Good day I've heard lots of the DPS channels, I currently have a heavy hitting romplas leeching scimitar faw/apb beam boat. My best parse to date is 25k and I could use help getting it higher. I'm sure I've got room for improvement via doff and skill allocation. For anyone that would like to give me a hand feel free to friend me my toon is Kendra@matthewboss31.
shield hits count as damage (because, duh, they do)
you got it wrong. The setting is "count shield hits to HITS". Shield damage is always included in the overall damage (but you can see shield damage and hull damage separated in the damage tables).
The meaning of this setting is this: in the logfile there are always two different entries for the shield damage and the hull damage of one attack. (If there was shield damage) In my tests with the ACT (HilbertPVP-Plugin) it counted them both (so you got two hits for one shot). This setting will do the same in the CombatLogReader. But in fact this is senseless, because shield and hull damage of one attack are obviously part of the same hit. Selecting this setting will only increase your number of hits/attacks and create "wrong" values for CrtH and Acc. It only exists for better comparability with the ACT.
I think I will replace it in the next future.
I have downloaded the new version you linked to, but I do not see a box for the DPS channel. Can you say where it is?
The linked version is not the current version. Please run the update. It should say 126.96.36.199.
Can anyone answer why this new 'parser' has changed files size 2x in recent days. And no offense, but Java is a wee bit weak for security. My corporate antivirus (which I have to trust) disables any attempt to review it.
Just curious why STO is allowing links to third party software....
