Xmas brought tons of fixes, improvements and additions ie: Multis Working!

As of Dec 26/19 : Started work on both Gump Editor(Like Gump Studio by Bradley) and Multi Builder (Like UO Architect), two new additions to the UO Black Box! I'm moving along faster then I had planned!

"Download UO Black Box Art"
Where did it go? I can't find it and I apparently need it for the next step.

Use the button to download it, then unzip and point the tool to it!

I'm looking at including the art eventually, for now I have the art in a separate zip, just with thousands of images, it isn't possible without bogging down the tool to bake them into it!

Both Statics and Multis are in, Land is the only one left and for now it is there for reference until I look at reviving UOLive, which I want too, but will also need to contact Praxiiz first to get permission, otherwise that is way down the road when/if I decide to expand the tool into mul/uop editing!

Today I've been working on a feature for the map to expand it, plus the custom map feature planning.

Also did a little work on preping the layout for the gump editor, and UO builder.

All in all busy day, should have version 1.0.0.41 up tonight!

Re reading your message I think you are asking if the art is embedded into the tool?

If so, no, besides a few maps for the travel side of the map tool, right now I am running the zip externally as I haven't programmed handling it yet within the tool like I did the auto install scripts!

But this shouldn't be too much of a deal, it basically just all .bmp .png and .jpg art the tool uses for display, the only thing the tool uses the folder other then the art is communicating with the server through the /Read Folder, * in 1.0.0.41 it will be changed to /DATA for future readers of post!

Wondering since we now go to the download and it wants to install =where does this install as my PC is against this app :) but any ways would prefer the zip unless its way to large to install where I would prefer.

*This is a click once install program, so it depends on your security if you get warnings or not, I am a trusted registered developer with a valid signed cert attached to the program.

*The Program is only 25MB at this version! the Art Zip is just above 100MB, and unzips to 600+MBs

So with that said, the program will install like any other, with a location in the start menu, plus it is put into control panel for easy removal!

The separate zip that needs to be downloaded is just a zip with jpg/png and bmp UO Art, I designed the tool to use these instead of messing with the actual mul/uop files, easier to update and added control and flexibility down the road!

The Zip also has a folder set up to handle files that the tool writes and reads, plus will hold the save location for saved and exported gumps come next release!

This download can be put anywhere within the access of both server and tool, meaning on same drive!

*****Don't Use the Test Element Till Version 1.0.0.50*****

I found a bug and am in the process of fixing it! [bug report](If you use 'Test Element' with a non image element you will crash the tool)

**Bug-Fixed - Version 1.0.0.50 Released +HotFix

1.0.0.50 - fixes the crash but after further testing, some elements don't pass into game or show the wrong id, this will be worked on for next release, as with Load/Export!

Major Update Version 1.0.0.52

*Added Support for Save/Load and Export for the UO Gump Editor Tool
*Clean up the code, squished some bugs!

++For anyone that previously downloaded the tool, I've had to do some restructuring of the Folders and added a new feature to Reset Tool.

*If you have problems or the art is missing, First go into the tool and reset it, then close it for now, then go and delete the UOBlackBox art folder, and then go into your scripts and delete the UOBlackBox folder there too. Then open the tool and go through the set up again, re download the art folder and set up the scripts. This should be the last time doing this as I have the structure finalized now!

Do you have an available "to-do list" or road map or anything? just wondering if there was a way to see what features are being planned for or what to look forward to. Any kind of website or gethub with that info? Just curious. Thanks for your contribution!
