I'm working on a way to automate the program even further, so you don't have to select options every time you run it. Hopefully this will make it easier to adjust to the program.
It's just a matter of getting through the learning curve of how to meld the new system with the spreadsheet. From the runs I've done it's a massive time saver, even if you can't implement the addition (below).
Hrm...what do you mean by vagrant? I'm working on a way to have the program indicate if a profile is an error profile (deleted or not validated).
Vagrants are people who have been validated, but have not made a profile. shak3s is the classic one for the XP list, but the change in the BBS layout has at least made his total XP available to be checked. There's no way to tell where he is on the BP list (if at all) as he does not have a profile from which to garner his blams or protects.
I'll do a test run of the top 100 or so, where I have no gaps, and see what I can do with the output. ~7 or so I'll run it through.Good luck! Shouldn't take very long to run ;-)
Quite speedy =) I did a run each on blams and protects to see how it worked out. The difference is likely just due to a change in the load on the net, but still it's very impressive.
Blams: 4 minutes 58 seconds = 5.74/sec
Saves: 10 minutes 39 seconds = 2.68/sec
As it's writing to a .txt, the safest way for me to run and insert the data, unless you allow the capability to have multiple output files, is to run the different stat separately. If it spits out two columns of numbers, C&P to Excel will try and put each line in one cell.
One feature that "needs" to be added is the ability to check for rank, experience or BP. It's more an issue for me, due to the volume of gaps I still have, but still important for ramagi. In my case, without that added, I'll have to fill a series for the BP rank, then spot check my way down the list to make compensations. My first gap on the last update is at 158, which means that on line 158 of the Excel, I need to change it to 159, then fill series again. At ranks 232 and 234 are the next blanks, and so on. By the time I get into the 400s, I'll start having to pull all the profiles to extract the correct BP rank as the row vs rank will be off by so much.
Need is in quotes for obvious reasons. It's still a huge time saver as it stands.
Much thanks for your work on this!!My pleasure. It's nice to make something that people actually appreciate. That's all the reward I need.
Off to test out 1.1 (/me keeps 1.0 stashed away ^^)
