Settings Manager - user manual

5. Export settings

Export of iStripper settings takes place in five steps:

  • Selection of the range of settings to be exported
  • Selection of the name for the exported settings
  • Confirmation of the operation
  • Selection of description for exported settings (optional)
  • Save exported settings as default (optional)

All sets of exported settings are saved in a common folder named settings. You can find it in the installation folder of the Settings Manager program. Each exported set of settings is saved in a separate subfolder whose name is selected by the user in the export process.

Most iStripper settings are stored in the Windows registry. Exporting settings consists in extracting only those keys and values that are responsible for the iStripper settings. Other keys and values (including user-related identifiers) are not read. The exported settings are saved to a file with the .reg extension.

If the user has a list of music tracks, it can also be exported. In this case, this is done by copying the .mpl file.

To start exporting iStripper settings, select the first option in the main menu:

[1] Export settings

Press [1] on the keyboard and confirm with [Enter].

5.1. Select the range of settings

In the first step, the program will ask you to choose the range of settings to export. You can choose one of two ranges: basic settings and all settings (everything).

The basic settings include the settings available in the Settings tab (gear icon in the upper right corner of the iStripper window). It does not matter if the Advanced Settings option is enabled or not. All options available in this tab, even those hidden, will be exported.

All settings (everything) in addition to the basic settings also include:

  • settings available in the Girls Store tab - view, sort and filter settings,
  • settings available in the My collection tab - view, sort and filter settings,
  • the state of activation/deactivation switch of the iStripper program,
  • the state of the Master sound switch,
  • settings in the Music tab - view settings, active songs,
  • settings in the Full screen tab - view settings, active scenes,
  • resolution of bonus videos,
  • settings responsible for managing the amount of disk space for demo files.

Select the range of settings you want to export by pressing the [1] key (Export basic settings) or [2] (Export everything), then accept with the [Enter] key.

The program will go to the next step.

5.2. Select the name for exported settings

Each set of settings is saved in a separate directory. The user can choose the name of the directory, which is also the name of the exported set of settings. The exported set of settings will be identified by this name.

When providing the name, remember to use only letters (small and big) and numbers if possible. The range of special characters is very limited. Some special characters can not be used in file and directory names, as they may work incorrectly in other applications. In addition, the use of some special characters may cause Settings Manager to stop working. The following is a list of acceptable and unacceptable special characters.

Acceptable special characters:

;semicolon$dollar sign
.dot (only in combination with other letters, numbers and characters; never as a single character)+plus
=equal sign
,coma( )round brackets (left and right)
'apostrophe[ ]square brackets (left and right)
~tilde{ }curly brackets (left and right)

Characters that must not be used due to Windows limitations:

/slash?question mark
\backslash"quotation mark
*asterisk< >less than/greater than

Characters that must not be used due to the limitations of the Settings Manager program:

!exclamation mark^caret

After entering the name, confirm it with the [Enter] key. You will go to the next step.

5.3. Confirm operation

The program will display a summary showing the selected range of settings and their name. You can still change these options by going back with the [B] key. If you don't want to change anything, accept your choice. Select [1] (Export now) and press [Enter].

If the program detects that there is already a set of settings with the name you choose, it will inform you and ask you if you want to overwrite the existing set:

Select [Y] (Yes) to overwrite existing settings, or [N] (No) to select a different name. Confirm the selection with the [Enter] key.

After confirming the export operation, the saving of the selected range of settings will start. They will be saved in files with the .reg and .mpl extension in the following directory:

X:/install_path/Settings Manager for iS/settings/settings_name

where X is the drive letter, install_path is the path to the folder where Settings Manager is installed, and settings_name is the name you chose for the exported settings.

After the export is completed, the program will go to the next step.

5.4. Provide description

In this step, the program will ask for a description of the exported settings. The description can be useful for easier identification of a set of settings, which can be especially important when you have many exported sets. The description is saved in the .txt file along with the settings (in the same folder).

The same restrictions apply to special characters as for the name of the settings (described in section 2. Select the name for exported settings). Additionally, please remember that the description should not exceed 1000 characters. This is a restriction resulting from the technology in which Settings Manager was created. In general, the best description is a short description (in one sentence).

If you don't want to provide description, simply press [Enter]. Settings Manager will go to the last step.

INFO: You don't need to enter the creation date in the description. The date and time is automatically saved by the program.

5.5. Save as default

Settings Manager can save the exported settings as default settings for iStripper. In this process, a special shortcut to the iStripper program is created on the desktop. With its help you will launch the iStripper program with the default settings loaded - your default settings. If you have a standard shortcut to iStripper on your desktop, don't be afraid - it will be intact.

If you want to use the exported settings as default in the future, select [Y] (Yes), otherwise select [N] (No). Confirm the selection with the [Enter] key.

If you are not sure whether you want to use these settings as default, just select [N] (No). The default settings can be selected later, using the appropriate option in the Settings Manager main menu (its description can be found in the further part of the manual).

WARNING: Remember that launching iStripper with a special shortcut will overwrite its current settings. Before you use a special shortcut, consider exporting the current iStripper settings.

5.6. Done

The export process has been completed. You'll see a message with the path to the directory where you can find your settings.

Return to the main menu by pressing the [B] (Back) key or close manager by pressing the [Q] (Quit) key. As always, confirm the selection with the [Enter] key.
