World Viewer 2.0 - View World information with Map + Mod Support
« on: December 13, 2010, 10:38:33 am »

Get World Viewer - 2.0.17 - 1/5/2010 (40d compatible version, based on 2.0.14, not tested very much)

World Viewer is a tool that allows you to easily view the information generated during world generation.

It can work on modded and unmodded versions of DF, tested up to .31.18

View the included readme.txt for details on how to use the tool.

Let me know what you think or any bugs that you come across.  This was a complete rewrite of my previous World Viewer tool which wasn't built initially to support maps, mods, or even the xml files.  I figured the best route was to just start from scratch, and this is the outcome so far :).

Special thanks to:
  • Parker147 - I was working on my rewrite when I discovered his Legends Viewer tool, and he was kind enough to help in testing my testing, and offered some algorithm advice.  He's also been sharing his discoveries about uncommon events.  Thanks!
  • Fellhuhn - I also discovered his thread about parsing the xml file while I was working on my rewrite, and the posts in that thread helped to give me some ideas for the initial release.  Thanks!

Glad to see this is back albeit in a new form. Unfortunately I'm getting an error when I try and open it:
Quote
Component 'FM20.DLL' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid
Any ideas?

Edit: Problem fixed.

I was worried that might happen.

As a temporary work around:
  The file FM20.DLL is in the zip, if you could drop it in the windows/system32 folder and try it, I'd appreciate it.

I just tried that and still no luck; It produces the same error.

Can you try installing this?

Now I'm a little worried as I tried to run it and got the following error:

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142).

Sorry for flooding the first posts with problems.

It might be using the one you have downloaded, instead of the one you deleted.  remove/rename FM20.dll from the world viewer folder.

Thanks for your help.

That last error I posted is the one I get when I try and install setuppad.exe not World Viewer. I've already moved FM20.dll somewhere else where it can't cause problems.

Edit: I'm running Windows 7 64bit in case that matters.

Okay, there was a control in my App that required that .dll, and I used it as a simple solution to a problem.  So I'll just patch that problem and that file won't be needed.  Could you try the new version I just uploaded?  Thanks.

Okay, we're up to 2.0.5:

Some notable changes since first post:

  • There is now a logging system, which should help greatly with finding any problems in your world.  Unchecking the box adds additional non-problem messages to your log files, about stats, and other uncommon but not problematic encounters in your files.
  • Removed FM20.dll requirement, which probably made it usable by many more people.
  • Sublists in most tabs now when double-clicked go to that item with greater detail.
  • Lots of bug fixes

You guys are just awesome  :D
