Release Trade Computer Extension Mk.II

Under the Trade Overview" in the "Find Location" window. I do see the "last update" where it lists the station for a given item. But personally I find a data age [such as in navigation /market places easier and faster] Right now I have to keep selecting the next "trade market" in the overview to check the last update in the destination window and then do the math to figure out the data age. I'm assuming the data age times are also displayed on a 12 hour clock since that is how my clock is set. Does that make sense?

Of course, it makes. There is some room at add an 'Age' column. Will be added with the next release.
Thanks for the suggestion.

Question for everyone. I use a 44 inch LG TV as a monitor. My screen resolution is 1360 x 768.
A lot of the Panels in Trade Computer are way oversized and cannot be used. Is there a wayto set the panels so they will work on my screen?

Hi there,
your resolution is the minimum requirement, but it will work. When launching, there will be a notice, that TCE will adjust the size for all panel accordingly.
Click YES to let TCE the work, but you have to adjust the main UI yourself.

As soon as you see the main UI, click the CONTROL button at the top left and enter the PANEL menu.
There you can adjust the size of the panel and the font. Reduce the size of the panel to about 70%, maybe alittle more, so it fits your screen.
The second part is to change the font size to about the same as the panel. After that, exit TCE and relaunch.

So when you see the UI again, adjust the font size again to be readable at the center displays. Thats all.
Each panel has a CONTROL button at the top-left corner, where you can change the size (panel size should be good, but the font size could have an adjustment),
that it fit's for you onto your screen.

As I saw in my test, that the size of the icons didn't resize properly, there will be a fix for them with the next release.

Oh, I forgot to ask, if your PC is a multi-monitor system? If so, you have to switch the Multi-Monitor option at the Options panel and then select the monitor, you want to display TCE. If your low res screen is you main monitor, nothing has to be changed in that part.

Hi E,

I sent you an email with description and 7z on small issue with TCE. I think it's Fleet Carrier related. Let me know if you need more info.
 
E,

I'm not sure if you're still taking requests, but could you add a Credits/hr to session summary at the panel Personal/Credit Balance/Session? There's a 'credits/hr' for overall, but not one for the session summary. Thanks either way.
 
The screenshots link seems broken.
Thanks for the hint, have updated the link.(y)

E,

The Credits/hr is always based on the current session, not onto the overall income.

I am having trouble getting it to work beyond the choose commander/login screen. I verify is my commander, click login, it begins to work saying loading for 30 seconds then get "not responding". No error, no logs I can find, nothing in windows event viewer.
De-authorized and reauthorized edmc, uninstalled and reinstalled both, uninstalled vc++ package then reinstalled it, tried both before and after game is loaded and running. Added an exception in firewall and in Malwarebytes. I am stumped.
Finally left it running 10 hours on the off chance it was working in background. It used between 6-7% cpu, and somewhere between 100-300mb memory but never did anything.

Running windows 10 pro x64

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for your report, it has to do with expired missions you had.
There was some recent changes at the v1.8.4 Mission database, which has effects to some parts of the mission controller internally.
That's why the beta release is in place. You found an error and reported it. Great job and thank you for your help!
The release above will fix your issue.
