How does the "jump to location" procedure work?
I ask because at the moment I get a lot messages over Alor Star but the Combat Report always jumps to Alor(north of Timor).

I've recently started using a new computer and I have problems getting the combat reporter to run on this one. The problem seems to be with Java as I get the message (roughly translated from Dutch)
"Java was not recognized as internal or external task, program or batch-file" after which it ends. I've had similar problems getting WITP Tracker to work, but these were solved after I got a correct version of Java (v.6 update 21, running windows 7). Any idea what could fix this problem ? The previous computer ran windows XP and had several older versions of Java installed as well.


If you've installed java, the problem is a java pathing problem that can be fixed in a number of ways ...
1. Change the batch to point to java (you'll need to check where it's installed ... this is for 64 bit OS
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -splash:UV1024.jpg -Xmx1024m -jar combatreport.jar
pause





Damien -

I upgraded my computer (Win 7 on an i7) and was having no success running Combat Reporter. Your above suggestion worked like a charm - I am most grateful.

bretg80 - Combat Reporter is absolutely outstanding - not only important to planning a response to last turns activity, but significantly reduces the time needed to do so.

Thank You Sir!

Mac

I loaded the locations from the tracker tool and sometimes what shows up in the reports vs the tracker tool are different and the jump procedure can't find it. It's probably a database error I need to fix. Also, I'll look at putting the hex locations so you can find things if the jump doesn't work.

Thanks for the feedback.

New version of Combat Reporter uploaded. Hover over mouse indicates hex location. I tried to address BigDuke66's issue, but am not sure I fixed it. BigDuke66 if this update does not address your issue, if you could PM me a copy of the report file that you are having problems with that would help me diagnose it.

Please let me know if you find any other issues. See first posting in this thread for release notes.

Thanks but your right it didn't work.

Check out the Alor Star entry, it brings me to Alor not Alor Star.
I guess the problem is that a part of the name also fits to another base, I guess this can get really confusing when we see Port XY or San XY entries as there are a lot bases of with this name scheme.

BigDuke66, I have uploaded 1.04 and thanks to your report file I was able to track down at least 6 bugs (oh and I did fix your issue specifically). Some of which I had not identified in my own report files. There seems to be many permutations that I had not accounted for. I also found a bug in the new hex location display which I hope is correct now.

Let me know and when I hear back from you I'll announce the update to the community. You can use the same link to download it.

So far so good but it looks like the X hex coordinates on map for every unequal line(starting with 5, 7, 9, 11, etc.) are one hex off.
Saigon for example brings us to 60,71 what is correct but on your map Saigon is in 61,71, the lines one below & one above Saigon seem correct but the Saigon line is -1X.
I hope I explained it clear enough.

BigDuke66 is right. I see that too (Makin, Vinh as other examples). The icon is one hex off (to the left).
1.03 does not have that.

Hey guys,

1.041 is published and the hex placement and display error should be fixed. Let me know if you concur. Same location for download.

Thanks!
Could you take a look at the SigIntReport and there at the Radio transmissions?
Seems like he only jumps to locations were hex coordinates stand alone like:
Radio transmissions detected at 99,121.
But when you try:
Radio transmissions detected at Bayombong (80,75).
nothing happens, neither the name nor the hex coordinates make it jump.

Thanks for the feedback BigDuke, you found another parse bug and I have corrected it. Sorry, they keep throwing new challenges at me that I hadn't run into during my testing. Version 1.051 is avail with the fix.

BigDuke, 1.051 does not crash on my system.
Maybe a Java issue with your setup?

Just installed the latest version of this tool, running fine except the map simply says "loading Map.....' and never does.

Games patched up to latest official and latest beta - same happening with both - installed as two separate Combat Reporter installs one for each game.

Hey Roger,

Sounds like it is not pointing to the proper AE directory. Take a look at the preferences. Maybe the default overrode yours.

BigDuke,

I tried the file you sent me and it works fine on 1.051, no errors that I could see. All locations move to the correct spot on the map. Are you sure you have latest version. Please look at the info/about menu and double check.

You sent me sigint file, could it be a different file that is causing problems?

Bret

Sorry I should ahve been more precise, at the moment it's only the Radio messages in the SigInt file that make this problem and of those only the ones with name & coordinates in brackets like this Bayombong (80,75), the others with coordinates only work fine.
