Thread: Open Source NFO Viewer

  1. #1

    Talking Open Source NFO Viewer

    Anybody interested in a simple NFO/Diz viewer? The source is included and you are free to modify and redistribute.

    It's VERY simple, and is written in Delphi 6. No special components are needed to recompile it.

    Enlighten me as i am not a warez kinda guy and i have wondered for ages wtf does nfo and id_diz stand for? I get them with music occasionally and know what they are but not what they stand for. Shouldn't you have a very restrictive liscence and protection for your viewer , so then it can be cracked ?
    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    More features are bieng added as I sit here.

    1. Editing features inculding an ASCII "Pallete" to edit your own art
    2. Editing Features (copy,paste,select all, find, etc...)
    3. Purty icons
    4. The ability to make the editor read-only so you will not edit your current files by accident
    5. A help file (but even a monkey can run it)
    6. URL/E-mail highlighting (Not all URL's exist since things change so often)

    I will post it ASAP... Syini666, cheesegoduk and Noia are testing it as I code it
