Bah...
Winplan Reg with VPA is better.

Nope. That is why I'm asking "Rules what?" I can't think of anything it rules?

Oh, I see, VPA rules over DOSPlan. I will agree, everything rules when you compare it to DOSPlan.

Its author used it exclusively in a game I played with him at that time, so it probably is usable for playing. However, he also has interesting views on C programming which made trying it not easy for me (e.g. it needed about 100 MB RAM, which was a lot at that time). It's also not too easy to compile.
I never had a problem with VPA, I found it very easy to learn and much more intuitive than Tim's DOSplan. That was way back before WinPlan came out. While Winplan was technically better than DOSplan, everyone knows that, the interface is what drove me away from it. He's a good concept guy, but Tim's interfaces stink. :)

So much for that I guess. :)

I look forward to trying out PCC2 when it's finished. I use your PCC now for my make turn phase, and occasionally to poke around the game a bit. But I find VPA does everything I feel I need in the game.

I don't know how to use Winplan or Dosplan anymore.
The only thing I use from WP is the regcode so that I can
get the 3.5 rst format.

I install my game folder each time I start a new game with a fresh DOSPlan.
Then I add my utilities (VPA, PCC, Resource.pln, Groundpound...etc.) and edit my batch file I use.

After placing the RST into the game folder, I unpack with VPA, and doe the maketurn process with PCC. Then I use Merlyn's SendTrnPro to send the turn in.

Havok,
Did you ever get a reg'd winplan?

For me, it's simply the fact that more data comes in the 3.5 RST
versus the 3.0 RST which forces me to use the 3.5 regcode.

I do have a reg'd Winplan... Have VGAP 4.0 too if you want to borrow it.
