Is there any known reason for some of the plugins in the AOIsp repository to not download through the manager?
I was looking at a file the other day, and realized that I needed Procedural Implicit objects to view it properly. I went digging, and realized that the implicit plugin does not display in the 'install' tab in SPManager. I downloaded it manually, and it seems to function (and shows properly in the 'manage' tab)
So far, I have found three plugins that don't show in-app but can be found when manually browsing:
Can anyone else confirm? Or am I missing something?
You can see the data being returned from the repository by pointing your web browser to
Searching for the section on TroyTools, I see it includes this line:
<error>Could not find XML entry in ZIP file</error>
So I downloaded the jar file to see what's in it. It looks a little strange. There's a file that looks like it contains information for the SPManager, but with the nonstandard name "TroyTools-java1.5.xml".
The section for Implicit contains this error:
<error>could not open version file: Implicit</error>
And looking at the repository, I see the version file is misnamed: it's called Implicit_2.7.txt instead of Implicit.txt. I just fixed that, and confirmed that it now shows up correctly.
Finally looking at the section for Fast3d, it has this line:
<ignore>Obsolete: 0.0 : Fast3d '-'</ignore>
So it looks like that one isn't supposed to show up.
Thanks for looking. At least I know that I'm not crazy... I can confirm Implicit now shows correctly for me. TroYTools does also have some issues w/displaying meta-data (as in: there isn't any) even if installed by hand, so I'm not surprised by what you found.
Peter, Here is an updated TroyTools.jar with a valid extensions.xml I did not do a fresh build, since I could not find the source. Just re-packaged what was there. Should be ready to just drop in the repository.
Fast3d is like a fast Sculpt for making little rocks
or such with a few mouse clicks. I have noticed the Hologram
plugin doesn't seem to work anymore - won't render with
Raytracer. Flag this ?
@Chris W, Thanks for the reminder. I actually fixed this about 18 months ago, but the update never made it to the repo. You can find a working .jar at [aoisp:discussion:457423]
@Peter: Could you take a look next time you have a chance? There are a few updates to one of the source files, as well as the working .jar

No joy with the new Hologram.jar - no image in the
edit_mapping window and no output in render (Raytracer).
I get this alert error :
Exception in thread "Raytracer main thread" java.lang.AbstractMethodError
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
I have attatched the full log.
Akk! Confirmed, not sure what happened, I'll work on it a bit later.
Fixed! Two Line change, but updated some of the docs while in there.
@Peter: now it should be ready.

chur bro !
Confirm new Hologram.jar working. Have tried in the
past to use this for putting tree's in my scenes.
(the attatched aoi file I used to test is 13.5 mb)
