-=Family Affinities Reference Table=-

Postby Zaelo » January 11th, 2013, 7:38 am

Whew, that took a while to build! But I finally finished my Family Affinities Reference Table.
It's perfect for finding the perfect pet to send against any other pet, may they be wild pets, other players pets, or NPC pets (currently up to date with 5.1).

Please take the time to read the first part, because the reference table is quite huge and overwhelming at first..
Like stated on the page itself, I welcome all comments and suggestions. I'd like to find a way to present all that information that would be a little easier to use, but for now it will have to do.

Also, the html file hosting site that I found doesn't allow me to update the page once posted, so if I make updates, I will be updating the URL in this post, make sure you check up for updates here.

Enjoy!

P.S.: I have an old I.E. at work and the page doesn't display properly at all.. (the host's frame takes up 80% of the page, instead of like 5%.. but hopefully I'm the only one stuck with a crappy browser like IE7! :roll: )

Your page was blocked for me by Microsoft Office security scan as a "dangerous security risk". You may want to check the program!

what, really??
my internet settings at work are super strict and I'm not getting any warnings, I'm surprised you do..

Also my page is strictly basic HTML and CSS, no script at all.. so it surprises me even more..
Might be something from the hosting website though.. but I highly doubt there's any serious risk with that page :/
Anyone else encountering that problem?

If anyone has a server and wouldn't mind hosting my little html document, even possibly the admins here, let me know!

It worked fine for me, thanks!

The only complaint is that since it's not the actual Excel file I can't freeze the first row/column so it makes it a pain when I have to scroll over or down. I'm going to use this to populate my own spreadsheet though, I really appreciate your hard work.

Yeah I know what you mean.. :/
I had to switch to HTML at some point because Excel was not allowing me to set the row height up to what I needed to show all the pet names.. I didn't even know until then that Excel row height had a limit >.<
Plus the scrolling with rows that high is just chunky and hard to play with in Excel.. trust me that HTML is better than the Excel version, sadly...

Ideally, I'd like to find someone who knows programming enough to take that table, convert it to a database, and build a little web app that would allow you to search for a pet and click a button that would then pull out all the information of what pets this pet is good against, and what pets are good against him. Maybe sometime soon :)

Thanks for the comments though, appreciated!

This is awesome. I would love a downloadable version of this table in Excel.

Well thank you :) Glad you appreciated.

As stated earlier, the Excel wasn't easy to work with either, as the line height limit would not allow me to display the full content of some of the busier cells... and I made the switch to HTML before I was finished filling in the table in Excel, so the Excel version I have is only half filled :(.. I'd gladgly share it if it was complete.. :/

I'm still trying to figure out a way to display all of this information in some other way that will make it easier to work with.. if anyone has an idea please share :)
