Many of you know the KOS lookup tool, that was developed by SOUND. With them being KOS, this tool stopped working for obvious reason.
To keep this service alive, a friend of mine and I started to develop our own KOS Lookup tool. At first we tried to keep it in our corporation for some testing, but there seems to be a desperate need for it also in the alliance. So, here we go.
Just download the archive, extract it to a folder of your choice and run the tool after your client hast started. The KOS Checker will automatically watch all of your chat channels you are currently in. To perform a KOS check, you only have to type xxx Pilotname
in a chat and the KOS Checker will tell you if the pilot is KOS or not.Features:
> Clean overview of a pilots KOS status
> Ping on KOS pilot
> Hotdropper WarningThings we are planning for the future:
Mark known hotdropper
Local cache to speed up the things a little bit
To add a chat channel to the monitored list from the tool, simply chose File -> Reload Logs from the tools menu.
If you have any issues start the debug-version (comes within the archive) and paste me the output of the console window, that is started with the debug-version.
Keep in mind, at the moment this tool is an early ALPHA version
, we are working at the moment on. I will post here any updates we are making, so you can always update to the latest version.
