I'm currently writing a planning app for WITP AE and am wondering if it were possible to read data directly from the game files. Currently I'm using the export function of tracker to get some data, but that becomes somewhat annoying after a while. Does anyone know of a way to get at (in read-only form) the game data turn by turn?

Thanks.

No. If it were possible, most PBEM games would end.

Well, that's a bummer.

How does Tracker do it?

Tracker probably uses something like voodoo magic.

I like magic, except when I don't understand it.
