Advanced System Tweaker 2.0.0
« on: March 24, 2013, 12:37:25 PM »
First bug report/thoughts for AST v2.0.0:

1). When AST is started then "Remove Temp Files" lights up in blue but I didn't apply that tweak !!! And when I added this then the line showed up in green BEFORE I even had hit "Apply Tweaks".

2). I like the applied tweaks being shown in green. But tasks under "Maintenance" being highlighted in green, is something I don't like. I think they shouldn't be highlighted at all. After all, they're maintenance tasks that can/must/should be applied every now and then.

3). I have mixed feelings about the category "Maintenance". Because they're not tweaks at all. Some solutions for this "issue":
- Move them to a separate program.
- Move them to a separate tab.

That is just the item you have selected being highlighted. Once a tweak as been ran its text will go from white to blue.

The green is just to let you know you have added it to the list of tweaks to run on the system. Once they have been ran they will be blue. This is nothing more than a indicator to let the user know they have ran these on the current machine.

The program is add on driven. Advanced users can have anything they want. Which ever way the add ons folder is laid out is how the treeview is listed :-)
So if you changed the folders around in the add ons folder the tree view will list them that way.

A new suggestion for the next AST:
- when a tweak has been applied then that tweak shows up in green. But I have to open one or more "sub-trees" to find out where that applied tweak is "hidīng". Perhaps it's possible to add a counter that shows how many tweaks in a tree are applied ?

Something like "Speed Tweaks (30-2)". The figure "30" then tells that there're 30 tweaks listed in a (sub-)tree and the "2" (perhaps in green characters) would tell the user that of those 30 tweaks, 2 tweaks were applied.

Bottom left of the tree viewer has the current counter. :wink:

Yes, I know. But it doesn't tell me where in which (sub-)tree those tweaks are "hiding out".

Yeah right now it just changes the color.

There are a lot more limits than normal when you have a program that loads custom add ons. You never know how or what will be loaded. So you can only do so much.

Right now the list of applied tweaks are kept in a key in the registry. The most I would be able to do is to provide a list a person can open that shows what they have done already.
