@  Jask : (30 October 2014 - 07:49 AM) I was at a friend's place for a horror tabletop game and we suddenly heard yelling and fireworks, for a fair amount of time.
@  Tuddle : (30 October 2014 - 07:05 AM) lvl World series champions, oh yeh :d
@  Halcyon Dtier : (30 October 2014 - 03:57 AM) lvl 29 in destiny, oh yeh
@  Basukesu : (28 October 2014 - 03:20 AM) Hmm, I just noticed that Safari on Yosemite actually looks at the background color of the webpage you are browsing and is mildly transparent if it is other than white thus spilling the color slightly into the window frame. Oo >< Damn you apple ! Little touches all over, but they still slowed down my Painter 12 >< GRRR!
@  BizzarreCoyote : (28 October 2014 - 03:08 AM) Then again, I need 6 people to even attempt this thing with in the first place. So yeah.
@  Basukesu : (28 October 2014 - 03:07 AM) It is obvious! (>' ')>`@ Cookie for you!

@  BizzarreCoyote : (28 October 2014 - 01:04 AM) Just reading about the number of ways this Raid can TPK is ridiculous
@  Mad Hatter : (28 October 2014 - 12:14 AM) A good void weapon helps heaps.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (27 October 2014 - 11:46 PM) Still haven't even attempted the Vault of Glass. Not even kinda confident in my own abilities, or the abilities of my potential group.
@  Mad Hatter : (27 October 2014 - 09:47 PM) I hope to one day finish it. Preferably before the next raid comes out. Extra preferably before the first DLC drops.
@  Halcyon Dtier : (27 October 2014 - 09:46 PM) Destiny Raids are my bitch
@  Joker : (27 October 2014 - 11:08 AM) No doubt it's going to be getting lots of DLC and updates in order to remedy some of the problems but November has some pretty big games coming out that could knock Destiny's player pool down. I've heard rumblings from loads of players that say a horde mode would be great for Destiny and I have to agree. A survey showed that MOST people played PvE in the game anyway (explains why Bungie's latest update is all about PVP) so I think a horde mode would be great.
@  Joker : (27 October 2014 - 11:05 AM) Yeah, Destiny is a fun game to play but, for me at least, it's probably going to be taking a back-seat come November because there's a few games coming out that I'm REALLY looking forward to. I never followed Destiny when it was being hyped up so when I jumped on the bandwagon just as the game released, I never felt that sense of disappointment or anger when the game didn't deliver on what everyone thought it would. Still, I'm glad I picked it up because I do enjoy playing it and at the end of the day that's what matters most.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (27 October 2014 - 05:13 AM) Don't get me wrong: Destiny *is* a fun game, but so far, in the way that CoD games are. Play it through a few times, then forget all about it.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (27 October 2014 - 05:09 AM) I figured that was that case.

But yeah, Destiny feels like...half a game, to be honest. Like, a fuckton of lore is missing from the game itself, the dialogue seems...stiff sometimes, and there's just not too much to do.
@  Halcyon Dtier : (27 October 2014 - 02:19 AM) Feels = Reals
@  Mad Hatter : (27 October 2014 - 01:53 AM) But the base formula is fun. It's a shoot and loot with tight controls and cool looking guns.
@  Mad Hatter : (27 October 2014 - 01:49 AM) And I have to begrudgingly agree that Destiny still has a ways to go before it lives up to even a fraction of its potential.

If you have ever wanted a particular set of armor skills, but didn't know what armor pieces/gems to equip, then you probably posted about it in DevilTrigger's Armor Set thread (or one of the others). This program is an alternative (NOT a replacement) to that. Choose up to five armor skills, how many weapon slots you can spare and see what's possible.


Download it here.

Some notes:

  • You can ignore Piercings (SSP, Barrage, Aspire, etc) if you don't have them yet
  • You can filter out any sets that give negative (bad) skills
  • You can allow Torso Inc pieces or not as you prefer
  • You can allow "dummy" items or not
  • You can right-click armor and decorations in the solutions box and Advanced Search columns to see the skills/materials
  • You can specify what HR and level of Village quests you have access to, filtering out armor you can't make yet
  • You can use either the translated TeamHGG patch "language" for MHP2ndG or the official MHFU English, French, German, Italian or Spanish.
  • Use the Advanced Search feature to filter out specific armor/decorations pieces you don't want/have. It also uses a slightly better (but slower) algorithm.
  • It's pretty fast. Typical searches of 3 skills take about a second on my 2.1 GHz Core2Duo, although your milage may vary. Requesting more skills is slower.

If you don't get any results, you can try using more weapon slots, or removing a skill. Also, check that you're not searching for Blademaster-only skills for a Gunner (or vice versa)!
You can also try an Advanced Search, which is a little bit slower but generally produces more solutions.
The Male/Female option only affects the NAMES of some of the armor pieces, eg. Obituary vs. Butterfly.

When focused, Ctrl-A selects all text on the solution text-box, and you can use Ctrl-F to search it.

All the data is stored in simple text format in the Data folder. If you want to use it, go right ahead!

You will need .NET Framework 2.0 or higher, or 3.5 on x64 systems. Confirmed to work on WinXP, Vista, and Win7.
(Thanks blueyx and SoulG)
If you get an error message about the application configuration being incorrect, you may need to install the Microsoft C++ 2008 Redistributable.
If you have over-protective Anti-Virus software, you may have to adjust your settings and/or mark the program as "trusted".
Thanks to Cefal for confirming this with Norton.

Things the program does NOT do:

  • Show EVERY possible combination. Just the "optimal" solutions as determined by the search heuristic.
  • Optimize decorations/gems perfectly. Most of the time it doesn't matter though.
  • Show you what it will look like. I seriously doubt this will ever be possible, sadly.

If you want to link to this from within your FAQ/Compendium/Whatever then by all means, go right ahead. You don't need to ask permission, although I would prefer you to at least credit me. Don't link to the download directly, however, since it will be removed and replaced with another one whenever I do any updates.

If you find any errors, especially armor combos that you know work but it doesn't find, let me know!
In any case, feedback, comments, suggestions for improvement etc. are much appreciated!

Thanks to DevilTrigger, tsun001, blueyx, Mauzer, kai, midgemage, Sloth, Hamtaro, and everyone who works the armor set requests. You guys rock!

Update Aug 10, 2010: Torso Inc is now considered, fixed the "Worry" skill not working. Also it remembers your last settings and results and automatically loads them when you start it.
Update Aug 18, 2010: Fixed some bugs. Should work correctly on .NET Framework 2.0 as promised.
Update Aug 24 2010: Major update. Solution text-box searching and filtering of Torso Inc pieces. Advanced Search.
Update Sep 23 2010: Fixed some bugs, added filtering of dummy parts. Improved decoration algorithm.
Update Sep 24 2010: Fixed a crash, added ability to resize Advanced Search window nicely.
Update Dec 02 2010: Many performance increases, added ability to right-click armor/decorations for more info, sorting, French and German languages.
Update Dec 25 2010: Fixed some bugs, added Spanish and Italian languages.
Update Apr 26 2011: Fixed Flat-Footed bug, tweaked some UI, added multi-threading (~3x faster on multi-core CPUs)

Hey guys, thanks for the comments! Posted Image

@Nosuke, I can add a copy-to-clipboard feature in the next update, that's pretty easy. For now, you can select the text and Ctrl-C copy and Ctrl-V paste it into Notepad and use the search feature there.

@Ndog921 and Gary, I don't know if I will be able to port it to Mac...perhaps it will work in Wine? I can't really test this myself as I don't have a Mac. I am interested, Gary, in knowing how fast it runs on your older computer, and what CPU and RAM it has?

@Nuno, Yes I am considering making a similar program for MH3(Tri). The main problem is deciding what to do about the charm things that are randomly generated. They are created according to a set of rules, but I don't think I can just assume that everyone has access to every possible charm...

BTW, it is really easy to add more languages, I just need a list of the armor, skill and decoration names.
If anyone knows of any such non-English resources, I can add those in, too.

u could make a "charm database" when u place some usefull charms ppl would need to make armour

i suggest u check nosuke's armour library and use all the charms its posted there and u can allways add more ones :)

but the most important ones should be on nosuke thread for sure

That is indeed one method, although I would prefer to devise an algorithm that automatically gave you some options for charms, e.g
3-slot charm (no skills)
+5 charm with 1 slot
+7 charm with 2 slots
And then after choosing that, the corresponding armor sets are displayed.

Since there are WAAAY fewer armors in Tri than MHFU, it doesn't need to be as efficient.

@Ndog921:I will not be porting this to Mac anytime soon, if ever. If I do, it will be after I get all the other features implemented (see first post).

Have you tried running it through Wine? I have absolutely no idea if it will work, but it's worth a shot, right?

For the possible mhtri charms: there are only 75 types of charms in the game, cant you just have it scan for what type of charm would be needed, then scan that charms possible combos? If you read the charm page on the wikia it shows all 75 types and explains the A/B/C lists.

Edit: On your picture in the first post, it says ~asset instead of Tasset.
