CMH 1.1.0 (Custom dropbox folder fixup)


Recommended Posts

H2HH has always created a chat file in the shared folder for each player who is using it, irrespective of whether the other guy is using H2HH. That is how it knows who is using it :)

Something different is going on than what you think: I can't tell what it is yet.

If you have the two-tone red icon showing, it means "CMH thinks that your opponent is using CMH or H2HH". And this means that CMH thinks that it found a chat file that is not yours.

Have a look at the top of the log. There you will find a comment telling you what your ID is. Have a look in the shared folder. If there is a chat file in there that is not matching your ID - this is from someone else.

Note that you can't use CMH to manage the same game on two of your own computers at the the same time, for this reason. Could this be the explanation: are you trying to play they same game using CMH from two different machines at different times?

(Bazinga! I just had a realisation about how to support players doing this!)

Why would would it be looking for CMFI incoming and outgoing mail in the game installation directory? Shouldn't it be looking in Documents instead?

(Edit) Can you click on the CMFI install on the Your Installations pane, do "Edit Install", and make sure that "Installation Root Directory" is pointing to the Documents directory where the Game Files folder is.

That's where that needs to be pointing: it definitely got confusing when CMFI came along and put the Game Files in a different place than the executable. I should maybe change the name of that dialog field to say "The place where the frick'in Game Files are!!"

:D

I'm running 1.12 on my Win7 machine and everything is working fine.

One issue though (isn't there always), I started a Red Thunder game and it shows the Red Thunder icon under "other info" but the other all ready existing CMBN games show a sad face icon with a question mark above it.

Should it be showing the CMBN icon?

Yes.

Can you send me the log.

Thanks!

Ah, I see the problem. The installs I added for CMBN/CMFI/CMRT were correct, but there were "ghost" installs already present when I first ran the program, and these were pointing to the wrong place.

So, should we start calling you "Shelly"? CMx2 PBEM is in even safer hands than I thought ...:D

Martin, can you add a feature whereby I can remove a "double-entry" from my list of installed games? Right now, by default, CMH is looking for my CMBN and CMFI installations in a place I don't have them installed, so I had to manually add the games so that they show up in the list of installed games. The end result is that I have two entries each for CMBN and CMFI - one for where I actually have the games installed, and one where the games are listed but grayed out (because CMH is looking for them but can't find them there).

Due to an error, I couldn't open the oppo's chat file, so I'm proceeding as if they don't have one. Maybe it will clear up later... this can happen if Dropbox does something wierd...

I have no idea how to fix this, I have tried reloading CM helper, 2 different version and they both give me this same damn screen. Please tell me I am not going to have to start all these damn games again.

Don't post logs here.

Do send them to me in email.

Try exiting CMH then deleting

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\GreenAsJade\CMHelper\AppState.txt

and starting CMH up again.

Please tell me I am not going to have to start all these damn games again.

You are not going to start any games again. Why do you think CMH would have anything to do with that? The absolute worst that might need to happen is your opponents send you the latest turn file again, if you deleted it. This will probably happen automatically if they are using Dropbox and CMH.

theres something else going on with H2HH and CMRT combined with dropbox

files wont completely upload to a dropbox folder,they get to about %90 then hang.

taken a while to figure it out,but,i can conform its something to do with H2HH and CMRT

if i try and use H2HH in the normal way,files will not successfully upload to the specified DB folder.

if i delete the greenasjade folder from the roaming folder competely,i CAN manually move files around to DB no problems.

its worth noting that even with H2HH running or not i cannot move successfully any CMRT files to DB,manually or otherwise.if the Gaj folder in roaming has been created by running the program at least once.

deleting the Gaj folder in roaming and NOT running H2HH again,i can move files.

but once H2hh is run once,its a no go again.

happening with current CM-Helper and previous version of H2hh.

so?

Nothing similar here - I'm now running CMH 1.1.2 and it's moving files and so forth properly.

I did have something the other day when I opened and closed it a couple of times, then couldn't open it again because "it was already running". Checked Task Manager and there were 3 cmh.exe's active.

But that's only happened once.

I'm just using the one machine.

Let me expand on my issue, or should I say oddity as opposed to an issue, because everything is working fine. I get uploads/downloads and chat in both CMRT and CMBN (the only two games currently playing). It's cleaning the files in the out/in boxes. All is well.

It's just I get those sad face icons next to the CMBN games.

CMH-1_zps9f60b63c.jpg

I believe it is seeing all three loaded games. Or is there a problem becuase I have CMBN and a ghost "CM Battle For Normandy"?

CMH-2_zpsffbf7d58.jpg

And I'm not sure what you mean by the top of the log and the ID.

I go to Options show log window and I don't see any ID.

Is there another log I should be looking at?

Sorry for that post, was very late at night and I was very tired. This seems to happen a lot for some reason. Always seems to happen when file names get changed. I also found a double set of game folders on my machine which probably was causing part of the problem. I deleted that file and am setting up my games again. Also thanks for the help as always.

I"m going to get rid of those "ghost" rows (which are in fact saying "this is the information about the default install, which you don't have"), and see if this clears stuff up somewhat.

The sad face means that CMH doesn't know what _type_ of installation it is looking at, if it knows what type it is: it hasn't been able to work out (by looking at the files in the installation) whether its CMRT or CMBN or what.

This is confirmed by the fact that the screenie is saying "(Version not known)" where you have clicked on the row called CMBN.

The log file should tell us why it is sad about that.

About the log window: in the screenie you have shown, the log is scrolled right to the bottom. Try scrolling back up to the top :)

EDIT: I think I've found the bug causing the sad faces in this case. Delving into it now...

GaJ,

I'm still getting the same issue with the sad confused faces.

The screens look the same except I am now using CM Helper 1.2.3.

And under the opponents tab I now get the Red Thunder Icon.

Under the CM Installations it says Version Not Known for all three games.

Again, everything else works fine.

Hey Ted - I'll need a log from you. We definitely should work out what's going wrong, because either it will be something handy for you to fix up in your setup, or an actual bug in detecting the verison, which will be good to fix.

Help->Report Bug is probably the best way to get it to me (though email or PM is fine too :) )
