Mikey's Toolbox (PC/SINGLE PLAYER) - version 0.3.2

Heh. I “broke” it :slight_smile:

It doesn’t support multiple players – I used to get around not having multiple characters by creating characters with my alts :smiley:

Good thing that I don’t have to do that anymore, thanks to your tool :wink:

LoL, the reactions after every game update compared to this user toolmaker makes me think…

Have to add my accolades to the above for this tool. Thanks dude, added a whole new dimension to my solo play, without actually having to edit the SQL. That would have been too much like my day job :slight_smile:

I discovered this tool only recently; I was getting bored with my overpowered singleplayer character, but I didn’t want to loose all the nice bases I’ve built around the world so I started to look for solutions.

It’s truly fantastic and it works like charm! The only downside is that, even with version 0.3.2 I cannot transfer ownership of my thralls. Since I’ve raised them as my sons an daughters, is there any chance a future version will allow to transfer them too?

Make a guild with your original character. Join your new character to the guild with the check box:

The new character can then interact with the old character’s thralls.

Thanks, it works! With this workaround, now I can control all the thralls ‘inherited’ from the main character.

I’ve been using this tool lately and loving it, but now I ran into a problem. Everything was working fine and i was able to switch between my 3 characters on my save. Now when I start the toolbox it says multiple owners found…save game might be multiplayer or co-op game. I have never had a multiplayer or co-op game on this save. I can get in the game and access only one of my characters. I know the game had crashed on me once(possibly a mod, but it has not crashed again) before I started seeing this problem. I’m not sure what I’d have to do to fix it so I can access the other two characters. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Ok I was able to figure out the problem. I used the database program mentioned earlier on this thread to look at the save file. Apparently someone I know got into my game and created a character. Funny because I never saw it nor invited him to my game. I was able to delete him from the save and now everything works again.

Happy to hear you were able to solve your problem - and also that the Toolbox is still going strong :mechanical_arm:

My PC died on me a couple of weeks ago (it was 7+ years old and had served me well!), so it was time to move on. In the process, there’s the inevitable “what to keep before formatting” phase, and I stumbled on my old “Toolbox Icon full rez” file. Decided I’d post it here, for no particular reason other than it felt fitting.

Please help, every time I try to reload a save from backup I end up right back in character creation. Has anyone had this problem? I solved this issue, it wasn’t compatible with my locally hosted server. Now it seems to be interfering with a co-op player, but I’m not sure… It’s definitely a great tool for sure regardless.

Perhaps it was broken as of the latest patches, but while the toolbox was working perfectly a few days ago (I was running multiple characters in one savegame for a couple months) it now forces me to start a new character, even when I’ve got one selected in the toolbox. I’ve been trying to find a fix, but everything just refers me back to this page. Any help or info you could pass along would be greatly appreciated. Conan just isn’t as much fun without the use of this tool.

Hmm yes. I can see that happening, too. Might be related to that new Funcom Live Services account or whatever it is, I’d have to investigate. Note, for the record, the account system seems to work fine, and if there is an issue it’d be with the toolbox. Still, I have not looked into it and it might be entirely unrelated.

Yeah there really is only this thread for support, such as it is.

Yeah, looks like something has indeed changed with the database setup. Which makes perfect sense, if there’s an account system now (it used to rely entirely on your SteamID).

I’ll have to look into it further when I have a bit more time, I’m fairly confident it can be remedied, but no ETA.

Love the mod. Been using it for a year or so? Maybe less. But I agree that something has changed with the last patch or two. I keep getting a “multiple player’s found” error and can no longer switch between characters. Can’t even SEE the other characters or clans. Wish I knew enough coding to help you out, but I honestly don’t have a clue. Glad to see you are still looking at it.

Yeah I’m hoping to find a moment to look at it this coming weekend, though we have a major family event going on, so it’s a bit up in the air whether I’ll manage.

“Major family event” sounds like just the situation where I’d feel a sudden urge to spend several hours checking on some code. And I don’t even know anything about coding.

I’m attempting to learn python for research purposes. But i’m guessing you are using C+ or something for this based on SQLite?

I’m using good old Visual Studio (2015 to be exact, though I don’t think it matters), and the application itself is a C# WinForms app. Hopelessly out of fashion, but it gets the job done and it takes me half the time to mock up something because I’m so familiar with it. And yeah, it’s then coupled with SQLite for the database interaction.

WinForms have been declared dead more than a few times in my career, by various people, and yet it’s still around while whatever they were peddling at the time is often forgotten by now. Which is not to say WinForms is the be-all, end-all tool, far from it. I’ll grant it’s not in any way sexy though!

All that aside (who put that soapbox here??!), Python is a fine entry to programming, and while I found it slightly odd at first, I came to like it very much indeed after a while.
