its imposible to get the starting positions. as the log does not say where the drops was. tho i think bW was talking about a auto snap when the game starts. but it may take some time before that.
the only possible way to make a script is to check for new games all the time and then take a snap. and still you have to be online and active before the enemy makes his turn. so to answer your question. as a script i dont think its possible
That's not what I was thinking of. Sorry I didn't explain it very well.
Take maps like Feudal war, Das Schloss, Poker club. At the start of the game there's a lot of neutral territories. If it's a fog game then all you see is a load of "??". I want to be able to see where all the neutrals are. The only way I know to do this at present is to go and look in the .xml file or view page source which is a bit of a pain in the arse. It would be good to have a button that shows where all the neutrals are at the start of the game.
I've had a look at this and it's fairly straight forward as most of the code needed is already there in BOB snapshots. Is it possible for me to submit changes to BOB? If not who do I need to get in touch with?
This would be a great tool. Playing the Gallipoli map it would help. Cause yes playing fog maps it takes a lot of time looking at games trying to figure starting spots out. Let me know if you get any where.
Changing the name wouldn't really help as there would still be 2 slightly different versions of the same script. If this is going to be made available then it needs to be incorporated into the official version of BOB.
