A little update. Java 7 is a bust for reasons beyond me. I went and installed Java 6 in addition to Java 7. I verified that my browser is running Java 7 (good). I modified my Tracker .bat file to this:
quote:


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java" -Xms512m -Xmx768m -jar "WitPTracker.jar" nomap
pause


Now Tracker is working again, (presumably) using Java 6.

Yes early adopters get burnt

Still - I just loaded 3 turns with my Java7 build and no probs... Let me investigate further. I'll uninstall Java 6 from my Win7 build and install 7 - Then check what is going on.

Thanks for helping witpqs

[edit] Okay looks like the problem is Win7 compared to XP. On my XP build Java 7 seems to work on Win7 it doesn't


I will continue to investigate and as witpqs has stated - having both installed is an option or just keep with Java 6_35 until they get it right or we do ...

[edit2]Okay looks like our code is okay, but how we load & read the pwsdll.dll (hence savefile) is silently erroring. (Eclipse doesn't throw an error.) So I'll have to talk with Floyd and MichaelM about this ... Java 6 guys.

Hey - I just wanted to thank everyone for the support you are providing and your willingness to try and get this to work with Win7 plus Java 7x.

TTFN,

Mike

Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) for Java. Like netbeans (another IDE), it allows programmers to code in Java or C/C++ and compile their code. [Edit] Actually forgot to say that with the Pydev plug-in it can be used for Python programming too.

Actually, my message was more for Floyd & maybe I shouldn't have posted, but I thought clarification was good for all. Do you use an IDE for your Python inspired Intel Monkey? I've had a quick look at it - very nice effort mate!

At the moment I'm simply using IDLE, the editor, et al that comes with Python. I use emacs for various text stuff, but I found it slightly annoying for Python and IDLE's color coding was more convenient than emacs'. I am sure that I'll switch to a better environment further along and certainly when I pull in other languages. I should mention that I have an affinity for free (& preferably open source) tools.



Thanks for the compliment! I've been both dusting off my brain and learning new things as I go along, which is the ulterior motive. I'll be fleshing out phase 1 shortly and then making it nicer with a DB to allow faster per turn loads (no more reading everything every time) and advanced querying, which is the big goal. In that vein I'm continually cleaning up the code as I go along. And, of course, continually going through the Python docs as the laying of new foundation is allowing me to pick up new stuff on second and third passes. They've really done quite a good job with Python. BTW I loaded Python 3.3 this past weekend.

Help needed. I had my computer lose power when the electricity went off while I had Tracker open. Now, it takes 25 minutes to open the program when it used to take 10 minutes. Was this caused by the crash? Is there any hope to fix this short of starting over from the oldest save I have and re-loading?

Probably not - how is the rest of the computer os running ? Did it fry any components ?
Specifically, what memory settings are you using for Tracker?
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -Xms512m -Xmx640m -jar "WitPTracker.jar"

Two things.

I have a question concerning the "Industry" screen, when "Supply&Fuel" tab is selected. There is the "Supply Req." column. Is this daily/weekly/biweekly or monthly requirement? For example, at start, Allied China has around 115,000 supplies stockpiled, produces around 4500 supply daily and has supply requirement of 35,000.

Second, is there a way to make Tracker's tooltips display for a longer time? Or better, to make them stay until I move my mouse?

Supply Req. is just adding all the base supply req. which you can see if you click a base in the game (which is a monthly figure; changes according to lcu use, combat etc but doesn't look at expansion etc). THe manual explains this ...

Tooltips can be displayed longer - but I hvae to go back through a reprogramme them.

I don't get it. What about LCUs outside bases? Is their supply requirement lumped into the number in the "Supply Req." column? In China, I have 91 big infantry corps with an average supply reguirement of 500-600 points, which amounts to 45,000 supply points. I should see bigger numbers in the column. How do I know what is my total supply requirement for all bases + all LCUs/airgroups in China?

I believe that the supply req is just what Damian said - it is all the "Sup Req" values of the bases in a given defined region totaled up. I don't think LCU's that aren't in bases are added into the calculation. Should they be? Maybe, but I'm not sure if it is all that easy to gather that data.

Got a question on PPs LCU production chart.

I'm scratching my head trying to work out the significance of the 'Units Accumulative Pol Pts' in relationship to the 'Accumulative Pol Pts'. I think I'm missing something.

First one is arriving units PP's cost and the second is just PP's accumulating at the scenario rate. No relation.

How can i install an older version of Java and how do i uninstall it and install an older version of Java and where can i find an older version?

Here is what I did that worked.

Unless they released new ones in the last two days, the latest versions are 7.7 and 6.35. Go to the Java site and download those two versions. Make sure they are the 32-bit versions.

There are other ways to do this, but for clarity, this is what I recommend.

1) Uninstall the version of Java that you have running now.

2) Install Java v6.35 that you just downloaded.

3) Install Java v7.7 that you just downloaded.

4) Edit the .bat file that you use to run Tracker. I personally use the 'nomap' version, but whatever options you use, the part in red is the change that is needed. Note that if your Windows system is different you might have to find where are the Java 6 files, but this is where they are on my system.
quote:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java" -Xms512m -Xmx768m -jar "WitPTracker.jar" nomap
pause


5) Next, make certain that Java 7 is what runs when you don't specifically look for Java 6.
Look at this page in your browser:
http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp
That page will test Java as your browser uses it. Your browser might give a security question asking if you want to allow that page to run Java.


As I said there are other ways to do this, but the "if this is the case then do that" instructions would be complicated.

Yes I understand that but I don't understand the significance of the arriving units PPs cost. Why do I need to know that?

You don't need to remove it.
Edit the 'witptracker.bat' in the Tracker directory and add the location of java 6 to the front of the 'java'.
Attached is my BAT file which calls Java 6 (i have java 7 also installed)
quote:


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java" -Xms512m -Xmx640m -jar "WitPTracker.jar"
pause

Change the path to where java 6 is installed

Are you sure you typed in the path correctly as by default this is where Java will be intalled.

If you have and you did not change the install destination for Java then Java is not installed. You can check by going into the folder structure of the C drive following the path michaelm gave you.

I don't think 6 is installed correctly. I suggest deleting all Java from the machine and then reinstall just 6 from scratch along with any patches for it. Once that's working intall 7 as well.
