Remember that feature I added to Sort Addons, that let you type a letter key to jump to the next addon in the list whose name starts with that letter? Well, another thing I have a lot of is characters, :wink: so it would be useful to have that functionality in the Load Game dialog as well. I briefly considered creating a new addon for this, but with the longstanding too-many-addons bug, I figured it'd be better to incorporate it into an existing boot module addon; Load Games with Long Names is already playing around in that area, so I added that to its v1.0.1 release.

In the process, though, I discovered an interesting wrinkle. As I'm sure you can imagine, :wink: I have roguelike keybindings setup. I also have two characters whose name starts with K, but the skip-ahead kept getting stuck on the first — because the dialog first treats the 'k' as a move-up command, moving the selection to the previous character, and then jumps ahead to the "next" character that starts with K (ie. the one I was just on :roll:). I found a fix for that, but Sort Addons had the same problem, so I'm pushing out v1.0.3 of Sort Addons with that fix added.

Thought of another feature for ZOmnibus Check: since we're already checking addons' .requires_addons{} to add DLC icons, we can also check whether those required addons are actually enabled, and add a reminder to any addons that require them if they aren't:

And this doesn't just cover DLCs, but any required addons — for instance, my own Spider Bikini addon requires shad3's Weaver Class addon:

That's all going out as v1.0.4.

Small bugfix to the preceding, going out as v1.0.5: if an addon requires other addons, we have to check whether those required addons are actually installed, not just whether they're enabled (not just because if they're not installed, we don't have a name for them):

We Apologize for the Error.™ :wink:
