Unfortunately that was already set :(

Awesome. :) Mind typing up the steps you took? It might help others in the future.

In other, exciting news, here's a screenshot of the new interface that doesn't require EasyGUI!

v1.4 is due to release soon-ish. :)

It looks like the problem was with os.path.split(argv[0])[0]. I changed that to os.getcwd() + '/' and it's working now. Here's the application I made with py2app:

Well,it's completely safe. Anti-virus programs can be stupid. But, I guess nothing's perfect.


But this is a safe program,shouldn't cause any harm.

It does work with the Steam version. I cannot help you without any details. Did you read the included readme? :)

No offense intended, but I'm not entirely sure that Avast! is picking up a false positive, because it nailed the link to the download site as a virus as well, and flags the .exe file included as well. I'm no internet guru but it seems possible someone infected the download.
Again, not sure, just pointing out. I do sincerely hope this IS a false positive because this is single handedly the most useful piece of modding equipment for this game, and it really drags modding to a crawl without it.
Thank you for your hard work, as well. I cannot, personally, thank you enough for this massive contribution. I've wanted to mod FTL with the various ship editors and such that are out but never had an easy method until I started working with this.
Just wanted to mix the good and the bad :D

hiya, heard about the amazing mods people have created for ftl, and decided to try it out, i followed the steps and extracted the modmanager,mod, scr and readme files to my ftl.exe folder, and started it up, it did not work, with the line of text stating that 'unpack requires a string argument of length 8' '. i am running win 7, GMM v1.3, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hey,
Ok, so the problem was that I would launch the mod manager but the application wouldn't come up. Only the command window came up. What I did was just get rid of all files associated with it, re-downloaded it and installed it again. Had to wait a bit for it to load (about 15 seconds) but it finally come up and was able to get it started. I have a new problem now though. After installing some mods (disable fleet and new events and text stuff), my game gets this random lag every now and then. Managed to get an Engi Normal run complete though. :) I started playing Team Fortress 2 and started getting some lag in that as well. I think it could be steam or my computer, not sure. I'll update if I find the problem.
Thanks,
Howzet.
