Hello folks,

i just finished the heavy duty job with my beloved online help. Now I have all my data right at the hand without switching any applications. Feel free to add your own pages. Any feedback is highly welcome.

Be advised that the beta-8 was not working, somehow the file got scambled.

Here is the last beta of 3.67. If there is no feedback I will continue with V3.68 beta-1 unless this one will be bug free, which i do not promise :D (Experimetal version, do not use on real games smile :^o )


2013-12-24- Quapla (3.67b8)
! Rounding Pillage prediction fixed
! Teleport Tool CTRL-V: now shows 5 digits, press space to center, TAB to zoom
+ Common errors Shift F11: Switch off calculation of taxes for 1-clan planets in config

2013-12-26-2013-12-29 Quapla (3.67b9)
+ ALT-F1: Online-Help integrated - Take care to remap DOSBOX eventually
you need external program (in DOC distribution) to show textfiles
If you get messed just delete VPAHELP.INI
! Speed optimization in Common Errors (new option added, since accurate calculation takes very long (Simulate Hostrun for every ship for correct RGA/Pillage)
! Bug fixes in ships over planets
! Bugfixed in Common Errors (S-Warpwell), btw. never pull roots from negative numbers unless you know what you are doing [Thanks to Fireage]
+ All ini-files can be edited within VPA (needs DOS in VPA folder)
-> all new functions are highly experimental.
-> Esp. check CPU power, maybe you have to switch of forecast (Shift-F)
-> last 3.67 beta

Ok, I've made two complete turns in it, but could find no problems.

One things which you could consider adding is support for Jupiter.
But that would be a big job :)

At the moment, I haven't thought of any other things.
The planet simulator (F6) is still not good for pillage/RGA, but that's about it.
