Notices And Instructions For Packing Other Files With The moovePack Tool.
moovepack.exe and your key (vel.private) to a folder of your choice.
Start moovepack.exe and go to top menu "Edit" -> "set authorization".
Put the path+name of the key file in field "Key File", for example:
"c:\rose\vel.private". Put "vel" as author (no other entry is valid here).
The URL you can freely pick yourself, you could put your rose profile
page or your homepage there if you like or any other URL of your choice.
You will now be able to create packages, which are digitally signed with
your name. You should not pass on your unique key to others of course.
USAGE: A package is created by going to top menu
"File" -> "Create Pack". The package name needs to end in extension .MPZ.
To be able to modify a package at a later time you should save the "project"
via "File" menu -> "save" or "save as..", best
pick an extension like .MP (not MPZ, that you should only use for create
pack!) when chosing a file name to save
- INCLUDE FILES: just drag & drop UNI Files,
SRFs, JPGs/BMPs, Sounds etc. you want to be included in your package
from Windows onto the open moovepack program.
ROOMS: if you would
like to create a package of a pre-decorated room for example, you should
first start Roomancer and make a backup of that room via the "File" menu in
Roomancer. (*ATTENTION MOOVE ONLINE ROOMANCER USERS* If you do the backup while being in
"mature mode" (moove online Roomancer), the room will only be available to moove online Roomancer
users in mature mode, regardless of you checking the "for mature
users" box in moovepack or not. So, if you would like your room package
to be available for rose life members as well, you need to first log in
using Roomancer without the "mature mode", create your room and then do the
backup while still being in non-mature mode). You will find the backup
of the room in a subfolder of rose\backup\, if you make a backup of the
kitchen for example, you will find file "Kitchen.Roombackup" in folder
rose\backup\MediumRoom_West\ (because the kitchen is based on
MediumRoom_West). If you would like to create a package of the kitchen,
you would now use moovepack to locate file "Kitchen.Roombackup" by
clicking on the "Browse" button besides field "Backup File". Last not
least put the name of the room ("Kitchen" in this example) in field "Room
Name". You will not have to check box "Include ROM file" unless you
built this room on a ROM file that was not installed by moove, but by a
FURNITURE: to create
a furniture package, drag & drop the UNI file as well as SRFs & JPGs/BMPS
from Windows onto moovepack. Then click on the "Furniture" button. On
the next screen click "New" button, then pick the kind of furniture you
are putting in the package: Furniture, Gadget or Door. Put the name of
the DOORS furniture function of your UNI file (NOT the name of the UNI
file!) in field "Internal Name", the measurements under X/Y/Z
coordinates and finally the english and german name (if you don't know
or care about the german name, just put the english name in both fields).
You can add more than just one piece of furniture here of course.
the "Showcases.." button you can add files of your own that are located
in subfolders of rose\ShowCases\... , like for example new postures,
expressions, actions etc. You could for example put an expression you
created yourself called "grinning" into the package by adding this line
to the expression field:
- "grinning.thumb;grinning.post". Make sure that those 2 files do exist
in folder rose\ShowCases\Expressions (and not a subfolder of it) so that
they can be found.
- The user that installs your package however, will find your
expressions in subfolder rose\ShowCases\Expressions\vel\ which can be
accessed via the Show button -> Expressions -> vel in Roomancer. You can
proceed the same way with other ShowCases like postures, actions, games
you created. If you want to package tools you wrote, put them in
ShowCases\Tools\ when creating your package. The user will find them
under Show button -> NonMooveTools in Roomancer.
HTML: enter HTML
files using the HTML button, HTML files might be needed for games you
self-created .outfit files for the actor studio using the OUTFITS button.
JPG, BMP, SRF, ASM & MMG files do =not= need to be packaged.
