Yep, you need to choose one slave slot as the Tracker slot in WITP:AE savegame screen, and you overwrite this slot on each successive turn. On each turn, you copy the upated 003.pws and drop it into the Tracker folder. Thus, Tracker can tracke the progress of your campaign.
Ok, but it sounded like dasboot 1960 was only getting tracker data on one date - the last turn played rather than a range of dates. I thought I had read that having an archive folder and setting tracker to follow the range of data in that folder was the way to get continuous data from every turn. The -archive switch puts the data from each turn into the folder automatically, so you only need to set Tracker up once and it will automatically add each turn it finds in the archive folder. No more manual copying of a save!
Just my understanding from what I have read, I do not know for sure that it works that way. Can any of the veteran tracker users confirm or correct this?
