thanks for sharing, but i wonder why i should use this plugin.
Z4 has lightbox and this is much faster than the texture and alphaloader was.
i just made shortcuts to my alpha and texture folders in the default lightbox folders. so i have a fast access to them through lightbox.
but thanks anyway
For me there is some reasons to use old loaders.
- I like the UI of old loaders, that big preview help me to decide which texture or alpha is good for my job.
Without it i must load some of them and using big preview of panels to see them which will use memory, or using external image viewers.
- Shift + Double Click (really it's Shift + 2x Double Click) on 24bit alphas will open it in Texture panel.
But in older loaders i can add any image (even color images) as alpha and it will open in alpha panel directly.
- If i load 100íTh texture from a category of old loader, next time i open the loader it will be
in same category and 100'th texture is selected which is great and i can use texures around it. I use similar names for similar textures to find them easy.
But in lightbox if i change the tab then back to texture it will start from default texture folder, and if i don't change the tab it will start from beginning of prev folder.
- With Lightbox when i open a folder it make the thumbs which it's slow for hires images. But in old loaders its one time at first, then it will be very fast.
Anyway the older loader has its own limits, only 10 categories and 250 images in every one. I use it for my fav textures and alphas.
