Hi Mark,

Thanks again for all your work and continuing support. Your editor is looking GREAT! I haven't had time to really delve into it but I did find one minor glitch, nothing serious.

When I choose the Artillery filter and then choose the nation filter, for example, Free Poland, nothing appears in the unit list, which is fine because there is no artillery for them in the game. However, now when I choose Germany or some other nation with artillery, nothing appears on the list. This is correctable, if I go to filter "All" again I can start from scratch and choose Germany/Artillery and see all the German artillery units. But then if I go to Free Poland or one without artillery again, it will no longer list units for any country that I choose after that.

I am not able to reassign unit graphics with the editor.  Is there no feature to do so? Or I'm just doing something wrong?

Hi Jomni,

The editor will only change the name of the graphic file in the equipment database. You still need to copy the actual graphics file into the Unit/Graphics directory. If you are doing this and it still isn't working then it's a bug in the editor and I'll have a look at fixing it.

Cheers

Mark

Hi Gary,

I'll have a look at that tonight and post up a new version when I've fixed it.

Mark,

I changed the name of the graphics file for a particular unit, then saved. I reopened the config file and changes made weren't saved.

Thanks Jomni,

Must be a bug in the editor, I'm fixing a couple of bugs at the moment so I'll look at this as well.

Hi Jomni,

I've just tested it and I can't replicate the problem. If I change the image name and click "Commit Unit" the equipment database contains the changed image name. If I chancge the image name and click "Add Unit", the database also contains the changed image name.

Can you confirm that you are clicking the "Commit Unit" button after you change the graphic name.

Cheers

Mark

Anyway you can offer a version to work on net frame 2.

I can not get Net Frame 4 installed on windows XP due to bugs and no support.

Hi

Very very good work. I like it very much and think that it is highly usefull :)

I just have a some question
   Is it possible to modify existing units, rather then replacing them with new ones?
   Can you make the country's list be orderable by name (so one can toggle between ordere by flag no. / name)?
  
Best Regards

Ranta

PS I think I found a (minor) bug. If one selects a country without any units (e.g. national spain) and adds a unit (without changing the units flag - to national spain, e.g.) , an error message appears. (somethin with starting index = -1). If youw ant, I can take a screenshot...

Hi Ranta,

You can certainly modify existing units, just select the unit you wish to modify, change the values that you want changed and then click "commit unit", this overwrites the unit currently being viewed. If you make changes and then click "Add Unit", it will add a copy of the edited unit at the end of the database rather than change the unit.

Good idea about the country list, I'll look at adding this in the next version or so.

Thanks for the bug report about zero unit countries, I'll track that one down and implement a fix.

Cheers

Mark

Hi Mark.
You asked for feedback on 2.0.7.
  • Save settings: not sure if this is how it should work but when I open the editor it starts blank. When I click Open it goes to the pzeqp file I last used - I click Open and it opens. Then it browses to the Unit graphics and I open that. I assumed the editor would open with those files already opened. If this is the intended operation, that's fine, but I'm not sure. It's a huge improvement over previous versions in any case.
  • Suggestion: add a field that indicates what nation the flag numbers represent. e.g. 5 = Italy; 0 = Germany etc. This would not be editable.

Great work. Cheers.

Hi El Condoro,

Thanks for the feedback. The settings INI file should remember which equipment and graphics directory you last used. When you start the editor back up, it should automatially take you straight to the correct folders for each file so that you only need to click open (it won't automatically open them, you still ned to click open). If this isn't working for you, can you please let me know.

Good idea about the flag ID numbers!! I'll add in a little "helper" to map numbers to countries.

Cheers

Mark

Just to confirm the editor is working as intended: the folder is remembered and mapped when the editor is opened. It does not automatically open them, as you have said. Thanks.

Hi,

I've edited the BF109F to reflect the difference between the F-2 and F-4 models as well as created a Polikarpov I-15 from the I-16 as a test.
None of the planes appear as "buyable" in any scenario and the old BF109F and I-16 already in play on a given scenario have a strength of 1.

I guess I have the same date problem - using Spanish format.

BTW, can you delete any given equipment completely, may it be original or user-created?

Regarding the included scenario editor, is there a way to give every single unit it's own experience and strength setting?

Thanks


Hi,

Can you confirm which version of the editor you are using? Also, can you please email me a copy of your edited equipment file and I'll have a look.

Cheers

Mark


Sorry for the delay,
I probably was using one of your first versions as now with 2.0.6 i don't have this problem any more.
Eveything works great and I'm very thankful for your editor!

About the program remembering the equipment and the gfx folder, in my case it does with the first, but not with the second.
Cheers.

Hi Guys,

I wanted to send through a quick update. Work on the campaign editor continues and is much more work than I originally anticipated. Adding, deleting and removing entries is the easy part but factoring in the changes to all the other entries as a result is taking me a little longer to implement. Then making sure that it all fits back together and taking into account entries that are no longer workable is a little more difficult. For example, you might decide to delete a scenario path and if so, all other paths that point to the deleted path are now illegal entries, handling this is difficult from a design perspective.

I'm at the point at the moment where the adding, removing, deleting and inserting code is implemented and is working great. I'm now working on taking into account the effect of these actions and working out what entries need to be amended as a result of the changes. I'm getting there, it's just taking a little longer than originally thought so please bear with me.

Cheers

Mark

I love this editor. I have been playing with it about three days experimenting and making a wide range of different units thanks to the other new graphics download made available from Zombiehunter1977.

I am having some difficulty in making the traits command feature work. If I make a particular unit and take out the no purchase, green, bonus, etc. features, the new unit shows up with them anyway in my new equipment file.

Don't know what I am NOT doing right, but I am sure it is something simple.

Hi Zombiehunter! Yes, I am confirming the unit changes with the confirm button. It appears some of the units I have cloned with your graphics are showing up at the start of a campaign or battle since the bonus feature did not get removed. I will have to go back in to the equipment list and editor to change the clone unit I guess because the units I created with unique numbers, regiment designations, and special features are probably going to get set up on a beginning battle scenario or campaign and that is NOT what I wanted. I only wanted to be able to purchase them as things progressed. Maybe the "bonus" feature and other traits are hard coded, I really do not know.

The other odd thing I have found with the editor is that when I make a new unique unit with special characteristics, somehow the unit sometimes (NOT ALWAYS) gets back into the slot of the ORIGINAL unit I chose to clone. So I wind up with TWO of the same unit on the equipment data sheet file. It gets a little confusing and mind boggling because I have to constantly check the original equipment slots to make sure they are as they were originally in the game and not modified by my new units I cloned from them. Sometimes it looks like the cloned new units are randomly jumping slots with one another or the original units. Sorta gets tiresome and irritating. I have to be in the right frame of mind to do this sort of thing and I cannot do it everyday because it is so tedious.

Also I noticed that the graphics you provided so graciously are working wonderfully except when I pull one up in the purchase menu. They show up in the list with graphics, but the unit graphics do not show up on the right column with the data for the unit. Strange again. Maybe need to put ".png" behind each image's description, don't know for sure. I had thought the images once folded into the original graphics file would work just as the original images and they do except for this feature.

I made about 35 unique one of a kind Historical units of infantry and armor clones from original the original equipment list. Since a couple of them showed up on a starting campaign with no history behind it, I am hoping all the rest of the unique units will not be included in the game's bonus features. Otherwise all I have done is practically for naught! My goal is to have a huge pool of historical units to play in various battles and campaigns and I do not want them to be put up on the field of play in duplicate, triplicate or whatever.

This equipment editor has driven a lot of cobwebs out of my historical memory data banks, revived a lot of historical interest in me and woken up my ability to concentrate on something single minded again.

The work you and Mr. Garnett have put into this game is highly valued and appreciated by me in particular. I am becoming as much a fanatic of it as I am about IL-2 Sturmovik.
