#77 confirmed task

Identify purpose of unknown parts of Army Builder .ab files

Reported by: ibboard Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Army Builder file support plugin 0.2
Component: ArmyBuilder-Support-API Version: Unknown or N/A
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


Some parts of the .ab files are either stored as "unknowns" or are given a guessed value. Where possible we need to identify what the values actually are (since they must do something) and update the API.

Change History (6)

  • Rename "UnknownNumber" to "UniqueID" based on data in "update XML" files

Remove owner so that the team can more easily see bugs. Using default owners seems good at first but is bad practice when a team can be working on any part of the project.

Move tickets to new "confirmed" status to show that they've been checked

All "first bytes" seen appear to be identical and may relate to compression and decompression (4 bytes each), if the brochure provides an accurate structure.

All "end bytes" seem to start 00 00 and end 00 08, which could also be constants.

Somewhere in there each file should have a crc32 number (middle bytes or mid-chunk of end bytes?)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
