INTRODUCTION
HW2 Manager is a front-end program for Homeworld 2. It allows
you to setup and configure Homeworld 2's command-line options
before running the game. You can save your configurations to
disk, and even save shortcuts to the Desktop.

INSTALLATION
Extract the contents of this archive into a folder on your
harddrive. To run HW2 Manager, open the file named
"HW2_Manager.hta". This program requires that Windows Scripting
Host v5.6 be installed.

INSTRUCTIONS
To create a new config file, click the "New" button and enter
a name for your new config file when asked to.
To load a saved config file, select the file you want to load
in the "Config Files" field. Then, click the "Load" button.
Click the "Test" button to test the validity of your
settings.
Click the "Create Shortcut" button to create a shortcut on
your Desktop with your new settings.
Click the "Run Homeworld 2" button to run HW2 with the
current settings.

If you have set up the %HW2_ROOT% environmental variable as
instructed by the RDN docs, you can use it within the "HW2
Directory" dialogue.

RELEASE NOTES
CHANGES IN 1.21
Now fully compatible with the Windows XP theme.

CHANGES IN 1.20
Too many changes to list. Almost completely redone.
Have attempted a workaround so that it will work in Windows
98 again, but I no longer have a computer with this operating
system to test it on. Need feedback.

CHANGES IN 1.12
Probably some changes I can't remember.
The contents of the application window now grow and shrink
along with the window as it changes size.
Fixed a problem causing the "Run Homeworld 2" button not to
work in Windows XP. As a result, the button may no longer
work in Windows 98. Sorry!

CHANGES IN 1.11
Fixed the capitalization of some flags for case-sensitive
systems.

CHANGES IN 1.10
Changed the sizes and positions of some of the panes.

CHANGES IN 1.09
Variable keynames have been shortened to two characters plus
a number. This means that config files made using older
versions of the program are no longer compatible.
A slight speed optimization when retrieving data from
ConfigTable.
Switches are now printed to the screen dynamically, instead
of being stored in the file (decreases filesize).

CHANGES IN 1.08
The program now works properly if it is not installed on the
same drive as Homeworld 2.

CHANGES IN 1.07
Updated the program to include SnakeChiken's newly-found
command-line switches.
Fixed a bug.

CHANGES IN 1.06
Fixed the bug where the program would crash if the last-
loaded Config File no longer existed.
Fixed the bug where the program didn't check/save the proper
extension for Config Files.
Removed the "" option from the Config File list.
Added the "New" button to the main window.

CHANGES IN 1.05
Fixed the bug where Config Files with spaces in their
filenames would cause errors.

CHANGES IN 1.04
The name of the Config File being overwritten is now
displayed in the confirmation message.

CHANGES IN 1.03
The most recently used Config File is now automatically
loaded when the application starts.

CHANGES IN 1.02
Settings are no longer cleared when saving new config files.
The correct file extension is automatically added to new
config files if it is not already present.
The %HW2_ROOT% environmental variable is now properly taken
into account before displaying the Game-Type and Mod .big
file directories.
Note, that you will not be able to create shortcuts if you
are using the %HW2_ROOT% environmental variable.
Instances of the batch file used to run HW2 now close
automatically.
Now asks for confirmation when saving over old Config Files.

CHANGES IN 1.01
Minor fixes.

CHANGES IN 1.0
Initial release.
