vLSO 0.8.1.2 is ready

Ok guys,
This time nothing special, just some small cosmetic changes and a 'Range check error' correction. People would experience it only when approaching a FCLP area with a carrier (or more) present within a 50nm range.

Happy bouncing!

Windows 7 theme pack

Ok guys,
Those of you using Windows 7 can customize its desktop by using my Navy theme pack. Download it from the sidebar and save to a place of your choice, then double-click and it's done.
This pack is optimized for 1920x1080 resolution.

Enjoy!

EDIT. I've added more background images, now it totals 31. Please re-download the pack.

vLSO 0.8.1.0 is ready

Ok guys,
As usually, there are a number of new features in this beta, as well as some minor tweaks and bugfixes:
  • New marshal/tower calls
  • New LSO comments and voice calls
  • A dynamic burble behind the ship
  • A bunch of new columns in the CSV
Also, I recommend to (re)move the original Sound folder and its Marshal subfolder prior to unzipping this 0.8.1.0 package.

vLSO 0.8.0.0 is ready

Ok guys,
Finally my work on this beta is done... It's a major update, with a number of new features and with some minor tweaks and bugfixes... What's new?
  • A rollback option (after a successful trap)
  • A NATOPS option (to follow CQ/FCLP requirements)
  • Tracking pilot's currency
  • A new logbook file format
  • Export and import of logbook records in various formats (XML, CSV, LXF)
  • New LSO comments - TWA, TCA, LIG
  • New LSO grade - WOP
  • Colored CQ/FCLP logbook records
  • Color icons for different CASE approaches
  • New LSO voice calls
Don't worry about the new logbook format - the program will automatically convert your logbook to the new format, the LDF, provided the logbook was created by vLSO of the 0.7 series. The original DAT file will be renamed to Logbook.old.

Also, I'd suggest to move (not just copy) the Sound folder to a safe place and replace it with a new one from the package.

Well... Download, unzip and have a good weekend flying with the new program! )))

beta 0.8 WIP [3]

Just a couple of tiny changes...

As per Scott Gray's requests I've added one more export format to the program, the CSV, so CO/LSOs will have another option when parsing pilots' logbooks and filling their greenieboard DBs.

A sample of output CSV file would be like this:

Busy B;2014-01-05;D;WO;1;SLO(H)X FIM F(H)IC ;
Busy B;2014-01-05;D;OK;4;F(LO)AR ;
Busy B;2014-01-07;D;(OK);3;(LO)X (LO)IM (H)AR ;
Busy B;2014-01-07;D; OK ;5;;
Busy B;2014-01-07;D;(OK);3;;
Busy B;2014-01-11;D;OK;4;(LO)X FIM (LO)AR ;


Also, the number two column now displays the AC model instead of the AC number. It seems to be more reasonable when tracking pilot's currency...
