The tool works and starts. Loading a .wts file also worked and displayed the information well. It would be even better if you could add opening map files directly instead of having to manually extract the file yourself.

    Could you send me that not working wts File.

    Edit: there could be are alot of reason for this.
    • Insufficent User rights.
    • File not found/can not read, which should produce an error trace.
    • the wts format is different then expected, I based that application on the observerd format of the german/english version which was equal with some minor local replacements (like "fähigkeit:" vs "ability:").
      • An String is detected by its comment if your wts file does not have such comments it won't be detected.
      • // Fähigkeiten: A02T (Spalter), Researchtip (Tooltipp - Erlernen)
      • if a line starts with "//", the application will parse the objectId relative to ":".
    Try starting over "start.bat". That will open an commandline terminal, if the wts file could not be read it will print an error message when opening it.

    You could also try draging and droping the wts onto the start bat, might works for ya.


    Edit: Updated WTSObserver to WTSObserver 1.2
