I wanted to start CC 36 today with version 0.93.4.0, but the download of the necessary maps fails.

You can see in the message that he wants to download fgtm00.map.
Such .map file - does not exist, such map drawing does not exist.
If it is not possible to download the map drawing automatically -> how easy is it to determine which map number needs to be downloaded manually?
I think a campaign report would be of great help and should be included with CC.
Also * .map files should be attached to the CC

Merry Christmas!

I will write it all over again - to make it understandable.
I did the test.
I deleted the MAPFILES folder from the game
The game will not start -> no appropriate * .map file -> unknown map to load.

I have restored the MAPFILES folder
The game will be launched -> the * .map file will determine what map is needed. If there is no map - download will start.

The MAPFILES folder with the correct * .map files is required and necessary.

Hi,
I've been playing OpenGen for a long time. Sometimes the program crashes when it's AI's turn. This error has been occurring for at least 2 years, including the last version.
The error is reproducible if I load the Autoexec and fetch the train again.
But if I make changes to my units, either make a movement or deploy additional units, the AI sometimes comes to an end.
The attachment contains ai_turn.log, Debug_log and LasCombat.log as well as the entry in the event display from the last crash.

Regards wenderfalko

New OpenGen 0.93.4.RC2 (Release Candidate) available, fixing:
  • Fixing the issue avoiding units to enter ground carriers
  • Fixed a fake warning when checking map repositories
  • Fixed a fake missing map when checking tiled maps
  • Fixed the issue with campaign videos. Video After was played twice while Video File was never played.
If someone can test and confirm the issues are over, I could promote this RC version to official in a few weeks
:howdy
Happy new year everyone :howdy
Just a thought: Wouldn't it be a good idea to have a version 1.0 with the next release? It's really a great game with only very few issues, many people are playing it intensively. I think it deserves it :)

Hello Luis :howdy

I want to ask if a nation can have more than 999 units or will there be any problems?

A question concerning Leaders:
I was wondering why in a late campaign I seem to never get one anymore, even for veteran units with experice of 2000 or more :notsure
Then I found in the docs that the 'Leader lucky draw' only happens when a unit gains its next bar, so at 100, 200, etc exp, but no more after 500 :idea

Now I did some testing, I had a fighter that I could bring to over 500 exp with its next attack. I tried it again and again, but no Leader ever. I even set the Leader chance to 90% in the Suite (where there is a hint saying '90% => sure'), but also that did not work.
So what am I missing here..? :huh

How many leaders you have actually in your army? There was limitation up to 15 leaders in PG2, and most likely it is still valid in OG. When you reach max. number of leaders, you cannot get new leader any more, at least till one of old leaders is KIA.

Yep, there are only 15 leader slots hardcoded in the game.

Though it is possible to assign the same leader slot to more than one unit manually in SUITE. Thus you can have more than 15 leaders but never more than 15 different ones.

Just a heads up, since it's not really important (and becoming less and less important by the day), but in 0.93.4.2RC the weather animations (rain and snow) don't work on WinXP anymore.
It's a texture size issue and I fixed it easily by replacing the new rain and snow files by the previous ones (from a 2018 version).

Disregard if that's how it is supposed to (not) work nowadays, after all I'm probably the last one using an XP computer for OG. I'm just mentioning it in case it was supposed to still work.

Hello Luis :howdy

I want to ask if a nation can have more than 999 units or will there be any problems?
Units are limited to 800 units currently, which are divided between the number of players, so if 4 players in game, each player can have up to 200 units (for all nations in that player), and if only 2 player each can have up to 400
There are no assignment for individual nations.

So if you question is to raise the number of units to 1000 units per player it would mean to raise current 800 to 2000 (500 if 4 players and 1000 if 2 players) which should not be a problem from the code perspective, because the units' array is statically allocated in memory at load time and one additional MB of memory usage could be only a problem in very low memory systems.

Do you mean the shorter rain/snow files do not work while the old ones (much bigger) does ?

Sorry Luis, i didn't express myself well :bonk

I mean if a single nation in the efile can have more than 999 units. I ask because the number becomes 4 digit with 1000+ units and want to ask if that will cause any problems in the game/suite.
Currently i have Germany at 999 units but would add some more if possible. Otherwise i put them into All Nations.

No, that should not be a problem. The max units in the efile is a limit for the whole efile, and there is no limit for specific nations.
So you can assign whatever amount of units to any nation as far as the total of units for all the nations keeps less than the efile limit.

How many leaders you have actually in your army? There was limitation up to 15 leaders in PG2, and most likely it is still valid in OG. When you reach max. number of leaders, you cannot get new leader any more, at least till one of old leaders is KIA.
Thanks panzerdarek and randowe,
that is the explanation, I actually already have 15 leaders! :yes

That sounds strange. I didn't check for sizes since I found the classic "texture too big" type error message waiting for me when I closed OG. All I know is that I replaced:
  • rain.png (12.2 kB)
  • rain_4096x256.png (7.9 kB)
  • snow.png (1.7 kB)
  • snow_4096x256.png (3.3 kB)
by the old
  • rain.png. (8.8 kB)
  • snow.png (4.7 kB)
and weather animations showed again.
But as I said it's unimportant, since I'm probably the last using an old (ancient) XP computer for OG...

New OpenGen 0.93.4.RC5 (Release Candidate) available adding a new possibility:

* Can define/add in $evade_special 32 to make subs having the efile's special "Evade" ticked to avoid evading

If someone can test and confirm this option works fine, I could promote this RC to official and thus fix the issue with ground carriers.

:yes
RC5 already include -pl server as the 3rd in the sequence, so if you prefer to Dl preferably from .pl, you still need to use the .ini file
Thus the next official version 5.0 will include that too

I just want to make sure I understand well
If I delete the og_repos.ini file,
the map is not available on the first two servers,
-> should be downloaded from the third server (pl)?
Unfortunately, this is not how it works ...
After restoring the ini file - works fine.
to the ini file - the server is entered exactly as you tested ..

No joy... :(
With RC5 the whole "submarine" class has totally stopped evading, no matter the "evade" special setting (other classes using the "Evade" special still evade).

The test scenario is a map of tiled sea, with a bunch of submarine-class units (evading and not) on both sides, and a bunch of destroyers and ASW planes to make them evade. On a patch of land on the side I put some land units (recons) who have the "evade" special and some enemy infantry units to harass them. evade_special was 34 (32+2 for not evading ranged attack). Unfortunately the test scenario uses the new version of the EFile (didn't think it mattered).

RC5 had 2 glitches:
  • new $evade_special value == 32 was disabling evading regardless Evade special.
  • polish map server was not checked properly
Both issues are fixed now (RC5.1), but at this moment I cannot access my sit by ftp, so I've uploaded here:
https://www.file-upload.net ... but McAfee webAdvisor pop up a warning about a troyan :notsure so I'll try to upload to other site.

Back, and checked all evasion configurations. My conclusion: Evasion toggle on submarines works great in RC5.1! :cool :clap
(Also the "class_evade" setting, which I felt had gone a little funky in RC5, seems to be respected once again.)
Thanks again! :notworthy

I cannot understand and neither replicate that either :huh .

First because map 1039 is correctly downloaded if I remove from my disk, and so no tiled map should be tried (I tested).
Then, I changed my settings to "use always tiled maps" and the tiled map is correctly set up.

Thus, the only reason I can see for that message is because the file is really not found in the proper folder: neither EFILE_ATOMIC nor main OPENGUI folder.
Have you checked that "hex_tiledecors3.png" file is really accesible in C:\OpenGen\OPENGUI\hex_tiledecors3.png, using Windows Explorer ?

Otherwise I cannot wonder any other reason. :howdy

Hi Luis
Can you take a look at what Randowe wrote and further away from there?
viewtopic.php?f=67&t=756&p=13691#p13688

Would you be so good and explain the whole process - to get the right medal (drawing) on the dlg_inspect.png panel
Why is it getting the wrong content from the inspect_medal.png file (why is it shifted)?
What is the effect of the color profile and the color range of png files (24 bit, 8 bit, indexed color)?
I will try to work on it, but I need information about the process until the final result (complex drawing)

EDIT

There were two different NATIONS.TXT files - one for English (shorter) and one for Polish (longer) :evil
It seems that the length of the inspect_medal.png file (in pixels) is divided by the number of countries entered in the NATIONS.TXT file -> therefore the shifts came out (because, 1738/95 = 18.3 -> 18.3 * 15 = 247.5, while 1738/79 = 22 -> 22 * 15 = 330)
So in the first case the 18.3x19 rectangle starting at 247.5 px was taken
in the second case - a 22 * 19 rectangle starting from 330px

Sorry for delaying answer :bonk

Yes, this png has the possibility to extract images of different size, figuring each image size from the whole png size and the number of nations.

But it is assumed that the png's width is a multiple of the width of each single image, otherwise occurs what you say.
So if the icons' size is 18 x 19, then inspect_medal.png size should be 18*95 x 19 (1710x19) pixels exactly.

I had to implement this solution because there where different sizes used for the equivalent PG2 .shp file, and setting a fixed new size, would have forced to change update some efile's UI files. Currently the advised size for images in inspect_medal.png is 22*19

Conclusion: you can use the single image size you prefers as far as the image's width * nations' number is equal to the width of the inspect_medal.png

Btw:
I am moving my website (and domain) so it is currently down until DNS are updated after domain finish the transfer.
I've also reorganized my website, removing many old tools and files (basically old PG2 material) that I think nobody uses nowadays. Anyway if anyone find that any removed link is needed, no problem in restoring.

The new website is allocated right now in same server than open-general.com and, until "luis-guzman.com" is available again,
you can access using: luis-guzman.es if you want to check the links removed.

On the first branching of the 1939 France campaign, apparently the choice interface is breaking. It says it is failed to load the map, leaving me with a blank, dark grey screen that I can't interact with in any way. I presume this is being caused by my ludicrously low v-ram, failing to load decals (the resolution limit seems to be 2000 something pixels) and map decor, ultimately breaking the map.

Is there a way for me to walk around that? Are all the branching campaigns going to be like that?

  • Efile size increased to 11.999 items
  • Polish map server is checked after official open-general.com server
  • luis-guzman.com map server doesn't host maps anymore, so it is removed from the list of the servers to check
:howdy

On the first branching of the 1939 France campaign, apparently the choice interface is breaking. It says it is failed to load the map, leaving me with a blank, dark grey screen that I can't interact with in any way. I presume this is being caused by my ludicrously low v-ram, failing to load decals (the resolution limit seems to be 2000 something pixels) and map decor, ultimately breaking the map.

Is there a way for me to walk around that? Are all the branching campaigns going to be like that?
It is a campaign issue, not a game issue.
Maybe if you tell which efile and campaign are you playing we could provide the missing map, or create any alternative one :dunno

In case anyone knows what's going on, my HD broke and I cloned it with almost no errors, everything works except open general, although OpenGenDD.exe works. New installation and without working, so it will be some windows library, does anyone have an idea of what happens? :whine :whine
