    Hi!

    I managed to develop a tool that may help a user automatically rename loads of images (either editable or BLP just as well) and provide individual border layers as well as actions, all for Photoshop users.
    The program is also able to add the right border automatically to the images you select, independently from Photoshop or any other program!!!

    One problem...
    VGSatomi denied it... So I am now facing a strange situation: either discard the loss of nearly 1 month of developing and algorithm designing or press on ith it and try again...

    What do you think? Should I take a crack at it? People not familiar with Photoshop or not having a system "strong" enough for Photoshop or simply not having it would benefit from this tool. It's below 1 MB in its current state and can do more than what I mentioned above.

    I would greatly appreciate if you'd also reply specifying why yoo think I should act in that manner.

    Thanks in advance!

    Im not even sure you can submit downloadable programs any more which might explain why VG denied it.
    Read the news and you might see why.

    And if the tools are stored on the actual site database...
    Then you cant upload them.

    Thing is...
    VG denied it like 2 weeks or so before the site went down. I tried to find out why he did so yet... Nothing.
    Then he got busy with the site, so I cannot accuse him of anything.

    These being said, the question remains!

    Sounds like a very nice program, keep on developing it. No new tools had been accepted at wc3search for ages btw. Not since the start of 2006 where Magos Model Editor were accepted I think.

    W3IR is now available!

    As the server is now available - thanks Ralle for all the effort he put in this undertaking - I guess it's ok with this.

    I hope it will prove to be useful.

    For usage details, please take a (good) look at the (impressive) documentation.
    E-mail as a last-resort option. Post here any questions... or anything else...

    I'd be thrilled to get some feedback from you all, to find out what you think about this.

    It may seem difficult to use, but I swear it's not!

    Cheers!

    There seem to be some complications with transfer to the new server. This tool seems mighty impressive, is an alternate download location available?

    I'll make available a secondary download link...
    Perhaps from FileXoom or Rapidshare. Or Gigahive - wish me luck...
    Thanks for the good thought... hope you'll think the same after you trial the program... :)

    Hopefully this will work.

    Thanks, ragingspeedhorn!

    The program is complete, as I see things...
    Read the documentation for further details.

    I now have 1 more week then my examination session will begin (2 weeks).
    No more developing...

    Hope you'll enjoy working with W3IR! And hopefully it will get approved! :p

    You should try to submit this tool at wc3campaigns.net aswell to see how good it it, since they are the experts when it comes to program developing.

    I'll do that as soon as I can.

    Who is in charge with moderating the Tools section?
    I am curious when moderators will take a look at W3IR... And more than curious to see it approved...

    Anyway, hope I'll have at least your support!



    Edit:

    Nasty... I cannot register nor login to wc3campaigns.net. If I did registered some other time - I did not use my current e-mail address... So - I cannot upload it... Who should I contact in order to check if that account belongs to someone else or I typed an incorrect address when I first registered?


    Edit2:

    No, that's not my account - and I cannot find BlackDoom on wc3campaigns.net... WTF?

    You honestly lost me! I don't know if what you said above is positive or negative feedback ("i dont see why it's great tool!")...

    It's a start, anyway... ;)

    As I said - I cannot register using BlackDoom as user name.
    It's not that I don't want to, but I try to keep my web presence consistent.

    Anything else to add... please do so!

    Thanks!

    This is a handy item to have in your Warcraft III toolbox. I found the "Add Borders" feature to be the most useful - it's a snap to convert an active icon image into a disabled, passive or autocast type. This process is far easier and faster than manually adding the borders with the PS icon layer tool.

    The renaming of files is a bit tricky. Even with the help of a VERY informed friend, I experienced some difficulty inputting the correct Suffix strings.

    The documentation included with this software is extensive and detailed.

    The only improvement that I might suggest would be adding a "Help" button or menu containing the tutorial portion of the readme.txt.
