Editing dc++

Post by kevwhiteley » 2006-01-19 12:16

I have d/loaded dc++ 0.68 and i am wanting to change things, like the name of it for example, the wording, and i want to change the look of the console, i do not have a clue how to do it, do i need some software?


I am wanting to edit the program to have the same look and feel as the [WH] theme (balck white and orange) as my website is this colour, can anyone help at all, just editing the console will be good, i can teach myself from there.




Cheers :?:

First of all you have to have access to Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (With C++ support) which is a Integrated Development Environment.

Then you need the sourcecode (available from CVS).

To understand what's going on in the code you also need some knowledge about Windows-specific C++ code (www.codeproject.com is a good source of info)

Is it possable for you to be able to do this for me? or is that out of the question, the following is what i want doing really


Want doing:-

Name changing to [WH]dc++ wherever it says dc++
Colour theme changing to black,orange and minimum white
Segment downloading

Other stuff (not wanted but would be nice)

Where the [wh]DC++ text is at the top of the console text saying designed for whiteleys hubs by - Your name here (Or whoever can do it)

Segment d/loading



That would be all really, is this a easy job and would i be able to do it with no experience in c++ ??

The bonus is that Visual C++ Toolkit is free, but I'm not sure you'll be able to use it to compile DC++ without a bit of ingenuity.

CVS is a tool for keeping track of versions of software. Unless you know what you're doing, you don't need (or want) to deal with the source code in CVS - it hasn't been released and often has known bugs.

Segment downloading is a bit more than "a few things". Why don't you use the source code of a client that already has that, it should make it a lot simpler for you.

Ah, you just want ugly colours and deceptive naming with the effect of having made another pointless mod? That's.. sad =)
