Hey guys:

I have closed several log issues on mantix in an effort to consolidate all log ideas to one case. Please add notes to Mantis issue #465 for any log improvements / problems that you see. I will try to add some of these into 1.07


Thank you

Uh, #465: Guerillas removed as peace condition shows closed? With other comments about log file information in the "better leader - combat results", there should be an item to add ideas to. Is there? Personally, I would really really appreciate the active MP information be highlighted or something for easy reference when reviewing the log file.

Hi Marshall:

If log entries were broken down by Major Powers (where applicable) this would be good.
No Duplications of entries. See this a lot.
Die Rolls should be listed with the raw die roll and any modifier ("DR=3, Modifier of +1 = 4) and the Die Rolls should be exportable data.

Log entries should be by category:
Some potential examples

Political: France conditionally surrenders to Prussia, -5 PP, France is now at Political Status 27
Political: Prussia accepts conditional surrender of France, +3 PP, Prussia is now at Political Status 31
Forage: France forages. Needs a 4. DR=3, Mod of -1 =2 Success!
Land Battle: France meets Prussia in Battle (include battle summary of forces, chit choices, leaders)
Land Battle: Rnd 1: DR and modifiers etc for other rounds/days
Siege: DRs
Naval Battle

One thing to think about if you add the option of battle markers (crossed flags and burning cities to go with the arrows) that anyone can click on to see the final screen shot for a battle, then it might not be necessary to have round by round battle results in the log file, and you could report on who won/loss, i.e. political point adjustments.

Another question about the battle markers vs Log, will you be able to see round by round troop strengths and losses, or just a final?  In which case, I would like to see it in the log for the start and possible round by round losses since the final battle screen does not answer alot of the questions for situations like commiting guard or breaking before outflank arrives or when the reinforcements arrived etc...
