Release EDEngineer - an overlay to track your blueprint progress in realtime

yeah it's possible but pretty annoying, you have to find the configuration file of the app in your AppData folder and copy paste it on the other computer
however, it should be possible for me to write a quick feature to export/import configurations in a near future
Thanks, I'll give it a shot.
 
Updated EDEngineer today.

Now all my favorites and current shopping list are gone?

Is this going to happen everytime I update?

Is there a way to stop this as that list was big, and going take a while to sort through is all again [ugh]
 
Hi HG,

With the latest patch the app won't launch for me. I get the message saying 'verifying system requirements' but can't get further. On Win10. Tried restarting many times!

Cheers

Due to 1.1.2.5 refusing to run as above I have restored to 1.1.2.4 and EDEngineer is now working correctly for me again (and I hope it keeps working as it should prove invaluable when tomorrow's engineering bonanza starts...)
 
Hi HG

I love this tool, it makes knowing which materials are needed so much easier. I have a question though.

As a console player the import function obviously doesn't work so I have to manually update all my materials each time I go on a collection frenzy. While this is completely understandable (with us not having any way of reading any journal file even if one actually exists) it does get slightly annoying when switching between alts, four in my case. Is there any possibilty of having a feature added for console players to manually add numourous commanders and have the program remember the last known state of their inventory?
I tried having 4 separate instances of the same .exe file, one for each alt, but that didn't seem to work. If there is a way of doing it this way maybe someone could explain the procedure.

Thanks again for such a wonderful tool
 
@Galerak

it's a good idea I did not think about ; it's currently possible to "trick" EDEngineer into thinking there are multiple commanders... Proceed as follow:

Open the directory where EDEngineer points (you can change it wherever you want, doesn't really matter since you are not playing on PC). The path is written at the bottom right of the application in blue (click on it to change).

* In that folder, create fake log files (one for each alt you have) named as followed : Journal.***.log where **** is whatever you want. Make sure you have the File name extensions option activated to properly edit files extensions (the files need to have the .log extension).
* In each file, add this log entry :

{ "timestamp":"2018-03-20T01:22:23Z", "event":"LoadGame", "Commander":"YOUR_COMMANDER_NAME", "Horizons":true, "Ship":"n/a", "Ship_Localised":"n/a", "ShipID":11, "ShipName":"n/a", "ShipIdent":"n/a", "FuelLevel":15.885423, "FuelCapacity":32.000000, "GameMode":"Group", "Group":"n/a", "Credits":0, "Loan":0 }

* Now go to the manual changes directory : C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\EDEngineer
* Rename the manualChanges json file to "manualChanges.YOUR_COMMANDER_NAME.json" : this will make the manual changes you performed apply to the commander (same name as in the log file)
* Eventually delete the aggregation.json file if something's wrong (like you created multiple log files with different commander's name but you don't see the commander's name at the top of EDEngineer window)

As I said, this is a bit hacky but will work until I add a dedicated "Manually Add Commander" button.
 
Um, Cmdr HG ...

... now that we know that the Engineering Bonus Weekend won't substitute g4 blueprints for g5 blueprints (etc.) but instead requires us to substitute each individual mat within a blueprint for one mat down ...

... would there be any chance of a special Bonus Weekend edition???

the change between 1.1.2.4 and 1.1.2.5 is just a filter on the material trader suggestions that will exclude thargoids and guardians ingredients (i.e. it will only include materials that can be traded)

your issue is most likely related to the Windows update as many other users (but not everybody) experienced (see https://github.com/msarilar/EDEngineer/issues/404)
How is this remedied please, I cant see an installer for the previous version.

In the meantime, if you group materials, it’s easy to see which will trade for which. You can tell the grade by the icon.
 
Regarding the application launch problem, the issue has been acknowledged by Microsoft : https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/7cbd16f5-526e-4b0b-a186-3ebf41b7b349/smartscreen-prompt-does-not-show-for-clickonce-app-since-windows-10-update-1803

According to our product team collection information and test, we can now confirm this is an known issue. And We are working on fixing it.
A temporary solution that might work would be to add the deployment website to your trusted sites (in internet options). The binaries are deployed on rawgit : https://raw.githubusercontent.com/msarilar/EDEngineer/master/EDEngineer/releases/EDEngineer.application

In the meantime, I will not update EDEngineer unless there's a massive bug that breaks the app (because updating it would break people's shortcuts).

I couldn't get that to work. The only way I can get it working is to do what was suggested earlier and turn off the "Check apps and Files" under the App & browser Controlin Windows Defender. Launch EDEngineer and then turn that back on to Warn​...
 
How do I get edengineer to update the data or Elite to create a new file for edengineer to read? I've tried relogging and restarting Elite and restarting edengineer. The mat data in edengineer is so old that it has become totally useless to me.

Maybe related to this, I have never gotten a notification.
 
@bigity Coriolis can now update the shopping list, I've worked together with the guy who maintains the website to allow that
@J.R.Ehman You can change the folder where EDEngineer look for the journal by clicking the blue path at the bottom right of the window ; the app should warn you if it doesn't find any log in the folder you selected
 
I'm not able to start the local API — first time trying. It throws out this error:

I am running 1.1.2.8. Thank you for your good work.
