Potion Warcab 0.8.0 BETA version

Hello fellow wargamers,

Late last year I started working on the next release of Warcab: version 0.8.0.

Today I am happy to announce that this work is nearing completion!

Warcab version 0.8.0 introduces many changes, the most interesting ones for players in this forum are:

* Added support for multiple game types (currently SP:WaW and winSPWW2)
+ date-specific OOB nation info and flags
+ map hex connection detection and tramlines
+ unified unit and formation types
+ formations can contain core units as well as support units
+ month-only battle/turn dates

* New feature - campaign battle results
The results of a campaign battle (Decisive Victory, Marginal Victory, Drawn Battle,
Marginal Defeat, Decisive Defeat) are now recorded and reported.
Note: they are not reported for older dossiers (when battle results were not yet recorded).

* New feature - victory hex statistics reporting
The occupation status of the victory hexes is now reported for each battle turn.

* New feature - campaign battle index
The campaign battle index tracks the position of the battle in the campaign, compared to
other battles. It is used to distinguish and sort the different battles of a campaign,
replacing the date-based mechanism which did no longer function with month-only dates.

* New feature - tramlines to stratmap
The stratmap now also shows tramlines.

* New feature - support local and global configuration storage
Warcab preferences can now be stored globally (in the registry), or locally (in a warcab.ini file).

* Improvement - changed unit 'radio' status to 'contact' status
The old unit radio status is now reported as a unit contact status (No Contact, Radio Contact,
Direct Contact)

* Improvement - updated loaded unit position recording
For the position of a loaded unit, the position of the loading unit is recorded.

* Improvement - only report battle losses and force turn status when relevant
These are now only reported for the final (score) turns of campaign battles.

* Improvement - improved savegame unpacked data handling
When the size of the savegame section is not fixed (or unknown), buffers are auto-allocated
to load the uncompressed section data in.

* Fix - dossier/snapshot saving
Don't destroy existing file if saving fails.

* Fix - fixed bug not setting dossier info
The dossier info was not saved in the dossier file and was lost after loading the dossier file.

* Fix - fixed graph horizontal axis label redraw problem
When moving from battle to battle, the orizontal axis labels where not regenerated when the
number of items on the axis did not change between battles.

* Fix - fixed some memory corruptions and leaks

* Documentation:
+ added winSPWW2 OOB file format documentation
+ added winSPWW2 save file sections format documentation
+ added documentation for the spwreport, spwdecompose and spwreconstruct tools

--

Because of the many changes in this version, I would like to invite a bit of beta testing before creating the new official release.

So, if you are willing to do some testing and provide feeback, PM me and I will send you the unoffical current BETA release.

Thanks in advance,
Erik

Hi Lomaster,

I'd like to send you a PM but I can't.
I think you're not yet allowed to receive any?

Feel free to send me a regular email at erik.cumps@gmail.com.

Erik
