I seem to be stuffed. Fortunately Java 6.18 works fine with the latest witptracker. I deleted 6.18 and tried to reinstall jre 6.17 but got a 2753 regutils.dll error. Tried all sorts of update options but it isn't supported now that 6.18 is out so... Any suggestions till a new witpstaff compatible with java 6.18 comes out?

Did a google search on this 2753 regutils.dll error and there seems to be many ppl in your boat regarding uninstalling Java. I'd be searching the Java forums before downloading any registry checkers though ...

Often I find reinstalling a program (even if you already have it) aka 6.18 and then try again to uninstall sometimes works well ...

Reinstall didn't work but with 6.18 still installed I then installed 6.17 successfully. I then uninstalled 6.18. Witpstaff then works though it cannot load saves since the 1097 install(no problem with previous saves). I'll try it with a new game.

For those with a bit of PC savvy, you can download the JAVA JRE for u17 (jre-6u17-windows-i586.exe from SUN Java) and install it as a separate installation by selecting "Change Destination Folder" in the lower left of the Java install screen.
Click 'Install' and continue with the installation and it will install this version of JAVA in C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_17 on your PC.

Then go to the Witpstaff directory in AE and edit the file 'witpStaff.bat' and change the java line to:
C:\"Program Files"\Java\jre1.6.0_17\bin\java -Djava.library.path=. -jar witpdecoder2.jar
and save it. The ""s are needed because of the space between Program and Files.

Clicking on this will now run with java version 17 and you wont get the 'DATE' error.

Any programs that use JAVA will still work with the latest version (18).

One thing that would be very handy would be a report that lists what convoys are bound to/from any given base.  I think this would simplify getting logistics set up more efficiently.

Just my $.02,

You're right and I'm wrong.

Applying Patch 08 for WitpStaff DOES fix the problem.
My apologies.

You need to check your Java version. The latest version 18 is not compatible, version 17 is ...
Download the old version and use Michaels advice a few posts above yours ... or uninstall 18 and reinstall v.17

Hi-I have not used WitpStaff up to now, but would like to know more about it. So, some questions-
1. Where do you find this? Is this another name for the AE editor? If not how do you access it?
2.Is there an AAR or some other reading I can do rather than go through all the posts? That will give me the basics to try and get started?
3. It appears this is a tool for collecting data from game play.Correct? Or, if not, what is it?
4. In the first post there are instructions to do this and that and the other. At this time, I don't feel confident I can execute all of the steps. Is there a place for me to go to learn?

More questions later, after I know a bit(yes, I know how a little knowledge can be very harmfull).

Thanks, Hugh Browne

Under the game directory, there is one called 'tools'.

Look in there..

There is some basic information in a pdf.

michaelm-Hi, I'm sorry to be so dumb, but what is the "game directory" and where is it? Is it the file you get if you go to Start, then Programs and open the AE folder? There is a File called WITP AE Staff.

Also, where is the pdf you mentioned?

Thanks, HB

Should be in this folder, go directly to it and you'll see "witpStaff-docs.pdf"

c:\Matrix Games\War In The Pacific Admiral's Edition\tools\witpstaff

Suggestion, in my ignorance it shouldn't be too hard to do:

Allow players to alter the number of days per turn cycle (PBEM)

I'm a nube, so consider the source.

But, since this post is the "MUST READ FIRST" one, I would need some definitions to understand it.

What is a "WitPStaff"?

I do understand that many or most folks using these forums have no need to start at the beginning.
But in order to get new 'blood' into any game it seems some consideration for the newness aspect may be necessary.
My apologies, in advance.
If there is a glossary for folks like me, it would save everyone much time.

WitpStaff is a management tool which reads the save file and primarily displays economic data as well as some other goodies. It is a 3rd Party tool, so matrix doesn't directly support it.

There is a "witpStaff-docs.pdf" in c:\Matrix Games\War In The Pacific Admiral's Edition\tools\witpstaff
which will tell you more.

Good luck and make sure to upgrade to the latest Staff version and have Java V17 not 18.
