Yes it can be anywhere.

Robert, I've opened the ME numerous times without then importing a mission file and have had no issues at all. Also, here is another screenie showing how the ME can be pinned to the task bar for a one-click launch after hitting ALT-TAB

Easy peasy. smile

If you have the latest version of Mission Editor, i.e. WOFF UE Mission editor v1.0, it is not true anymore. You can open mission file or not without any problem. The pdf tutorial by HarryH, especially WOFF error part was for WOFF3 Mission editor only. I am affraid, my English is very poor, so I am not able to create/update Mission Editor manual and I was glad that HarryH was so helpful and created one.

Thx guys for your kudos. I am glad you like the editor and that is the best feedback I can get.

Not at my WOFF machine but always planning...plus Lou made me think.
Do Windows shortcuts to .jar files work?

I have some additional info to share folks.

I run Windows 7.

You cannot place a ".jar" file on the "Task bar". It must be an executable type file to do this.
I set up a shortcut using the windows "cmd.exe" to invoke the ".jar" file. here is what I did.

I right clicked on the "WOFF UE_Mission_Editor.jar" and created a shortcut which I placed on my desktop.
I then right clicked on the shortcut and went into "properties".
I made changes to the following "Target:" field adding the text shown in red below:

Target: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start "G:\OBD Downloads\WOFF UE Version of Mission Editor\WOFF UE_Mission Editor\" "WOFF UE_Mission_Editor.jar"

Here is a pic of the properties I have set up for my WOFF UE MIssion Editor executable.



I also created a ".ico" file so I could have a nice icon on the executable and implemented it as shown in the pic above.

Next I dragged the new shortcut to the "Task bar" and volila, it stayed there.

I suspect this is what Lou has done but maybe windows 10 is more forgiving in this area.

Hmmm. Thanks for the heads up that it may not be as easy as making a shortcut and putting it in the task bar.
And, if true, thanks for saving me 90 minutes of my life as I would have tried to figure out what the hell was wrong now!

Duke, for Windows 10 it is fairly simple. Start by going to your desktop and right click, then choose 'New' and then 'Shortcut'. In the dialog box type explorer then add a space, and then go to where you have the UE jar file and on that file press and hold 'Shift' and then right click on the file and choose 'Copy as path'. Now paste that into the shortcut creation dialog box right behind where you typed in explorer and then press 'Next'. Now name the shortcut whatever you want and click 'finish'. You will see the default File Explorer icon but you can swap that out by right clicking on the shortcut and choosing 'Properties' and then 'Change icon'. At this point you can either use one of the stock Windows icons or make your own as Robert did, just make sure it is an .ico type file if you do that. Now drag your newly created shortcut to the task bar, and delete the desktop shortcut if you want to. Done.

Perhaps(?) because I had to use the aforementioned program to get W10 to play with .jar files I can also make shortcuts to them just like any other program.

Duke, I'm not sure why you had to go with that extra program. I am also running W10 and I simply installed the recommended Java version, (which according to the Java website is jre1.8.0_111), and I set it as the default program to open .jar files. Worked like a charm.

Yes it is a problem for some Windows 10 users and not others

Thanks Lou;

There is a warning in the tutorial rendered by HarryH, that once you open the editor you should not close it without importing a mission file or it will cause an error to WOFF. Not sure if this is still the case because his comments were related to WOFF3 and not WOFF UE. Hopefully someone will update the tutorial for WOFF_UE


Hi Robert, correct. The warning pertains to WOFF pre UE. I will update the PDF at some point when I have time to test with UE.

Cheers
