OT: looking for zovs66

My name is Erik Cumps, I am the creator of the War Cabinet tool.

I am looking for a "zovs66" who used to be registered on the tapatalk SP:WaW forum and who expressed an interest in adding support for winSPWW2 to my War Cabinet tool.

I wish to contact him, because I have some good news in that regard. :)

Best regards,

Re: OT: looking for zovs66
So, if you don't mind me asking, what exactly is this War Cabinet? Got my curiosity here!

I'll let Erik explain. Essentially it allows you to track stuff in a campaign game over time. You can also track stuff in scenarios. Its most usefulness I would think is tracking your core campaign forces status.

Re: OT: looking for zovs66
Thanks for the quick introduction, Don! :)

From the README.txt:

Warcab is a tool to record and track battles in an SPWaW campaign, or to
record and track turns in standalone battles from scenarios. It is inspired
by Campaign Watcher.
Warcab tracks information for core units (including reassignments) during
a campaign. It also shows and tracks information for core, auxiliary and
opponent units during battles and battle turns.
Its current main missing features are data export and printing.

Also, and of some importance for this forum I expect, I have started work on adding support for winSPWW2 to warcab.
This work has progressed to the stage that an experimental proof-of-concept is available and that work has just started
on integrating that new code into the offical warcab application.

Finally, because pictures say more than words:
...apologies, the images are big...

Re: OT: looking for zovs66
So this only displays data for a campaign or scenario? Super useful, I have to admit! I saw the screenshots but figured it was sort of a 'bigger' thing, like the Men of War campaign bit where it was a strategic map where you could move units and fight out the battles as a scenario.

Re: OT: looking for zovs66
No originally as Erik stated it was originally created for the other game and I asked him if it might work for WW2 and MBT. He said he'd take a look at some saved games and get back to me if it did. It does.

Essentially its just a fancy way of viewing your core force for a campaign over time, or for viewing how a large scenario played out (I am using this for a monster scenario to track things).

Here some screen shots from a recent German East Front (small 1890 points) CG I am running (been busy editing other things...):









Pretty neat stuff, if you have more completed scenarios in a campaign game you'll get more results, I have only completed one battle thus far.

Re: OT: looking for zovs66
That is a really interesting program. In the last two ScreenShots, the map appears to show which side has control over specific sections?

Re: OT: looking for zovs66
Yes that is correct, if you look closely you’ll see the check boxes I toggled on/off.
