IIRC it was said that "WitP Tracker" will be integral part of WitP-AE!


BTW, with round 500 post count you most certainly are not begginer...

IIRC they told us just that - the "WitP Tracker" will be installed automatically together with WitP-AE...

Are you sure?

I remember shortly after the WITP-AE annoucement that Woos's utility "WipPDecoder" will be tied to WITP-AE. It was my understanding that the file formats and/or encryption were changing in WITP-AE.

But this wouldn't be the first time I drank too much beer and my memory took a vacation.

I was always a bigger fan of Bodhi's utility, and thought most of its' features should be integrated into WitP.  The ability to click on combat summaries and be brought to the appropriate place on the map was worth the price of admission.

Although it was free . . .

I also always liked Bodhi's utility too!

Unfortunately he stopped developing it long long time ago (just before my vectors idea was implemented in it)... <SIGH>

I agree with you A11 Bohdi's Utility, it is still my choice of utility to run in the background. I hope he will adapt it to work on AE.

Pretty good. The last one is Adebayor not Toure. Toure is the Mr. Eko of soccer, doesn't smile. Every time I see that look on Fabregas' face I giggle. He has the same idiotic/orgasmic expression every time he scores (which hasn't been much this year).

The sig is nice but, very unfortunately, it is too big at 1.5 MB of size... it severly slows down the page loading everywhere it is posted for everyone not having broadband...

I feel very ignorant for asking this as after playing WitP for nearly 2 1/2 years, I have no idea what Woo's utility is, or how it is used.

I am sure I am not the only one though, especially for the newcomers, so can someone shed some light on what Woo's utility is? Will it be in-game, or will you have to access it outside of the game (is that how it works now with vanilla WitP?)?

Thanks in advance

Chad

Chad,

Woos's utility, like Bodhi's utiltiy and all the others, was created after the release of WITP. It runs outside of the program like the rest. Look in the Must Read threads or just search on "woos" and you wil find it.

Thye all have +'s and -'s.

Enjoy.

Can't say much on the jumping people in the Sig picture but yes, WitpDecoder will be part of WitP AE. Or something with the same functionality (Some people on the development team don't like the name, so if you have a suggestion that me and them like ...).

It is not integrated into WitP AE but will run in its own window.
The tool will be installed automatically but you will have to install Java on your own.
It still follows the philosophy of not displaying what you can see in game, so it has less tables than WitpTracker.
It uses the same database engine as WitpTracker (hsqldb) but not the same database schema, so Tracker can not directly use the database but maybe the Tracker guys will be able to import the data from it (direct access from the savegame files will no longer be possible as those use 'industry level' encryption).
I am currently adding a mode where it behaves a little bit like Bodhi's utility (which I also like) but I won't write the parsers for the turn reports. Someone else will have to do that (I can provide info on how to put the data into WitpDecoder's database).

Did I forget any question?

Thanks for the replies Flipper and Woos. Just another reason to be excited about WitP:AE. Which brings up the question of a release date . . .

Woos - should have given you snaps as well.  I dig Witp decoder too.  IIRC had more benefit if you were playing the japanese though.  I never had a big enough head for all that production stuff. . .

To everyone else, sadly I think I have to take my sig off.  DIdn't realize it was so big, and the last thing I want to do is bog down page loads

Woos, your decoder is a great "assistant" for playing the game. Since the "assistant" to Admirals is called an "aide-de-camp, how about calling your decoder "WITP-aide-de-camp"? Or if that seems too long, "WITP-ADC".

ADC is probably too "land lubber ish" for an Admiral ... maybe "Flag Captain" .... as a name component ...
