    How is this with kontakt 5.6.6? Right now I have to resize every wallpaper I download everytime, maybe this workflow will be smoother?

    @dazz:

    I bought your app and I'm happy you created it but:

    Often it happens that nicnt files created do contain the same SNIPD previously generated for another library so, Kontakt miserably crash and you're forced to regenerate a new nicnt from scratch with all it is involved: nicnt + xml file + plist deletion... (and hope that the new file will do the right job)

    Is there no way to implement an "intelligent" way to generate nicnt file like the ability, from the app, to scan for already generate snipd to avoid conflicts ?

    thanks ;-)

    At a guess the program would have to scan the registry etc for SNPID/details of all libraries added thru the library tab prior to creating the nicnt itself or possibly let the user manually insert any such detail before creating the nicnt itself.
    Also remember many users adding libraries that are not player etc....Another consideration would be how method of activating libraries radically changing at the moment.
    To implement such might possibly be a quite significant task that is also likely to incur a substantial cost that must be passed to the user.
    Also some degree of collaboration with NI themselves most likely a sensible idea but doubt this is gonna happen lol :) :bow:

    So I used it - the SNPID number that it gave as default was 'ff123', so I trusted it and went ahead.
    Well, the resultant xml file in the service centre claims:
    <SNPID>000</SNPID>

    So what's going on?
    And anyway, I thought Kontakt needed it to be a 3 digit number 999 or below, no? So what's with the 'ff'?
    And the advertiser here says it has an auto mode - well is that automatically random, and therefore prone to fail? (Number duplication with files from other sources). Or is it an intelligent 'auto' that actually checks the library before accidentally duplicating?

    Since it costs money, it could be expected to work in an efficient and error free way - that would be cool.

    I also noticed that if you want to make your own SNPID number, you cannot simply enter the number in the SNPID box, because if you do so, it will totally ignore what you've done. For some reason it allows you to do that and ignores you, unless you tick the box 'manual Snpid'. (As if it would be common to manually enter a number that you have no intention of it applying!) And as for the default 'FF123' which since it entered that number itself in the box would be commonly understood to be the number it uses, no, it seems to also ignore its own entry there too.

    So it seems a useful tool, but surprisingly unintuitive! And somewhat lacking in basic function. Handy though for making a number if you do it right.

    Also the 'shrink image to fit' for wallpaper looks like it works, until you actually load the library and it has apparently not shrunk at all. So you'll see only a tiny part of the actual image.

    Also you can add text to the image but you can't move the text so far as I can see, which means you are unlikely to be able to read it at all if it goes over the image getting obscured due to the picture behind it.

    Maybe there's something I'm doing wrong... but that's my experience as a new user.

    I'm against charging money for this (or any other) half-baked tool template script! :knock:
    It should be a voluntary, non-profit initiative, helping newbies.

    Half-baked as you say. at best.
    For a paid piece of software It does'nt really do much. It just tries. It's the beginning of an alpha state version 0 of a program.
    Collecting money for that actual kind of bedroom "programming" is a little immodest indeed.

    And BTW, it's not a library creator. It's a text stream writer and a crude little png editor.
