Yeah Thanks so much, Really nice of you to take the time and help people like this. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
Your example will help me out quite a bit. I can see now that I had the syntax totally wrong.
The last expression you listed returned the exact same value to me. I am going to download the new C2 beta and look at your example as soon as I finish this clients application.
Luckily I have a workaround for my task of launching Steam or any other game. I will simply have the user drag and drop the shortcuts onto the node-webkit window, and the application will make a copy of the shortcut in a scratch folder in the users /home or %Documents% folder.
The kids are going to want to add custom images anyway for their icons, box art, and banners. There is no need for me to extract the icon or the Steam URL. I just thought it would look sharp if there was an icon or something in the box art placeholder right when they dragged and dropped the URL.
As soon as I have some more time to learn the in's and outs of RegEx I will offer them a free update.
This looks like a really powerful feature. I have always wondered how people made card and puzzle games.
It will make me a better Linux and Unix administrator too. I have put off learning GREP and Emacs for way too long.
Thanks again for leading me in the right direction DOTOIT, This is going to answer some life-long questions about non-shooter games.
