btw, "90 degrees bug" also happens on Wine.

It also happens in Windows.

I haven't tried slade 2.0 in linux in a while, so not sure what's up with that. Either way I'm not going to play around with it (but don't worry, I do want to get to the SLADE3 map editor soon...)

Anyway, I've released beta 3, check out what's new and download it here.

- Added ability for 'portable' install, where all configuration files etc are stored in the application directory (currently activated by creating a file called 'portable' in the SLADE application directory


Why is this not default?

IMO portable installs just mean more incentive to put them on flash drives. Kinda useful if you ask me!

yes. I really hate it when I can't take useful things on the go, especially if the computer I will be on has limited access.

My point was that programs like this should always be "portable". There's no reason to have anything but a "portable" version.

Also, the program freezes for me when I try to save wad files, and seems extremely slow when copying and pasting.

I have no issues with copy/pasting, it's instantaneous for me (or at least it takes less time than selecting the lumps to copy/paste takes...) but saving does take a disproportionate amount of time.

You're right, it's the selecting that's slow. Really slow. Painfully slow.

Hmm, saving does take a very long time now. I'll look into that...

Edit: fixed, was caused by a silly redundancy (changing an entry state to the same state was being announced/processed)

portable should be handy if im a Windows user. i used to prefer apps storing data in same directory to apps storing data in registry, Application Data, or something like that. however, i also prefer Linux FHS to Windows. I like the way storing apps data in .appsname directory under home directory.

im just worrying about the case using Slade in Linux if portable is default...

That's pretty much it. It's not good/standard to store all application data/settings in the same folder as the executable in linux. But it is easier to do it like that in windows. So possibly I'll change the default to portable in windows...

I don't know if it's relevant, but portable installs of foobar2000 can't do file associations in Explorer. Since Windows is also a multiuser environment, I wouldn't recommend making the portable install the default.

Uh, you can certainly do file associations manually. Click on a file, select the program you want to run it with, and voila, a file association. That's probably some weird design thing with foobar2000 since I've never seen any other program do that.

I think in the case of tools like Slade 3 portable makes more sense, because on most modding computers that I know of, the modding is really only done in one user account.
