Ok, checked the program, dead. Not going past the crew thingy. I believe i know the problem(s).
One: I've played with the chat log loacations so many times it may not be connecting correctly
Two: The most likely problem that took some research/talking it out with someone in my crew. My chat logs...they well...aren't chat logs. When i double click (as if to open and read them) nothing happens. When i got and check their propoerties, it says weird things like "not a document, shortcut only"...etc. It sounds confusing as i tend not to know how to explain computery things. If ye need more explanations i can try to screenie things for ya.
Three: I haven't downloaded anything since you were last "active" any recent updates aren't on my computer.

Thanks for working on this :) I loved QM I and predict i will feel the same about the new & improved QM.

If anyone familiar with QMII could take a peek to see if the wiki page for QM is up to date, that would be a good thing. http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/QuarterMaster_Pirate_Helper

Aye, that's definitly out of date. It looks like version 1.6 or 7. The current version is 2.2.

Version 2.3 is due out soon and one of the things I'm going to include is the last of the help files. So that should make a wiki update much easier as most of the text could be copy-pasted. I'll leave that to the experts though. It seems everytime I touch the wiki I envoke a storm of rewrites and editing, lol.

On a different topic, is there anyone who can maintain a mirror site for the QuarterMaster download? My site does go down sometimes and I cringe everytime I see those "What's up with QM" posts bobbing around the forum. It would be nice to have an alternative DL location.

Sure, when I get the file I'll host a mirror and update the wiki as such.

Looks like this damage table needs to be updated.

Was using a Sloop vs Brigand Merchant Galleon.

The Merchant Galleon had its nose pointed into a Wind pushing it in the opposite direction.

I used the wind to fire 3 shots into the MG trying to turn last second but failed and "bumped" into the Galleon to the side of my sloop.

This didnt create 33% damage as shown in QM, but rather 8% like a rock ram lists.

The best way is to make a new folder in you QM directory, it's usually C:\QuarterMaster, and call it "ChatLogs". Like this:
C:\QuarterMaster\ChatLogs\

Then tell PP to save them there. Be sure to read the help files in QM on how to get set up to avoid any little troubles.

A lot of the new stuff I'm putting in V2.3 is to make QM more atlantis compatible.

Hopefully it wont be too much longer. The sea monsters are being difficult :[

OK, I have a question as it seems this should be doable...

Is there a way to make the Damage counter automatically collect the CB hits and report them to the Damage Counter screen?

My reason for asking this is that we know that the game - both client side and on the game server - must compile this information as the battle sequence takes place. It has to record it for the me lee as well as PvP battles to determine if and when a ship should sink. And it must compile what type of shot is being used, as well as when ships ram each other hit rocks.

One other thing as far as battles go ... Would it also be possible to add a turn counter?

I believe that QM only "knows" what is in your chat logs, so it has no idea about the type or size of ship that you are battling, when and how ships are damaged, or when new turns take place. Perhaps the best feature that could be granted with the current design is for the damage counter to be reset when you engage a ship.

Agree with what Tirian said...

QM can only know what is in the chat logs and the system logs... Thus, QM has no idea about the battle itself, just the start, finish, and outcome of it (and PoE booty count)

That being said, a very poor turn counter would count the 30 seconds+ animation time for each turn on the board. Since animation can take anywhere from >1 second to a full 5 seconds (move and shoot/grapple on each turn) it would be impractical to make a timer.

An option to reset the counters on re-engage would be a nice feature...

Just tying up the last few loose ends for V2.3 this week. Sorry for the delay.

Longships will be going in to the voyage planner, soon as I stop it from trying to load up sea monsters with rum and shot.

Not really... Accessing chat logs is ok, accessing the In Game data, which would be needed in order to do what you requested, is in direct violation of the YPP TOS because it would interact directly with the code. Reverse Engineering and all that. Reading from the screen is one possibility, but with the lag issues in the game, it isn't as possible as one would think. So QM will most likely never automatically count shots for you until they add chat line play by plays.

I assume this is a request for an automatic reset of the damage counters whenever a ship is engaged. This would be a GREAT option. Easily done I would think as there are chatlog messages to work with.

\me adds another request for Soar to do yet more work.

Ok, don't know if it'll be in the next update or not but here is a scenario:

A respectable Officer (from my crew) planks himself from MY ship already IN PORT just to be funny, i happened to have QM on and set to auto-black list for plankings, he went on. I've gotten him off the black list byu hitting remove, but how do i take the offence from his name? i alos like it with 3 offences gets perm. listed...I don't want someone like him getting black listed for something dumb such as that....I've brought up his page, went to hte offence box where it already has a little one, highlighted it tried to overwrite on it, no avail, tried back spacing and the darn little 1 doesn't go bye-bye...

Any help?
