Ok, so I have a basic form of the application running to a standard I am mostly happy with, but what I do need is some volunteers to run said application and return back to me a saved XML log file so I can do a bit of verification that things are running as expected.
If anyone is interested in doing so, could you please send me an email -> email@example.com and I will get back to you ASAP with download details!
Meanwhile here is a run down on what would be required…
Once you have that downloaded and installed and have my app downloaded and extracted to a folder. Run the exe provided. You should be presented with the following screen.
It is fairly self explanatory, basically input your Steam installation path and your UserID (which is found in your Steam installation path, then the UserData folder) and then click Save. Provided all the settings are valid of course.
Once you have done that, all that is required is to press the Reload Appinfo Data button on the main window that appears.
This should load the various lists with data, including the right hand most, which is the log I am interested in at the moment. To save this, press the Save Log to XML button and it will save a data stamped file to the location you rant he exe from.
Simple matter of then emailing me this file and hopefully I will have more next time!
Edit: I have made a couple minor tweeks to make the setup step a hell of a lot easier. Code now detects Steam installation path from registry as well as preloads a list of UserID’s detected in the Steam installation folder. All you have to do is pick the correct one from the list. It is likely that there is only one, so easy enough. If the application can’t find the icon path, just remove that entry, the code isn’t using the icons yet anyway, so you won’t create any problems.
