Hi Jason,

If in the end that nothing works out and the problem still persists, suggest you contact Rick Meyers and see what he has to say.

 

In the event he has resolved the issue for you, please share the solution on here.

 

Blessings,

Hello JPG and thank you for this suggestion. I am willing to give plenty of potentialities a whirl!

I would like to try to implement this, but I am completely unaware of the file structure of these files. I might just, for the sake of fun and laughs, try to open one of these files in a text/hex editor and see what I find.

 

I work commonly with CSS, HTML and eBook programming processes as well as relational database programming and once upon a time (decades ago now) created shareware applications for the PC. SO, I suppose I will see if I can figure this out.

 

If there is a good tutorial for this sort of thing on these forums, would you pass that my way?

Thank you again!


Jason

 

Long shot.

Perhaps if you change the abbreviation name in the file to NET1x it will work. I say this because in the e-Sword version abbreviation names have been reserved for official resources in the past, and maybe that is the case here.

Good day to you Stephen!

Thanks for this suggestion brother... I did write to Rick and it took several attemts to get a response, one which seemed to indicate that he is a very busy person. In the end, he told me it will not work because it is a premium module that I am trying to use, though it appears to me that it simply cannot be a premium module. I asked him about this and did not hear back again. Considering it took some prodding the last time - I decided to try to exhaust this pathway before bothering him again on this issue.

 

But, I assure you, if I ever get it to work, I will be only too glad to share the method AND, if I ever hear anything in a positive way about trying to do this, why wouldn't I share that functional module on this website? I would be only too glad to do so. It may take some doing for me to figure our how to create modules for e-Sword X users, but I would be willing to do it if at all possible, respected and appreciated.

 

Please remember, I just purchased e-Sword X a few weeks ago off the Apple store and had only heard of e-Sword for the PC up until  that point; coming from the OnlineBible (first PC (DOS!) then Macintosh versions) ---> Olive Tree pathway. I would like to get down the pathway of eSword X and make it a more common daily workflow kind of option for me, but I am still new to not only the application, but the thought process and "ethos" or "culture" of its users.

 

I am still looking at the module creation process for e-Sword, both PC and e-Sword X. Heck, I'm still learning how to find what I want in the software itself! Hahahaha...

 

Take care and have a great day now! Always glad to hear from you and thank you for your time...
