A new feature allows the inventory of the games directory and the profile directory. These lists are created that contain the complete contents of this folder path, name, size, date and time. These lists are generated so that they are compatible with Total Commander Plugin "DiskDir". This plugin allows then, almost to himself in Total Commander virtually move in WCS folder and in the player's profile folder, as if you had TC started directly on the PC of the player. This is comfortable and easy for the supporters who can thus get an idea of this folder.
Accordingly, there are two new options: "With directory list of WCS-folder" and "directory list with the profile folder".
The test installation has been completely redeveloped. So far, this test could only be carried out when DBST WCS for the existing installation contained a corresponding MD5 file. When an unknown engine version, the test was not performed in accordance with, as it necessary file was missing. Instead, now basically performed independently of the existing engine MD5 checking all provided files and only then checked for associated versions. For this, the calculated MD5 hashes are compared with a new built-in list and issued in accordance the corresponding version. If no match can be found, the calculated hash is output instead. The new test method ensures that the important WCS base (VP files) can always be checked.
The Packers switched from ZIP to 7-Zip which just much more efficient working with the contents of the Support Archives, which the archives are smaller by several factors.
As DBST has solved a long time in the environment of Freespace and already since the first public version 1.0 provides significantly more than just the fs2_open.log file, the name of the Support Archives has now been changed from "fs2_open_SupportTool" on "WCS_SupportTool_Data" ,
The log some Versionsbezeichungen dbst.log named more precisely and to made to the state of the new options monitor more minor changes.
More Splash boxes added, so is currently shown on older PCs always what DBST doing.
In the Option group of versions of the icons of the respective engines added.
