it's a realy nice download client for machines
i thank you for it
but there is 1 tiny thing that bothers me
its when you type in your password you get to see your password and not in little dots or stars.
but for the rest everything is nice
thx again

Yes, I've noticed that too. I'll fix it in the next update.

Wonderfull, needs to be a bit more clunky for it to be really machines(more rust and wires xD) Can you also put in a small hidden button that you can click to continue without backing up? since I don't really like need it....(Since i'm no idiot when it comes to this ;))


ohoh! I want a upload button, that you can press, then you have to insert password, and then you can upload mods to the server :D
Would make my work so much easier ;)

Was this made in game maker!?  I think it was.  Nice job.  Very helpful and all, gets rid of all the bothersome work and makes it so easy even a grunt could do it...

There already is one... Look carefully. I think it's labeled "Back".

It can be done. Give me time...

Thanks, and yes, it was made in Game-Maker 5, and not six for several reasons.
1) Less CPU usage since it doesn't use DirectX
2) GM 5 can be worked with under Linux
3) GM 5 is more compatible with older PCs.
And you can still do just as much with it as you can with GM 6 :D

UPDATE - All of your clients should update automatically.

Changes:
-Passwords now show up as asterisks (*s)
-Bigger mod buttons allowing for actual names to be shown
-Larger mod description windows allowing for larger descriptions to be shown. They're also auto-wrapping.

Hehe, here goes :P

You might have read it on my blog, but maybe you can add links or something to programs/files like,
Metaex.exe
Metaex Manual
Mach1.met.txt
Modding Manuals -> Which i'm going to polish up)
Hamachi
mIRC -> Java Applet?
Jeballi's Walkthrough(steal it but give credit :P)
And Maybe you can add Minigames(it is GAME-maker after all, pong will be nice xD :P)

For the Program:
Add a "Sound on/off" button
Create a better "Description" window(this one is kinda messy)
Repair the "Launch Machines" button(crashes with me, at the N)
Change "Loading screen" with something Machines-like
Change Program Icon (not that default GM icon)
Different Backgrounds
Change "Jouse Mod" to "Joust Mod"

Highly Optional
Add a Skirmish Manual(which i'm going to create: A picure of minimap with small description, through which you can scroll :P)
Add a "Scaled maps" download center(Which I'm scaling and giving to you, but maybe this can take too much space...)




Enough to keep you busy I hope :) Now let's see what the next person wants to add :P
