      Trying to run the Python version of the Catalog. Alas, no luck.
      Does it require any other dependencies, like maybe Gtk components? I only have Python 3.8.5 x64 installed.
      I know my Python runtime works, because PyGlossary works.

      The exe launcher is fine, btw.

      Keep up being awesome.
      :D

        More or less, yeah.

        I was looking for a way to convert my Babylon Translator dictionaries, so that they are useable with Lingoes, which I have reinstalled recently.
        http://lingoes.net/en/index.html
        (almost dead, but still coughing blood this morning, therefore theoretically still alive by my standards)
        ;D

        An offline dictionary/translator can have its uses sometimes.

        Ah, I see.

        I'm mostly into collecting rare glossaries of obscure German sociolects between 1250 and WWII-ish. That's why I wrote that Bookwyrm thing to help me track down that stuff.

      ('twas 13 FPs 'only' on August 22)
      => some antiviruses are not what they used to be...
      :(

      Also, when I try to access Bookwyrm, I am getting a 'Bad Cert Domain' SSL error.
      "kultcds.com utilise un certificat de sécurité invalide. Le certificat n'est valide que pour les noms suivants : feedmedicallake.org, www.feedmedicallake.org (Code d'erreur : SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN)"
      https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=kultcds.com

      You might want to look further into these two (minor, yet a tad annoying) issues.
      1. Hallfiry
        Hallfiry
        First of all: iI you downloaded the catalog from the link Iposted here on hive, it will be the old version. I uplaoded a new one recently, youc an find it through the catalog page on KultCDs.
        2. The exe being recognized as a virus is of course a false positive. I guess it's because I had it built as a standalone EXE. I'll see if it works better as a folder with DLLs and stuff, so it doesn't have to write any aux-files.
        3. That ssl thing is quite simple: I've not bought (or actually subscribed to) an SSL certificate, because my website handles no sensitive data. (There are no logins or anything) That error sounds like you somehow tried to open HTTPS://kultcds.com/Bookwyrm instead of HTTP://kultcds.com/Bookwyrm

        EDIT: I decided to buy a certificate.

        My version of the catalog is the 2020-08-21 one, downloaded using the link from the KultCDs site.

        I know these are FPs. I am simply pointing out that more and more AVs report this exe as an issue. For the record, I am perfectly aware that the scan results on VirusTotal have to be taken with a grain of salt, as they may be using beta signature files on detection engines setup differently than the average user would on his desktop/laptop.

        I have reported about the https issue for BookWyrm because in this tweet
        https://twitter.com/Hallfiry/status/1299088590966849536
        the link to it is pointing to the https version. I am surprised nobody cared to report that one tbh.
        Now that it has its own cert, it is working as intended.

      Hello!
      I'm not sure if this is exactly beta related (may be alpha), but do you have any info about the times when Archdruid was a thing and Demon Hunter was more of an anti-caster? Namely, some of their icons (Spore Cloud for AD, Mind Lock and Soul Siphon for DH) are neither on Scrolls of Lore, nor in WoW files, and I need them for complete picture.
      Even a blurry screenshot thumbnail or shaky E3 video would be enough.

        The data isn't perfectly clean. A few CDs are there twice, sometimes files aren't listed, even though they should be, etc.
        Someday we'll have to set it up again properly, ideally by taking the original catalog files and building up the database from them.

      Hello Hallfiry,

      I'm curious, may I have the Beta files? I'm interested to see how they used to work in the past (the game).

        I already answered your question. Cracks are provided for 1.03, 1.21, 1.32 (Assuming I made no typo on the page), aswell as a map editor for 1.21. If you mean campaign, then you'll have no luck. It wasn't included in the BNET beta.

        Only that there's now a mirror. Sadly it's not very reliable, but since he provides it for free, I have no moral right to complain.
        However I plan on setting up a dedicated machine for the catalog within the next year. I'm currently looking for employment and once that's all sorted out, I can invest some more money into the kultcds project.

        Yeah, I noticed already that the temporary mirror was unfortunately not that great overall. Still better than nothing, though. Therefore we should consider ourselves to be lucky.

        Good luck with your future new job.

      Hi! I'm doing stuff related to the history of Warcraft for university. I was interested in knowing more about WHEN Blizzard decided to include WHAT in the lore. For example, I reckon they didn't think of Night Elves by Warcraft 1. Are there any documents on when they made those decisions? I came to ask you because you're the knowledgeable guy on WC3 stuff =)

      P.S. — I just found your alpha music thread. I can't believe I missed O_O

      For some reason, your latest post in the WC3 Pre-release material thread does not appear.
      I suggest you to remove it and re-post it.
