[Development]Orb Installer

Post by Flake » Tue May 29, 2012 1:01 pm

I'm writing an Orb Proxy Server installer in game maker atm. It doesn't do anything at the moment apart from look pretty and take your username...

Latest Update: Have built a workable text box, that can be aligned left, right, or center, has a cursor, works when you select it, doesn't when you don't, is faded, and also fades in and out, has default text, and can remember what you typed for later.

Let me know if you find any issues.

Game Maker 8.1 or Game Maker 8.1 Lite?
And what exactly does this "Orb Proxy Server" of yours do?

Very nice, my recommendation is not to have the white in the background of the installation while having white text, it can be slightly difficult to read the options.
edit: maybe it is possible to move the whiteness in the background more to the left side of the screen?

You do not need to install Game Maker and do a little bit of searching of what Orb Proxy Server is before asking that question. Literally 2 minutes of searching can answer any questions you may have.

Was thinking the same thing. I will probably just fade the background out to half bright.

You damn evil genius. Can't wait to run this. It'll be perfect for a VA server.

INSTALL DOESN'T WORK!!! There is no place to enter text when I have to put my admin username.

Coz I need to modify code and shit too... in other words, I need to change things and write different things as I go. I need complete control.

Plus I want to do it my way! :D

Legally Purchased, of course.

Dude That's as far as the code goes so far.

If theres no button, that's deliberate.

There is a reason why the title of this thread is "Developer"... He wants to make sure that the installation program works properly and prompts us questions on whether to do quick or custom install and suggestions on ways to improve this method of installment. He never said this was the actual installer for the Orb Program. If you actually attempted to install the actual Orb Program, you will find its quite difficult for your average Joe to figure out what to do. Flake is simply trying to make it easier for you.
