nezff: Yes, you could just copy the 0.6 XBE over a 0.5 XBE and it would upgrade. But why would you want to do that, when 35 hrs 56 minutes before your post XSelect 0.9 was posted on X-Scene's main page (and is still on the front page there). If you're going to upgrade... why not grab the latest version? Is 0.9 inferior in some way that you know of?
(I notice Exusers UnleashX Installer CD v3.1 comes with XSelect 0.6
but Iriez posted the new version of the CD less than half an hour after he posted of XSelect 0.9 so I'm guessing the CD maintainers may have made the CD before knowing about the new version. But then again, they do call it "XSelect 0.6", which is more consistant with the name that 0.9 uses.)
And while I'm discussing this program:
The subtitle of this thread says "Bug reports here!" I've tested and found that, as 0.9's docs state, the simple presense of a *.XBE file with a very long name in E:\ would cause a major problem seeing the Config Dashes screen (even if that program wasn't listed in the dashes.txt file). Ends up being quite horrible, actually. It seems that the rest of the changes in 0.9's change logs aren't so much bug fixes, as new features or improvements, but not really bugs.
I don't know that the other "bugs" reported in this thread are X-Selector 0.6's fault. For one, the D: often refers to the current directory of a launched title, rather than the DVD Drive, hence the ID_No_D_Mount option that Evolution-X RemoteX can see in the evox.ini files. It probably depends on how X-Selector is launched.
And I dunno about that issue blittan has with the Cozmo RF controller. I suspect it is more likely an issue with IGR which has become infamous for incompatibilities. If your IGR involved you pressing some key combination, maybe by pressing those buttons you ended up telling X-Selector to run some other program by default (possibly itself, or something that caused an Error 21 which the IGR code could cause to re-run X-Selector again).
X-Selector seems to be pretty bug-free from what I can tell, other than the issue of a really long filename in the older versions. The program probably just doesn't have much opportunity to have a lot of bugs since it is a fairly simple program.
0.9's text file has a misspelling "formtted".
So, is this topic going to be renamed to XSelect 0.9 (or a new topic started)? Seems there wasn't much conversation (averaging less than one page of discussion in four months since July 10, 2003) about the old versions, even on a pinned topic.July 10th, 2003 post
says Gigabyte and another author will be new author. June 8th, 2004 post
says Muerte has the source (which was available at the usual place right by the old versions of XSelect). X-Scene News
says 0.9 was made by "a new author", but doesn't say which of these two, or if it was someone else entirely. At very least, it seems there may have been multiple authors looking at this.
Has there been any progress since 0.6 by some authors that isn't in 0.9, and if so, will their changes be based on the 0.9 source or would people need to pick and choose versions? (PBL seems to have become a mess lately, with Metoo, Frosting, PBL Lite... and even before that there was 1.4 which was made by a different group, 1.3.5i which was supposedly an internal build leaked). I'm wondering what BenJeremy knows/thinks about what the future holds for the software now. And BJ, will you admit to being an author of 0.6 or 0.5?, 'cause in this thread you kinda sound like this has been your project but none of the software versions seem to have any authors names in them.
