More User Friendly Exporter/Converter Tools Please......
« on: April 18, 2017, 12:18:38 PM »
Hi Piboso.
Just a thought, but I think it would be great for modders to be able to actually see what is happening during the processing of the export/converter process?

I was thinking something in the same vain as the zip compression apps when they are compressing files? A window that shows you what file is being processed and it's progress, also a second  overall progress bar to give you an idea of how far along the whole export/conversion process is at any time.
This would save the current frustration of long processing times with no feedback to the user whatsoever, not even knowing if the exporter/converter app has stopped, crashed or what.

Please do this for the next exporter/converter as part of the modding tool updates Piboso. Thank you.  :)

Hawk.

+1

Adding the start time and continuous time elapsed (maybe in the title bar) would be useful and an indication the process is active.

Could a detailed log of the compile  be added as a text file output
