Is there a tutorial for this application? XML is basically a foreign language to me.


The “manual” is in the first post of the thread, and is available in a better-formatted pdf in the downloaded version. And the whole point of TOAWxml is that you don't need to know anything about XML to use it, it does everything behind the scenes. You should be able to get a decent idea of what it does by scanning the screenshots in this thread.

OK, I've uploaded a new version (v2.1). As described above, not really many substantive changes: basically just added the ability to change the release/entry turn for static formations (enabled in the latest TOAW patch) and added an indication of the date when turns are indicated (ie, reinforcements, release of formations, events).

I've also fixed a lot of bugs...before deleting formations could crash TOAW, and deleting units or formations would screw up divided units and events which included formations or units--those should now be fixed.

As usual, use at your own risk: I've done some testing but did not, and cannot, test every scenario and situation. Just in case, please keep backups of all of your pre-TOAWxml work.

I'll post some screenshots in the following posts.

OK, as mentioned, I've added dates to make it easier to figure out what a turn number means in terms of actual dates. Here is screenshot showing when a reinforcement arrives.

Here is the date for an event triggered by a turn:

Finally, here is one showing the entry turn for static formations, along with the relevant date:

Currently I don't plan to add any more features to TOAWxml, although I'm always open to suggestions and might do so if there is a consensus for other features. I'll keep fixing bugs though, so please report those. I will also probably update it so that it works with future patches, if there are any.

Otherwise, I think I'll start working on some other stuff; I will let you know when/if anything interesting emerges from those efforts.
