    [BETA] Online Diablo 2 Drop Calculator

    So, I've been AFK for a while, working on my latest project. Now it's complete and I'd like to share it with you:

    http://dropcalc.silospen.com

    So wherever you are, you can work out your drop probabilities.

    This version fixes many of the problems with the GOMULE drop calculator and it (should) be almost perfectly accurate, or at least as accurate as ATMA's dropcalc. Which might not be accurate.

    The code is not based on the GoMule drop calculator, it is a rewrite and is Python based. I will get around to fixing the drop calculator in GoMule so that it is as accurate as this one.

    Extra features may be added in the future, assuming it keeps working OK. This application has not been load tested in any way, so I'm going on the principle 'it works with 1 guy, so it should work with 10x that'. This may prove to be incorrect.

    Give it time to work, there are large datasets being passed around here.

    A lot of it is javascript based, such as the header sorting. Click on the table headers to sort them, etc. If you don't like javascript (wierdo :p) then you can't use this!

    IE, Firefox, Safari should all work. However, you might not get such a pretty table...I'm working on that. Firefox is the way to go!

    It even (kind of) works on the IPhone/Ipod touch!

    Enjoy.

    Thanks a lot :D

    Yep, it's all AJAX based, JQuery makes AJAX super easy.

    Very nice!

    Just a few criticism here:

    It would be even better if one could set to display probability like "1:428" I think it's an easy change. (and it worked in Gomule...)

    It would be nice to have the option of "All" in the monster type filter.

    Re: [BETA] Online Diablo 2 Drop Calculator

    When searching under the Unique monsters category, this error shows up:

    Error - exceptions.TypeError:cannot concatenate 'str' and 'NoneType' objects!

    Just thought I'd let you know :)

    Good job, you found the first bug! :D

    I'll look at it tomorrow.

    Thanks.

    18/12/08 - Website is slowly being built. -Just like mine then! ;P

    Good work on the dropcalc, it's purty and easy to use! I suggest moving the "Find" button over to the right, as it seems a more logical place for it to me.

    Hats off to you!

    Re: [BETA] Online Diablo 2 Drop Calculator

    Nice work! I'm not sure how easy or hard this would be...but is it possible to make various fields remember their settings.

    For example, if I set it to players 8 in 'Basics' (incidentally, you missed out the 's' lol) and set the difficulty to 'Hell' and then realise I want to change type from 'Item' to 'Monster', all the previous fields I customised reset to defaults, which is slightly annoying when you want to fine tune things. This isn't a big issue however, otherwise, it's pretty cool!

    It wouldn't be hard, I'll slowly fine tune the usability. For example, the back button doesn't work if you want to go back to previous results and things.

    Re: [BETA] Online Diablo 2 Drop Calculator

    @ioupainmax: Dropcalc now has some idea of state, so it preserves it between different calculator versions.

    Also:

    • Added small amount of client side validation.
    • Fixed bad rounding in some cases when doing item quality selection.
    • Fixed some little bugs.

    @Dashy: Working on the item exporting.

    Updated http://dropcalc.silospen.com with a few fixes.

    Fixed the countess rune drops and her other drops. Plus a few rounding errors.

    And I got married after a vacation in Japan. Busy week.
