What works

Install seems to go smoothly for the base TroopMaster.  I downloaded from the website (prior owner has the installation disk), entering the unit and license key when prompted.

 Database works.  E-mail function works.

What does not

When opening TroopMaster (with no existing database file to work with), the window loses focus and I can not regain focus.  Animations continue, but unresponsive to keyboard and mouse.

Tried killing the process and restarting.  Same response.

After some period of time (or an unknown and accidental keystroke sequence from me), theprogram issued a popup window for Tip of the Day.  I closed it, and then the "Database Conversion Instruction" window appeared.  I closed that, and the program shut down.  Wine is still running, however, according to the console and top command.

Had to disable the background animation to get things to work.

 DotNet function has same problem noted for other distributions.

i am willing to take suggestions and spelling and grammar checks (spelling and grammar is not my forte)

if you find that anything is not working, report it

moving water causes TM to seem to hang

When you first install TroopMaster, the background is of an outdoor scene with moving water. Sometimes this causes to program to peg the CPU. This background is the file 'troopmaster.gif' in the "Troopmaster Software\TM4" directory. There is another background without moving called with filename 'troopmaster.jpg'. If you are having this problem, do the following:

 1. rename troopmaster.gif to some temporary name, like troopmaster.tmp.

 2. rename troopmaster.jpg to troopmaster.gif

3. rename the temporary troopmaster.tmp to troopmaster.gif

4. Now that you've reversed the two background files, Troopmaster should start up with no moving background, and the program should be responsive. You can now change the Preferences to use still water:


Select 'Background' tab

click button "Watercolor with still water" (This is troopmaster.jpg)

5. Now name the files back as they were originally.
