Have you every seen armor on a tradebot or in a corpse that you wonder what color it is? Wouldn't it be nice to know the color of armor is before you try it on? Have you been storing all your armor to sell until you get arround of determining what color it is, because you know the first question will be, "What color is it"?

If the answer to any of the above is yes, then Deadeye's Color System (DCS) is for you. Here is a run down of some of the features.

  • Show the Color of Armor or clothing Without putting it on
  • Optionally, Identify Armor and clothing AL, protects and spells, Simply by Selecting It
  • Find Armor with matching colors with a single click
  • Generate a List of Armor for use on Web page or VN Board post, complete with a color swatch or simple text
  • Select what you generate list for, an item or a packful at a time.
  • Copy to the clipboard a single item or a entire packful of items ready to paste on the VN boards or into a html document
  • Color names table can be kept current with new colornames with an in-game command
  • Bandit Site/2 shows color names of armor when DCS is active

Using The DCS Window

The DCS panel is organized as follows.

  • The top line is the currently selected item's name
  • The next four lines are the colors and names of the selected Armor or Clothing, if known
  • The Holdbuttons on the far left are used to hold the color to compare to other armor, click on it and it will copy the color just to the right
  • The Colorbuttons just to the left of the color name is the color swatch for the selected item. Click on that and DCS will list all the armor and clothing that has that exact color.
  • The Color Name and number is displayed. Throughout beta the color names may change but the number will remain consistant. I am looking for AC Lore inspired names for the colors.
  • The check mark on the bottom left is to activate auto ID and list, currently it will do everything, so I recommend only haveing this checked when browsing yout inventory or the inventory of tradebots.
  • The Text button will send text to the screen the currently selected item or the armor in the selected container in format selected
  • The Scan button will identify all items not already identified, it will give an estimate on how long is left to identify the items when it is clicked.
  • The check mark between the Scan and Copy buttons forces all items with color to be identified as they are found. WHen checked, it will identify all item not identified so far.only items in players inventory will be listed, if checked, all items known will be listed.
  • The Copy button will put the text to the clipboard instead of display to screen
  • The File button will append the text to a file instead display to screen. Each Day a new file is started.
  • The Choice box at the botton determines the format of the output for Text, List and File formats. It has no effect on the auto identify format. Choices are:
    Single Line Text (default)
    Multi Line Text
    Multi Line w/VN Codes (for posting to VN/IGN boards)
    Multi Line w/HTML Codes (for posting on webpages)
