Well, let's face it -- this is what we do :)
The main reason for the existence of Mirality Systems is for the software
that I write; though do bear in mind that this is more of a hobby than a
day-job, which is why there isn't all that much of it here.
At the moment, there are three main programs that I've made publically available:
|Dynamic Signature Generator (DynaSig)|
||This is a handy little program that will add a randomly selected quote to the bottom of your email or newsreader signature, and (if requested) will switch quotes at regular intervals.
At the moment, this program is undergoing a massive overhaul (and an almost complete rewrite), so isn't available right now. If you're interested, send me some feedback and let me know; if enough people are interested I might either put the old version back up or give higher priority to development of the new version.
||Perhaps you've heard of the Pueblo MUD client, originally developed by Chaco Communications, Inc? Well, this is the new and improved version.
Basically, Pueblo/UE is a client program that allows you to connect to and interact with all sorts of virtual worlds on the Internet; for example, MUDs, MUSHes, and MOOs. If you haven't even heard of those before, you should probably read the in-depth description on the Pueblo page. A couple of brief summaries that'll give you the basic idea, however: a world could be similar to either a multiplayer text adventure game, or a chathouse (like a chatroom, but a lot bigger, and you can move around in it) -- and frequently both.
|MAX Codelist Manager|
||A handy little utility that reads Action Replay MAX codelist files and lets you generate a new codelist containing just those codes that you actually want. Saves lots of space on your memory card!
I've written a few utilities and a few agents for Creatures 3 and Docking
Station. They're quite fun, though of course I'm a little biased on the
I've used Inno Setup quite a bit, and it's by far my favourite installer.
I'm pretty active in the Inno newsgroups (at least at the moment), but I
thought I'd help out a bit more by posting some handy little snippets that
I use myself. If you've ever created an installer with Inno Setup, you
should have a look.
I've also written a great many other programs that aren't really in a
releasable state at the moment, although in some cases it wouldn't take
too much work to get them that way. Some of these I wrote for my own use,
some of them I wrote just to see if I could, or just for fun.
Here's a list of some of the ones that are closest to completion, and
that I think other people might be interested in; if anybody is interested
in using one of these, send me some feedback and I might make a public
release out of them.
- Resource browser for several versions of You Don't Know Jack
(including the ability to read the questions, play the sounds, and
listen to the end-of-game commercials)
- Vortex contents manipulator for Black and White
- Savegame world data browser for Dungeon Siege
Note: I don't condone cheating in games (most especially not in
multiplayer games). In most cases when I wrote a program that could
allow such I did it just for fun (and to see if I could), after I had
finished playing the game in question.
