After a long hiatus I have a new client almost ready.    This client will pave the way for more offline functionality and archiving of stats on your PC.

The changes include...
  • Stats on completed mission will save to the uploads folder in XML.    It includes chat history, Player kills,Deaths, AI Kills, Each kill entry, known team members, Max Detected Vehicle spawned per player, and a host of other information.   Previously a more condensed list was only saved in the event of a upload failure.

This will lead to more functionality in the client with retrieving and viewing this information on later versions.

  • The client dynamically will update its vehicle information on load of the client.    Previously it had a xml file with that data that required a new client release to update.   Now new vehicles with their BR and Nation affiliation will update on each start.

With addition of these changes to the client new changes to the site are underway.    These include...

  • Unknown New vehicles are uploaded to the site automatically when found and a vehicle Edit page to flesh out the unknowns.     The Edit page is accessible by site admins (Let me know if you're interested in becoming one.)     You'll notice on the Vehicle List page a new "Unknown" tab that includes these vehicles the Client detected and site added.

This edit page will include BR's, Max BR's found, a true Vehicle Name field, Class, Type, pic upload, and Description field.   

This will allow admins to make changes to the BR's as they change without requiring manual db intervention.   This then propagates down to the clients at the next launching of OSS.

  • OSS registration page.     Once a player signs up to the forums a Register OSS link will become active on the Main page.    This when clicked will then Assign them a OSS Key, add them to the OSS user db, and provide a link to download the software.      No more manually configuring users through the War Thunder forums and having to wait on me.

A link to your key will then show up in your Career page for users already registered.

  • Database optimization and improvements in data collection.    A major change is underway on how the kills are stored and how much db space is taken up.    A major reduction in storage space is the result.    It should go in within the week and you might notice some errors in the site as that happens.   

That's it for now and I look forward to feedback.

Thanks all for sticking with this project and the help.
