Hey JayJay, how do you load clothes as an add-on and not replace currently worn items? I couldn't find it on the 1.0 version and wonder if you can do it on this newest 1.1 version?

This is an awesome plugin!!
One question, is it possible to add a quick toggle button to the main UI? Or do I have to open the session plugins tab every time?

Edit: nevermind, after I reloaded I see a new button :D

This plugin is SO much better than the built-in browser. Thank you!

I'm having a weird problem though... I can't get my local general presets to show up. I have 'Preset General' as the resource type, "Any Tags" and "Local & Packaged" selected.

All I see are packaged general presets. Is it just me?

Thanks again!
 
This plugin is a game changer! Must have! Is it possible to open the browser window with the ui assist interface?

You're correct, there is a bug with that - which I can reproduced. I'll fix it for the next release. Thanks for reporting
 
JayJayWon updated BrowserAssist with a new update entry:

  • Completely new Plugin Custom UI (available under Session Plugins > Browser Assist> Custom UI).
  • Additional options to position the launch button on the main VAM UI. Includes the option to replace the default Scene Browser button.
  • Browser filter settings are now per resource. So if you switch between resource types, it will remember what your filter settings were for...

maybe I missed it, but this plugin takes forever to load - is there a way to have it replace vam's default browser entirely so just BA initially loads and not vams?
 
JayJayWon updated BrowserAssist with a new update entry:

BrowserAssist v1.4 Update

New features:
  • Load a random resource from the resource browser results
  • Load a random resource from the current resource selections

JayJayWon updated BrowserAssist with a new update entry:

BrowserAssist v1.5 Update

New Features:
  • Browser Assist UI is more tightly embedded to the VAM UI (this can be disabled in the Plugin Settings UI). As well as being launched from the VAM UI, Browser Assist now moves with the VAM UI and appears and disappears as different VAM UI windows are selected.
  • Improved plugin load speeds. A complete rework of the plugin data structure and startup sequence has been implemented to reduce the plugin startup speed. In some cases this may be 5 times quicker than...

JayJayWon updated BrowserAssist with a new update entry:

BA v1.5 Release SUSPENDED

I'm suspending this release at the moment, due to a bug someone reported in the upgrade process. I'm not certain what the impact of this might be and I want to avoid people losing their saved tags etc. I'll update when I know more.

For now the VAR is not available on my Patreon. Please avoid using the .11 VAR for now, if you have already downloaded it.

That all looks very odd. Is there anything unusual about you Custom\Atom\Person\Appearance folder? Perhaps some symbolic links setup? In particular there seems to be a sub folder called: Custom\Atom\Person\Appearance\Nic which is causing problems.
 
Its a ghost file and cant be deleted or renamed. just another reason windows sucks major ass. Any idea how to delete it I tried unlocker but that didn't work. I think I went to create a new folder and left a space at the end by mistake.
 
I cant even delete it through command prompt as admin so guess that's it then.

EDIT - I sorted it by browsing the file structure using 7zip and shift + deleting the problem file. How the cmd couldn't do this I have no idea. Everything works properly now.

BrowserAssist v1.6 Update

  • Selected local resources can be moved between folders.
New resource info tab allows:

Can't get the Symbolic Link setup. I run the 'CreateBASymLinks.bat' file as administrator, press 'Y', and Command Prompt closes, no links are created and I still can't favorite or rename in VAM. Any alternative methods to get this running?
