Mike -

Thanks. We look forward to your bug reports.

The file reading is a lot faster because of the new way we get the AE data (via the DLL). The start-up from the database files is as slow as it always was because I still need to look into optimizing that.

Stugots -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0.1 Available (9/16/2009 8:34:30 PM)

Thanks for fast reply Floyd. Im running it from the jar but when i first intialized db i ran the batch file. How do i go about increasing the memory?




floydg -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0.1 Available (9/16/2009 8:47:21 PM)

Plan A: run it from the batch file (this is the easier of the methods and I don't see any reason not to)

Plan B: set the JVM properties to match what the values in the batch file are (not sure exactly how to do that, but that's what Google is for...)

Floyd




Stugots -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0.1 Available (9/16/2009 9:01:23 PM)

Well i loaded it from the batch and it read the new turn. Guess i was in the habit of running it from the jar in the old witp. I didnt increase the memory. Although i will have to search how to do this as it may be an issue some day.

Thanks again Floyd. Great work on this. Game wouldnt be the same without these tools.

From USS America's comments, can we assume that AE Tracker now works with the small scenarios such as Guadalcanal and The Thousand Mile War? I thought that we were originally told that it only works with the campaign scenarios............

There were a few device errors in the small scenarios that caused WitPTracker to fail. I think I blocked the failures, so it should work. Let us know if you see any issues and we'll fix them. Don't want to leave anyone out!! [;)]

Ok, Floyd, here's the first one. Just a nit, really, with the multi-turn load. It gets confused about the turn order if there are single digit turn numbers present. It loaded turn 1 when I initialized tracker with the scenario. Then, I tried to multi load turns 2 - 15. It loaded 10-15 first, then went back and loaded 2-9. I'm sure if I had turns in the 20's, it would have loaded all of them before moving onto 3-9. To work around it, I dumped my db, reinitialized with turn 1, then multi loaded just turns 2-9. After them, I multi loaded turns 10-15 and all is well. [8D]




Nomad -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0.1 Available (9/16/2009 11:11:40 PM)

When I so a multi turn load I number the first ones with 01,02,03, etc. Then they load right. It is doing an ASCII sort and that is the way you have to do that.




floydg -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0.1 Available (9/17/2009 12:34:25 AM)

Drat. Looks like I need to check on that one...

Edit: looks like I process the turns in the order they appear in the list, not by turn number... [:(]

Glad to hear you got it to work.




StoneAge -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0.1 Available (9/17/2009 12:45:37 AM)

Great product boys.

One request on the minefields list page can we have a column of how many ACM's are in each port.

and a note at the top of the page "Each ACM can protect (i.e. service and repair) 150 mines from decay."

Thanks for chiming in StoneAge, seems like a good request to me, and that would probably extend for ship repair, support craft too ...

edit: The ascii search for savefiles has always been that way, and I had assumed ppl were numbering .01,.02 or .001, 002 etc

The ASCII sort issue should be simple to solve. If you don't use the leading zero method, you'll see the problem (I tested with "classic" WitPTracker).

For the ACM, I see they need to be disbanded to do their magic, but any rule about their damage levels to function?

I think that only applies to repair support craft, but I'll find out with some good ol' testing and book learnin'...

Yeah, that book learnin' thing is over-rated.

"ACMs must be disbanded into a base to protect mines there – ACMs will not protect mines while in a task force at the base."

right from that book learning place[:D]

I meant if the damage level of the ACM affects whether it can tend mines or not.
I'm working on this now, though...

"problem with the save game file..."

neither this tool or witp stuff run now...grumpf.

back to pen & paper

Were you loading a turn at the same time?

Well Oliver, it would be nice if you emailed us your save file (witptracker@gmail.com) so that the problem doesn't occur in the future, or maybe if the save file has become unworkable ... posted to the tech section for scrutiny.
Saying it doesn't work, gives us and you NO hope of fixing the problem!

Hey


I have a Incident I want to ask about..



When I start Tracker first time everything is perfect and fine, I then open it day after and scelect "Read Turn" and it then crash and refuse to re-open.
I then need to kill the db's and then start it over agian to read the day's round.

I can open it today, and then open it agian tomorrow np, but if I then scelect "read turn" to Ie. read the next turn then it crash.. and I must kill db's to get back in...

This is most probably a memory issue You need to be sure the JVM is getting enough memory ... (I know you don't use the batch file), so you need to set the JVM properties to match what the values in the batch file are (not sure exactly how to do that, but that's what Google is for...) ... and if I have time I'll look into it for you.

--Damian--




Paul,
this is one way to increase the JVM settings http://bpv.basics-usa.com/JVMMemory.htm ... please use the settings we have in the batch file and let me know how this works ...

morphin -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0 (9/18/2009 9:04:27 AM)

Hi

I have a note for AC/Engine production:
Your TBO.YTA for new AC is correct. That is the total of new AC you get. But often you don't have to produce this amount of AC. You often get ReadyCraft, DamagedCraft and ReserveCraft for free. So for production reason you have to subract this free AC

Yeah Morphin, I'll have to check that out with some testing ... thanks for the heads up [;)]

Agreed -- 100% of the crashes I was seeing were related to the JVM memory. Is there a reason why you're not using the batch file?




Swenslim -> RE: WitPTracker AE Release 1.0 (9/18/2009 1:53:27 PM)

Tracker dont works. Writes that directory on disk E wasnt  ffound (actually game is on disk D) and that save file error.

Maybe English is or isn't your first language, but neither Floyd or I are mind readers, nor can we work out what is wrong with messages like this ... now I may be overreacting but I think I'm a fairly patient guy ... give some details, pictures, sequence etc or you are wasting a post and our time.

Check your properties file and see where it is pointed ...

WHAT SAVE FILE ERROR ? Post a dos screen shot ... pls.

I'm going out now ... maybe after a drink I'll calm down
