SZS Change Log


1.   szs v2.21a r8311 - 2020-11-30

 - Windows only: 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Cygwin are supported now.
   The 64 bit version is recommended.
    - 32 bit version: Cygwin DLL 3.0.7 / 2019-04-30
    - 64 bit version: Cygwin DLL 3.1.7 / 2020-08-22

 - Support of LE-CODE build 25:
    - Speedometer support for LPAR-files.
    - New option for wlect: --speedometer=off/on

 - Again fewer program crashes when reading faulty SZS files. 

 - BMG supports little endian files now, but only encoding UTF-8 was checked.
   I need example files to verify other encodings (CP-1252,UTF-16,SHIFT-JIS).

 - KCL/OBJ: Faces with any number of vertices are accepted now. Before there
   was a limit of 50 vertices.

 - Bug fix for CT-CODE/LE-CODE configuration file: Command 'S' stored a slot
   number as single byte, so that only values between 0 and 255 were possible.

2.   szs v2.20a r8279 - 2020-10-03

 - Time stamps of the files are now managed in nanoseconds instead of seconds.

 - wszst ANALYSE: New result "warn=": Print warnings about Item Position Bug
   and self linked item routes with 1 point.

 - wszst CHECK: Hints about unusual TEX version 1 are suppressed now if option
   --verbose is not set.

 - Fewer program crashes when reading faulty SZS files. 

3.   szs v2.19b r8243 - 2020-08-03

 - Bug fix for wlect LPAR: Message functions are not longer printed twice.

4.   szs v2.19a r8237 - 2020-08-01

 - Bug fix: Tool wlect didn't read the second chat message functions from
   binary LE-CODE files.

 - Support of an old GameCube BMG variant (internally named "legacy").

 - Check minimap: Bones 'posRU' and 'posLD' are detected even if the root bone
   is renamed. This suppresses wrong warnings.

5.   szs v2.18a r8217 - 2020-06-28

 - wszst/wkmpt CHECK: Hints about self linked item routes and item routes with
   exact 1 point. A warning is printed when both events apply for same route.

 - Bug fix: The number of tables is set to 6 if writing a short binary
   item-slot file (without tables for battles).

 - wszst TEXT/BINARY: New options to patch KMG files: --kmg-limit=seconds to
   limit the run time of battles and --kmg-copy=id to copy one slot definition
   to the 9 other slots.

 - Leseratte and I analysed the MKW internal VR calculations and adapted the
   results into the tools. So the calculations are 100% identical now.

 - Command wszst VR-RACE supports now up to 30 players for the VR calculation.

 - KMP/CAME type 6 and the related route is excluded from any transformation.

6.   szs v2.17a r8204 - 2020-05-12

 - Command wszst DISTRIBUTION: New track attribute FILL to mark a track as
   filler (some tracks are needed to fill the last cups).

 - LPAR BLOCK-TRACK: Block previously used tracks for the next 0-50 races.

 - LPAR: More chat messages and up to 2 modes for each chat message.

 - Object files of CommonObj*.szs are included into the internal object
   library and added to auto-add library.

 - Objects 'VolcanoPiece', 'bblock' and 'RM_ring1': Setting #1 is evaluated to
   find missed files. This has impact to command CHECK and option --auto-add.

7.   szs v2.16a r8184 - 2020-04-09

 - All commands, that create LPAR files, accept option --no-header (-H) and
   option --brief (-B) now.

 - More built-in explanations in new LPAR files.

8.   szs v2.15a r8176 - 2020-04-03

 - KTPT is not longer used to find values outside range +-131071 where items
   can not be used online.

 - Text parser: Fixed different bugs for data type 'string'.

 - Slot recommendations now ignore the objects deactivated by presence flags.

 - Chat in private rooms: Each special function can be assigned to any chat
   message, and also to more than 1 message. Before, the function werde hard
   coded to some messages. Current modes:
    - Host selects track.
    - Karts or bikes only.
    - Force engine class.
    - Select number of races between 1 and 512.

 - Support of new text file format LPAR to manage LE-CODE parameters by file
   instead of options. This includes the support of the new parameters for
   chat message modes:
    - wlect CREATE lpar: Create a standard LPAR text file.
    - wlect LPAR: Read LE-CODE binary and export the parameters as LPAR file.
    - wlect DUMP: New section for "Special chat messages".
    - Option --lpar: Read a LPAR file to patch the current settings.

9.   szs v2.14a r8160 - 2020-02-29

 - KMP text processor: Settings of definition objects are printed in hex now.

 - Bug fix for KMP text parser: It created incorrect conditions if definition
   objects were defined in combination with $DISABLE or $ENABLE commands.

 - Bug fix for wstrt option --add-section=GCT: Crashed for some invalid cheat
   codes (Cygwin only).

 - Recommendation for option --shift item pos factors (LEX:SET1) optimized.

 - wimgt COPY: Option --overwrite is set implicitly now.

10.   szs v2.13a r8146 - 2020-02-15

 - XPF: Added support for negation flag of references to definition objects.

 - New keywords for option --kmp:
    - RM-LECODE: Remove all objects from section GOBJ, that are only relevant
      for LE-CODE. The result is a minimized section for standard code.
    - PURGE-GOBJ: Remove all objects from section GOBJ that are neither a
      valid object nor a definiton object for LE-CODE.

 - wszst ANALYSE + Check KMP: Analysis of KTPT, ENPT and ITPT to find values
   outside range +-131071 where items can not be used online. Additionally a
   recommendation for using option --shift and/or LEX section SET1 is printed.

11.   szs v2.12b r8135 - 2020-02-09

 - Bug fixes for LEX parser:
    - Section TEST: Parameter @ENGINE wasn't implemented.
    - Symbols LEX$OO_AUTO and LEX$GM_AUTO were not defined.

 - New option: --lex-purge: Delete LEX sections without any impact. Delete
   sub-file course.lex if it no longer contains a section.

 - Tool wstrt option --clean-dol: HTTPS modifications are now also reset.

12.   szs v2.12a r8129 - 2020-02-07

 - Parser: Bug fix for shift-right operator if shifted value is an integer.

 - If using --force or --kmp=force, the KMP scanner ignores the size stored in
   the file header and uses the file size instead.

 - New command: wkmpt diff: Compare the KMP of two or more sources (KMP,
   KMP-text or SZS). Each KMP will be converted into the internal format,
   fixed and patched controlled by options. The known sections are compared,
   some of them sorted before.

 - New option to support wkmpt diff: --diff=list: List of KMP sections names
   that should be compared. Additional keywords possible.

 - New option to support wkmpt diff: --epsilon=float: When comparing floating
   point numbers, 2 numbers are considered identical if their difference is
   less than or equal to epsilon.

 - New option: --repair-xpflags: Load a KMP file and use it to repair the
   settings of the extended presence flags, if they are destroyed by another
   KMP tool. --repxpf is a short cut for this option.

 - Option --auto-add was broken for objects, if flags (bits 10-12) were set.
   Bit 12 is used by extended presence flags (XPF).

 - Support of random selections of KMP/GOBJ objects:
    - 6 random scenarios supported.
    - New keyword for option --gamemodes: RANDOM.
    - Command wkmpt GAMEMODES can list and command wszst DUPLICATE can create
      up to 1573 variants now.
    - Added a LEX/TEST parameter to force a random mode for testing.

 - New LEX section SET1 for various settings. The first parameter defines 3
   factors to increase the range for items outside -131071 and +131071.

 - New LEX section HIPT: Define places, where the position tracker is hidden.
