DpUpdateCheck 2.0

I couldn't resist taking on mediadogg's "challenge", getting local data from HTTPJolie instead of from an export file. Not surprisingly it's a bit slower. Reading from a file is faster that getting the same data via HTTPJolie. But you don't really have to wait for it, just let it run while you do something else.

It is a bit slower, but not much - it's still running at >1 profile/sec. 
And even using .xml-files, I doubt anyone would just sit and stare at it, waiting for it to finish...

Glad that the site is back up again. I was afraid that I had lost my "audience" altogether, small as it may have been. So now I can make two announcements;

1) I fixed a couple of more bugs, so it's now DpUpdateCheck 2.2. One was a bit awkward. If the default settings for HTTPJolie wasn't working, the program just quite. Having configurable settings isn't very helpful if you cannot reach them if they need to be changed!    As a bonus, though, I have added a display of the expected remaining time.

2) I'm working on a major update. It's a basic comparison program that can run directly after DpUpdateCheck. It's a long way from being finished, but here's a preview of an early development test:


The final look should be more compact, and I'm not sure if I'll even address cast and crew, because those are really complicated. I may add a link to "Preview Changes" in Profiler. We'll see.

DpUpdateCheck 3.0

So, the promised update is here. DpUpdateCheck now comes with its companion DpUpdateCompare (in the same zip file).

When you have saved a result in DpUpdateCheck, you can select View result from the File menu:


It doesn't look exactly as the preview, but you get the idea. DpUpdateCompare has its own help file, which you can access from either program's Help menu. You can also run DpUpdateCompare by itself. Read all about it in the help file! Enjoy!

I wonder, is it time to start posting plugins and tools on the "other" web site? Would it be too troublesome to support in both places? I'm conflicted. What about you?

I don't think it's worth the effort as long as Invelos is up. If we lose the servers I'd do it.

DpUpdateCheck 3.1



Comparisons changed to line-by-line comparison. Yellow means equal but not in the same position. Currently this is done for every section, regardless of if position is relevant or not.

Anyone want further improvements, for example cast and crew? If so, give me some feedback!

DpUpdateCheck 3.2

Although I know it was going to be tricky I couldn't resist taking on cast and crew in the comparison. So here we are:


For all sections except cast and crew, checking "Differences only" will show the entire sections where there are differences. However, for cast and crew it will whittle down to the individual credits:


In addition to the above, this release contains a number of minor fixes and improvements, for example much smoother resizes of the display when you change the size of the window.
