Default KSDCommander

KSD Commander is a program for viewing statistics, captains customization and writing patrol diaries. + it can randomize music on the gramophone and you can specify diapason of days between patrols.

This program successfully works from April 2015 in KSD mod on SH-4. This weekend I modified the program to support SH-5 once tried The Wolves of Steel modpack. I am very impressed with how modders have transformed this game

I am russian speaking. Sorry for my english.



The program has 3 tabs:

Statistics
 

The program reads your saves and forms statistics. You can submit your statistics to the server, if desired. In this case, you will be able to compare your results with results of other players, as well as choose a photo for your captain, to write his biography and diaries.
You can select photos to your captains from 260 available. It's all photos of real U-Bootwaffe captains. And the photo that you choose for your captain will be not available to select by other players.
If you play dead is dead format, you can specify the date of the death of your captain. After that, his stats will not updated, even if you continue to play.






Bar
 


At the bar you can:
1) Listen to the music that is played in the same folder as the gramophone in the game.
2) Read the newspapers. The papers are published as the main events on the fronts and achieving players. If you are sinking this month more than others will certainly write about you. Do not leave without attention sinking enemy battleships or aircraft carriers.
3) To share practical advice to other players or to read their tips.




Settings
 




Installation
 

1) Download the archive.
2) Extract files to the root folder of the game.
3) Start KSDCommander.exe. Optionally create a shortcut on the desktop and in the future to run the game through this program. In this case, your statistics will be regularly updated on the server.


Security
 

1) This is the exe file. Any exe file could potentially be a virus or some other malicious program. Here above all a question of confidence to the author. Author in this case I do. And with all responsibility I declare that I am not ******* writing malware.
Many comrades (in the screenshot above shows) installed the program and published its statistics on the server. Monitors have not failed to explode, and the disk is not formatted )
2) The program does not delete or modify your saved. It only reads them.
3) To submit your statistics to the server requires registration and authorization. Registration is simple. You do not need any confirmation via Email and other garbage. Simply enter in the appropriate fields username (preferably nickname with a forum for awareness) and password of 4-20 characters. In no case do not use passwords that you use in other programs or websites.

Yes it should be compatible with any modpack on SH5. I play with TWoS too.

My PC won't let me download this, it says it's malware and blocks it, how can I convince my PC to let me have it?

Thanks

How about to disable your "paranoid" antivirus software for a second?

My Win 10 says it's malware too. I don't know why this happens. You can disable your firewall or antivirus for a minute to download and extract it.

This program was originally in the Russian language. And i know that English translation contains many mistakes, cause my English is ugly. All English strings are in Resources\en\Strings.po. It would be nice if somebody with good English checked the file and correct all mistakes in translation. After that i can include fixed file in archive and share it to everyone.

.po files easy to edit with free programms like Poedit. But it can be edited even with notepad.

It would be great! Most of the text is the news. Perhaps it is not necessary to touch them now. The most important basic interface text. And it is not much.

I updated the app, cause I found a few new differences in the savefiles of SH5 from SH4. In particular, incorrectly considered tonnage.

You have fixed incorrect tonnage values? Overall tonnage values in SH5 savegame files are pretty messed up, they are doubled or something...

ALL in all, great job indeed!

Would you have any objections if I would make your app standard part of TWoS megamod ? This way programs popularity would be drastically increased...

In SH4 i read tonnage from

Reason=CSS_PatrolEnd
TotalTonnageSunk=x

but in SH5 x - wrong tonnage number and I plus up all the tonnage of ships sunk

Reason=CSS_UnitDestroyed
Tonnage=y

In SH4 there is no Tonnage parameter in CSS_UnitDestroyed. And also in SH4 there is no Text param with coords and EUnitSide param.
