Edit : I am no longer working on or supporting this program. It pretty much does what it says on the tin and appears to work well for most people. Feel free to download it still though, if you think it may be useful.
For a while now I have been working on a Haptek application and this is a tentative beta release, I'd be glad if folks would give it a whirl and see if it works on other systems. All you need to do is unzip it and click on 'setup'. There's also a help file zipped with it that should answer most questions.
The installer it uses is the inbuilt one for Visual Basic Express but I am still a little unfamiliar with it but I think it will work.
For this program to work you need to install Micro$ofts .NET framework. The link I provide here is to version 3.5 and should be fine for these purposes as it includes the old versions too:Get .NET...Here's a quick run down : Hap Explorer
was created to make it easier to fiddle around with Haptek models and make each of their settings simpler to navigate when trying to create things like hap-files and animations. If you have tired of examining Figure Definition files for switches and parameters then you should find this tool useful.
If you have spent any time at all on Haptek then you may have found the simple command line interface of the player console a bit restrictive when it comes to messing around with the models and all their various settings.
With this program I have tried to put a front end on the Haptek Player for people who want easier access to a model's numerous settings and parameters etc. I hope this tool will help speed up the whole process.
At the time of writing this is considered a semi beta release as it is hoped that I will get some feedback on what if anything needs to be added to this. I have done a lot of testing but this still needs more, so unless you are happy to test this program without warranty, guarantees or all the rest of it then please do not use it.
Hap Explorer should run on Windows 2000 and XP - basically with a set up that will run the Haptek Player without difficulty - if it runs on anything else then I would be happy to hear about it. Many thanks.Features
