TonyE Posted December 17, 2007 Report Share Posted December 17, 2007 For the first patch I want to have a basic game launcher ready, expanding greatly upon the idea after that. Patch 1 Features: Show scenarios within the HC directory and subdirectories. Show orders of selected scenario. If player chooses to launch the currently selected scenario, check that a valid DB is present somewhere in the HC directory structure and put the DB into place. Alert user if appropriate DB is not on the machine. Allow launching of saved game. Also include the battleset scenarios if possible (this may not be feasible for first patch) Similarly launch the SE (this may have to be basic, i.e. just starts the SE with chosen DB, doesn't load a particular scen) Launch the PE, ideally help manage one pfData file for each DB encountered Launch the Orders Writer for the selected scenario Enable/disable data export DLLs Manage custom battlesets in the same manner as scenarios (matching DB, etc.) may have to be of a very basic nature for first patch. Future Capabilities: Grab xml listing of scenarios, databases, battlesets available on community sites and present it to user for seamless download. Make other content available (custom photos for DB editing, sounds for the game,...) Capture game statistics (platforms destroyed, lost, ...)? Enable deletion of scenarios, databases, saves from local computer. Enable uploading of scenarios, databases, battlesets to community sites?
