View Full Version : [Release] Exhale Interface Management for Starcraft v1.15.2

06-29-2008, 05:13 PM
1. General Information

Exhale is a fully featured interface management system for the StarCraft platform. You can create, move, and fill windows with whatever content you desire using premade functions that make it easy to build a stunning interface. Exhale is provided as an open source project.

You are welcome to include the Exhale source in your own projects to create your own interfaces, as long as you add the appropriate credits to the final product. I encourage you to make your releases open source.

2. Features

Window management including motion animation, opening and closing, animated dock icons, and a fully interactive window dock.
Trasparent or opaque windows.
Pre-made text buffers for windows, as well as the ability to add your own content.
Coordinate bounds checking.
Window focus management.
Fully functional sound engine.
Open source!

You can view a movie demonstrating some of the features here (http://perma.bwhacks.com/files/movies/exhale_demo.wmv).

very cool perma

Nice work!

06-29-2008, 06:13 PM
Wow.. Perma you are so ****ing professional.. I love it. A demonstration video, organized info and downloads, screenshots. Wow! WOW! Very good job. I'm extremely impressed.

06-29-2008, 06:14 PM
o_o. Very good job.

06-29-2008, 06:22 PM
awesome job. But isn't that video old?

06-29-2008, 06:28 PM
It's a bit older, from my initial showcase of Exhale. Some of the features that are shown in it have been improved significantly in the release, particularly refreshing issues thanks to Zephyrix.

06-29-2008, 06:38 PM
Interesting perspective on this one Perma.
I can't wait to see what programmers come up with.

06-29-2008, 11:00 PM
Beautifully done Perma. It's nice to see more work from you.

06-30-2008, 12:47 AM
Perma, I still have that shrine in the corner of my room for you, I guess those goats I sacrificed in the name of Permaphrost were not in vain...

You are the god of awesome.

bwt is it supposed to toggle really fast if I hold the mouse button down on a icon?

06-30-2008, 05:55 AM
Simply amazing, Perma.

06-30-2008, 06:56 AM
bwt is it supposed to toggle really fast if I hold the mouse button down on a icon?

Yeah. The hotkey hook doesn't wait for the key (or mouse button, in our case) to come back up before performing the actual toggle. Probably something that could be improved.

ZoMG ****ing awsome!! ♥ GJ!! ☻

Looks nice, I might integrate it into one of the future Chaoslauncher versions :)

06-30-2008, 09:45 PM
omg nice :P

07-01-2008, 02:27 AM
haha finally, been waiting for something like this. i use alot of UI mods on WoW and i just cant live w/o them

07-02-2008, 08:02 AM
i was messing with the chat log. idk how many other characters are like this, but the underscore(_) turns out as a box. you may wish to fix this.

also, if a message continues after the first line, then on the line, a "R" is placed.

07-02-2008, 08:20 AM
if you look in the characters part the underscore character isn't declared. You'd have to make one.

07-02-2008, 05:59 PM
if you look in the characters part the underscore character isn't declared. You'd have to make one.

That's right. Any characters that I was too lazy to create will be represented by a box.

07-03-2008, 08:23 PM
I thought about making this, but I didn't feel like spending the time. Good job, though; it looks nice.

07-08-2008, 04:55 AM
This is a great manager. Thanks Perma. =]

07-12-2008, 10:12 AM
Wow!!!! Nice man.

I can't wait to see who uses this, or to try it out for myself just to get used to it so when people do use it I'm already used to it...

Your going to keep updating it for bugs/features as well as for any more Starcraft patches right? :D

w00t +rep

07-12-2008, 02:55 PM
i just dowloaded it am i missing something causei cant open a window?

07-12-2008, 02:58 PM
Click on an icon in the dock on the right hand side.

07-12-2008, 03:08 PM
i dont see a dock though

07-12-2008, 03:09 PM
Did you inject the hack properly?

07-12-2008, 03:10 PM
how was i supposed to inject it like oblivion?

07-12-2008, 03:11 PM
Just double click the launcher when Starcraft is open. If you're running Vista, you'll need to right click the file and select the "run as administrator" option.

07-12-2008, 03:14 PM
I'm using XP i think and i did that

07-15-2008, 05:29 AM
I know this is off topic, but when is a Protoss mineral hack coming? Or if there is one, could I have a link please?
Why on Earth would you ask about a Protoss mineral hack in this thread? Besides, no hacker in their right mind would release a Protoss mineral hack to the public, let alone give it to you.

Anyways, I'll take a look at this today, Perma. Exhale still looks amazing.

08-08-2008, 11:28 PM
it wont run oblivion.dll :(

08-20-2008, 05:22 AM
lol I can someone explain to me what is it use for? I watch the demo but cannot understand what is it I just want to know what is is use for because I see the mouse move here n there in the window and nothing was in the window

08-20-2008, 01:54 PM
This is an open source proof of concept for developing an OS-like interface system within a game for use by other hack developers.

08-20-2008, 02:29 PM
so basically you can have a gui for your hacks with buttons in a window but have that window minimized on the side if the developers chose to do so?

08-20-2008, 03:58 PM
That's right.

09-05-2008, 01:09 PM
Pretty cool. I would use it but i dont have a use for it really...
