Minor Updates

1 min read
Tango 2600 has been quietly refreshed with a quick build containing a new ieframe.dll bitmap 699, for IE7's toolbar in small-icon mode, for Tangerine. No changes other than that, not even documentation for that :p

Inexperience has been updated with comctl32.dll locations for XPSP3.

I've got 64-bit reshacking (using CFF explorer to wrap poor old reshacker) support working for the most part, and will distribute some test builds after I've got some file replacement quirks sorted.

8.06 is out. Changes:
* Split the applications portion out into a separate patcher, since it'll work just fine on Vista, and even X64 (providing you haven't gone and found special 64-bit versions of things).
* Replaced my crappy WiMP icon with the icon from Totem
* Replace my crappy Winamp icon with xTom's
* Add comctl32.dll locations for SP3
* Finally work around the multiple-notepad.exe business using the code I put in place for that very kind of problem (comctl32.dll).
* Optionally extract source code to the patcher directory; I'd like to be more transparent and open-source tbh, and if XPero has XIS publicly available, I say it's fair game ;). I'd also like to be able to accept patches for third-party app support, as I pretty much let that languish, and there are people around who would be willing to help with that.
* Added /bootsplash=(0|1) command-line parameter. 1 is on, 0 is off
* Check for Vista. Don't run on it.

Migration from previous releases integrated with the system patcher is handled automatically. You will need to upgrade the system patcher to 8.06, but you can do them one after the other without rebooting, and in either order.

Just to try and head off some of the requests for STTP to be updated, I'd just like to say that I am working on it. I've reached a major milestone in a personal non-Tango related project, so I can take some time again to Tangofy and play Team Fortress 2.

Tango Patcher 2600 8.06 is coming. It won't be mind-blowingly different, but here are some notable SVN commits I've done since 7.08.2 - keep in mind that all of them have happened in the last week or so:
* Split the applications portion out into a separate patcher, since it'll work just fine on Vista, and even X64 (providing you haven't gone and found special 64-bit versions of things).
* Replaced my crappy WiMP icon with the icon from Totem
* Replace my crappy Winamp icon with xTom's
* Add comctl32.dll locations for SP3
* Finally work around the multiple-notepad.exe business using the code I put in place for that very kind of problem (comctl32.dll).
* Optionally extract source code to the patcher directory; I'd like to be more transparent and open-source tbh, and if XPero has XIS publicly available, I say it's fair game ;). I'd also like to be able to accept patches for third-party app support, as I pretty much let that languish, and there are people around who would be willing to help with that.
* Added /bootsplash=(0|1) command-line parameter. 1 is on, 0 is off
* Check for Vista. Don't run on it.

Anyone have any relatively low-risk/low-effort things they might like to get in?

Also, I haven't forgotten the Vista people  (I'm a legit X64 Vista user myself, now) - I've restarted work on my Python-powered patcher package, as although Vize-based Tiize is great, it just doesn't mesh well enough with my coding style for me to do anything more than minor tweaks and maintenance, and I'm wanting to add major features that I'm just not skilled enough to do in C#. When it's done, it'll replace all three of my Tango patcher-thingies, and be an immediate springboard for X64 support when a command-line resource modifier becomes available. jardasmid.deviantart.com/art/R… is the hot space for that, presently.

Too tired to write a paragraph, have some bullet points instead:
* New release of the Tango Patcher for Vista
* I'm calling it Tiize, at least for the moment
* Exact same resources as 7.07, except with an installer, and a new patcher based on XPero's Vize source code
* New resources come _next_ month.
* Staying up until 3AM on a work night... bad idea.

* For XP (build 2600) types, I've released a new version of the stable GUI patcher with some non-minor (but not really major) artwork updates
* For Vista (build 6000) types, I've re-released last month's hacked-together preview command-line patcher as the host it was on went down.
