17

By the way, just testing the current version of DemoBaseST, any screen I select crashes if I set the emulator window to fullscreen. (Core i5 8th gen. notebook with Intel graphics, full HD, Win 10 21H2) Sadly I think this is a fault with STeem 3.2. In the DBST Preferences box if you select Full Scre...

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.17

Maybe I am looking for the wrong thing, but I see a field named "release_date" with the content "1998-10-10" e.g. here: https://demozoo.org/api/v1/productions/309425/ Maybe that matches what you're looking for? Not all productions have that info (for reasons like "not known...

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.17

Sadly the release date doesn't appear in Fujiology Archive but it does appear individually in DemoZoo, at least it does for the few I've checked at random. I'd need to find a way to obtain the release dates and then match them to my database. There's the Demozoo API https://demozoo.org/api/v1/ and ...

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.17

Well done, I like it, I just download the new version. One wish I have, would be for each demo/screen a tag with release year, is that possible? So it would be possible to sort / filter the list by year, for example to be able to follow the advances of effect by year, or search a demo by year, etc....

Noticed that the version number in the main window says 1.122 and not 1.13 though? Hi, you need to do the update. In the options page (the 7th icon near the bottom-right or F7) then click Update.

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Yasss!!!! Good news. Thanks for persevering with me.
A good test would be to go to the preferences icon, find the STeem volume slider, adjust it a bit, and see if anything happens. Hopefully not 😁

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

thanks. I can unpack that now but the user file seems fine.
The error message you attached looks like from an older version of DBST. Have you redownloaded the latest one yet and unzipped it over your current installation?

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

Possibly, but even WinRAR can’t unpack it.
You could also try renaming the user.SQLite file to something else, then starting DBST. It will create a fresh file. Will be interesting to see if it works. The underlying code fault will be there though until you download or update to 1.122

Re: DemoBaseST updated to v1.12

thanks, but hmm it says the file is unknown format or damaged.
Perhaps just try downloading the latest version (it will be 1.122) from here: https://www.demobase.st/package/DBST_Install.exe .
Thanks for your patience!
