Revealing the terrain

Another feature that may be useful: a button (or key, whatever) that when pressed hides all units, so that we can see the map beneath them without having to move stacks.

Re: ZunTzu's limits

Is this a program limitation, or can it be solved by adding memory to my machine? Hi, lclaudius! You're pushing the envelope here. If your figures are correct, your map is really huge, something like 19,000x22,000 pixels! Such a map would require 1,200 MB of memory when uncompressed. It makes me wo...

ZunTzu's limits

I think I hit upon one of ZunTzu's technical limits; I tried to load a big map --- 318 x 366 cm at 150 dpi --- and ZunTzu crashed with an out of memory error.

Is this a program limitation, or can it be solved by adding memory to my machine?

Re: Major update

Is this version 1.1? The About box still reports version 1.0.

Is there a way to start ZunTzu off-line

Is there a way of starting ZunzTzu off-line? Yesterday my Internet connection was spotty, and ZunTzu was taking forever to load --- and I was only testing some new gameboxes, I didn't need to connect to the Internet.

Warning to save the game

Jerome, a (possible) bug: when you have an ongoing game, there is no save game warning if you ask to load a scenery, it just loads without confirmation.

To run the sound setup: - go to the Windows Control Panel. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" properties box. - click the "Voice" tab. Select the correct device in the "Voice recording" drop-down list. - click the "Test hardware" button. Thanks, that did the...

If ZunTzu fails to determine the correct address, it is not a good sign. You'll probably have trouble hosting a game. Well, it seems that the problem was a compound one: the ADSL router was blocking the port and the Linux firewall was configured to block everything also. When I opened the port on t...

Sound troubles

How can I re-run ZunTzu's sound setup? It didn't recognize the input from my microphone when it ran on installation, although I can use Skype without problems.

The IP determination mechanism used by ZunTzu is simple. ZunTzu sends a HTTP request to this web site, and then reads the IP address contained in the response. That's the IP address of the caller from the web site's point of view, so I don't see how it can be completely bogus. If ZunTzu fails to de...

Re: Tabs

No, the only way to avoid problems is to keep the names short. Hm. In the case of Second Front, the only way I see of solving this is putting more than one countersheet in the same board. Could get a little unwieldy. Oh well. Anyway, for the next round of development, please consider adding one or ...

Tabs

Jerome, is there a way to use more tabs than can fit on the width of the screen? Today I inadvertently used some boards with long names and the rightmost tabs were out of view. Since one of the gameboxes I intend to create is for a monster game with lots of countersheets (Second Front), this can be ...

Do you mean that no address is returned or that the returned address is wrong? Two different situations: 1. Windows box behind a Linux firewall using IP Masquerade --- the address returned by ZunTzu is completely bogus, it's not the public IP address of the ADSL router. I determine this address by ...

I've received your error reports, thanks. Actually you crashed after the sound test step (that's because the test needs to be passed only once and then is skipped on subsequent runs). The error is a Direct3D error. Something goes wrong when ZunTzu tries to assess the capabilities of the 3D card. Wh...
