It’s Alive!

Way back when, in the mists of time *cough* 3 years ago *cough* I said I was putting together an app that would bring together solvers for the puzzles found in DDO. And as of today – that app is live!

As an excuse I would like to offer Bonnie’s explanantion

OK, it’s only out on Windows (10) for now (since I reckon most DDO players have 2 monitors and hopefully Windows 10)….

And it doesn’t have solvers for every puzzle in the game (there are a LOT in DDO!!)….

But it’s a start πŸ™‚ I’ve already started setting up a Google Play account to release the app for Android. There is a bug in the android version (you can’t zoom the images) but I want to get a version out. I might [techie talk!] try and completely rewrite the app in Xamarin, rather than it’s current Apache Cordova incarnation [end techie talk!], to try and make it more robust on the various platforms.

Unfortunately iOS will have to wait as Apple charge way more than Microsoft and Google.

I’ve set up a page about the app here.

Slogging through life 34

At least, I *think* this is life 34!

The build itself has been quite fun. I had forgotten how nice it was to just hit things πŸ™‚ But since my last post about TR’ing into this life was at the end of May, it shows just how long it’s taken to get from 15 to our current 27 1/2. We’re just not playing as much as we used to. But, the end is in sight and we’re hoping to make a push this week to cap.

Site Update

Yes I know, shockingly I have another blog post within the space of a week – but it’s a quick one I promise.

For the few people who do wander over here, I just wanted to let you know that the new site I blogged about last week has been turned off. The experiment with Azure shows that although Azure is pretty nifty for putting things in the cloud, it’s not really cost effective for me and my meagre site.

But I did like the new theme I found for the new site, so I’ve ported that over here πŸ™‚ Also – sorry DDOCentral but I’m still not changing my image sizes!

Have fun, see you around!

TR, Site & App

TR

This blog is well over a week late – because we TR’d last weekend after completing our last set of lives (mine a Druid, Rach a Ranger). That was (thankfully) my last Druid life. I can’t say I’ve really enjoyed any of them, apart from the use of the Earthquake spell.

Thou Hast Finished Paladin

Otherwise known as “Life 32 Complete” but I’m getting bored of using variations on that as a blog post title.

But yes, we capped yesterday. My build was (something that would make Lessah and all other Paladin lovers shudder) 7 Paladin/7 Rogue/6 Monk quarterstaff build. I really thought this was my final Paladin life (assuming I stick with 3 of each and DDO don’t bring in incentives to run more) but it turns out I have one more to go. Darn.

31 down, 11 to go….

If I’ve counted correctly that is.

We capped our current lives this weekend. This life I have run a pure Ranger, with Rach running her mostly Druid with a bit of Rogue & Wizard. The combination has worked out really well (again!). Once we got to a higher level especially, as Rach would Earthquake the mobs while I picked them off. They didn’t really have a chance πŸ˜€

Life 30 and Stuff

Hey peeps, long time no blog Β  πŸ™‚ Since I’m too tired to revise this lunch time I thought I’d throw an impromptu blog your way.

Hymm capped life 30 a few weeks ago now. Obviously Rach capped her main, Willowing, too – but I’ve no idea what life she is on. (I’m fairly sure she doesn’t know either Β  πŸ˜› ). I know in my last blog (oh so long ago) I said I intended to do 15 Wizard/5 Warlock but when I actually started the build process and looking at the spells I would lose – I changed my mind. So I went with a pure Deep Gnome Wizard with focus in Illusion, with Necomancy second. I had a fine old time running around and PK’ing and FoD’ing stuff Β  πŸ™‚
