Real Time Personal and Group Meters

My love of Star Wars : The Old Republic and a morbid fascination with combat log data (introduced in patch 1.2) lead me start a small project of my own to parse the game produced combat log files and try and make some sense of the numbers. As a result SWToRLogs was born comprising a small program installed on your PC to read the combat data and display the meters, and a central web site and server to manage, analyse and store the data, providing additional real time and historic data analysis for indivuduals, groups, fights and boss encounters.

The home of [SWToR]Logs can be found at www.swtorcombatlogs.com. I have great plans for the project and hope to add many many usefull features for swtor gamers and ops leaders. Some of the features are already implemented and others are being worked on. Vist the web site and download the personal meters to see these features in action.

  • In-Game Overlayed Real Time Personal Meters including ability break down
  • In-Game Overlayed Real Time Group Meters
  • Real Time Broadcast of combat data to Web Socket enabled browsers from central servers providing consistent data views for operations groups
  • Combat Data displayed using easy to read graphs, backed up with data tables to clarify the data and for the real number and data junkies access to the complete combat logs, colour and icon coded to easily see what happened to who and when.
  • Live real time view of any currently active combat log stream via the web site and Web Socket enabled browser. Including aggregation of multiple live feeds
  • Operations group tools, ready check, break calls, book marks, and data analysis by group
  • Combat Fight Browsing, browse and search for any players recorded combat data broken down by date, fight and boss
  • Data and Combat comparison between one or more players, allowing direct comparison between characters,classes and players for any fight data recorded.

Follow my development adventures, failures and successes on the [SWToR]Logs development blog at swtorlogs.wordpress.com as the project evolves.

I think your website is really cool looking. I've never used any combat log aggregators in any mmos (call me lazy lol...) but I bet loads of SWTOR players will find yours very useful. Thumbs up.

I downloaded this to give it a try, couple of things of note.
  • Love the interface and the style of the combat meters, blend in really nicely
  • Download and install was simple, wasn't sure about how to configure it at first but finaly worked it out
  • Nice supporting website, once I worked out how to get at my combat data it was excellent how it was layed out and detailed my in-combat data

I've only tried the meters while in single play mode and like the overview meter and the ability break down. I'll try the group meters at some other time. I'll also be spending time in front of the Training Dummies see if i can squeeze that little bit extra out .

All in all it looks like a good start to combat log parsing and in-game damage meters. I hope you continue with it and add more nice stuff (eg. I'd like to see my crits, rate and size in the in-game meters not just via the web site analysis).

I just found this post, and am extremely excited about it! I'm in the process of getting it integrated with my toons, but I wanted to post ahead of time and be another voice that cries out in excitement!! Now I'll finally be able to start making sense of my combat logs A big TY to the developer!!

Thanks for trying the software Lemon, and I will confess to being a slacker when it comes to creating help guides and user documentation (the bane of all developers ). I have however taken your comment on board and started an "Install and setup" guide for the software this can be found on the website at www.swtorcombatlogs/misc/InstallGuide

I will be adding more data display options to the personal overlay meters in a future release, but at the moment my focus is on completing the data analysis component for the web site, which currently offers much more flexibility in data analysis and combat log break down. Unless of course lots of people yell at me for other things then it will be all change

Thanks again for your support

Our guild have been using these Meters for the last few weeks and I must say, they work extremely well.

We were even able to work out calculations on precisely how short on DPS we were for Stormcaller and Firebrand hardmode. When we wiped our first attempt at 16% on the enrage, we would not have thought to have the numbers required but on subsequent less successful attempts, we could see our numbers were getting higher with practice in real time.

That being said, theres a few features I'd like to see implemented.

One of which is an overall group DPS counter, I know we can add it up but for convenience's sake it would be very useful.

The second would be related to the website and the "Top DPS" charts, if we could filter it to only show our guild it could be lovely, many of our DPS'ers including myself like to have friendly competition / ribbing.

Again, many thanks for this, excellent tool

Never built it with PVP in mind as I never play PVP (too bad at it), would be interested to hear more about how it is in PVP, and if there is anything different I need to do for PVP combat log analysis.

Thanks for using it and thanks for the feed back.

Bumping for greater good (and for my love for this program). Its better then MOX. Better GUI that actually fit in the game GUI, diagrams and uploading option.

I want to hug You man
