    Hello! ;)

    I'm here to show you my new finished project coded in VB.NET! I created a full program that allows you to make a PEX permissions.yml file very easily with no errors!

    I present you:

    PermissionsEx configuration program

    You can:
    • Add a group (and set up the name, the prefix, the permissions, the inheritance, the permission to build and if this is the default group)
    • Add a player (and set up his group, his permissions)
    • Create a completely valid permissions.yml file

    DOWNLOADS (notice that all the old links are dead, working on it):
    Example of a generated permissions.yml file with only Essentials permission nodes:






    A good presentation video from @oceantheskatr ;)

    - The first version of the PermissionsEx configuration program.
    - Allowed ' and * characters for the permissions while creating a group.
    - Changed some graphic elements.
    - Allows you to set specific permissions for a player.
    - Fixed the bug while save the permissions.yml file.
    - Changed some graphic elements.
    - Some bugs removed.
    - Now you can make your own prefix if you don't want to setup one.
    - The prefix color is reset at the end of it.
    - You can now delete an user without errors.
    - Color names are now the same as Bukkit colors.
    - Some bugs removed.
    - Few minor bugs removed while saving the file.

    If you found a bug or you have suggestions, please leave a comment, it will be very useful :)

    Have a good day :D

  2. @nathan060700 This is actually pretty nice. Well done, I'm sure it will help a lot of people struggling with Pex.

    Haha thank you! :D

    I had a server for 4 years ago and the PEX configuration was the most difficult part to do, I thought a simple program can help a lot of people ^^

    (By the way sorry if i do mistakes in english, i'm french ^^)

  6. @nathan060700 Please update your links. They have been removed due to Mega.

    OP can't catch a break :p

    @nathan060700 You should get Dropbox and put the files on there, and then link the URL for the files here.

    I did it, all the links are Dropbox links now ;) And I must say I never used Dropbox, I just did an account 5 minutes ago and I love this software :D

    @nathan060700 Yeah, it's really good to have! Also, if you change the ?dl=0 to ?dl=1 then it will automatically download when a person clicks the link :)

    Yeah, this is really nice actually. It is good for starting out servers. You should do this for some more (GroupManager, bpermissions)

    Yes I thought about that and much more: a complete program that allows you to configure lot of plugins (like PEX, iConomy, Lockette and much more) in one exe, I think it can be a very good project! ;)

    I've got a few things:
    - When you click + to add players, then close that window, then hit + again, it will add the groups to the list again (a1.jpg).
    - If I click on a player that I've created, then click minus, I get an error (a2.jpg).
    - If I add a permission to a player, then click "Add the player" and click the plus to add another player, it shows the permission for that player too.
    - More customization for prefixes! An option that allows for users to type the prefix themselves. Maybe a radio button right above "The color of the prefix".
    - Names of colours should be changed to be the same as the Bukkit colour code names. These are the actual names.
    - You should put a space and reset after prefixes. Currently it's like this "&4[Admin]" but it should be "&4[Admin] &r". This will allow for a much cleaner and less cluttered look.
    - "Developper: nathan060700", developer has one P :)
    - If neither a prefix style or colour is picked, I get one alert after another. It may be better to either only show the first or make one that says both are missing.

    That's all I've found for now, however I really like your program! I has a very good structure and besides the bugs that are pretty much guaranteed with any program, I'm quite content with it. I really hope you'll add some of those features, as I think they'd be quite beneficial.

    Once you fix up those bugs, I'll make a video/tutorial on it for my YouTube channel :) (TheMineShack)

    Oh the video is basically guaranteed :p I tried to do one yesterday, but wasn't happy with what I was saying/how I was explaining, so I redid it today and noticed a few problems, so reported them to you and figured I'd wait until you fixed it :D I'll do the actual one either later today, or tomorrow morning!

    Sorry, but i'm coding only in VB.NET and I don't know the java language :/ I tried to learn it but I don't have time...

    What you can do:
    - Use BootCamp on your Mac (dual boot with OS X and Windows)
    - Use VMware (OS emulator, you can run Windows on OS X, very useful!)

    That's it, sorry :s

    @theo747 There are also paid options that allow you to run Windows programs on Mac without having to dual boot/use virtual machine/etc., however I'm not able to post links to them here. Feel free to search for them yourself IF you want to.

    Dropbox latest link is now working, sorry for the inconvenience ! :rolleyes:

    Just an idea, but is it possible to have the program read your plugins files and auto create the prefixes and permissions?

    Also what about a way to load a pre existing permissions file to the program for edits?

    Yea I think it could be added in a future update, but now I don't have time to code because of my studies, I don't even know if my tool still works for the latest versions of PEX (is PEX always here ? :confused:), i'll see that in the next 2 months ;)
