    August 01 2015. Current Version 0.011. Run program MUST now have the channel and avatar name filled. The name must be the full name of the avatar (name nickname surname). The map can be updated via chat, you can make a new advanced filter to call the “addLocation.vbs” script, using this instructions:

    addLocation.vbs must be invoked with parameters without quotes and separated with spaces. The mandatory parameters are

    -Map name, a name from the planets.csv file
    -Location, the coordinates provided from the game in the same format provided EG [latitude,longitude,altitude]
    -Type of location, there are some predefined types, here is the list, the names are case sensitive:
    “POI” stands for Point Of Interest, like a nice landscape, building or similar remarkable in world things, like the Gamer Chick Memorial.
    -Descriptive text, a text describing the location must be quoted EG “This is a nice location”.
    From here all parameters are optional and can be surrounded by quotes in order to be stored as one single data field, otherwise they will be treated as separate parameters.

    So to call addlocation fron the chat in order to add a location, if youv’e defined a run program filter like “addcoords PARSEPARS”, tou must type in your selected commands channel

    addcoords Arkadia [lat,lon,height] POI "A nice view in Arkadia"

    If all went well you can hear t sucess message, if the coordinate hasn’t been added there be a spoken failiure message. After that you can refresh the map by pressing the refresh map, selecting it at the dropdown menu or via chat if you started the monitoring in the ETMaps.hta program and typing showmap “Name_of_the_map” you want to view.


    Teleport coords in Calypso are updated, some locations are added to Thule, also Arkadia have some locs added. Currently I’m working in a more detailed map of Arkadia.

    The next update of ETail will be the last alpha, it has been running some time and it will have the last featured added, editable and selectable options with the capability of selecting one or more logs to monitor. A little script for updating a spreadsheet will be added, finishing the addons I’ve planned for the first complete version of ETail. Only bugfixes will be done to the beta until the compiled version of the program is finished.

    ETMaps will have several updates until it reaches it’s final form. And will have it’s onw entry and installers.

    Advanced filters

    0.010. Advanced filters saved will be loaded at the start. Maps now are an external script that can be called either via chat command, as a normal hta in the explorer or from the maps tab. The new maps script is still not fully functional and will be treated as a new project. Locations will be compatible with Entropia Maps data.

    19 16 July 2015: V0.09. Corrected a bug that loaded always the saame advanced filters configuration.

    16 July 2015: V0.09:The main chat file is processed now by a compiled C++ executable in order to avoid the VBScript limitations in processing text files. Now the logfile can be bigger than 39MB without performance issues.The main chat.log file is processed now by a compiled C++ executable in order to avoid the VBScript limitations in processing text files. Now the logfile can be bigger than 39MB without performance issues. There are two different versions, 0.09 is for 8 and later OS, and 0.09b can be run in windows XP32 and similar. The executable of the 8 versions is smaller, but it will need VC++2013 redistributable packages. <span style=”font-size: 14pt;”>The 0.09b version it’s suposed to run in all OS form XP32 to 8.1 x64,</span> although I’ve only trested it in 8 x64 and XP x32.

    Compressed file had a wrong etail_filters.con file, corrected.


    8 July 2015: Several bugfixes. Advanced filters completed, now you can select a channel, an avatar and three different strings to make the filter. Advanced filters has a new action, execute a program, two vbs scripts, a countdown timer and a basic calculator are added, in this post is a brief explanation on how to use the Advanced actions filters and the execute program action.

    Since the program has now more that 2k lines, most of them jsut for the gui, and the windows debugger is very slow, bug tracking and fixing will be very slow. Sorry for the inconveniencies, it’s my fault for using VBScript ofr testing the capabilities of windows.

    18 May, 2015 @ 15:45:15  Saved and loaded filters are remembered now in the dialog box and updated in the configuration file. Autoscroll can be interrupted. Started advanced filters. Started maps management using Openseadragon. This will be a buggy update. Since VBScript can’t use file dialogs for saving files, plans for a save dialog with file list will be posponed to a future implementation in Mono or C++.

    9 May, 2015 @ 22:45:15 Added a little arrow to show the monitor status. Load and save filters is now functional. Added an option to select if seraches will be case sensitive or not. Normal filters management is now complete. Next will be advanced filters and CSV output.

    8 May, 2015 @ 19:45:15 Added output results to file. Changed Popup alerts in order to permit the monitor keep runnig. Made a custom DHTML dialog, fucntional but crappy.

    6 May, 2015 @ 12:00:07 Add Filter and Delete Filter functions added. Undo behaviour fails if more than one filter is added at a time. UTF-8 fancy chars now show correctly in the monitor tab.

    Added regular expressions example to the included ETail_filters.conf file

    4 May, 2015 @ 23:00:07 Filters editing and save done.

    3 May, 2015 @ 18:51:07 Dinamic change of controls in filters management tab. Optimization of CPU usage by comparing file size.

    03/05/2015 Finished filters tab formatting, still not functional.

    03/05/2015 Added some filters by Hipatia.

    02/05/2015 Corrected bad config creation.
