    Default Chronos - Free Global Timer Software

    Hey guys.

    I've been working on some global timer software for some time now. I mentioned it in open channel on my server a few months back and the idea of having free global timer software piqued the interest of a few people, so here it is.

    Originally this software started out as a shitty global timer program for my guild, but as I learned more and more C#, it was rewritten about 4 times and ended up being this.

    I'm going to make it available for testing and feedback over the next couple of days and in the meantime I'll flesh out the blog with some tutorials and things. Keep in mind that Chronos is currently a prototype while I figure out features and exactly what people want implemented in the software. I'll then go ahead and do a complete code rewrite with everything I've learned and it will enter into beta.

    I wouldn't say it's ready for general use, but if you want to really put it through its paces then I can't stop you. I'm really looking for solid testing and feedback right now. I no longer lead raids in Lost Legion, otherwise I would have probably kept it in-house for a little longer, but there's only so much testing I can do with me and myself.

    Here's a link to the blog if you'd like to check out the screenshots and things:

    Chronos Development

    Screenshots can be found in the "About Chronos" section. Like I said, the first publicly available builds of the software will be up over the next couple of days.

    Initial thoughts are welcome here on Flames.

    Thanks.

    PS. Works with pretty much any game that uses a text based log file. Not just EQ2.

    Just to let everyone know, the prototype Chronos client and server applications are available to download as of yesterday. I also made 3 video tutorials, two of which are currently available on the website under the "Tutorials" link to the right of the blog and should help you get started. The third tutorial will be coming tonight.

    Thanks!
