AToM

First Things First (I like this expression, so amusingly meaningless). Yes, AToM is in the Windows Store for quite some time already. I just didn’t have the time to write anything about it yet.
Now that I finished my last exam I’ll write down some information and tutorials on how to use AToM to its full potential.

Haven’t heard of AToM?
Well that’s a shame. But don’t worry your life doesn’t have to stay as miserable as it is right now*. Click here to learn more about AToM!

Anyway note the 15.08.2014  in your calendar as the birthday of the app that makes your life full. And yes I’m just writing this so I won’t forget it myself ;)

Expect some tutorials on how to use AToM (How to add music to your library, how to filter your songs using regular expressions, etc) in the next days.

* That’s obviously a joke. I’m sure your life is great!

Game of Thrones – Ascent – OmniSword Chrome Extension

Current Version: 1.4.2

Got another response from Nod.
He left the choice whether or not I’ll continue working on this extension to me.
He just asked me to warn you:

All third-party software is used at their own risk and against our [Disruptor Beams]
Terms of Service.

I don’t know of any bans yet. If you got banned because of this extension please let me know in the comments or send me an E-Mail.
Use this extension on your own risk!

Quick note:

If you like this extension, share it with your friends and your guild :D
(Here’s a shortlink: http://bit.ly/10Q99Mf)

Info:

Disruptorbeam changed the Game of Thrones Game. They now have their own accounts and since this extension only works on the “real” Game of Thrones – Ascent website, people who played that game with their facebook account have to go to the “real” website (simply click on the extension’s icon), click on “Already playing on facebook?” and follow the instructions.

Hopefully fixed the bugs you where experiencing.
I’m sorry that it took so long. Was really busy working on my first Windows 8 App and got exams in two weeks.

Changelog:

  • Bug Fix
  • Closing the sending dialog now cancels the sending process as soon as possible

Got  a PC running Windows 8.1?
Check out my new project AToM

Update 1.4.2:

  • Adds an optional Save Mode where a custom random time is waited between each step of sending out a sworn sword (Sending out one sworn sword is around 3-4 steps)

If you want to change the duration or whether the save mode should be on or not, navigate to the folder where Chrome stores extensions (the path on a Windows machine: “%APPDATA%/Local/Google/Chrome/User Data/Default/Extensions/{ID}/{version}/” You can find the ID of the extension at chrome://extensions. The store version’s ID is: lhboojbdjddolappgccideokjmgnejll)
Open swornswords.js and change the values to whatever you want. It should be obvious there which variables to change.
Change USE_LOCALSTORAGE_WAITING to false if you want to change the min and max waiting time.

Update 1.4.1 now in Chrome Webstore

  • Extension is now in the Chrome Webstore
  • Fixed the result dialog (sworn swords are now displayed correctly)

WindowsControl now in Alpha

One of my current projects (WindowsControl) reached Alpha status.
The Alpha is open so everyone who wants to can check it out.
Please report all bugs you encounter and give me feedback.

But first I’ll tell you a little bit about it:
WindowsControl is meant to be a tool which interpretes controller input to make it possible to control your Windows PC solely with a controller without the need of a mouse and keyboard.
This could come in handy if your PC is connected with your TV and you wanna sit on the couch and watch series or play games without standing up every time you want to change the game, start the next episode etc.
It is not meant as a mapping tool that allows to use a controller for games that do not support controllers (although it’s your choice if you want to do that).

Since it is only an alpha, not everything is working like it should.
Especially the 64bit version is buggy so even if you’re using a 64bit OS I’d recommend to try the 32bit version first.
The program is free to use but I might add a premium version when and if it ever reaches final status (everyone who helped to develop it will get the premium version for free).

32bit version (Recommended)
64bit version (Experimental)

It is not allowed to distribute the setup, parts or the whole program without my permission.

The program uses SlimDX.
