I downloaded this about 3 months ago and just got around to installing it.

Awesome tool.



No, wait, that's me...

After using this for two weeks, I must say, awesome tool.

One tweak I could recommend if I may:

Can the dates be set in reverse chronological order, i.e. newest dates on top?

I photoshopped what I mean:

Can anyone tell me why my dates are mixed up? This is one of three games and the others work fine.

Are you re-running combat replays? That would be my guess.

No, I rarely have to rerun a combat replay.

Cool. Would it be possible to reverse order the dates so that the newest go on top?

I think it does all ready. I have three games that all use the default java( something like 8.56 now )
and run fine except the one game indicated above that has dates a bit wonky.

By the way, I reset the monitoring dates and it fixed itself.

I just did some work on the code to make it run with Java 8.65+ and 64 bit. It may run on earlier versions as well, but it should now be 64 bit compatible.

I have tested it on my Windows 10 machine and uploaded a new distribution at the following link. It is now version 1.1

Taking adv of the holiday sale, I just purchased this game. I have been looking around the Forum and I think this Mod is something I should probably have. I am a little long in the tooth and aside from "on" and "off", my computer skills are non existent. If someone could take the time and outline specifically, step by step, how to put this on my computer, i would be most grateful.I do have the most recent v of Java but i am not running Windows 10. I have windows 7 if that makes a diff.
Thanks in advance for you help.

Took a bit of fiddling with the .bat file to get it to run. Once I got it running I get stuck on the same location as last time!

I finally got CR 1.1 to work. Love the program, but very frustrating to get it running, at least for me.
I was convinced it was Java, but not so.
Look at your last save, copy in the exact date, and this is where I went wrong, the time.
The time should be, for example, 12/17/2015 4:57 PM. Note the SPACE between 7 and PM. I was typing 7PM instead of 7 PM.
Run a turn, save in a different slot, run CR again. You should see your latest report in the new slot.
Runs great now.

Thanks for posting. Still no luck for me though.

I think it may have something to do with my computer not using AM/PM format. I´ve tried every possible variation and still no luck.

hmm - I find this very odd that some of you are having this issue while most everyone else does not. So I want to figure this out so people are not frustrated starting up Combat Reporter. Please PM me if you are having this issue and let's try to diagnose it together and resolve this once and for all. As the author I apologize for the issues you are having.

bret80-

My older computer (with most of my AE games) runs v1.05; it is an essential tool IMHO.

Am beginning to transfer my AE games to a newer computer (my gal is just AWESOME!), and am using CR 1.1

Really an terrific tool; greatly respect you for the work and commitment you have put into this marvelous
utility.

Thank You for all that you have done. Your level of commitment is in keeping with all the other stellar (be it mods,
patches, Tracker or help) performers who's support makes AE exceptional.

Merry Christmas to you, Sir!

Mac

JocMeister-

Don't give up. I had a similar time / date issue (as noted in your post) with 1.1 - had to manually enter the
date, and finally tried separating the "AM/PM" as was suggested. Runs fine now.

Take Care, Sir!

Beilisarius-

You will never regret purchasing AE. Combat Reporter is an absolute must with AE; if playing the Japanese side AE Tracker is another requirement.

I also, am of somewhat questionable competentcy in dealing with a computer; however that has never been an issue as the Smart Guys <tm> (and there are more than can be numbered!) will always have endless patience and an answer for you. We have but to ask...

Welcome aboard; you will become a real addict when you find yourself planning your next move- while at the office during the work day...<grin>

NO one has a map folder, the program needs to know the install path so it can find the map artwork.

My problem is the same as JocMeister with Time/date, it does not open the calendar. If I try to add the Time/Date manual it gives the same error.

I have noticed that the calendar evokes a popup that sometimes deploys UNDER the program (which I guess is a popUNDER). iirc I got to it with the ol ALT+TAB.
