SZS Change Log


1.   Current working copy (not released)

 - Bug fix: If creating a LPAR file, a parameter with name ITEM-CHEATS was
   printed. But tool wlect accepts only ITEM-CHEAT (without leading 'S').

2.   szs v2.24a r8414 - 2021-04-07

 - The tools support a configuration file now to define different paths.
   Therefor the file "wiimms-szs-tools.conf" is searched in different
    - Option --config=file allows to define a specific config file.
    - Command CONFIG (available for all tools) prints an information about
      searching and the final settings.
    - wszst CONFIG can export configuration settings for scripts.

 - Speedometer settings changed. It is either disabled or enabled with or
   without fraction (up to 3 digits).

 - wlect option --speedometer=modus accpets now parameters OFF, AUTO, ON,

 - LE-CODE supports debug output while racing. LPAR parameter DEBUG, LPAR
   sections [DEBUG-*] and wlect option --debug define the output format.
   See for details.

 - Wiimm's Item Cheat has been integrated into LE-CODE. It is enabled by a
   LPAR setting and supports Wiimote+Nunchuk, Classic Controller and GCN
   Controller for all 4 regions.

 - Bug fix for CT-CODE/LE-CODE configuration file: In v2.21a command 'S' was
   modified to accept 16 bit slot numbers. And here a copy bug is fixed now.

 - Mac: Universal binaries for i386, x86_64 and arm64.

3.   szs v2.23a r8357 - 2021-02-03

 - Bug fix for option --le-define=FILE, if FILE is a lecode binary. In this
   case, the special functions of chat messages are copied now.

 - wszst ANALYSE: Detection of additional files (like ObjFlow.bin) that have
   not been changed.

 - MAC support improved.

4.   szs v2.22a r8323 - 2020-12-26

 - KMP/AREA: The table layout of text output changed. Therefor parameter
   @REVISION is important to select the correct scanning mode.

 - KMP/AREA: Detection of "Conditional Out of Bounds".

 - Bug fix for tool wlect: Coping/Moving/Linking source file with options
   --copy-tracks, --move-tracks and --link-tracks failed for *_d.files.

5.   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.

    - 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.

6.   szs v2.20a r8279 - 2020-10-03

   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.

9.   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.

   find missed files. This has impact to command CHECK and option --auto-add.

11.   szs v2.16a r8184 - 2020-04-09

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

 - 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
