You mean starting the tracker without the map? Use WitPTrackerNoMap.bat for that.

It looks like 7-10 is the latest, though. Hope they fix the leak quickly.

version 7-11 is now available

i had forgot that java 6 was needed and uninstalled it - so tracker no longer works

i didn't understand the tech talk on the previous page but assume i will need to reinstall (the unsafe) version 6 to get things to work again?

will tracker eventually work with java 7 or is this a complete no no?

thanks

The way that you install it, Java 7 will be the default. Java 6 will be called when you specifically set up a .bat file that calls it. Mine, for example, is

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

Notice how it specifies Java 6. Anything else on my system that I allow to run Java runs Java 7.

You will definitely need to edit the batch file to point to the correct .exe. witpqs has provided a great example. I know I had to change which .exe my batch file pointed to on my laptop because of a 32-bit vs. 64-bit difference, but I forget what that looks like so can't provide that example at the moment.

thanks for the comments

was ok running it previously (same bat file as witpqs) - was more concerned about the security aspects of java 6 and assume that virus could call it if its on your system even if Java7 was the default

if i reinstall Java6 do you know if that then becomes the default java version (on the basis it was the last version installed) or will Java 7 always be the default?

thanks

You can always check your default java install by going here http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

Or change your environment variables in system properties so that the path is explicit to where java home is.

E.g.
JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_23 [OR the exact JDK path where java is installed]
PATH=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;

[edit] You can also look under the Java control panel and see "User" and "System" settings. And change them here too.

The link that Damian provided is one that you should bookmark and keep.

Second, you can install Java 6 and then install Java 7. Java 7 should then be the default, just check it with that link.

Many browsers are now better about confining access to plug-ins like Java. I use Chrome, and by default Chrome will not run Java for a web page. Instead, it will ask you if you want to run Java for that site, and just this time or always? And IIRC access for a given web site is automatically shut off if you son't use it for a certaint period of time, after which Chrome will ask you again, just to be safer. This link to a page in Google's Chrome help describes how to manage plug-ins and what web sites you allow to run them http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en-GB&answer=142064

Last, just for those who don't realize it, Java and Javascript are two different things. The naming coincidence is unfortunate, but they have nothing to do with each other. If you wish to manage Javascript you have to do that through other settings (it's not even a plug-in, support is just built in to Chrome and other browsers). Many, many web sites run Javascript and it does not have the same security issues as Java. Lest I be misunderstood, any software can have security issues, they are just two different things done two different ways.

Multiple games stored under the one installation - 1/18/2013 2:20:20 PM   
michaelm

My current set-up to handle multiple games under tracker:
I have tracker installed in one directory ("C:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition\tools\WitPTracker AE Release 1.9.2").
I want to keep several games going under tracker.
Rather than install multiple copies of the code, I have a better method that allows me to keep the one install but keep the individual games separate. This also allows me to make updates to Tracker itself in only one place.
--
1. Under the install directory, create a game directory (called TestCP in my case).
2. You copy witptracker.properties and WitPTracker.bat to the directory.
3. You edit the properties file with "SaveMode=[2]" so that tracker will read game files from directory.
4. You edit the tracker BAT file so that it looks like
java -Xms512m -Xmx640m -Djava.library.path=".." -jar "..\WitPTracker.jar". The '-Djava.library.path=".."' tells java to look in the upper directory above "TestCP" for the pwsdll.dll file.
'"..\WitPTracker.jar"' tells java to look in the upper directory for the program file.
5. Copy the save for your game to this directory.
6. Run the tracker BAT file from this game directory and load the turn as required.
To add other games, create a directory as in (1), and copy the witptracker.properties and WitPTracker.bat from one game directory to another. The BAT is set up to just use the upper directory without any absolute paths. Then add the first save, edit the local properties, and run the bat file to start a new DB.

I can't get this to work. I'm using Java 1.6.38 32 bit on a windows 7 64 bit system. My laptop has the same setup but it works on it.

I get an error that says

'java' is not recognized as an internal or external commans, operable program or batch file.

Can someone help please?

EDIT: FIXED

but now combat reporter doesn't work. Sigh

Try replacing Java with "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe"
in both of the bat files.

How exactly do you change the bat files? Even though I got this working I am having trouble with Combat Reporter and some of the suggestions were changing the bat files.

Never says how though.
Thanks

Simple enough. I'm glad that I got tracker working. I only wish I could get combat reporter working also. I do like the way that program sends information, map oriented.

Checking out Tracker now to try to get a feel for it.

Thanks again

Comabt reporter will work, if you have tracker working but needs some changes to the batch file. Not really the right thread for combat reporter, but I can help if you PM me... (prob tomorrow as I'm about to head out to work)

Thanks for the offer. Got it working.

A question though if you, or anyone else, can answer.

How best to save files to be read in Tracker?

I usually take the autosave files and copy them into the tracker directory so it can be read, this way I make sure no wrong file is used also the autosave files stay in the WitP directory in case you need them again for making a new database.

I must be missing something in this. Tracker will not recognize any of my .psw files and every time I hit the Read Turn it says turn 2 is already loaded.

What am I doing wrong here. I can't seem to figure out the process from saving my games to using them in Tracker.


Any help is appreciated. Seems like it should be simple really. I see that Combat Reporter automatically arranges my turns somehow. Does Tracker do this also? If so how?

Can someone explain the process from ending a turn to loading it and subsequent turns in Tracker?

Thanks again

So I didn't think I'd have trouble transferring my Tracker and save file to my desktop from my laptop, however...I am. Tracker wouldn't load the next turn, it just hung on "Location Info". It's early in the game (Feb 1942), so I decided to just delete the database and reload it.

Now I run the .bat and get:

M:\WITP Ironman Japan\Tracker>java -Xms384m -Xmx784m -jar "witptracker.jar"
Initializing WitP Tracker AE database.
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 2342
        at witptracker.SaveFileReader.ReadLocationInfo(SaveFileReader.java:1739)

        at witptracker.SaveFileReader.<init>(SaveFileReader.java:183)
        at witptracker.Main.main(Main.java:139)

M:\WITP Ironman Japan\Tracker>pause
Press any key to continue . . .


Is it a problem with the save file or something? This is pretty much a fresh tracker...

Just a guess, is it maybe pointing to the wrong save file location?

i'm no expert but i think you need to install 32 bit java6 and then have a tracker bat file that looks something like this:

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

works for me on 64 bit win 7

No, it will begin reading the turn just fine and then just stop at Location Info (which matches what's shown in the command output). I'm stumped. The error messages were actually longer before I deleted the DB... when I get home from work this evening I will try to remember to restore the DB files and post the longer error messages.
