    Dear guys

    I made a VB programm to read your battle log files. It is easy to use and will reveal more data than u can find in the logfile by just reading it with Notepad or so.

    Example:: The programm also determines the after battle koku worth of the army

    i also made 2 scenarios and included it in the programm.

    u can get the programm at www.mongols.club.tip.nl

    wait and watch the animation above (100 kb).

    then

    look in the left frame, go down
    press the shogun button and Voila

    See left, the whole setup is 5mb! unzip it and setup as normal

    if u have all dll's and ocx files u can imagine u can just download the exe file (136 kb, see right).
    The exe file is a newer version than the one in the package. so u can overwrite the old file with it.

    I will be away for three days with the family (earhunting), and ofcourse there are some minor points to improve.
    The koku value of all troops per honour is just 97% ok. and i must add multiplay for games more than 1 vs 1.

    Please do not mail me but put all your comments in here. I am sure u will like it. Greetings

    If in options you set the game to store logfiles. They are stored in the ***\shogun\logfiles\ directory.
    *** being where ever you installed shogun to.
    Default being C:\program files\TotalWar - Shogun\shogun\logfiles or something close to that.

    Sample name :-
    "internet_multi 10-21-00 015745.log"

    Nice one Mag,

    you are being busy, all this and playing all those games too. Great one for the community, but will people be able to learn from their mistakes?

    I for sure hope I can. On the other hand, is it a good thing we can continue to see each others armys? Or is the arguement that it will mean constantly shifting tactics?

    BTW Mag, love the Animation, you did good with the tool.

    Magyar: Looks like the friendly kills are not being fully counted for each unit, and that line's total is incorrect. Friendlies are properly accounted for in the difference between your dead and opponent's kills. Not sure if you've noticed this.

    Magyar, great job !!!!!!!!!

    I have not yet gone into detail but it seems to me that the program does not show stats for games of 2v2 or more; I can only see stats for 2 players no matter what. Am I correct or is just that I have missed some of the tabs?. Oh wait I'm just reading in your original message that you have not yet implemented it for more than 1v1, nevermind.

    It looks beautiful. It is the perfect tool to analyze how your opponents select armies !!!

    Hi Magyar Khan,

    The logfile reader is a really handy tool! However I have often had problems using it, as in it is not able to read some files and it shuts down when any error occurs. I have had error '5' (Invalid procedure call) and error '6' (Overflow). I notice that it is usually able to handle multiplayer logfiles, but usually not singleplayer logfiles.

    Now this is not meant to be a complaint. I just want to provide some info which I hope will be useful for you because I know you are still working on fixing some small bugs. Hope this helps! If you want the logfiles which caused those errors, do let me know. hecose@hotmail.com

    I look forward to any next upgrade of the reader.

    Nice app!

    The overflow error *might* be because sometimes insanely high game duration times make it into the log file. If you are converting it to an integer, be careful the value doesnt exceed 32K beforehand.

    What are you planning to do with the other tabs you left empty?

    good point vanya, i will change it to longs

    AW the 1.12 version is on its way! where all koku values are ok and a fully multiplay watch option for more than 2 players. and some minor bugs will be left out

    Vanya, the other tabs will be used for scenarios if some people have good ideas about it.
