Re: Easy US Flag Maker

Post by wolfeman »

It will have to be sometime on Wednesday. Basically I down loaded the zip file into the users/public/documents/vectric/9.5/gadget folder. Unzipped it there. The Easyusflag folder is there but the .lua file or what ever that ending is (Brain fart) does not show up in the Easyusflag folder using the install gadget in Vectric. If I use the windows explorer it shows the file. I click it and askes me what program to use to open it so I tell it vectric and it tells me it can not run the file. I copied the file manually to the the users/public/documents/vectric/9.5/ gadget/ Easyusflag folder and it does not show up. I have also tried other folders but when I open the folder the main file just will not show up. No error codes just no file. Wanted to make sure it worked in 9.5 before spending a lot of time trying to figure it out. Thanks. I have gotten other gadgets to install so I know some work. I will have to mess with it more. Thanks for your time and what looks to be a great program since I have been working on this very project ( a Flag) for the last week. Have a good day. Never mind I figured it out. Read next response. Thanks again.

Never mind I got it figured out. Thanks for your concern. The biggest part I was not creating a job before trying to run the Gadget. Thanks again.

Hi Wolfman,

Did you get an error message "No Job Loaded"? You should have gotten one... I will look at the code and see if it is working. But after setting here thing about it, I see the error is not very clear on what is wrong. But, let me know on if you got the error.
Thanks,
Jim

Hey Jim, Yes this time I did get a error saying that there was no job open. I used a different computer and things went fine. I will go back to the other computer and see if it will run there, older laptop. On the laptop computer that I had trouble with, one time it did say that "this will not run on this computer". I just figured I was doing something wrong. MOST LIKELY. Thanks for the great Gadget. Looks like a lot of people are enjoying it too. If anything else comes up I will let you know. :D

Hello All,

Sorry for the multi-post on this; I wish I could update older post.

Okay... I just fixed all 9 flag Gadget files with proper Error Trapping.

Hello All,

I have added the USA Air Force flag to the Easy Flag Maker Gadgets.

Please have a look and let me know what you think. If you would like to see other flags added let me know. I got this down to a process for putting objects on the correct layers and cleaning up the drawing. I can do this even faster, if you can send me the CRV drawing of the flag you want.

Have fun! :)

Hello all,

Just completed the US Navy Logo flag gadget.

I do draw these images myself. Therefore, if you're interested in a different armed forces logo or seal please let me know.
