W3 Damage and Armor Calculator v0.3

Submitted by Triax
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
This is the first ressource I bring to you, a little tribute. ;)
As I noticed that some people like calucators for damage and armor, I did one on my own because those I tested had bugs or did not include either armor or damage calculation. So here is one including both plus hero attributes. Have fun with this! =)


To those who get errors when trying to fill in values:
- If there's just a '-' in the input, it errors. That's logical, but as soon as I have an idea for making that more user-friendly I will.
- If that's not what you did, please tell me what you put into what field, or (what would be best) post a screenshot.


I need some help with attack cooldown calculation.
I looked it up in the game constants and it says that with each agility point cooldown is decreased by 0.02.
Now I ask myself: Does this actually mean that you need 0.02 seconds less, or is the current cooldown reduced by 2%?
Also, what is the maximum attack rate for units? There is a certain limit, changing from unit to unit. How is that calculated?



Version changes
0.2b Did something about the reset buttons (didn't reset all the things they should).
I also added some lines so maybe that's it already, would be nice if you tried it again.
0.3 Revised armor calculation, should be working now
Several little things

    I don't know whether it's working on Windows Vista, it would be really cool if someone tested that. =)

    Also, I'm not sure whether the formula for damage reduction is right. It's currently (armor * 0.06)/(armor * 0.06 + 1). Does somebody know whether that's the way it's calculated?

    I'm sorry, but that damage/armour calculator is just too simple. It doesn't have enough options, like seeing how 2 units would do in a fight against each other, etc. Whats it does do works, however, so if you could add more options it might prove to be better than some other damage/armour calculators out there at the moment.

    I totally agree with you, several faults I did came to my mind right after I uploaded it, so I worked on this, but somehow forgot to upload the thing.
    So I changed the design and added some options.

    One question about the cooldown: How is that calculated? I looked it up in the game constants and it says that with each agility point cooldown is decreased by 0.02.
    Now I ask myself: Does this actually mean that you need 0.02 seconds less, or is the current cooldown reduced by 2%?
    Also, what is the maximum attack rate for units? There is a certain limit, changing from unit to unit. How is that calculated?

    Also, in the constants it's said that hero's have a base defense of -2 and that with each agility point it's increased by 0.3. But as I had a look on the Mountain King (level 1), he had 2 armor. He should have 1.3, so I guess 1 should be displayed. I'm confused. oO

    And third, the formula for the armor in percent is wrong (compared to those displayed ingame), but I couldn't find any other. Somebody know how it's calculated?

    I don't know whether I find the time and patience to do what you said about 2 units fighting each other, but it's really an interesting point. But before I haven't get behind these 2 points, it doesn't make sense.

    I think, if you don't know all of these calculations, you shouldn't really be doing a damage calculator anyway, because if you don't know any of the stuff, your program can't be accurate... my advice is ditch it, and don't start something without knowing how.

    Dear Element of Water, I won't.
    I've been aware of the armor thing since I uploaded the program and mentioned it in the description. I know about the problems the program has, but the damage calculation is fine. Thanks for your opinion, but help would be appreciated.

    Ah yeah, that's a thing I forgot to mention - whenever you press backspace it says you can't (in german).

    Then what are you typing? You know you're just allowed to use numbers and one comma per field? Reset does not error either.

    I dunno whether you need that .NET framework thing, maybe that's why?

    Sorry, I dunno what's wrong. I downloaded it myself to make sure we really use the same version and I don't have those problems (on two different computers). So as long you've got the latest version and didn't hit your computer I don't know what's causing this. Anybody else having this bug?

    [0.2b now]

    If you still get errors please tell me what you put into what field or better post a screenshot. Thanks.

    I think its a very good program cause being able to contribute overall dmg and armor is nice
