[Release] DAMN NFO Viewer Addon v2.10.0032-080123

Post by Mrs Peel » Fri Feb 10, 2006 5:44 am

View NFO and DIZ files in the way they were meant to be viewed. I have updated this addon with reg entries to make this the default viewer for both these file types and pre-configged a few of the program settings the way I like them. ;)

Please note that now I have added an uninstaller for this you will have to re-associate your NFO and DIZ files after uninstallation.

DAMN NFO Viewer v2.10.0032.RC3
LINK: MrsP_DAMN_NFO_Addon_v2.10.0032-080123
MD5: 33DC0B2BE2F1A05058AE80BD9B0E4DCE
SIZE: 124 KB
Description: View NFO and DIZ files containing ASCII Art
Op System: Windows 2000, XP Home, XP Pro & 2003 (x86 only)
Builddate: 2002/09/15
Language: Multi-language
Title: NFO Viewer
Version: 2.10.0032.RC3
License: Freeware
Website: http://www.damn.to
Installs to: "%programfiles%\Desktop\DamnNFO"
Uninstaller: Removes program files, shortcuts, reg entries and personal settings
DAMN NFO Viewer
DAMN NFO Viewer is a utility for viewing text files containing ASCII Art (e.g. nfo files), and it proved itself to be handy So... if you're fed up with starting some DOS-like file manager each time you need to view nfo file, or ain't too happy with the viewer you use, or (worst case) use Notepad - give this little tool a try.
Features:
* Available in multiple languages: Chinese Simplified, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish. You can choose the languages during installation and switch between them later via Settings dialog.
* Hyperlinks / Email addresses autodetection
* The viewer automatically detects hyperlinks / email addresses and shows them as clickable shortcuts.
* Customizable appearance
* You can set text/background colors, colors for hyperlinks and hovered hyperlinks, whether or not you want hyperlinks to be underlined, and choose between 3 built-in fonts, available in different sizes.
* Word Wrap: You can switch between word wrap, character wrap and no wrap.
* Shell integration: The Viewer can be set as the default application to open files with .nfo and .diz extensions. You get fancy file icons as a bonus.
* Smart line breaks handling: Unix style line breaks are supported (that is, you won't notice any difference). Moreover, the Viewer correctly displays files with doubled/tripled/etc. (e.g. because of improper multiple Unix<->Windows conversions) line breaks.
* Unicode support: Unicode version of the program is installed automatically if the operation system supports it. Unicode version provides better support for multilingual user interface.
* Copy-on-Select: When this feature is on, text gets copied to clipboard automatically after you have finished selecting it (released shift key or left mouse button). After the selected text has been copied, the selected area will flash shortly and the text will get deselected (so for those who thought it's a bug: it is not).
* Direct Scroll mode: In this mode there's no caret so you can't select text with keyboard, but you can navigate through file contents more easily (like in your browser). Turning it off makes it more like viewing a file in a text editor. and more...

Enjoy (or not)

:D

Nice release, but have you ever tried out jane [link] which is the only nfo viewer that got me to switch away from DAMN which is execllent in and of its self.

Any ways just a heads up since you've shared so many great app's here some of which I'd never even heard of.

Sorry I won't be doing that because the program needs to be run once for you to configure it and select whether you want to use it as your default NFO viewer or not. It only takes 2 seconds to delete the shortcut if you don't want it ;)

I personally don't understand the aversion people have to having shortcuts. I can understand not wanting a cluttered desktop, but nestled somewhere in the Start menu should be no issue and even if it is, one can simply delete it.

OK I had second thoughts about the file associations for this and decided to add some reg entries for it.

Awwwwwwwwwwww crap and you got me all excited for nothing thinking Ivanopoulo was back in business again (((sob))) Oh well your edit gave me a good giggle which made up for it :P

In this updated version I added some reg settings which associate the diz and nfo files to NFO Viewer during setup and I also preconfigured the program options to my own personal taste, ie: made font colour blue, made links live to click, set text to autocopy on mouseover, set word wrap and made default window size the best width to view release groups ASCII art nfo files.

Nothing gurly or anything like that, so I'm sure you'll like it cherub ;)

This addon used to work fine and has been a regular part of my unattended DVD. But ever since the last update, the addon does not work, more accurately it does not even get installed although the 'RVM_Integrator_1.2.2.log' indicates that it was slipstreamed.

I was kind of expecting this response to my feedback and although I had been having problems with the two 'Karen's addons' since the very begining I had not posted any feedback because I wanted to make sure it was not a mistake on my part and it is only now that I posted about them. The problem with the Damn Nfo viewer on the other hand only started after it was last updated with the registry entries, before that it had always worked flawlessly. Everything else on my unattended DVD including a long list of addons made by you is working flawlessly.

1. It works just fine for me with these reg entries and I've tested it in two builds.

2. Did you bother to even test it in a build on it's own to eliminate the possibility there is a conflict with another addon you are slipstreaming? I bet you didn't.

3. Your history of complaining about things that are not broken is legendary, so I'm not going to bother investigating this any further unless I get other complaints from members who have a clue.

4. If you are so absolutely certain that it is the reg entries I added then all you have to do is test that theory is to remove the AddReg section from my inf file cos that's the ONLY thing I changed with it.

5. In India do they teach young children the fable of the Boy Who Cried Wolf?

Your probably right, I just spent 20 min checking this "problem" out. Exporting every reg settings from original installer and comparing to your inf, installing your addon, opening nfo files with it, looking through ini/inf for 8.3 and/or misspelled things, running fgcba (<--advertising) to unpack and repack. And guess what?

I didn't find a single problem, either it doesn't exist or I must be blind. Because the DAMNED(:P) prog works just as it should for me.

Anyway thanks Mrs Peel for yet another excellent addon pack!

I am glad it works for you and it's quite possible that there may be nothing wrong with the addon. I must also be honest to admit that I actually have not installed using the Unattended DVD but rather I had made it for a friend and it is he who has repored that 'Damn NFO Viewer' is not installed, whereas everything else from the installation is working fine. Thus it is quite possible and it probably is an issue related to something else, considering you say that it works fine for you.
Mrs Peel wrote:2. Did you bother to even test it in a build on it's own to eliminate the possibility there is a conflict with another addon you are slipstreaming? I bet you didn't.
No, I did not. Primarily because it did not occur to me to do so and secondly because I did not have the time right now to do any extensive testing. By the way, if this addon is in conflict with another addon, would that not qualify as being a problem, considering that all the other addons are working fine in my installation.
Mrs Peel wrote:3. Your history of complaining about things that are not broken is legendary, so I'm not going to bother investigating this any further unless I get other complaints from members who have a clue.
First of all, my feedback was never meant to be a "complaint", it was simply meant as "feedback" in the pursuit of finding help for myself and to appraise you and others of potential problems with this addon. As for my "legendry habit of complaining", I have in almost one a half years of being a member on this forum made approx 130 posts of which maybe I think 9 posts have been to report a potential problem with an addon. Of these 8 posts, 4 posts including the post in this thread, have been regarding addons made by you. The reason for the high percentage of the "complaint" posts being related to your addons, is simply because a very major chunk of the addons I use are by you. Now you could take that as a compliment or however way you wish. Anyhow, including the post in this thread there have been 4 occasions where it has turned out that the problem was not with the addon itself. Which means that atleast in the case of half of my so called "complaints", I was right and therefore was instrumental in helping others avoid the problem faced by me. Also I would like to think that I also helped the addon makers better their work. By the way you yourself are on that list of addon makers, who I have helped in identifying errors with their addons and thus helped in fixing them. In case you have forgotten, let me refresh your memory about the 'Registry Tweaker Addon', where at the very outset you had blamed the program, rather than consider that anything might be wrong with your addon.[/quote]

First of all I never stated that I am even sure that the problem is definately with this addon only. But this is a constructive suggestion, one that I might try out in case I am not able to identify the problem elsewhere.

In New Zealand, do they teach young children about Humility and Manners?

@ Mrs Peel
1. You are rather arrogant and rude, and have always been very condescending in your posts towards almost everyone, except a select few on this forum.

2. You take feedback to your work way too personally. Specially considering that most people's feedback and definately so in my case, is never meant to be a criticism of your work but rather an attempt to either seek help in figuring out what may be the problem or simply to appraise you of any problems that might really exist.

3. I like many others have benifitted from your work and I atleast have always been very grateful and thankful for the same.

4. As stated earlier in this post, I use quite an extensive number of addons made by you, but if you so wish, I shall desist from doing so in the future.

In closing I'd like to thank you for the work you put in on this forum but just so you know, your work here does not give you the right to insult anyone or any country/race/culture.

My comment about the fable of the "Boy Who Cried Wolf" was in no way meant as racially offensive, quite the contrary in fact as I do not harbour any hegemonic assumptions that people raised in a different country to my own are delivered the same content as the school system which I was raised in here.

The "Boy Who Cried Wolf" story was definitely one which was drummed into me by my education and I refer to it here as a lazy way illustrating how a person can erode their trustworthiness to others by false cries of danger (errors) such that when a day comes that their claims are grounded-in-fact then there is a grave chance their listeners may not pay them much credence due to the reputation they have earned for themself by their past actions. In your case you have earned a particular kind of reputation with me which has this effect - which is not to say that I take your error reports any less seriously, but it certainly has the effect of frustrating me immensely when I am unable to reproduce the error myself and leaving me feeling downright bitchy when it is later revealed that it was a false report.

Let me try and help you understand something about the source of many of my frustrations on this board. For over eight years I worked as a Telecom Faults technician fielding customer complaints about their telephone service. The statistics at the station where I worked were that anywhere from 35 - 40% of complaints which were logged and actioned inevitably turned out to be customer errors - silly things they had overlooked, such as their phone cord was not plugged in, or an extension phone was off the hook, or they had connected some incompatable 3rd party equipment into the line, or they had programmed their own phone to do something silly cos of failure to read the manual properly. It was frustrating and it was time consuming, but I was getting a paid income for what I was doing so it was no loss to me personally and I had the comfort of knowing that the idiot customer would be charged a $65 penalty fee by the company for a wasted callout.

But I no longer work for a company and I do many many hours of voluntary work every week for different community organisations and various online communities and the thing that I have discovered over time is that when you give your time for "free" that the beneficiaries of your generosity seldom seem to value your time at all. The majority of people I speak to who donate their time for free to different projects and causes say the same thing and share the same frustrations about this phenomonem as I do. It's like you have to attach a dollar value to what you do in order to get any kind of professional respect and that is just fucking crazy to me.

And here's the important thing you see.... when I donate my time and skills for free my time actually has MORE value to me than if I was charging it out at an hourly cash rate, because I am not only investing my personal skills and resources but I am ALSO gifting my generosity and committment and personal goodwill towards the thing that was important enough for me to contribute to for no financial reward. I quite literally give more of myself to voluntary projects than I do to paying ones, so when beneficiaries of that behave like they do not value my time then I quite rightly regard that as a personal insult to me.

I wouldn't bother to feel personally offended if one of my paying web clients wasted an hour of my time trying to solve an erroneous issue with their website such as their personal firewall being incorrectly configured, I would simply charge them for my extra time and add it to their bill. But you guys get my time for free, so the only penalty I have the luxury of issuing upon time-wasters here is a royal bitch-slapping. It's a small consolation, but hey.... at least it eases the headache you just gave me by sending me on a wild goose chase.

Now here's another thing that really pisses me about this endless whine of yours.... most of the ISO builds I make are for other people and before passing them along I always make sure to thoroughly test them in VMware first. Occasionally one of my peeps comes back to me to say such-and-such is not working but yanno I would NEVER as result of that 2nd hand report come back here to this board and tell the maker of that software addon that their addon is not working!!!

I would at the VERY least visit their home and take a look at what is happening on their live install - first making sure that it is not user error, next making sure it was configured correctly, then making sure they had not installed something themselves that was in conflict with the addons software. If it looked like a bad install I would return home and double check the build I made for them in VMware again and see if I could replicate the fault myself.... and if I did replicate a problem I would try slipstreaming it in a fresh build with no other addons and gather as much information as I could to help the addon maker before I approached them about it privately.

But one thing I would NEVER EVER do is to waste YOUR fucking time in the offchance that MAYBE it was a problem with your addon until I had thoroughly checked EVERYTHING I could at my end first - and several times over to be sure. And YOU dare to try and lecture ME about bad manners when you wasted several hours of my time and also the time of several other members here who also went over this addon with a fine tooth comb to humour your 2nd-hand error report? Well that is just too fucking insulting for words.

If you want to continue this as a personal conversation with me then I STRONGLY suggest you take it to private message because I am quite certain that what I will have to say to your next reply will not fit for public viewing.

A note to the_doc735:

The addon pack you are having your problem with is NOT MY RELEASE, as you can tell by reading the entries file. The thing you are messing with is Avneet's switchless installer which was released in this thread here:

http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=882

I have moved all the posts relating to Avneet's installer to that thread so you can continue your discussion in the appropriate place.

Used this for a long time and it seems to default to being the default nfo viewer for me without me doing anything to it.
Will use the new updated release now that Mrs. Peel has updated this - thanks.

Edited - currently showing as a 404.

I've used this addon since you first released it, Mrs Peel. Although I haven't kept up with all of the updates you've made to this addon and haven't had the common courtesy to say so in this thread, I'd like to say thank you now for the diligence you've shown in keeping all of your addons up to date and working properly. Your coding stamina is legendary. :)

I just figured out a clever way to add a new reg section which restores the file associations back to windoze default on uninstall, so I updated this to do that.....

How many times do I have to explain this to people who are never satisified?

If you don't like they way I code my installers then learn to make your own.

I think the link is gone. :cry:

In fact it seems some other Mrs Peel links are down. I wanted this one and the ESB Calculator v6.2.1

The most probable cause is Mrs. Peel's "Nuke Policy".

In case anyone doesn't like to read, I quote: "So be warned that any releases that have not received a user response for more than 90 days will be nuked from this collection".

As you can see, the last post to this page was on October 8th, A.D. 2007.

In any case, here's a RapidShare link for the last release of Mrs. Peel's DAMN NFO Viewer Addon:

Same MD5 listed in 1st post, naturally.

Dude thats simply bullshit. Don't go posting other peoples work, it is very lame and also really fucking rude.

I am sure Mrs. Peel knows who can and cannot acces her work and the addon is unavailable right now for a damn reason. It's her work to share or not when she is ready and not yours

Man I am tired of this crap I get over 500 dl's of some of my addons a month and barely a thank you.
Some people only sign up to bitch or whine. They expect everything for free and walk all over us and then you just go and stomp on her with this shit.

peace! kel, dont jump so hard on him.. he did bring the nuke policy, linked and all and then gave a valid link to the needed software.. on something other than her server that does NOT use her bandwidth..

if you are worried about being able to download her stuff.. a generic search on google for "mrs peel addons" give just over 2400 results! including sites that archive and yes, even let you download..
its a little late to worry about only grabbing from her server..

that being said.. i agree that it could been handled better than just slapping it on rapidshare.

on another note.. thanks for your work kel!! (and Mrs.P) you and the others here are a vastly under appreciated resource.. just think of all the whining that would happen if all the addons went away cause people were too lazy to thank the addon maker for their time and effort!

Google search: "mrs peel addons" = ONE result which refers back to THIS board

Google search: "mrs peel addon" = TWO results which refer back to THIS board

This is my FUCKING INSTALLER CODING WORK and it is for ME and ME ONLY to decide where and how and with whom I share MY OWN WORK.

When disrespectful arseholes take it upon themselves to release mirror copies of MY FUCKING WORK on other websites without MY FUCKING PERMISSION then it STRIPS me of control over the ability to maintain my INF code in the best possible condition I know how to write at THAT time.

As you will notice I am constantly rewriting my entire collection when a better method of INF installer scripting becomes known to me and this very RUDE behaviour above not only insults ME as the installer author but it potentially harms YOU all as my users to be given access to OLD files that might not be up to scratch.

I am swamped with work right now rebuilding all my installers (AGAIN) to a better standard of INF coding that was recently taught to me by a senior member here and getting them re-catalogued on my new server and I do NOT have time to deal with this kind of SHIT right now!!!!

TripleA, I have reported your activity to RapidShare so you better REMOVE immediately from your post above this UNAUTHORISED download link TO MY WORK - which is now OBSOLETE due to my current recoding/upgrading of the Mrs Peel Collection!!!!

If anybody here has knowledge of any site who is directly hosting my files then they should notify me immediately, because quite frankly I am fed up with being treated like a FUCKING SERVICE PROVIDER by arseholes who's mothers taught them NO FUCKING RESPECT.

If an addon has been nuked I give a weeks warning beforehand and then afterwards you will be redirected to a specific message that specifically SAYS IT IS NUKED.

If anybody ever bothered to read the fucking notice on my home page, my files are only offline because I am recoding/upgrading my entire collection and relocating the files on a new server with a proper cataloguing system where I can more easily maintain version updates and changelogs.

This particular file was NOT nuked, but now that your rudeness has drawn my attention to the fact that it was over 90 days without a reply then I'll be adding it to my nuke list tonight.

But if it actually WAS nuked, then HOW FUCKIN DARE YOU think you have the right to override my wishes and sharing policies like this?!?!?!?!?!

:evil:

Thanks, though I've switched most of the addons to runonceex. May I ask tho.. Why do you get so worked up? While that policy is in place, but, what harm is there posting the link?

Oh deary me, have I stepped in it...

That was not the intention, of course. And I apologize.

I only wanted to help. But the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, as they say, so I'm not sure if that excuse really helps at all.

In any case, I'd really hate to see others suffer the consequences of my blunder, no matter how well-intentioned it might have been. So I have created an alternate DAMN NFO Viewer v2.10.0032.RC3 AddOn. It took about half an hour because I never used AutoIt before, but it's the least I could do, really.

But just in the interest of not ticking-off any disproportionately over-sensitive (IMHO) people:

Should I post the links here or in a separate thread?

My apologies, again.
