ok Ill try that. Thx
*Halleluja* It worked. Again, thanks for the quick response.
When I build a Vmod using this program I find that opening the Packager takes FOREVER to open the actual packaging interface. I recall there was a folder I had to go into to delete old mods which would speed up the opening of the program again. Does anyone recall what needs to be deleted in order for the program to open swiftly?
FYI I've already deleted all the old .mas from the Appdata>Roaming>~Mastemp folder. That didnt work. I am sure i am missing something really easy.
Sorry I'm just coming across this Depco but for information sake delete this file. Users\name\appdata\roaming\pkginfo.dat
It seems MAS2 stores all of the Vmods and components you've ever built into this file and over time it slows the loading time of the MAS packager. Eventually the MAS2 will crash and not launch. Deleting the file fixes it, next time you launch MAS2 it creates a new one and it loads up quick again.
Maybe S397 could make some sort of app to delete these files , as I know we have to delete every month because it become unusable........
It appears that Noel's website is down again. GetMod Manager is not currently working. Hopefully this can be rectified or a suitable replacement can be found quickly.
Hi all GetMod has been down for a few days now is anything been done to get this back up and running?
Any news on GetMod not working.
Becoming very frustrating.
Judging by the lack of response believe the GetModMgr application is not going to be resurrected. If anyone knows how to get a link into a Vmod please let me know so I can make my Leagues Vmods work with GetMod. Unless the new UI and Competition Structure is going to take care of this. In that case, an ETA would be appreciated.
Maybe Noel is in holyday. GetModMgr is so useful. As you said Depco, new UI and Competition Structure should bring this part. Content download when joining should not be dependant of a third party component.
Actual bugs, after Internet site is offline (?)
you forgot the if-loop on the Username / Passsword box.
if u haven't write a password and username in the box and click than ok, you become a Microsoft .NET Framework error + Line Number error. And that's not all. Haha. If i open now the Program, there isn't a Program Icon on the "Windows Task bar" and the Popup Error from .NET Framework is visible

...someone call him at home!!!!!!
Really, it's a so useful site.....
I dont understand why ISI (now Studio-397) implement such a useful automatic download system, and didn't implement something like Noel has done. Really incredible...
I sent him a message on 6th September but he hasn't replied.
In the past when the site is going down Noel has gotten it back up within a week or so. This time it is going on significantly longer. I believe we can probably write off the getmod manager functionality. It really sucks because it was the most useful mod of any third-party mods that I used as a server admin.
Man guys I am so sorry for the outage. I was hosting the server at my office and we had a ransomware attack which seriously impacted the business. I haven't followed the forums or simraced in years. I've been swamped at work dealing with the ransomware attack and totally forgot I was hosting GetMod over here. Today I was moving our webserver to a new host and I'm going through the Apache config and saw the commented out VirtualHost and remembered I never dealt with GetMod. Long story short I will work on getting it back up over the weekend. No data is lost but it's a time capsule from 8/9/2018.
I did some work on this already and the bulk of the work is done. I will finish it up later tonight. Sorry again for the inconvenience. I had no clue after all these years that is was still being used so heavily. I'm amazed it has been running without me having to fix anything for all these years.
@Noel Hibbard Not good enough!
Extremely useful (and used) service, should already be part of the game, massive thanks for making and providing it and excellent to hear you're going to get it up and running again. I was under the impression some time ago you were more actively involved in rF2 development itself, it's actually a little disappointing now it sounds like you're not.
I'd much rather be writing code for S397 than doing boring business software all day. Hahaha
