Release Trade Computer Extension Mk.II

Bug report: TCE doesn't correctly identify the right UI size when switching from multi-monitor back to single monitor

Steps to replicate:

1) Have multiple monitors
2) Switch to multi-monitor setup
3) Switch off multi-monitor setup
4) UI is now incorrectly sized

Notes: I am running an ultrawide monitor as my primary (2560x1080), and my secondary monitors are aligned vertically (1080x1920), so this may have caused some issues
 
Bug report: TCE doesn't assign the correct height to the UI. My monitor is 2560x1080. The Navigation tab, for example, displays in a box bigger than the height of my screen, so I can't close the box nor see all the data.

I've been wrestling with this program for several hours now. It's way too difficult to use without proper documentation. All the 'guides' are either non-existent or are based on older versions that bear little resemblance to the current one. And it seems to be lacking certain features that would make it better. For example, why is there no option to have the program wholly nestled on a secondary monitor? Why is there no option to have the mouse cursor always visible when attempting to click on the Interface?
 
Thanks for your report.
It would be helpful to send a report and the required TCE file to me by the Report A Bug button.

The guides are out of date man.
Checkout the wiki instead, which is generally up to date.

Will checkout the issue.

Trade route finder finds nothing even though I added a database from EDDB?
Because your Data Age filter is set to actual, I guess. Change it to 1-4 days and you will find plenty of routes.

1. Open the Options panel and select the Panel Configuration tab.
2. Activate the Allow Free Panel Placement option.
3. Select the panel name under Panel Positions and increase the Y-value to see the CONTROL button at the panel.
4. Click the CONTROL button and redurce the Panel Size value to a proper value and the Font Size to be suitable.
5. Save the setting aftwards.

This should work until I fix the issue by a patch.

why is there no option to have the program wholly nestled on a secondary monitor?
There is an option, if you didn't use any surround mode at the GFX-driver for you monitors. Select the monitor number, you want to use for TCE at the System tab of the Option panel.

Why is there no option to have the mouse cursor always visible when attempting to click on the Interface?
That can't work because TCE is an overlay, so you have to switch the focus between both applications.
There is a keybind to send the focus to TCE, so your mouse pointer become visible by pressing the selected key.

Hope that help's unitl a fix is out.

having probs with edmc, have completely uninstalled and reinstalled no difference was ok last night?
The message comes from EDMC.exe, which is used by TCE.
Seems to be a security issue, give EDMC.exe (at the EDMC folder) admin rights, if your sytem requires it.

Are you able to run EDMC alone? There is also an error log (%TMP%\EDMarketConnector.log).

Hi Eventure,

I have just installed the latest release but initially, it froze and reported an unhandled exception.
After closing the app, I closed the windows then it continued to install.

It appears to be running OK at the moment after it completed the update.:cool:)
Error report cannot be attached as it is not a recognized file extension.

If you can tell me how and where to send it I'll do that

Happy New Year!

Martin

An error while installing TCE can't be recreated here and is really unusual.
Please copy the error message text, if you encounter the error again, into the message created from the 'Report A Bug' button at the Launcher.
Attach thereafter the noted file and send it to me.

Thanks in advance.
 
Hi Eventure,

Will do.

As I said, I cannot post the error report as it is as ED does not list .7z as a supported file type extension can I send it to you another way perhaps?

If you have installed an e-mail client on your system, the 'Report A Bug' button at the launcher will create an e-mail, where you can attach the ErrorReportFile.7z and add a description of the problem. If you doesn't have an e-mail client, upload the file to a location (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.), where I can load it and send me the link via PM.
