`Guys, here is the latest version of TOAWxml. I've added a few things since the last version, including copying formations/units, and adding/deleting/editing depots and objectives. I've also added data validation for most fields. If something is greyed out, it probably means that I don't understand what kind of data is required, so have disabled editing to prevent players from entering invalid data. I've also fixed many bugs, although I'm sure there are many more waiting to be found...there are many, many scenarios/issues for TOAW, and it is not possible for me to test for all issues/configurations. If an issue comes up, please let me know with as much detail as possible, and I will try to resolve.
Please use this application with caution, and save your original work!
Next I'll start looking at how to add brand-new formations and units; not sure how quickly that will go. In the meantime let me know if you have suggestions for other features.
Here is the revised manual:
Revise Force, Formation, and Unit Settings: Change any of the enabled settings. Be careful, because I have not yet added any data validation, so if you enter data in the incorrect format, etc., it will probably break your *.gam file. IF YOU CHANGE ANY SETTINGS, BE SURE TO PRESS THE “SAVE CHANGES” BUTTON OR THE CHANGES WILL BE LOST WHEN YOU LEAVE THAT SCREEN!!!
Transfer (Drag-and-Drop) Unit within Tree: Select unit in treeview, left click on unit and drag to formation to which it should be transferred, release mouse button. It will become the last unit in the selected formation.
Transfer (Drag-and-Drop) Equipment within Tree: Select equipment in treeview, left click on equipment and drag to unit to which it should be transferred, release mouse button. It will become the last equipment line in the selected unit.
Change Position of Formation, Unit or Equipment within Tree: Right-click to select Move Up or Move Down, or use the indicated key shortcuts (Ctrl-Up and Ctrl-Down, respectively). Note that in the in-game editor, units are ranked by index number and so will not be in the same order as in TOAW XML.
Delete Unit: Right-click, select Delete, or use the key shortcut (Ctrl-Del). Confirmation is required for deletion, but there is no “un-do”, so be careful with deletions!
Propagate Settings: Right-click, select Formation Propagation or Unit Propagation, as appropriate. On the form which appears, uncheck any settings which you do not want to propagate.
Copy Formation, Unit: Right-click, select Copy, or use the key shortcut (Ctrl-C).
Add, Delete, Revise Depots: . Select relevant force, then press “Next” button in right panel. Click on Supply Depots button to open Depots form. Right-click to add or delete depots, or select relevant cell to revise. Depots IDs cannot be revised.
Add, Delete, Revise Objectives: Click on relevant formation in Tree, then see Objective screen in right panel. Objective tracks can be selected via the dropdown box. Right-click to add or delete objectives, or select relevant cell to revise. Objective IDs cannot be revised.
