I think the instructions on how to use the static.ini checker could be re-written to make them clearer.  ;)

Hello
 
I was out for a while and now i want to go on with with my map. I need this special FMB++ (I do not know the name anymore ). With this tool (activated with JSGME) i was able to put airfieldplates and arrows into the actors static ini of my map. Does anyone know, where I can download this tool?

Thanks

Great tutorial!

But be careful that you don't make the same mistake I made. Make sure you use the Kevin V.5 tutorial- not the earlier version 4 (unless that is your exact plan). The version V.5 link is not broken- but gives you some error messages. Just keep on clicking through it. I downloaded the version 4 and learned much more than I wanted to!!!!

I had to "improvise" to make the updated Microdem work with old V.4 instructions. I learned a whole lot-but wasted a whole lot of time. Very frustrating.

Trying to use AutoPop...

Made my template on the unlocked FMB and made a static.ini file but...
on the Readme it says, "Use act.jar tool to extract outbuildings.txt from the actors.static you just saved."

I am assuming that the act.jar tool is the Actors Management Tool by Zuti...

I downloaded the Actors Management Tool by Zuti but there is no executable in the downloaded files to start the program.  Am I missing something or am I just ignorant of how it all works?

the file you need to run is called:

Z_ActorsManagement.jar
just click on it.
 The file is inside the folder
Z_ActorsManagement.

EDIT:

Besides of Readme, Manual is here:

I double-click the jar icon but I get a message saying "Windows can not open this file".  ::(

Can anyone recommend where to obtain Java for XP?

JRE?, here:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html

You should download: "jre-7u55-windows-i586.exe", that is what I have installed. I have also installed of 64 bit, but I think you do not need it.

Much thanks for your help, Uzin
EDIT:  btw, "jre-7u55-windows-i586.exe" seems to be outdated so I simply downloaded the latest one.

No way to let it work under Win 10 also using the 7u55 Java Version ( 2018, as reference for nowadays users )


EDIT: Got it working in Win 10!

You have to download first the Java 7u45 version ( Check the JAVA ARCHIVE ).

Install Java in a folder named " Java " on your desktop ( not absolutely in the folders " Programs " or " Programs X86 " )

Extract the Z_ActorsManagement files ( Download the files indicated in Reply #18 by Uzin ) in a folder on your desktop. ( Name it " Map Tool " for example )

Once done right click on the Z_ActorsManagement.JAR file, scroll down and select " Chose another program from your computer to open it ".

Then go to the Java folder and open it using the application " javaw " ( Be careful to not select the one named " javaws "!!! )

Click " OK " on all the windows that will appear and that's it... the program should now show up now on your screen!!!
