Virtual Master version 4.0 Beta 1 released

I am happy to announce that after years of silence, I am finally able to release a beta version of the new Virtual Master.

This version contains a lot of improvements. The highlights are:

The report is now a .html file, which makes it much more user friendly. You can read it in any browser. In the same way, mails are now html formatted.

The program has a new look with a black skin.

The encrypted script now contains any picture and sound file that you use. They no longer need to be on the sub’s computer.

The report from an encrypted script is now a zip file which contains any pictures taken with a webcam.

You can now send mails using SSL / TLS. This also means that you can use a Google account to send mails.

The program now asks the user for permissions to send mail, use ftp, use webcam, and launch files. This is a security measure I have wanted to put in the program for a long time.

Possibility of changing picture location when importing clothes. This is useful if you receive a cloth file with pictures from the sub. Or if you change the location of your pictures.

You now have Flag Groups.
◦ You can connect a flag to a flag group.
◦ You can set all flags in a group with one statement: SetFlagGroup.
◦ You can remove all flags in a group with one statement: RemoveFlagGroup.

You can see the complete list of improvements in the manual.

Important: You cannot use a script file that has been encrypted with version 3.4 or earlier. The encrypted script has changed dramatic in version 4. This means that if you have a sub using an encrypted script, you need to encrypt the script again with version 4, and send the resulting .vme file to the sub. The sub needs to delete the status file, and start over with the new script. I apologize for the inconvenience that gives, but it is necessary to gain the benefits from version 4.

Remember that this is the first beta version. The program is likely to contain bugs. If you experience any bugs, create a thread in the forum “Questions, suggestions and tips”.

Have fun!

  1. I forgot to mention that version 4 cannot run a script that has been encrypted with version 3. It needs to be encrypted with version 4. I will update the documentation as soon as I have time to do it.

    @rubberdog Thank you. 🙂
