I guess I'll need a save file, since this is what I just got:

By filtered to HQ I mean 'Best Lead' set to HQ.  Your picture shows the problem anyway.

Best Lead doesn't tell you what unit it's currently assigned to, but what, according to the game, the leader is best fit for.  And given their high Land rating, Large Ground LCU seems ok...  or else I don't understand you ?

I believe it would be an issue in the witptracker.properties file. Be sure there is a single blank line at the end of the file. If you use the sample that comes with the installation and modify only what's in the brackets [], it should work fine.

Let me know if that works (or if it doesn't).

I'm with Ambassador - I'm not sure what you're expecting here.
When I filtered by "Australian", those leaders assigned to the Australian HQ's did show up. I think what may be going on is that the leader would be best to lead a large ground unit, but has been assigned to the HQ.

Yes, I also got a set from DaveConn.

After a bit of analysis, it looks like it hangs when you have no pilots with any kills. I think I fixed that (if your problem is the same, which I'll try in a few minutes).

Would it be possible to send me the turn before the upgrade and the turn after the upgrade? It looks like I missed the upgrade and I thought I had that working...

Send to witptracker @ gmail.com.

Wow, Floyd, I need to check out this feature some more. Being able to see an accurate, current TOE for LCU's that have devices upgrade would be a great help! If I haven't just missed this feature, I hope you are able to get it working.

Most of it should work. I think it has an issue when a device is upgraded - it was showing the old device name. I'd need to look at it in more detail, but I'll be away for a week on business, so I'll have to look at it later...

I will look, but the 32nd just arrived on map. Could that be the problem? Maybe it didn't upgrade while in play but showed up that way?

I went back and looked and just as I suspected - the unit arrived with the upgraded equipment, it did not upgrade while on the map. I do have the saves if you want them.

I guess the latest save may be a good point to start at, but I suspect that I'd need to find out at what point the device upgraded.

That is what I am trying to tell you. The day it arrived it had the upgraded weapons. I'll send you the files tonight.

Here is the problem. In the CHS 2.08 scenario 155 file the 32nd Inf Div has the upgraded weapons ( 105mm How ). It never has the 75mm Field Gun. It doesn't look like you missed an upgrade, but that the scenario file has updated weapons but points to a formation file that doesn't have them. I think

Floyd, I just wanted to confirm your conclusion that the hang resulted from no pilots with kills. Since I had saved all the past turns of the game I had just started, I went back and found the first turn with a pilot kill, used that turn to initialize the database, and then loaded all the subsequent turns, and the program has performed fine since then.

OldCoot - There are a number of ways to load a new turn ...

1. the file must be the same name as the first file so change the name to witp002.pws and place it in the tracker folder.
or
2.change the file name of the second turn to witp002.pws.001 and then the next to witp002.pws.002 (if you want to keep all the files) etc

If you use option 1 - then use the read turn option
if 2 then the multiread ...

Hope this helps
Damian




PS. Thanks Herve for helping ... ;)



I did get this to work - then. Now I come back a couple of weeks later and it doesn't happen.

Here's what I did:

1 - deleted and reinstalled tracker.
2 - Changed properties file as follows:

Dir=[F:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific]
GameType=[0]
Side=[1]
Password=[abc123]
SaveFile=[witp002.pws]
SaveMode=[2]

3 - Copied witp002.pws and pasted it in the tracker folder.
4 - Ran tracker - no problem - turn list shows turn 2.
5 - Deleted witp002.wps from tracker folder.
6 - Copied witp003.wps and pasted it in tracker folder.
7 - Renamed witp003.wps to witp002.wps
8 - Hit Tracker/Turn/Read Turn
9 - Get a popup message "Turn 2 is already loaded"

Dunno!

I tried changing the tracker properties savefile to witp003.wps, then copying witp003 to the tracker folder and hitting Tracker/Turn/Read Turn and , again I get "Turn 2 is already loaded"

Old Coot,
Tracker is smart enough to check the turn save file.

So:
1. Are you sure that this is turn 3 ? Have you done an End of turn or just saved ?

do the procedure you have already mentioned again ... let me know

Damian

Bingo! I was trying to load a save - not an end of turn. I repeated procedure using the actual end of turn and turn 3 is there.

Thanks much!

Excellent. The next version will contain the fix, so you won't be under pressure to shoot down any planes on the first turn...

So you think it's a problem with the scenario?

I'm not a scenario design guy, but it sounds like reinforcements (like 32nd Inf Div) can arrive already outfitted with upgraded weapons.  From what I've read here, unless the unit arrives on the map, and then upgrades a device, Tracker won't notice the newer version of the device.  In the scenarios, are there supposed to be multiple versions of TOE for units, as newer weapons are available for upgrade?  Would these be the formation files referred to by Nomad?  I would love for someone to figure this out, so Tracker can accurately show me what the "current" TOE for a unit is, and not just the scenario start TOE.

USS American - I've seen the same thing where a unit came in with the device upgraded as well. Not sure how we can deal with this but if Nomad kindly forwards the files then at least Floyd and I can have a look. I doubt however that we could predict this before the unit actually arrives however.

I am not sure what files you would like. If you look at my Dec 8, 1941 file, you will see that the 32nd Inf Div is slated to have 105mm How and not 75mm Field guns. If you look at the standard CHS 2.08 senario file in the editor you will see that the senario file has the 32nd Inf Div starting with 105 mm How and not 75mm Field guns. But it does show ( on page three of the editor ) that the formation is supposed to have 75mm Field guns. I can not give you a file that shows the 32nd Inf Div having 75mm Field guns because there isn't one.

Nomad - I'm coming in half way here so I'm not sure if I have the story correct and I don't want to confuse the issue with what USS America is wishing for (a TOE which shows future device upgrades)

1. Your unit according to the editor (left diagram) didn't arrive as expected - it came in with its upgraded TOE as shown in the diagram(right)... this I have seen before.
2. The problem for Tracker is that the main LCU screen shows the initial formation and not the upgraded and actual formation ?

Or is there something I am missing ? If you send a file of the game as is now - Floyd can have a look or if it is not this problem then I have a number of my own files where I can have a look.

Sorry If I am confusing the issue - but always good to have a second look
Damian
