Default [REL] RadioStationManager V1.0

RadioStationManager
February 15, 2008 : Version 1.2 now available. This version is to squash a bug that caused data in added event entries to be corrupted.


Now available only in the smaller footprint version. Download at Subsim Downloads or at Downunder.net




Purpose : Complete management of the radio station functions of Silent Hunter IV.

It allows the editing/addition/removal of radio stations including scripted events.

Data verification in all fields. This application verifies that the media files specified in the scripted events do exist and therefore eliminates the crash to desktop caused by a missing (or misnamed media file). This app also verifies that all events are in the correct chronological order.

It has a function to work-around the save date/time bug in the scripted events (i.e. no more listening to events that go back to your patrol start date when you restart a game in the middle of a patrol).



Credits

Many thanks to Misfit138 for serving as “guinea pig” and doing testing, and starting the whole process with his idea.

Thanks, too, to JScones for the “real estate” advice and operational advice.

I'd also like to thank the Academy, and all my fans..... oh.. wait... wrong speech

Hi, Mom!


Requirements

Windows XP/Vista?/2000? (not certain about Vista or 2000 and have no way of testing at the moment)
Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0


Limitations

50 Radio Stations
1500 events per station
1 media file per event

Installation


With JSGME : Put the folder RadioStationManager into your MODS folder and enable it with JSGME.
Without JSGME : Place the executable (RadioStationManager.exe) in the same folder as sh4.exe.
Either way, create a shortcut on your desktop for the RadioStationManager.exe file.



If there are any problems, feel free to post here or to email me at the address in the documentation. I hope this app makes your radio experience with SH4 an enjoyable one!

Looks like a great mod, but I keep getting an error message "Event date/Time out of sequence; please correct"
Everything looks in sequence to me.
Ideas?

This could be pretty much anything. An event in a wrong place or two different events set to happen on excatly same date and time

On which station you get this error?

When that error is displayed, the line causing the error should appear at the top of the data grid area for the events. If you scroll up at least one line and look at the dates and times of the events, they should be out of chronological order. Don't forget that the dates are in day, month, year order. After looking at the line above the highlighted line, if they are still in order, please zip the events.ini file that is causing the problem up and email it to the address in the ReadMe pdf and give me the date on the line that is highlighted. I'll try to recreate the problem and correct it.

Edit : Hey, Misfit, you snuck in there while I was typing :rotfl:

I found that quite a few of my stations had events out of order, file names different from what was in the event list ( like using '-' instead of '_' ), etc. I was able to fix them all and (hopefully) avoid some radio-created crash.

Great mod/utility this

@chris455 Glad you got it sorted out and

@RDP and Bill Nichols Glad you like and that it's doing what it's supposed to do.

@Misft138 I can certainly relate to that "no life" comment:rotfl:

Great to hear!

These problems with radio mods are something what the authors need to take a look into with this tool. Like for example, radio Tokyo from MultiStation V2 seems to be completely bugged but I guess it's not supported anymore...Same thing with BBC from that same pack but it got only a few errors but none of the less. Only one is enough for that beautiful view of your desktop...

OK- I keep getting a "radio.ini" file not found message.
Now I think this may be because I didn't install the radio as a mod? (because I didn't want to have all that backup from JSMG). I took Capt Midnite CBS-and added a few stations-like the Tokyo one, etc-made my own config file-and just put it all in the games Sound/Radio file-so it just repaces the original-rather than playing like a mod.
So is it still possible to use the Radiomanager mod? (I hope!)
Should I install it somewhere else?
Why can't it find the radio.ini?
