Title: ZWDS app
Post by: Gmuli on April 29, 2018, 02:09:19 AM
Here is Gmuli, Ogi and Tan ZWDS app.

Don't be sad if some function is missing. There will be more functions added with time I hope.

The app is actually very customizable, we can change the symbols for the brightness, the symbols for the Self Hua, size, color and the way arrows are displayed and other stuff.
Some of this is in the menu, Options.
 In general check around the Menu, there is a lot of customizable stuff, although some is just by adding files in the directory.

Other then that, how to use.


I will add the default tooltips file as well, you can write any definition of stars, brightness and transformers you want, but the structure should be the same or app may crush(all lines start and end with "", no empty lines etc). If that happens just delete the file, it doesn't need it to run.
Right now I have added mostly the names, so you can see how it shows, also for the main 14 stars few words from Arts topics.

For any extra file to be recognized by the app, just copy it in the same directory.
If you run it from your bazi app directory you can use same database(although keep in mind this is lunar calendar here).

Here we go:

Tooltips file:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/oxazov4722yb53x/tooltips.txt?dl=1 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/oxazov4722yb53x/tooltips.txt?dl=1)
P.S. I will check around what strings need to be translated for another language and will post when I can. Should be easy to implement, as long as someone can translate to another language all the strings. We have English and Chinese right now for stars, and I will add Bulgarian soon as well. : )
P.S.S. Bounce back has become buggy somewhere along the way, don't use it until fix(its disabled by default).
P.S.S.S. Keep in mind the Huas flying around is just in Flying Star, so if arrows are enabled(you click a stem) it switched from San He to Flying Star.

Was looking into some bugs, so fixed some other stuff on the way as well. So small update here.

Link is same as before.

Some update here. At the end of post will paste all strings used in the app, for translation.

What is new:
About the third part, this is so we have all 3 possible relations of palaces showing. We have Original. One Year and Original showing at the same time. One year and 10 Years showing at the same time.

This covers all that I have seen in the flying star ZWDS material I was looking at. Now may move to some more San He applications(the Na Yin is first step in there, actually).
(https://s6.postimg.cc/hhk1mgp9d/update1.png)

Here are all strings in English from the app. There is some more that aren't seen now, like formations etc. but this should be good starting point. If someone wants another language, just copy/paste this, replace the strings with the strings in another language and I can add.
Just keep the lines sequence, so there aren't missing lines/strings, if something doesn't need translation, don't delete it, just leave it on English/Pinyin, so I know where to set it later.

As many people asked about more stars, that seemed a good next step for the app.
While Flying Star part of the app is still the same, I added 59 more stars, so we have 83 stars in the San He part of the app, right now.
Translation is from ArtofFugue Images with all the stars(we still miss many there, but we have more then half now).
As the problems in showing them is still here, there are 2 alternative ways. Initially it will show the stars one on a line, with Pinyin and element.

So program starts, we press Alt+5(or Menu>System>San He) it will show it like this(with translation, below without):
(https://s6.postimg.cc/y2pddhw1d/screen0.png)
(https://s6.postimg.cc/62l9sz7xt/screen1.png)

Now, if we press Alt+2(or Menu>View>Language>English) it will switch to english and Alt+3(Menu>View>Language>Chinese(Pinyin) back to Chinese.

However, as that may make it difficult if someone wants complete view of all the stars there is one alternative way. That will show it without the element the star belongs to, but most of the time it will be all visible without the need to scroll down. Activated by Alt+W and looks like this:

(https://s6.postimg.cc/9yylp20o1/screen2.png)

Also removed things that were specifically from Tham's book. It seems there is disagreement about different ways to divide them(more in topics around the forum), so to avoid conflicts that part won't be there in this version(that is Ti/Yong and Feng Shui Palaces).

As this are a lot of stars there wasn't much testing done. Some of them have the same name in pinyin, so there may be problems there as well. So if you see bug or a problem send me a PM and I will see what I can do(that counts for all the apps).


Enjoy. : )

Small update for different types of void.

*Star 46 - 空亡 Kong Wang is calculated based on year stem/branch instead of Day as it was before.
*Added star 155 截空 Jie Kong calculated by birth year stem.
*Both of these stars will change their Palace depending on 10 year decade when Luck Pillar becomes clicked.

Hi @Gmuli

Superb app! I really love your app, the BaZi one too.

Currently, is the star brightness only available in Flying star system? Because I cannot see it in San He.
Also, is it possible to bold the 14 Major stars and put different colors for 6 harmful and 6 good stars, etc? So for a beginner like me, it is easy to see the structure quickly.
In my opinion, it would be good if we have a next and previous buttons for time of birth. So we can quickly change the chart if we are not sure about the person's time of birth.

Thank you very much for your work with this app!

Good choice! Just put the english translated name + chinese characters of the star would suffice.

Nice job! Just one more tip, for element of star, just use colour code! If a star has more than 1 element, use the primary element.

hi @Gmuli ,

senators613: Flying Star part of the app was based on 2 books.

"Flying Star Zi Wei Dou Shu Emperor Astrology" - Ng Choon Phong and Leonard Tham
"Zi Wei Dou Shu Stars of Life" - Lilian Heng

Both use 18 stars if I remember correctly and focus more on the flying aspect. I like it as an idea, the stars themselves aren't as important as flying.

As 18 are all stars needed to see what flies where the other ones aren't used there.
I'm trying to keep all different ways of names and amount of stars etc. As in the WWG app where we have all English sources I can think of added with only 1 exception. But in here there are much less books to work with and all books I know for FS ZWDS use 18 stars.
(maybe Lim uses more, I haven't finished it yet)

I get there are other schools and approaches. But I can't comment on that as I don't know enough about them.

ArtofFugue: Good idea. I will rework the San He part of the app someday. But I haven't been looking into ZWDS stuff for a while. When I'm back to that will continue Lims book and probably add more stuff from there too.

As lately I can't focus on the five arts as much as I would want, I'm not sure it will be in the near future, however.

Yea, kinda. 0 is the darkest, 3 is the brightest.
However this is just one way. We can use any symbol to show any brightness.

If you add this 4 symbols for example, in the directory of the app, it will show it same way as students of Joseph Yu use.

Hi Gmuli,

Thank you very much for sharing such a great software, really love it. By the way, I don't see any difference between Earth chart and Heaven chart, what is that? And it would be great if we can see annual palace together with decade and original palace.

By the way, I noticed the gender was not loaded when open a chart.

Regards,

Hi.
ZWDS App is on hold right now, as I'm working on PWS, XKDG, XKZR and some other apps and learning a few other systems including QMDJ, at the same time.
So may not be able to get to it again, in the upcoming months/years.
Considering there are some very nice free San He calculators and we cover the important part of the flying, it doesn't seem big priority either.

Heaven and Earth chart, if I remember correctly Earth chart was made around Body Palace of Heaven Chart. Also used less stars. But in general if you don't need it just ignore it.  :)

Post by: fan on October 18, 2018, 08:53:57 PM
Hi Gmuli,

Okay thanks for your response. Coincidentally I plotted a chart that has Body in Life palace, that's why it gives the same chart.  :D Good luck for your learning journey, hope the app can be developed again soon.  ;D

Hi.
I gave up on that one. 

I check the source for the 2 stars you mentioned, though. One of them is correct based on the material I had back then, it seems based on the Year Branch. If there is difference, they are calculating it in another way I guess.
The other one(Da Hao), I see it isn't showing, but it is calculating it(as there are 2 stars with pinyin similar to that one  and both doesn't seem to be showing, but both are calculating). So I'm guessing either the Palace has too many starts so it doesn't show it or there was some other bug. There seem to be Po Sui star that is showing, though.

The selector, I don't think it was suppose to find all the stars. The idea was if the app is developed with time to add the others I guess, I don't really remember, but yea, it probably will work just for a few.

In any case, would advice to use some other app/website, I'm very focused on Javascript/PHP lately, so the PC apps have become somewhat outdated.

I will remove the QMDJ, ZWDS and maybe the XKFX apps later today, so its a few hours window for members that want to check them to do so, before they are gone.
May repost them someday in very shortened way, although its likely I won't.
If there are still links to the XKDG app that will be gone too.

Why... Many reasons, mostly because when I started the apps was with the idea to be something for fun that I do for myself, then just decided to share it with the community. However, as its moving to a more open waters with the websites and all, no idea how much development there we will do, but it does seem fair to clear up old stuff that was mostly for my own use anyway, or implementations of ideas from people long gone from the forums like the 3 solstice method.

Will post it in the both forums.


Feel free to remove the topic as well after the link is gone. : )
I'm not in the forums a lot currently, so if something comes up can find me on mail.

Title: Re: ZWDS app
Post by: Gmuli on July 05, 2019, 02:21:25 PM
Well... Its gone now, but it used to be 1900-2100 or something around there.
There is a reason most apps using the Lunar Calendar will use that range. While the Solar Calendar wasn't implemented in most libraries I'm aware of, so we had to write it from nothing, the Lunar calendar is implemented by Microsoft in Visual Studio.
While on that topic its nice to add that the Solar Class I posted here wasn't very good, it was what I knew back when I started, but if you want to write something like that just use Suns longitude, it will be much simpler as well.

Anyway, back on the Lunar Calendar, the problem there is that Microsoft made it 1900-2100. So anyone that wants to use that calendar had to decide - rewrite the calendar from nothing, or just use that range.

While most of the calendar just uses the position of the Moon, the leap months seem to be based on very uncomfortable for calculation rules. At least from the little I saw when checking for it, as very few of the apps back then were using Lunar.

So I decided to use the already implemented one and that is 1900-2100. Most programmers will do the same I'm guessing. So for bigger range I would check websites, as the libraries there are a lot more diverse. But for PC app, its very likely most apps would use that range as that is the already integrated calendar by Microsoft and I doubt many will fully rewrite it by themselves. )
