Just a quick update:
editing aircraft, devices, groups and locations works now pretty well in the editor.
A few hours ago I managed to duplicate the original "Turn Replay" function; the replay crashes happen as in the original function, too,
so I can be sure that my coding is right ... [: D])
But I know what cause the crashes, so you can expect a fully functional turn replay routine in the future!

Hello AlterEgo,

There is one more issue that caused discussions, this is high altitude bombing:
etc...



I knew nothing about high-altitude bombing issues.
I'll sure take a look!

Thanks, Wijter!

Any chance of fixing the Replay PBEM bug?

In a 700-Turn marathon, as Allied, the game crashes during the Night Bombing phase.

Also, completely random icons are in the replay - my B-17s are often intercepted by Stirling IIIs etc....

I would be very interested in having the feature you described in your first post (detailed info on dogfights), as I'd be keeping detailed info on individual kills.

Also, would it be possible to edit pilot names with the editor?

This is fixed!
In the vanilla game all raid positions are stored in an array with a fixed size of 40000.
But the game already crashed if the pointer has reached pos. 32767. (Pointer was a signed integer )
Now I've increased the size of the "raid position array" to 240000.

On the screenshot below you can see that it's 1:51 am, the "raid position array" is already at pos. 163078
and the replay is running fine.

That's on my ToDo-List!

yes, you get the info about every kill in the message listview.
In the future I'll add a CSV export function, so you can view, sort or print important messages with Excel or OpenOffice.

This is the best surprise I had in the year!
Login in and finding your job AE is wonderful!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!
Alter ego:

There are a few here still around that know a lot about this game . They could help you very much.
Somewhere in the forum there is a list of new targets, historically correct. Just to let you know, maybe you want to add some of them.
I suggest the electronics factory, so,if allied destroys a number or reduce the production could delay radar station repair rate. Just a humble suggestion.
Thanks thanks thanks!!!!


EDIT: I found the target list by Swift. I was so lazy, just a couple click and voila!
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=997214&mpage=1&key=targets%2Clist󳞘

Maybe some useful topics:

Thank you, Texeiro!
I'm glad that you like my project!

Time for another small update:
I added the PlayAVI function from the old Talonsoft BoB version.
So if you still got this game somewhere on your harddisk, you can copy the original videos from BoB to your EDBTR video folder
and got a nostalgic feeling (they'll be shown only if messagelevel is set to 4)

As soon as I publish my project (yeah, this month, guess on which day...),
we can talk about further bugfixes/ gfx improvements / OIL problems etc.
Until then I have to rewrite/cleanup some of my code and then I need a few days of relaxation (holidays).

See ya!

First of all, thanks for this release, hope this project can go to the end.
Ok, there's the first dumb question. When I run .exe launcher I got this error message...



...that sound more or less like this:
Hey, dude, EDTBR_Launcher.exe is not a valid application for Win32, don't you know that?

Maybe your .exe have some needed requirements? Or something else? Thanks.


edit: I run your .exe under Windows xp

Ah, that's a sad thing!
I'm using Windows 8.1 and there it works!
Hmm... seems like I must install Windows XP on a second partition on my computer to test it... sorry for the issue!

what I've found out so far (with google) is that there could be 2 reasons.
Please try to install .net 4.5 if you haven't already.
Secondly I should recompile my project with a VC2010 setting...that could help!
I will release a test version within the next hour.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think xp doesn't support .net4.5

.net 4.5 is not compatible with XP :(

Then the second option is the only hope for XP.
Anyone has VISTA on his computer? Is there a problem as well?

Well, I recompiled my project for the platform toolset "Visual Studio 2013 - Windows XP (v120_xp)"
I hope it works now!

Please download it here:
Folder
and choose EDBTR_DLL_067_Release_for_VC2013_XP.zip

If you get the same error on XP as before, please let me know!
Then I must reinstall my old VC2010 and recompile my project again!

P.S. Perhaps I'm working for Microsoft and want you to upgrade to Windows 8.1

btw, there is a need for discussion about my "lowered fuel consumption in dogfights" and the modified "distribute OIL/Fuel to locations" function in my project.
But we should not start the discussion until my project works under all windows versions, imo!

I have downloaded the new version (for XP).
I have opened the game with the Launcher, and this time the game is launched.
But I can´t see any change. I can´t see the new buttons, nor can I open the editor... I'm not sure if I'm missing something.

I have loaded an old save, and also I have started a campaign. Both playing axis side.

be sure that your btr.exe is not set to compatible mode. Right click on btr.exe and examine the compatibilty tab
(don't know how it's called in the english version of windows; in the german version the tab
is named as "Kompatibilität" ) no check marks should be there...

Also in the main menu of the game the version string should be v1.02.067 SE.
Do you see it?

Compatibility is not checked.
I can´t see that version. Only 1.02 (IIRC).
