Analyze your OCTGN games

Sample Analysis

A sample game, analysed. Click for larger img.

The people behind Acoo.net have released a very interesting little web application that takes your OCTGN Android:Netrunner chatlog and analyze it to provide a game overview. It’s kinda neat as it provides you with statistics of how many credits you made, how many ICE you rezzed etc.

Check it out here

To use it, simple go to your chatlog after the game ends, press Ctrl+A, Ctrl + C, to copy all text to the clipboard, then go to the site, paste it in the box and press the button to analyze it. If you’ve played more than one game in the same session, make sure the text you put in contains the logs only from a single game.

I don’t know how the magic happens behind the code but it’s some impressive feat of text parsing, especially since my code tends to be standarized but often provides customized text as well. Not to mention all the times players take back actions (including credits and clicks and so on) so it’d be interesting to know how they manage those situations.

PS: The analyzer is still in beta, so expect some bugs and improvements in the future.
