The big update this time is Mod support!
At startup, Campaign Manager with look in a \Mods folder for dll files it can consume to extend its functionality.
Mods can currently:
- Add buttons to the main menu bar.
- Play / stop music.
- Change the background canvas color.
- Get a collection of the campaign encounters.
Mods are written in C# .NET 4.8. Documentation is included with Campaign Manager for how to setup Visual Studio to create a mod, and a sample mod is included with the Campaign Manager installer.
Example code snippets:
// Add a button to the Tools menu.
_sampleButtonPressedEvent = new EventHandler(SampleButtonPressed);
"Tooltip to demonstrate opening a form for the sample mod.",
_campaignManagerHost.ActiveCampaign().ActiveCanvas().BackgroundColor = Color.Blue;
String newOutput = "";
foreach (IEncounter loopEncounter in this._campaignManagerHost.ActiveCampaign().ActiveCanvas().Encounters)
newOutput += loopEncounter.Name + Environment.NewLine;
textBoxOutput.Text = newOutput;
The API functionality will extend over time, but this is the first step for any developer to extend the Campaign Manager user interface and capabilities.
