    character build optimizer finishing touches

    Post by somebody_else on Mon Feb 13, 2012 1:22 pm

    last design (completely changed selectors)
    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
    preferences (selection of list flat|grouped maxed only|grouped all upgrades and icon size)
    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
    armor list (flat)
    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
    armor list (sorted light=no poise, heavy=poise)
    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
    armor list (detailed upgrades)
    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
    weapon selector in action (detailed list and with active provisional values for stats)
    http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

    only 4 things are remaining as unfinished now
    - accurate per weapon diminished stats (calculated from bonus, not hard lined per upgrade. this means much more optimized warnings)
    - finishing stats view
    - personal defense per level, but this one will probably never see the light of day. my schedule became really hectic on account of the new project i'm working on and i really don't have the time to reverse engineer math for 712 levels of defense stats or collect data. this requires way too much time that i don't have
    - testing on different systems (since no one wanted to help testing... i'll finish up and do work my self)

    so, unless miracle happens and people actually contribute stats for all levels (or ask people that made dark souls calculator if they allow that i port their values, but unless i get approval i don't want to do more than look at it, which i did and saw it would take me 2-3 hours to port it into app).

    It looks like you put a lot of hard work into this.

    It looks more visually pleasing than other calculators out there, and if you're truly working on this alone, it must have taken forever. I can't wait to use a finished version.

    if you mean about copying defense stats from there...
    as i said, i did looked at that. they use hard specified values which would require me to copy them (2-3 hours). but, since i didn't saw any link where i could ask for that, i do not plan to do that without explicit permission. but, if anyone asks for permission i'd incorporate it. i reversed all data by my self and don't plan to start stealing at the end

    otherwise... seeing that calculator left me so unimpressed that i started working on this one. not to mention it only works in freaking MS office which i don't have since i use linux. but my app is crossplatform.

    I mentioned it not to copy it, but to help you check your calculations. Kinda like a reference.

    ahh, ok, my bad;) all the rest i checked/collected against the game. but, leveling twice or more to 712 (to get res/fth boosts correctly) is something so time consuming that i can't afford currently. i started on new contract software that pays my bread and time frame to finish it is already short. currently i'm happy if i find time for 1 or 2 PvP sessions per day beside putting finishing touches on this app.

    lack of time and such complex task is why i said i'm willing to implement defense stats if anyone is willing to risk his time to find contact and get approval from original authors so i could copy that data without disrespecting anyones work.

    one task down
    - automatically detected diminishing values per each weapon upgrade level (+0..+15) now specify values which are correct per its bonus. if bonus is too small diminishing is reported sooner.

    non specified tasks that were done

    also added
    - auto optimizing per equipment where you can either choose your primary and optimize that weapon or optimize per complete set
    - url bar with clipboard support (load your char, click copy and paste on forum, anyone that copies that url from browser into his clipboard can simply select load and from clipboard to get exact character you posted)

    added one show stopper task before release
    - arrows and bolts selection so bows and xbows report correct damage

    example of my 180 character (with exposed new features)

    added address quick paste from URL.

    http://someaddress/?Name=Unknown&Class=Bandit&Ring1=RNG_37&Ring2=RNG_25&Head=HEAD_21_05&Body=BODY_16_10&Hand=HAND_23_05&Leg=LEG_22_05&L1=WPN_007NOR15&L2=WPN_121NOR05&R1=WPN_042NOR00&R2=WPN_037NOR05&Vit=70&Att=0&End=40&Str=27&Dex=40&Res=0&Int=8&Fth=50&Hum=0&WHP=0&WAS=4&WSpeed=2&DH=True&Casts=CAST_30;CAST_45;CAST_46;CAST_65

    this way same url will be compatible with both, standalone app and web counterpart. click url and get it in browser, copy url and paste it to standalone

    this address produces pasting of my sl180 in previous post (screenshot). i just need to check if this address is web compatible for later web interface. compatibility will require working dns name for stability. and it will probably change some basics

    arrow and bolt selector finished.

    only stats and testing on other os than linux remain as unfinished.
