Thanks for all of your hard work GoldDraco13. I know for me BlackBox has allowed me to enjoy the process of building a shard all over again.

Major Update : After working on this all day, I am proud to announce that I've seen the light, I have the box talking directly with the server, no more middle man! This improves the responsiveness ten folds and opens up more doors for the tool features! I'm so excited I had to share!!!

It has come to my attention that the beta box server doesn't provide enough details for those that want to connect remotely, due to ripping this tool apart while I refactor it, I can't push an update yet, which will be the official release version when ready! So I am going to post a file to this post to replace the Server you get from the tool, all that is different is that this server provides the tcp info needed to connect to it, so you would enter in the full tcp into the tool ie: tcp://123.123.2.34 and the port, default 8090. This should clear up how to connect to the box server - issues!

I'm done the back end work and now working on refracting the tool and adding requests before I release the update, I wanted to give a chance here for people to make suggestions and requests for additional features to the existing tools!

For example, I received an awesome request the other day to add hotkeys, which will be in the next update btw!

So, Please take a moment to respond and give some criticism, I really want to make sure this next update is complete, it has been months in the making so I'm sure you'll all be pleasantly surprised as it is but more input means better output!

Update News : <Progress 80% Done>

I've been reworking the base functionality of the Gump Editor the last few days and wanted to share some news that'll effect anyone using this tool once these changes go live.

The Gump Editor now processes all the gump viewing/editing live in game. This will allow you a better final product in comparison to designing within the external application which doesn't always reflect the gump as it would be seen in game!

More to come ...

Hey, Draco super excited about the upgrades to server connectivity and functionality!

Question on the item interface when Stairs is entered I can only find a sandstone stair square in the list. I end up having to place that and then hue it to match grey stone squares that would be used under grey stone stairs. Is there any way to include more of those squares in the interface when you use the term "Stairs"? Or is there a better way for me to find them already?

I went and tested this and found a issue I'll fix for the update, it doesn't match your issue directly but it should help and with some information on why it is the way it is!

First what I found, when using the search, I couldn't enter a space in between stone stairs which would help isolate the results, this will be corrected to allow more then one word for searches!

As for your issue on the name of the ID, I did find all the other stone stairs lower in the list with the search term stairs, so they are there but they are all called stone stairs, there is no defining name for each type of stone stair! The reason is that the information is drawn from TileData, which is not descriptive by default! I do have the option so you can export and edit the CSV file for the art look up, you can add better names for the art there. In the future when the tool is finished, I might go in and do it myself but this would be last on my list as 60k+ items is a lot of work to go through and name properly!

I just want to add that I do have a Certificate from Sectigo RSA Code Signing CA added to this project, I did not purchase a smart screen certificate, I couldn't afford to do both and I believe this has cause some headaches with windows security as they want money in the guise of protecting you from malicious software, but in fact it is nothing more then another cash grab for a certificate for nothing really IMO.

I don't feel me spending money, protects you! I will say that they do look at your app if you want to post it to there store but the certificates are a joke, more about proving who I am and making money, not just on the certificate fee, but the lawyer that has to draft up the documents needed! Anyways, that was my rant on this!

My Personal Promise to you all!
I personally have done everything in my power to keep this code safe and free of anything that could be deemed malicious, majority of the functioning code is in the server scripts and open to inspection and once I feel the UI code is presentable, cleaned up and ready for forking, I'll post the project to GitHub.

This is probably an issue with my Norton Anti Virus not any problem with GoldDraco's code or certificates.

The export directory is now where all the files go that blackbox makes tool side, it must be set before using the tool, I would have picked one but over the last few months, one complaint that kept popping up was people wanted to pick the location, so I updated the tool to handle this request!
