I'm working towards developing my own server that works with the stars client, as part of that I've been able to decode most of the structure used to display battles, as a test I've created my own battle, I've not written a proper battle engine yet but I hope to have an initial attempt working within 2-3 weeks, in the meantime to test I'll be able to display a battle in the m file successfully I've created a battle manually, I think it makes for an interesting battle, certainly something you wouldn't see stars perform.

Download the M file and XY file at http://stars.atlantissoftware.co.uk/gamex.zip to take a look

If anybody is interested in the actual structure contact me and I'll give you what I have, I'll probably have it written into one of my XML structure files over the weekend, it basically consist of 4 blocks, an header, token information & movement blocks which have 0 or more firing blocks for each target token and usually broken into individual shots for each slot

Did PaulCr ever wrap battle blocks (##31 and ##39) into his stars to xml converter? Does anybody have a copy of his xmls containing these blocks? Or may be somebody even know exac structure of the battle blocks? Smile

I guess he did, but the xmls he sent to me are just placeholders. Confused

I wouldn't mind seeing it either, and I have room enough in my webhotel space to put it where others can download it from a link I can post here, if you cannot supply a link.
