Installation Instructions:
  1. Download latest BrowserAssist(Free) var file from VAMHub and place in the AddonPackages folder
  2. Start VAM and open Session Plugins page.
  3. Use Add Plugin and Select File to select the BrowserAssist.cslist file from the downloaded VAR package.
  4. To set BrowserAssist to always load on VAM Start, navigate to the Session Plugin Presets page. Select Change User Defaults and then press 'Set Current As User Default'
  5. To enable support for Browser Assist to Hide, Favourite, Save, Rename or Delete Files and to Tag clothing items, there is a windows batch script that also needs to be run from Windows Explorer (you may need to be a Windows Administrator to successfully run it). This batch script will create some symbolic folder links between different folders inside your VAM folder structure. This will allow Browser Assist to have write access to 4 folders under the main VAM folder. It is required because (without the symbolic links) VAM plugins cannot write to most folders in the VAM installation - which is required to set a Hidden or Favourite flag on a resource. To enable this functionality, the following steps will need to be performed once:
a) Install BrowserAssist as a session plugin in VAM
b) Execute the following batch file from Windows Explorer: VAM\Saves\PluginData\JayJayWon\BrowserAssist\CreateBASymLinks.bat
c) Reload BrowserAssist plugin in VAM
Symbolic links require an NTFS file system, so this feature will not work on FAT32 or exFAT formatted drives.
WARNING: In theory, enabling this feature potentially allows a malicious VAM plugin to delete any or all files in the Custom, Saves or AddonPackagesFilePrefs folders under the main VAM folder. Ensure that you apply an appropriate level of caution and only source plugins from reliable and trusted creators.
Note:
The multi select feature of BrowserAssist is very powerful and allows you to apply tags and set the hidden or favourite status of many files/resources with a single click. In some scenarios this may not be easily reversible and requires some caution. For example, you can select every scene in your entire VAR library with a single button press and then instantly make them all set as Favourite (or Hidden) with a second button press. If the scenes were previously a mixture of Favourite and not, its not possible to revert to that mixture without going through each scene and individually setting its Favourite state.

An essential plugin IMO. Makes using the game so much friendlier. And the more it develops the better it gets. I started with the free and then upgraded to the Patreon version. If you come across an issue JJW resolves it for you ASAP which is nice. Happy Coconuts.

I can´t imagine playing VAM without this, or any other of JayJay´s plugins.
I have the full version, but the free version will suffice for most scenarios.
Thank you, JayJayWon, as not all of us can afford 100 + patreons.

Great plugin! Any way you can add an option to hide the names on each item? It would be a nice to have feature.

MUST HAVE for all VAM users. No more accidentally loading a scene while trying to use the god awful native browser in vam.
JJW creates some of the most useful and essential plugins for vam. Get the paid version. you won't be disappointed with the additional functions.
Delete function alone is worth the money.
Great job JJW!

I cannot use VAM without this plugin, it is truly a game changer! The free version is very good but if you want total control of your assets, you really need the supporter version, it is well worth the humble asking price. Each update brings amazing features from such a talented and proactive developer. I cannot thank you enough, JayJayWon!

When working I'd give it 5 stars, makes Vam so much easier to navigate, but for whatever reason no matter how many times I re install, make new symlinks, it's running but I have no UI button.....I give up, it shouldn't be this hard, unfortunate because if/when it works it's a fantastic plugin

Sorry to hear you are struggling to get it working. It would help if you reported the problem to me and gave me the opportunity to help resolve it for you. I'm nearly always able to help people resolve their problems. If you can report the issue and the details (either under Discussion or preferably on my Discord server https://discord.gg/msY7dHyxFR) then I'll do my best to resolve the issue for you.
