AMS Options
I decided to revamp this little tool and make it a little more user-friendly. For those of you who have never used AMS Options before, here's the run-down.

Purpose and Features
Give the user easy, simple and risk-free access to the AMS core files.
Give quick access to the Action File Editor, Action Plugin Compiler and AMS Script Editor from the main menu.
Allow the user to add custom tools to the main menu.

How is it Risk-free?
Incorrect editing of the AMS core files can inhibit AMS or cause it fail altogether. With AMS Options, you can restore the default files at any time from the main menu.

Currently Supported Core Files
_code_templates.xml
_globalvars.xml
_res_types.xml

Additions
This is a community tool so if you think of features you want added, then please let me know.
If you would like AMS Options to be able to edit more core files then, also, let me know.
I will attempt to accommodate any reasonable requests regarding this tool.

Enjoy! :D

Sorry, I posted while it was uploading. You must have tried to download it at that exact time. It's up there now.

Tested it and me likes. Be sure to terminate the program On Shutdown or you'll get the Vista close bug. (Which I just got. Windows 7 RTM Build 7600)

Glad you like.

As far as the terminate on shutdown, do you mean...

On Shutdown


Application.Exit(0);

If so, then all is well. I just uploaded the new build with the above code added.

EDIT: Not good, that causes the program to freeze on WinXP (x64);

Does that work on your machine Shadow?

If so I'll put a script in the code to make it adapt to the user's OS.

I'll work this out but for now, Windows 7 is not supported by AMS Options. I reuploaded the old version that is compatible with XP. I will post again when AMS Options becomes compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7.

If anyone has any tips on making this happen I'm all hears btw.

On Shutdown


Window.Close(Application.GetWndHandle(),CLOSEWND_T ERMINATE);

Ok, thank you. Issue resolved. AMS Options should now be compatible with Windows 7. New version has been uploaded.

Now that I know about that Windows 7 issue I can prevent this confusion in the future. Thank you very much Shadow and Imagine.

Since I started using this method of terminating the application, I've made a function in _notification_messages.lua called Application.Terminate();

It comes in very handy hehe :p

@CS

Where can I find the download link for AMS Options? In your website it seems to be omitted.

Thanks in advance!
