A little bit of introduction

Welcome to my Tools Factory.

If you liked the old tools, you'll just love the new ones!

In fact, I've started rewriting them to provide an even better user experience, which includes (among other things) greater compatibility with non-Windows operative systems, such as Linux or Mac. As soon as a rewritten tool is released it will be placed in the main tool list, and the old one removed. Given the amount of tools, the process will take a while before being complete, though. In the meanwhile, the older tools will still be available inside the spoiler at the bottom.

Don't forget to read the FAQs below: if you don't bother reading them, I won't bother answering anything related.

Stay tuned!


Frequently Asked Questions

I can't start a tool. Help?
First of all, make sure to extract all files from the program archive. If the tool isn't working after extracting all files, you might be missing the proper runtime files, which are .NET Framework 2.0 (or higher) for Windows and Mono 2.6 (or higher) for others platforms.

I've found a bug. How do I report it?
From the Help menu, you can click on "Report issue" and follow the instructions. You will need a Google Code code account, but it will only take a couple of minutes anyway, in case you don't have one yet. Bug reports are extremely important as long as they're well made. That is, specifying the tool version, the problem, and any other possible information such as the operative system you're using etc. A step-by-step procedure to reproduce the bug is strongly encouraged: this way I can (hopefully) easily detect the problem, and fix it.

I've found some broken links/images. What should I do?
Although I do my best to avoid broken links, they might still happen. If that's the case, please tell me the links that aren't working any more and I'll fix them as soon as possible.

I'd like to suggest some new features for a tool. Is it okay?
Suggestions are always welcome. However, I still need to think and decide whether to actually implement them or not. If your ideas are good though, they will be probably be included in a newer release.

Thank you for all your efforts. Is there anything I can do to show my appreciation?
There are actually many ways. You could help me translating the tools. You could do good bug reports, or suggest new ideas. You could spread the word about the tools. You could even donate to promote further development: any amount is appreciated.
