If you saw those mysterious “Beta-Testing” threads here at PX, UG, and BG-R and wondered what in the world it was all about, this thread has the answer. But before we get to the cool stuff, an introduction to how this all came about. (Don’t worry. Though I’m long-winded, I’ll keep it short.)

I wondered if we could have a way to check our ingame ranks/scores faster, without all the hassle of loading up the webpage the old-fashioned way.

Having known my good friend and programmer,sViz, for several years and having collaborated on a few things in the past – she was my first choice for a partner on this project. sViz was more than willing to help, so out went my little idea of “a score-checker” and in came the idea for what we hoped would become the SFO gadget.

The whole process unfolded from February 2, 2009 to April 8TH. The journey and the collaboration was a lot of fun. The “final” product , which we’ll get to in a minute :biggrin: , could not have been possible without all of sViz’s hard work in coding as well as GFX, dedication, and putting up with me.

Thanks to TMyApp for the great idea of the “Track” feature, among other little things. (_DarkSoldier_), thanks for the “Shin-Akuma” skin. And last, all our beta-testers; thank you.

Did my speech run a little long? What? You already skipped it? Come on, really, scroll back up and read it. If you had the patience to read, good on you. Now you know the people who made the gadget what it is.


If this is your first time downloading, and running the SFO Sidekick, just follow the link below, read the instructions and enjoy. If you were one of our beta-testers, delete any and all versions of the Sidekick that are on your PC BEFORE downloading from the link above.

If you have questions or comments, you can become a wincustomize member and comment on sViz’s page. :biggrin: Yes, bug HER, not ME. I kid. Friendly comments welcome on her page, but if I find out you’re annoying her, I’ll find out where you live…

Questions, comments and issues may be sent to me directly at this address, TitaniumFist@streetfighteronline.com and they may be reported in this official thread. (I’ll try to check it as often as possible.) Whatever you do DO NOT email TMyApp, or bug about any issue/problem related with the SFO Sidekick.

You finally released it Fist. http://bbs.projectx.cyberfuturism.co...s/biggrin2.gif
I'm about to download this version. I bet everyone is going to love it, especially those lazy people and rank hunters. http://bbs.projectx.cyberfuturism.co...s/biggrin2.gif
It's like a controller. ;]]

D.Bahki 04-08-2009 12:11 PM

Final version o.o

I already have the final copy. o.0

Could've used a wolverine skin thou D:

Guess I should register there and give her my thanks and appreciation. Or maybe you should bug her to come here Titanium. ._.

TitaniumFist 04-08-2009 12:26 PM

You don't have to do anything, she doesn't mind either way. No, there are a few changes you wouldn't even notice from this final one and the one you've got, Bahki. Like a color glitch in the black no one but me seemed to notice. =[

Dump the old one.

Wolvie skin? Eh? What would the winner of Wolverine: Adamantium Crown want more than his/her very own SFO Sidekick skin. http://bbs.projectx.cyberfuturism.co...s/biggrin2.gif

This thing is cool but it's still a simple gadget.


Good works, i think with the time you will be able to add more features.

Vegeta 04-08-2009 01:14 PM

Before i download it, i want to know exactly what it is. Is it used solely for tracking one's rankings?

TitaniumFist 04-08-2009 01:44 PM

Rank tracking and real time updates is the core of the gadget, yes. Vegeta, like everything in SFO, you're not forced to download or use anything you do not wish to. For a fuller description of what the gadget does (no I don’t have time to spell it out here), click the DOWNLOAD link. (Clicking the link will not automatically install nefarious devices on your PC. =)

You’ll be sent to the Official download page that contains a description of what the gadget does. Trust me when I say there’s nothing harmful or invasive contained in the Sidekick, and if the gadget doesn’t suit your tastes or needs, you can simply head over to your Control Panel, find “SFO Sidekick” and click uninstall/remove.

Murder-Ink 04-08-2009 01:45 PM

umm? nice program, only problem with it is that when im fighting and it say i drop 1 place, it change window, and then i end up getting my *** kicked

TitaniumFist 04-08-2009 01:59 PM

I see. murder-(ink)2, were you playing SFO on fullscreen? Did you try minimizing the gadget to your system tray?

Murder-Ink 04-08-2009 02:06 PM

i play sfo on small screen, sfo sidekick was open at the moment aswell, but in the background

TitaniumFist 04-08-2009 02:08 PM

When testing, I used it the same way but the Sidekick never took focus from SFO gamewindow. We'll look into the issue, but for now, try minimizing the Sidekick to your system tray.

Murder-Ink 04-08-2009 02:19 PM

surething

Blade 04-08-2009 02:42 PM

ther's a problem... my rank suddenly dropped 208 places and so i wanted to know what my peak was before that happened, it sayed zero..... before i believe it said 192 but now it says peak: 0




TitaniumFist 04-08-2009 07:54 PM

It's best to keep an eye on your stats before and after changes, so we can find out exactly what went wrong. There may be no way for us to replicate the error you got. Vegeta, try clicking the "Stop" icon to the right of the "Track" button, and simply start tracking your account anew.

Check the Track stats against the Search stats, to make sure Track is starting out in the right place.

EvilAkuma 04-08-2009 08:20 PM

I'm still working on the Mac part. ^_^

I just need to set it up for online purpose.

Nice Gadget ;)

TitaniumFist 04-10-2009 04:10 PM

Honerable Mention in "TWiS" - picked as one of 6 skins for the weekly wincustomize article

PaddyWallace 04-11-2009 03:44 AM

Well Done to you Tit and your generous friend! Read the whole thing http://bbs.projectx.cyberfuturism.co...ons/tounge.gif

Thanks to everyone who took part. Another step in the ongoing evolution of SFO. These newbieerts don't know they were born...! http://bbs.projectx.cyberfuturism.co...ons/tounge.gif

P.S. If anyone doesn't know, you will have to download some extraction software to extract this. ExtractNow is my favourite...!




ChazyFresh 04-11-2009 06:45 AM
