Setup

Setup, in a few simple steps:

  • Select your main Aion folder path
  • Click on “Enable Chatlog”
  • Enter your character names in the box below the Aion path
  • Select your server and faction
  • Save/Close

If you are still having trouble after this, please do step 1 here: http://rainy.ws/misc-stuff/

 

Using the program:

Player window

  • 1. You can click here to open the skills window
  • 2. Click here to copy the player dps data to clipboard
  • 3. Hover the mouse here with the window active, to see more data
  • 4. Click here to switch to Relics AP (automatic when you loot). Hover the mouse over to view dmg %

Player menu:

You can right-click any player window to get this menu

  • 1. Open a window with full details of skill usage, timing, hits damage %, averages etc
  • 2. Copy dps/damage data to clipboard
  • 3. Add this player to local player database (more on this below)
  • 4. Manual adjustment of looted AP relics count
  • 5. Show a list of the looted AP relics, if any
  • 6. Launch player profile in the website (not available for European servers and US-Kahrun)
  • 7. Set this player as “in my group” for more specific data-copy and parsing (set it in the main menu)
  • 8. You can select a name from those in the setup if it’s your own character, to be used in the dmg/dps data copy
  • 9. If you think this player is hacking, you can generate a report with all their skill timings/damage and the portion
  • of the raw log that belongs to them, it will be copied to your clipboard as text, ready to paste in a ticket to the publisher
  • 10. Block the player from being parsed in the meter until the next time you run it
  • 11. Permanently block the player from being parsed (can be edited in the main menu settings)
  • 12. Set this player as “Enemy” faction; it will be coloured differently from then on. This is a per-server setting
  • 13. Remove player from the current list

Player Colors:

  • Blue’ish: yourself
  • Yellow/gold: in your group or ally. Automatically set when they join. You can also manually set them.
  • Purple: opposite faction (must be set manually)
  • Grey: not identified as part of a group or faction, could be anything

Main Menu

  • Run new instance: launch a copy of the program to run in paralel. Portable one (/portable) will use a different folder to read the settings from, so it’s an easy way to keep a separate install if you play both in Euro and US servers and need different settings on each. so you don’t have to re-do them all the time.
  • Load/Save session: you can store your current session to a file, including all the players data/skills/ap etc, and load it some other time with the same exact values it had. You can also share these files with other people to open on their end.
  • Process another log file: process data from some older log file. Some data won’t be 100% accurate with this method.
  • Save Chat..: export the text from the chat windows to files.
  • Open folders: “Screenshots” folder refers to ARM’s own SS folder, not Aion’s (for screenshots you take with ARM)
  • Freeze chat: stop adding chat text to the chat windows.

  • Start Aion: launch Aion from ARM. You need to configure the path and server in the settings first. The 64-bit client will be selected automatically if available.
  • Kill frozen.. : close Aion instantly
  • Dps profiler: graphs with dmg/dps
  • Players Database: keep your local small database of players you play with, and set them a score and comments. Bad score will give a warning when they join the group or dps nearby.
  • AP Calc: simple calculator for AP relics
  • Faction translator: translation text between both factions
  •  Siege times: opens a table with European server siege times
  • AP ranks table: (I think this is outdated),  ap gain/loss table at different ranks
  • Capture raw log: very useful tool to find stuff in the log and re-process small portions
  • Item library: Find and copy data for any Aion item to link in-game
  • Set alarm: explained later
  • Upload/take/copy: These will capture/store/upload screenshots of the Aion client or the ARM dps data (more on this later)

  • Copy..: copy data in several formats, ready to be pasted from clipboard
  • Clear.. : reset data
  • Class filters: removes all current players from display  except the selected class
  • Graphs/analysis:  filter an encounter by class/mob/boss
  • Compare class damage: creates a table showing all the skills per class, comparing average damage, number of hits, etc
  • Add group/ally members: add members of your group manually when you have the setting to show only group/ally members
  • Remove players not in grp/ally: removes non-group/ally players from current display
  • Remove pve damage: removes all hits not considered “pvp”

  • Main S: opens main settings window
  • * Register only pvp: only hits considered “pvp” will be counted towards dmg/dps and registered
  • ** Register only me/grp/ally: players not in your group etc won’t be registered. You must add player names manually for this via Data/Add..
  • Register dmg from mobs: mobs will also be included in the parsing.

 * ARM’s icon will change as a visual hint that the option is enabled

 

** The settings menu will change as a visual hint that the option is enabled

  • Show processing time: Load % will be displayed, showing the amount of time ARM needs to process data every second
  • Edit banned players: edit list of temporal/permanent parse blocks
  • Visual styles: change window theme
  • (New) Minimalist UI: hide all interface controls except player windows. Restore the UI via tray-menu or double-clicking on any empty area.

Stuff on the status bar

The small panel on the bottom of the window shows a few things. Click it to alternate between 3 different views:

Ap/kills: AP gain from quests/pvp and number of PVP kills.
Exp/Mobs
Kinah (gained)/Spent

The panel right above this also shows some data when you hover the mouse over, from all the players combined:

 

Skills Window

This feature shows very detailed info about all your skill usage, timing, mobs/players you hit etc. You can also search/filter by time/mob/skill/dmg by typing on the search bar. Click on the skills on the left pane to filter by skill.

You can also copy portions of the data with right-click:

 

Players DB

Maintain a player database where you can set scores, and get warnings when bad scored players join the group or dps nearby

 

Raw log capture window

This is a very powerful area where you can load and reprocess portions of the previous log, as well as filtering by specific terms.

 

AP Relic sharing

You can have the AP relics looted counted automatically and displayed in each player box. This is completely automatic, when a relic is looted, the counter will be updated. (this feature is disabled for players on bad score or deemed as hackers/scammers)

To show the current amount, simply type “.ap” in the chat, or select/cut it from the textbox, and ARM will copy the AP amount to the clipboard ready to paste.

 

Item library and Alarms

 

G15/510 LCD

 

In-game faction translation

Simply type “.tr this is the text to be translate” and press enter (the text must appear on-screen/in the log), OR select/cut it, then ARM will catch it and translate it, then put it back in the clipboard ready to paste.

Hello,
I have problems with Aion Rainmeter, I use Windows 7 (64bit).
ARM is well chatlog in 32bit but there is nothing in 64bit, can anyone help me?
( I apologize if my English is not correct )
Thank you in advance!

Yes yes, a miracle, just the act of moving the folder ‘Gameforge’ in ‘c’
By cons, you can not receive updates if I run Luncher, despite having given the installation location in the game settings Luncher.. It should perhaps change some key in the registry, but it does not matter, it only take 5 seconds to put the record in ‘program files’
Thank you very much !

Recently “accidently” clicked around the UI and now ARM becomes transparent(?) ie. the UI is still visible but barely and is well, hard to see ontop of the game, tried to uninstall – reinstall but it re-installs transparent, wondering what the solution could be.

I have a problem with ARM. When I click on a name and go to skill list to see the damage each skill has done it gives me a blank page or so you would think. It lets you mouse over where the information should be but it just looks like a blank white page. I thought that was wierd so I clicked on it and copied and pasted it and it was there. I don’t know if the text and background are the same color or what but that is what it seems like. How do I change text… Read more »

When I use the .item feature the item names do not show up. I can click/select them, but i can’t see the names. So I have to click and copy them to aion to see what I had clicked. What can I do to fix this?

I turned off my firewall to check (and also didnt see it on the list of programs to allow/disallow but couldnt find it) and it still didnt work…

It still shuts off after like 5 seconds. It also picks up a character named “Outrider” along with myself everytime I try. Not sure what that is about.

Is their any corrupt file perhaps in my Aion folder that is messing it up?

Once i load up ARM, it works for about 5 seconds and parses damage, then it stops recording info.. And the grey box (in the Upper left hand corner under “file”) gets greyed out.. Not sure what is causing this any ideas?

Getting an error while trying to launch ARM. I have had it for a few days, but just today started getting a message “Error checking for new version, make sure your firewall isn’t blocking ARM.” I have allowed the program, ran it as administrator, and completely disabled my firewall altogether to see if that’d work, nothing so far. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

I also seem to be encountering an error frequently while ARM is running. It basically resolves itself if you clear all the data but then it will randomly happen again.

k, I figured it out: I have this app called Nexus Mod Manager which I use to manage Skyrim mods – if this app is running ARM will not start; but the moment I close it ARM will work just fine… To have them both running you need to start ARM first…
