File Description

This appears to be a nifty little tool for Morrowind, which allows the user to find mods from a database, and presumably download.

I can't give much more of a description than that, as the program doesn't work for me; if it's broken for more people, the file will be taken down.

However, the tool appears to be very useful for Morrowind players.

Morrowind Mods Database v.1.2     (by Raveren, Clockwork City, 2007)

MMbase is a program which allows You searching out information about plugins for TES III Morrowind, on the basis of Raveren`s database.


INSTALLATION

MMBase.exe needs Microsoft Framework .NET v.2.0 - you can download it from here :
[http://dobreprogramy.pl/index.php?dz=22&id=1375&t=40], 
It requires also Windows Installer 3.1, from here :
[http://www.mks.com.pl/pobierz.php]

USAGE

After launching, the program displays load screen (database is loading), and then the main window of MMbase. We select proper mode by clicking specific bookmark in the lower part of the window (Category search, Advanced search, Table view). In the upper part of the window you can find subrecord's data (mod's name, author, region, race etc.) filtered by chosen criteria. We can browse records with buttons on the blue toolbar. With "Open page" button we can open a browser window on a webpage defined by displayed URL.
 
Category search:
- we select the category, subcategory, keyword and author, step by step, not simultaneously. If we select any option from the list, filtered records will be displayed in the upper half of the window (we can browse them with buttons on the blue toolbar)
- if we go back to the searching menu (e.g. to the "Category" list), the next list will be cleaned out - only options with proper records in database are displayed (it is called a "context display").
 
Advanced search:
- in this bookmark we can independently select options from the lists 
- in order to activate the list we must click selection field above the list (e.g. "Category") - the list becomes active and we can select one or more options (with SHIFT or CTRL button) - if we select few options, it marks their sum (OR)
- selecting of few lists marks the product of specific conditions (AND)
- searching begins with clicking green button "Start" - it changes into red, the program is searching through the base - after finding records they are displayed in the upper part of the window
- with the "Back" button we can reverse last searching action (not always though...)
- searching can be performed in the whole base (selecting "Search in: base") or in the last searching results (selecting "Search in: Results")
- after activating the "Search in" field, you can enter any word in the "Search for word" box, and the base will be filtered by this specific word (it can be also some part of the word) and by marked categories. So, after selecting specific categories we can write some string of letters (and/or symbols) in the text box and push the "Start" button to perform the searching.
- the button "Save to file" opens dialogue window with title, author and url form selected records and we can save it in the text file (and even print it...)

Table view:
- the table shows the data from the filtered subrecords
- by clicking the main headline we can sort lines upwards or downwards

GENERAL NOTE :
Due to long developing time (over 4 months) and difficulties with assigning mods to categories, there can be some inconsistency (e.g. Teleportation Ring assign). Depending on mods nature and my own judgement, I placed them in various categories, so it`s best to search the mods in few different categories and subcategories.
