Good news, I reached a point I think the new Online version of PointBlank is ready to let people play with. Before I create a general announcment here and on other forums about its availability, I'd like to have people give it some stress testing to see if there are any remaining bugs or problems I've missed.
It is accessable by registered members, from the Modules menu on the left if the page, or directly from this link: www.huntingnut.com/ind...lankOnline
How its SUPPOSED to work:
When you first visit it, you will see a title message followed by the data fields that must be filled out, they should all be blank except for Temperature and Elevation which I pre-loaded with default data.
Enter in your data and hit Compute, if you have any bad values, values outside of the specified ranges, it will redraw this menu with the incorrect values highlighed in light red. A red message is also displayed explaining there is a problem with the data.
If the data is correct, the server takes a moment to calculate the ballistics and output them as both a dynamic graphic as well as tabulated data. By default the tabulated data shows all 1000 yards of the trajectory, to show less rows from the Data entry menu you can change it to 1,5,10,25,50,100 yard increments.
Once a trajectory has been successfully computed, you can press Compute New Trajectory and it will return you to the Data entry screen BUT, it should have all your last variables used preloaded into the fields! I Found this to be very useful. In fact the last variables used by a specific person are stored and will automatically be preloaded the next time you visit PointBlankOnline.
Now for bug testing: You can email me or you can reply to this post if you notice any strange behavior or error messages. Errors will most probably be due to file opening errors. Copy the error and either post it here or in an email to me.
If you guys have time, try lots of ranges, variations etc etc. If you have a copy of the downloaded PointBlank double check some of the values against it.
If you see something really wierd, you can take a screen shot of it and email it to me (if you dont know how to do that dont worry about it). I think overall its pretty stable and there shouldnt be too many issues. After a few days of testing we can announce it.
