Captains log View Mod
Screenshot **NOTE** this version is obsolete. Get Captain's Log v3.1 HERE:


A captain's log / journal

It lets you type notes to yourself within the game and keeps a running log of all of them, with the system that each note was written in.

Works with or without dockscreen framework.

Don't just drop it all in the extensions folder, some files included conflict with each other or other mods, see readme for details.

Updated, now supports a "backspace" key.

re-uploaded Jan 12, 2010. backspace is much more useful now that you can add onto an existing entry without creating a new line, also changed "Cancel" to "Done" on the delete page.

Sadly, this doesn't seem to work with RC8. Just gives a bunch of commands in the area on the right.

I don't get that problem, can you link to a screenshot?

Upon closer inspection, it seems to work well once one has input an entry. Before that point, with no entries in the log, it seems the code hiccups and displays "Exception in scrGetListEntry; arg = (gScreen) (gScreen) ### scrGetListEntry gScreen) ###"

It is not, as I stated, related to 1.0RC8. Rather, it seems to be either an initialization issue or an off-by-one error that happens when theres nothing to display.

Actually, upon CLOSER inspection it does this every time I open the log. It works fine, and is mainly a cosmetic error.

Fixed. The problem was in the DSF advertiser ("external interface" launch method only). Other than that one line of text is slightly different in this update.

And it's sleeker and sexier too, by 2 whole kB. Bobby, you're the man.

Does not work in 104. System names do not appear, shows *NIL* instead and stations aren't listed. Can you update this mod? Please? I can't play without it. I'm space.

Would love for you or someone else to update this...
