Turn Results Parser
#21
It currently tracks population centers, emissaries, and groups.
The population centers show up as a V, T, or C in the proper square.
Other options will highlight squares where certain groups or emissaries are.
And clicking on a square will show you what is there (depending on your selection, it will show everything that has ever been there, the last known information about anything that has ever been there, or only what we know is there for the current turn.

I have not added artifacts to the parser (and therefore the GUI), but that is just because I have not gotten around to it yet.
Same for unusual encounters. I'll make them both a priority.

Do we know what OS most people run? Windows/Mac/Linux? I'm curious if anyone has installed Ruby and gotten the parser to run for them yet.

OK, it now handles artifacts. It also parses the stuff out of the "Encounters of Note" section.

Since the parser and gui need to stay together due to changes in the output files, I've deleted the individual files and am making a zip available.

Parser 0.1.0

Here is another video on it.

Please tell me that the AN is the only position which has a CONSUL instead of a KING or REGENT. Are there any other positions that have something other than a KING?

The AN have three Consuls, that all have king like powers. No other kingdom has one.
I played when it cost .22 cents to mail my turn to NC.
Avid forum reader, I have read it all.

Yeah, and the little buggers can move too. That is the most recent bug I found. As it turns out, one of the hardest things to parse out of the turn results is the kingdom they are for. The name on the first page must be a graphics or something because the pdf_reader does not give it to me. So I have to get it from the "Activities of the Royal Court:" section. Luckily, the king/regent/consuls appear before any other emissaries. Since kings don't move, I would use the owner of the pop center where the King was as the kingdom. When I first encountered an AN turn, I got a little paranoid that some other kingdom might have a consul too, so I added an extra check. That is, if I found a CONSUL, I'd make sure the kingdom of that pop center belonged to the AN. That worked great until I hit an AN turn where they moved. So now I'm stuck just assuming that if I see CONSUL, then that means I'm parsing an AN turn results. Hence my question. I'd have been hozed if another kingdom used CONSULs too.

Thanks for the info!

If the AN loses the last of his consuls, he will get a Regent...

But the Regent will be in an AN pc, right? If so, I'm OK.

I'm not going to try to handle the case where a kingdom has no pop centers and/or the 'King' is in someone else's pc. It is pretty easy to edit the parsed results to add the kingdom manually. Tongue

Latest updates to the tool that noone will use Smile

Aside from bug fixes, it now uses the real Alamaze-Resurgent map instead of those plain colored squares. Plus it is zoomable (via Control+UpArrow and Control+DownArrow).

Why do I post demo videos? Hubris? Maybe Angel But mostly so that people do not have to mess with installing Ruby just to see what it does.

TurnParser-0.2.0
Demo Video

Changes between 0.1.0 and 0.2.0
- Now has a button to show Regional Stats
- Now has a button to show all groups
- Added color and other formatting to the text box
- Finally fixed the scrollbars
- Updated to use the real Alamaze map.

If you want to email me step-by-step instructions that a non-technically-oriented accountant can sort out, I'll give it a go.

There should be (untested) step-by-step instructions in the zip. HOWEVER, I've not looked at them in a long time and they only really covered how to run the parser, not the GUI.

I'll try to put something together tonight.
