This is one of my favorite plugins. It adds so many features to the VaM browser. I actually moved my 500g+ VaM folder and reformatted its drive for NTFS because I wanted to use JayJayWon's symlink features. Searching is also much faster and easier in this format as are tags (tagging) and other info additions. Try out the free version but it's worth the small monthly for this and JayJay's other plugins. While we're at it check out Pluginassist it's free and cuts your custom scene edit/creation time by a lot.
Your plugins are amazing, I have been using this Browser Assist since I started VAM and I am happy to offer support when I can afford to do so.
I did find a bug with 1.19.0: When "clothing (male)" is selected and there is no male atom in the scene, it will spam the error log repeatedly with the following message:
!> BrowserAssist.Update: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
at JayJayWon.ResourcePrimaryActionUI.UpdateMainButtonLabelClothing () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
at JayJayWon.ResourcePrimaryActionUI.RefreshActiveClothing () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
at JayJayWon.BrowserAssist.Update () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
Everything else appears to work as expected. WELL DONE!
No lie, this plugin is awesome. I used the free version for a bit and after figuring out how to use it effectivly, I can't imagine ever going back to the standard browser. The combination with the update VAM did and using this, just regular things I do all the time are sooo much faster and easier. I love this. Keep up the good work.
I've been looking for a way to see appearances and scenes that may be wrapped up in VAR files downloaded to the addon packages folder. This browser appears to be bringing all scenes and appearances forward making it much easier to organize my content. Big thumbs up!!!!
Been a while since my last rating - and there's a lot of additional features being added almost weekly.
* Compatibility with Varmanagers/TagPersistence even for deleted/removed vars.
* Ability to "dock" the BA GUI to the VaM-GUI <- it's hard to explain, but this is one of the best QoL ideas ever.
* Increasing integration with UIAssist
* 1001 small QoL-fixes & bugfixes (JJW is one of the most professional devs wrt bugfixes - most bugreports get a reply within a day & a fix within a fortnite)
Can't stress enough how essential JJW's plugins are for me - both BrowserAssist & UIAssist are increasingly replacing VaM's native interface in my workflow.
They're faster, more versatile, A LOT more "human-friendly" to use, vastly customizeable, better search-functions ...
... if you've been annoyed beyond mere frustration by VaM's laggy, rigid, inflexible, feature-deprived native interface, then you need this.
If you don't think you need this, you're either not using VaM (though you might think you do), or you've become "numb to the pain" of using VaM's interface.
UIAssist was already very good, but Browser-Assist's development has quite simply been astonishing to behold - new features are added basically every fortnite, bugs are sorted out quicklly and JJW is quick to react to & incorporate feature-request.
Just over the last three weeks, I've watched a single feature request turn into what is basically a separate additional filemanager for local files (with treeview!!!) that represents local files both "flattened" AND within their actual location on disk. I'm still discovering just how many ways this supports my workflow.
This is incredible. I subscribed to this creator for the UI assist plugin, which is great, but this is the next level. It's many steps ahead of the built in scene browser and browses almost everything else just as well too!
