[Tool] Lobby Companion - additional stats, personal banlist,

Postby  ThorConzales » Sat Aug 05, 2017 1:49 pm

I decided to create a tool to help players organize better quality lobbies by providing additional stats such as games played, win ratio and drop ratio and an ability to rate players so when the same player joins your lobby again you would know his or her history.

Description
Lobby Companion is a desktop app that works with Age of Empires 2 HD and provides additional info for players who join your lobby. It works for both lobby hosting and lobby joining scenarios. Additional info that is being displayed is Location, Total Games, Win Ratio and Drop Ratio so you can make a more educated guess with whom you would like to play with. To keep the track of players who you don't want to play with in the future or who you would like to you can use a reputation system. Reputation system allows to assign negative or positive reputation for players who you played the game with so the next time the same player joins your lobby you can check the reputation history of that player and decide whether to let that person stay or not. Players are tracked by SteamID, so evasion is not possible by changing a name. To make the experience more nicer Lobby Companion is capable of projecting in-game overlay with all the information you need to make a decision about the player without having to alt-tab into the actual Lobby Companion app. Optionally (which is enabled by default) overlay is also shown when the game is not active, so you can do other stuff while waiting for your lobby to get full and still keep an eye on the lobby progress without constantly alt-tabbing to check if the lobby is full.

It's the first release and there probably are some bugs around, if possible please report them to GitHub for better tracking and history. There are tons of other features that could be added which I probably will add, but I wanted to get the initial version out to the public so people could start using it as soon as possible.

WARNING: This tool broke my Steam installation completely when I tried to use it. I had to reinstall Steam from the start after that.

Sorry to hear that. Can you provide some additional info what happened, or what errors were being thrown? Is your Steam installation setup somewhat different from default setup? The only thing that is being done on Steam directory AFAIK is when NetHook2 is being inject it creates additional directory called "nethook" under Steam's directory when network dump is being written into.

I now did release the source code, so people who were hesitant before to give it a try can now read the code and build their own version if they want.

Additionally I added an option to calculate balanced teams based on either the rank (ELO), total games or win ratio of the lobby members. Total games and win ratio calculations are only available if all lobby member stats are available. It works by clicking on the button and then balanced teams will be copied to your clipboard which you can then directly paste into the in-game lobby chat.

I also created a separate subreddit for this tool: https://www.reddit.com/r/aoe2lc/.

Looks pretty cool! I will try it definitely when I play AoeHD the next time.
