Changelog 1.9.1
  • Completed refactoring. Adding new features should be much less painful
  • Fixed bug, where you could "run" a demo, when none was selected
  • Added context menu to list view
  • Added dummy editor

The editor obviously does not do anything useful, yet. Next, I'll be adding a backup feature and a simple filter to remove HUD messages.

Looking good

Was nice to see an up to date version being used on today's Live edition of STOked.

The command line to grab the audio from your .demo file is:
-demo_play_60fps yourdemofilename -audiooutput "\yourfilename.wav" -noInactive 1

This will open CDR and record a .wav to the root of your STO installation drive. [eg, in my case D:]

For synching reasons this would be the last step in CDR before passing your unedited footage to your NLE.

NotifySendWithData and NotifySend are the two bad boys re: OnScreen messages.

I cannot for the life of me remember how to remove Player/BOF abilty graphics from the Demo.

Changelog 1.9.4
  • Redesigned the way to handle command line arguments, makes it easier to incorporate new command line options
  • Added a "Render Demo" dialog, that let's you choose the file format of the rendered screen shots (jpg/tga)

Next for today: Backup option in Demo Editor and Message removal filter.

Changelog 2.0.0
  • Added filters menu to Demo Editor
  • Added "Remove Notifications" filter
    • Scans for NotifySend and NotifySendWithData messages
    • Allows you to select which messages to remove
    • Allows for preview of the filtered file, so you do not have to destroy your original demo with an untested result.

Caution! Please use the "Backup demo" and "Preview" functionality extensively. I've tested this hack with only one demo file. It worked fine, but there is no guarantee, that there isn't a bug in there, I have overlooked.

Next, I'll spending some more time on the UI before I implement a second or third filter. I'm not happy with the flow of "select demo -> edit -> filter -> remove notification --> ok --> close --> play". That should be doable with half the amount of clicks.

But something is better than nothing. Again: Backup often!

Changelog 2.1.0
  • Added main menu
  • Added keyboard shortcuts for all commands (see OP for list)

The "classic" buttons at the bottom of the window will be gone in 2.2.0. Also, I want to reduce the file size. Currently each icon is included once per menu item that uses it, but there is no reason, why the context menu "Play Demo", tool bar "Play Demo", and menu "Play Demo" should need three different icon resources, when it is the same picture.

I get a corrupt file that crashes my client if I try to remove notifications such as "@XYZ has logged off". Could you have a look if there have been any changes in the format the demos are saved?
