Update Times - Tools

Postby Heaveria » Wed Mar 07, 2018 5:12 am

Hello fellow NSers!

I'm curious about the update times! I have used the tool Spyglass in the past to get my update times... yet as you probably know, it can be inaccurate up to a few minutes. Previously I would use ADR20XX in addition to Spyglass, yet the Github of ADR20XX is no longer available or has been changed somehow. I no longer have it available on my computer. So I'm curious if anyone knows of any other legal tools that allow for a more accurate viewing of update times and/or if there is any other manual way to get a more accurate times in order to pull a for example 10 second trigger.

Thanks,
Heaveria

Spyglass was never meant to be triggered off of directly. The point of it is that you can generate a detailed sheet easier instead of having to manually do that from the raw data dump (which is still good to know how to do). While a region may be off several minutes from the listed time, 2 regions listed as 10 seconds apart will still be roughly 10 seconds apart. You use spyglass to find a trigger region for manual triggering.

I recommend reading this guide viewtopic.php?f=12&t=431835 (How I personally trigger)

I don't really know other methods

Ah ok, I thought there would've maybe been other tools or another way to do it.
I guess I already know everything then :)

Does anyone know what happened to ADR20XX? It was good to run during update as it was a legal update tool that would calculate the update constantly as the update occurred making it very accurate. Spyglass can be rather inaccurate at times. There are defenders (also also raiders) that are able to somehow calculate it on the second in advance. It just interests me what tactics they use....

At least I still use 20xx. Haven't heard of anything else.
Take each of my posts individually. Often I argue a position in one post only to say something contrary to it in the next one. :P

The development of ADR 20XX has been handled over to Roavin. Here is the link to the most updated version of it: https://github.com/arke/ADR-20XX
