Thread: Clausewitz Save Game and Scenario Editor/Viewer

  1. #1

    Clausewitz Save Game and Scenario Editor/Viewer

    Current version is 0.8.6 (August 24, 2014)

    Quick download link for those who don't want to wade through the literally paragraphs of text below.

    Once again, this old program has morphed enough to warrant a new thread.

    For those of you just joining us, this program can read data from either a saved game or the game history files and display it graphically. There are also a large number of other views to help you visualize the game data (some of the old views have actually been turned into full-fledged mapmodes in Divine Wind, I believe).

    It also allows you to edit a province's history (if you are viewing history) or save game entry (if you are viewing a saved game). If you are in the political view, you can also edit countries. The history editors have some syntax highlighting and validation.

    What's new about this version?
    Well, I finally got around to making it compatible with Heir to the Throne. And since that took so long that yet another expansion came out in the meantime, I went ahead and updated it for Divine Wind also (using information gleaned from people who actually own it). And then I was on a roll, so I pulled in the Rome scenario editor also and made the code generic enough to handle both. And once that was done, why not support all Clausewitz games? After all, Jamie550 does it and makes it look easy.

    So here it is.

    System Requirements
    Java 8 or newer. You probably have Java installed already, but you might not have Java 8.

    Changes since 0.7.2
    Code:
    === 0.8.6 ===
    
    - Added colonial regions and trade companies mapmodes for EU4.
    - EU4 save games are now generated with the correct magic words at the start
      and end of the file.
    - Victoria 2 province history files now use the correct path.
    - Multiline text strings in .yaml files are now supported.
    - Trade routes in trade mode now include both endpoints as part of the displayed route.
    - Fixed an application hang when a color with invalid RGB values is used in a religions file.
    - File editor dialog now displays the name of the current file in its title bar.
    
    === 0.8.5.1 ===
    
    - Fixed bug preventing saving of history files.
    
    === 0.8.5 ===
    
    - Fixed crash bug in trade map mode.
    - Fort map mode now accepts fractional fort levels.
    - Striped provinces in the political and religious map modes now color the province's value with slightly larger stripes than the province owner's value.
    - Fixed a couple of bugs related to Victoria 2.
    - Fixed a number of issues with replacing files in Clausewitz 2 mods.
    
    === 0.8.4 ===
    
    - Mods can now be defined in My Documents. The subdirectory is defined in
      games.txt.
    - Files in the mod directory that have the exact same name and path as a vanilla
      file are now treated as overwriting that file even if not specified by a
      replace or replace_path command.
    
    === 0.8.3 ===
    
    - Added support for EU4 saved games.
    - Added trade node view for EU4.
    - Added much better support for Crusader Kings 2 history files.
    - Added title view and title history file editing for CK2.
    - Lakes are now properly treated as sea zones.
    - Fixed controller display in EU4 provinces.
    - New-style mod files (since Victoria 2: A House Divided) should now work correctly
    
    === 0.8.2 ===
    
    - Made compatible with EU4:
    	- Added EU4 game type in initial game load dialog.
    	- If /common/<file>.txt does not exist, the editor will now check the /common/<file> directory instead.
    	- Detection of which buildings are forts now also checks for a modifier block if no fort_level is found.
    	- Localization now supports YAML files.
    - Fixed several bugs with the wars list.
    
    === 0.8.1 ===
    
    - Fixed mod loading broken in previous release.
    - In Nomine and later EU3 versions no longer inherit the EU3 1.0 start date.
    - Political mode now assumes that provinces with no controller listed are controlled by the owner.
    - Bookmarks now display the date next to the name.
    - Out-of-memory errors now cause an error message to appear rather than silently shutting the application down.
    
    === 0.8 ===
    
    - Complete revamp of all initialization and loading code.
    - Game types are now defined in games.txt
    - Fixed many longstanding bugs
    - Improved error messages throughout the application
    Download it here (direct link).

    If you don't have EU3 registered but do have EU4, please use this thread instead of PMing me for help. I prefer to help in public rather than private, since that way I have to repeat myself less.

    Since I don't actually have DW or any other Clausewitz games, it's quite possible that there are bugs. Please let me know when you find them.

    I'll give this a couple of days to let things shake out before posting to the other forums.

    Would be helpful to know exactly how it didn't work. Did it give some error message when you tried to run it? Did you verify you have the necessary Java runtime installed? What version of Windows are you running?

    I updated Java today. I am using Win7 64bit. When I double-click scen-ed.bat, DOS screen appers. ("press any key to continue" is on it) Then I click any key, DOS screen is gone, then nothing happens.

    Have you installed 32-bit Java, 64-bit Java, or both? Is your game installed in Program Files(x86)? This could cause problems with Windows UAC.
    Anything else in the DOS window besides the 'press any key' line?

    it is crashing for me because it can not find EU3_Scenario_Editor.jar which does not exist. I installed the download in to a clean directory and left the old version separate. The old version runs fine and has a EU3_Scenario_Editor.jar but the new download does not. I deleted and downloaded again with no change. Maybe some files are missing from the download?

    No, no files are missing.

    Apparently what happened is that SourceForge thought the source code download was the one people would want, so that's what the big green button gives you. Only two people have managed to find the real release version with the .jar file. (And furthermore, my "direct link" links to whatever SF thinks is the best, so it doesn't work either.)

    I am fixing now. My apologies for the mixup.

    I downloaded the correct file and now I get an error that it can not detect the game version. My information from config.txt is

    maindir = "E:\Paradox\Paradox Interactive HTT Steve\Heir to the Throne"
    moddir = Steve

    This is the same information from the old version that works.

    I get the same problem if I point to my separate install of DW

    maindir = "E:/Paradox\Paradox Interactive DW/"

    and it does not matter if the / are / or \ and if a \ or / is at the end of the line.

    MichaelM, it would appear your great tool won't work with the 5.1b patches (not detecting the game version), only the 5.0 DW. Anything you could do about that, please ?

    What are the differences in files between 5.0 and 5.1? Do they need to be treated differently? If not, is there something they have in common that's not in HttT?

    My only information on DW is from Kurper, who (presumably before 5.1b) said that looking for common/faction.txt was enough to identify it.

    Please MichaelM lets make it simple. Just add a line to config.txt that says:

    Version =

    with valid options of

    DW
    HTT

    etc

    There are some good reasons for this:

    1) people like to keep multiple versions of the game on their computers for testing etc with all the various patches etc

    2) currently DW mods with custom maps don't work in a mod directory and so people have multiple copies of the game over written with mods.

    3) Other utilities have tried to detect the version etc using information from the registry and have had no end to problems as gamers gate at one time was not adding the correct information to the registry. Result was that some HTT patches were claiming not to be able to find the game. Add this to the fact that people are constantly making copies in new directories for untold reasons and soon the information in the registry etc is worthless.

    Please - just keep it simple. We are specifying everything else in the config.txt why not the version?????????

    I have been using your wonderful tools for years with out problem and now I can't get it to work because it say it can't detect the version. Don't make us jump through hoops - just keep it simple.

    Also thank you for making the new versions. I know your time is limited and your efforts are greatly appreciated.

    Aww, you're no fun.

    All right, fair enough. My first question remains, though: does 5.1b need to be treated differently in any way from 5.0?
