Selected Asset-O-Matic databases

I’ve collected a few Asset-O-Matic search results from a few names you might find familiar 😉 I’ll add a few more from Team Bungie when I get chance

Halo 3 Asset-O-Matic FAQ

As people have been playing with the newly released Asset-O-Matic BETA I posted last night some common questions and problems have popped up..

  • You must extract the files from the zip before running the program.. You cannot run the file from zip as it may not be able to access the SQLite DLL and the search results are saved in the application directory, if this is a temp directory then there’s a good chance you won’t be able to find it or it might get deleted!
  • Once a search is complete the results are not automatically loaded, you must use the Load DB button to open the saved results.
  • Search results are stored in the application directory and are named gamertag_date_time.h3
  • Searches do take some time, to scan my game history of 1774 games takes approximately 20 minutes. Leave it running in the background, you can always load up some other search result files to keep you interested 🙂
  • If the staus bar is stuck at Scanning Bungie.net game history… and hasn’t changed after 5 minutes try closing the program and restarting the search

Halo 3 Asset-O-Matic BETA

<update>
I should have included a game history file with the beta to keep you occupied whilst you’re scanning your own, here’s Ferrex’s game history. Just load the file into Halo 3 Asset-O-Matic using the Load DB button, you can continue any scans you’ve already started as viewing a scanned game history and downloading one are totally seperate 🙂
</update>

It’s not quite as complete as I had planned to release but due to not having enough time to refactor the code at the moment and a strong desire to get his tool into the publics hands I’m proud, and slightly worried, to present the Halo 3 Asset-O-Matic beta!

The usual cavets apply, if your PC explodes it is totally not my fault!
I strongly advise that you read the included README.txt as it explains the basic usage and what’s missing.

Please leave bug reports here so I can get them fixed as well as improving the UI and getting those features I had to cut out for this release back in!

Please link to this post rather than directly to the file, thanks!

Here’s a screenshot so you know what to expect 😉
