Is this the first time that you have tried to use it? The error indicates that the icon file for one of the plugins that it loads is missing. If you have an old copy of one of my other plugins installed, then it might be missing the .tga file for the icon. Do all the plugins have an icon that shows up in the About tab of the Plugin Manager?

Hmm, I have no idea since it won't open therefore I haven't configured it at all. Just trying to open whatever is the default. From your instructions you have to check for small icons which I have not done.

Exclamation Version 1.0.1

I just realized that I left one of the debug prints in the released version (that's what I get for working on it late at night when I'm half asleep)

Exclamation Version 1.0

This is a significant update that adds several enhancements. The event that made me revisit this plugin was the creation of a new Warband Reference plugin. So while I was adding support for it, I also added some new features as well (and fixed a bug in the auto-open option).

The first new feature is the requested movable window. As there is no title bar to drag it by, you have to drag it by one of the thin white strips between the icons. If you want to make new position permanent, you will need to set the auto-open option (clear it first if already set).

The second new feature is an option to use half-sized icons so that the window takes up 1/4 of the screen space. This is primarily for users with lower resolution screens that are too crowded. This option is only checked when the plugin is first loaded, so after changing it, you will need to reload the plugin for it to take effect. To reset the window position to the default when changing the icon size, also disable the auto-load option (and enable after reloading).

Just to add a +1 to the "make movable" your loader hides another plug-in I use that also is not movable and is put in the bottom left of screen

Making it moveable is on my to-do list, however, adding code for dragging and saving/setting position will add significantly to its size and I'm trying to keep it as small as possible.

Is it possible to move?

Nice little loader for your excellent collection of plugins.

One question, is it possible to change where it is located? Ideally, I would like to be able to freely move it about. Perhaps that is already possible and I am just too daft to sort it out.

Thanks!

Exclamation Version 0.9

Please be sure to install the latest version of my plugins that you are going to be using this utility with. I've updated all of my other plugins to be compatible with this loader. The older versions won't support the open function.

The normal use of this loader is to set it to automatically load for all characters so that loading the desired plugin only takes a single click. This plugin is very small so that won't slow down the sign-in process and uses up very little memory.
