This is an on-going unofficial beta install.

This is being done solely on my responsibilty and outside the normal Matrix process. I still don't have any info on WHEN patch 6 will be made official, but this would be helpful step to ensure that there are not runtime issues with the code when it is.

PLEASE DON'T USE THIS EXE FOR YOUR REAL ON-GOING GAMES AT THE MOMENT PENDING MY FINDINGS ON HOW SUITABLE THE NEW EXE IS.

Background:
Last month my development PC had a meltdown while I was working on changes since the last released build (02).
As a result, I had to rebuild the dev environment on a new PC. The new PC had a newer O/S than my old one plus additional Window patches installed.

The build works fine on my PC, but then it is also the one that created it.
A few beta testers have tried the new EXE but I am not sure as to how many actually have tried it on various PC combinations.

As a result, I need to be 100% convinced that the new code will run on existing installs of AE.

I have created an installer that will install the new EXE and DLL (for build 03) onto your PC in a new directory called Beta2. A shortcut, like the original Beta one, will be created on the desktop referencing the new directory.

I would appreciate it if some of you could try this out on your various O/S and CPUs to ensure that ongoing code will be executable.
Load up a save and play a few turns. Let me know if you have any issues with it.
Also, try using tracker to see if the DLL still works.

Again, my warning:
PLEASE DON'T USE THIS EXE FOR YOUR REAL ON-GOING GAMES AT THE MOMENT PENDING MY FINDINGS ON HOW SUITABLE THE NEW EXE IS.

Here is a list of the additional changes since 1108c (build 2)

[1108c+]
Fixed Rebuilt LCUs tended to use wrong PP cost on the first display, esp component units.

Fixed 'buy-for-supply' ships remained at 1 day delay

Fixed Error in initial settings of manpower at start of scenario [MEM]

[1108k8]

Added After 6 months, an expired pooled device (sqd or engineer type) will slowly convert to the upgraded version; if japan, obsolete devices back to the raw materials [MEM]
Added Auto-conversion is option in the in-game preferences. New games assume it is ON [MEM]
(PBEM assumes on for both players - Japanese player can turn it off/on so it applies for synchronisation.)

Changed the 'turret hit' to show what weapon mount it is [MEM]
Fixed Moonlight and Turn were mixed together on top line of some screens [MEM]

(was causing some strange occurances)

[1108m8]
Fixed Transfer carrier trained status when recombining split groups [MEM]
Fixed Ship due upgrade count could have a number but nothing in due lists. Upgrade ship was under repair [MEM]

One of the new features surprised me when I first thought that the 2/1 AIF Pioneer had 181 AIF infantry. Took me a little time for my old eyes to register it was 18!
Again thanks for all the hard work.

I ran four turns of an old testbed game I used for the Emergency Reinforcements. H-to-H, all aircraft grounded, nothing at sea except the IJN invasion Tf. I set every ship, merchant and naval, in SF and Colombo and Osaka (hundreds) to Auto-Convoy "Yes", and turned on every base for Auto-convoy "Yes" for both sides.

Over four turns the AI formed and deployed auto-convoy TFs every turn at all three bases. Both supplies and fuel. I saw no evidence of any attempt to form outbound AC TFs loaded with either Resources or Oil. I didn't run long enough to see if there would be an attempt to load un-ordered Resources or Oil at the destination bases, but for four turns the auto-convoy system worked as designed, and as it used to. If I see any odd destination behavior I'll let you know.

I'm running Windows XP SP3 on a 7-YO, single-core Pentium w/ 2 gigs of RAM. I told the load screens to enable to new beta exec and to make the DB changes from the last official patch to this old save.

Hello

1.) I ran a couple turns, seems ok

Running: AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core
Processor BE-2350
2.10 Ghz, 1.00 GB RAM

Windows XP, SP 3


2.) I am not sure if this is a bug, but I think not logical:

Problem:
Variant A:
1.) Go to No. 146 RAF in Calcutta
2.) Hit the request veteran button
3.) Select from the "any pool" and select the pilot from the No.242 RAF and the No. 146 get him.

Variant B:
1.) Go to No. 146 RAF in Calcutta
2.) Hit the request veteran button
3.) Select from the "group pool" and select the pilots from the No.242 RAF and the No. 146 does NOT get the pilot. Instead the pilot go the the fighter pool...but i requested for the No. 146...

Short: Both variants requests a pilot for No. 146 Sqn. When you took variant A you get one and if you take variant B you don’t.

One of the new features surprised me when I first thought that the 2/1 AIF Pioneer had 181 AIF infantry. Took me a little time for my old eyes to register it was 18!
Again thanks for all the hard work.









You'r right!
I didn't even notice it.
I might see if can use some other symbol to amke it more obvious.

Hello

1.) I ran a couple turns, seems ok

Running: AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core
Processor BE-2350
2.10 Ghz, 1.00 GB RAM

Windows XP, SP 3


2.) I am not sure if this is a bug, but I think not logical:

Problem:
Variant A:
1.) Go to No. 146 RAF in Calcutta
2.) Hit the request veteran button
3.) Select from the "any pool" and select the pilot from the No.242 RAF and the No. 146 get him.

Variant B:
1.) Go to No. 146 RAF in Calcutta
2.) Hit the request veteran button
3.) Select from the "group pool" and select the pilots from the No.242 RAF and the No. 146 does NOT get the pilot. Instead the pilot go the the fighter pool...but i requested for the No. 146...

Short: Both variants requests a pilot for No. 146 Sqn. When you took variant A you get one and if you take variant B you don’t.

I'll have a look. More likely some difference in how code is doing the selection rather a binary EXE error.
Thanks

I think what I am trying to do is to allow you to transfer pilots between groups (any filter) and allowing you to transfer pilots to the Reserve (when group filter on).

In other places, I have used the right/left click to make the distinction.
This screen might have been set up before I went with the r/l-click.
I'll see if I can make it work same way so outcome is same regardless.

Some other color of "!" can make it more obvious IMHO

Coloring a single character may not give enough contrast.

Excellent !!!!
Was a bit worried about the DLL translating saves for Tracker after the Windows patch last year (IIRC) that broke it.

You are correct in that it does not seem logical; why bend the pool filter to act differently when it really is dependent on the pilot where he should go.

What about inserting a space before the special character to separate it from the number and make it more obvious...

When viewing the search arcs, it seems that if the arc ends on 0 degrees in a clockwise direction (eg 330 to 0), it appears in the old colour scheme.  All other arcs appear in the new colour scheme.

There is a space (or two) there.

Running fine.
Blue looks good.


Just a note though.

On your revised TO&E symbols.
Should look like this.

(+) means overstrength.
(-) means understrength.


The way you have it set up.

(+) means needs.
(-) means too many.
Confusing to recognize at a glance.
