New Version of ZERB

Post by Clersius » Wed Aug 06, 2014 11:57 am

Hello everyone!

I have modified Malakat's invaluable ZERB tool by adding a few new search features and including/updating/completing ALL of the Zy-El 4.4c Runewords. It is currently available for download on the Zy-El Wiki.

I encourage you to try it out, but before you do so, please peruse the 'readme.txt' file (included in the .zip) for information on the new search features! If you have any questions, comments, additions, retractions, changes, or problems, just drop a message in this thread and I'll do what I can to address your post.

Enjoy! :mrgreen:

Clersius is too modest in describing what he has done here. This is a major update to ZERB and with the additional filters it provides, you can search for just about anything you want to. Plus...ALL the 600+ runewords have been populated in the program :!:

Additional filters:

‘;’ - Stat Type Search (includes class skill search functionality)

‘:’ - Partial Stat Code search (useful if you want to find a specific attribute e.g. bocl)

‘!’ - CtC <skill>

‘@’ - Charged Skills (want to find how many runewords have Blood Golem Charges?)

Please take a look at this short video (best viewed Full-Screen as the YouTube conversion downgraded the quality) I put together to show the new features in action.

Many thanks Clersius for all your hard work :).

Nice to see you still lurking and also monitoring the Wiki from time to time (I see you have been adding new members....duly noted and appreciated by this lazy admin). I just haven't had the time for reasons I am sure you aware of (i.e. my father is not well). Hope you are sorted on the job front (PM me if you want to chat about that situation) and are keeping well yourself :?:

I noticed that she was a glass cannon with the amount of life she had.

Tell your father that I said Hi. There is this old Austrian medicine we use to cure all illness and that is Haggis with a lot of Beer, Schnapps, and all the Scotch you can find. I think it was a Scottish Sheep Herder that got lost in the alps one day.

I have had no luck in the job front but otherwise doing well minus the Arthritis. I might need to use that old Austrian medicine for my Rheumatism since Granny's Rheumatism medicine is running out.

Thanks for the video, Al! That does a MUCH better job than the docs of explaining the new search codes. You rock. :D And welcome back for a few days, as well.

Hans, nice to see you still skulking about staggering about the forums. :twisted: What kinds of entertainment are capturing your attention these days, if I may be so bold? We'd love to have you back for a tourney or two, but there's no pressure! :D

I am starting to get the itch to play Zy-El and Eastern Sun again. But I want to make sure It is a full blown case of Zy-El fever.

I have been playing a bit of Torchlight 1 and 2. A bit of Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3, and New Vegas. Recently got Civ 5 which is alright. Still my favorite Civ is the first one. I also got Dragon Age: Origins with no xpac or dlc's, I have not played that far in it yet. I recently started playing Titan Quest with the xpac. I had for a few years but I could never get Athens before I started to get bored. I am trying to see if I can get farther with Soulvizier mod but my laptop is suffering since it is a quad core with quite low clock speed per core and I believe the game is only designed for a single core. I know it is the CPU since it makes no difference at what graphic settings it is at. My laptop has a good video card for a laptop.

Also on and off I have played DIII. Played a few games with Metro. I have not played for about a month. At first I thought the expansion was better than Vanilla but in the end I like Vanilla much more. I find that Adventure mode with Rifts just kills the feel of the game since everyone is just doing rifts with a few Bounties in between to get some bounty cache legendaries and keys to open rifts. Items are not really improved and with the new ladder seasons it likely will be worse and likely the season will be done in less than a day. Some people already beat HC t6 Act 5 main boss after 10 hours with a fresh start.

Hahaha....only a Scotsman or an Austrian could come up with such a cure-all :!: Personally, I love Schnapps, Beer and Haggis but Whisky of any type makes me "boak" (good Scots word that). I have to ask though....was it a "left-handed Haggis or a right-handed Haggis" :?:

One word answer to help the ailments of...Arthritis...."Cannabis" ;) ...either that or Haggis + Schnapps + Whisky + Beer .... liquidised for 30 seconds for a power supplement :twisted:

Correct...no point in coming back if all you concentrate on are 2 skills (a) Find Booze and (b) Wibble-Wobble-Wind, otherwise your Barb is just going to be "Zonked" again

Cannabis is no go for me. My metabolism is already too high if I take Cannabis there would not be enough food on this planet to cure my munchies. My friends get scared when I get in one of those severe munchies state. I leave the Tasmanian Devil nothing when I am in that state.

As for the Haggis I do not remember it anymore I guess Beer, Schnapps, and the Whisky did its job.

Find Booze is an overpowered skill especially when dealing with Haggis.

Look down at the body you may see no trace of wounds but in the eye the eye of the beholder one cannot asume.
Not a drop of blood is drawn but you know how it bleeds beware of the sharp edged weapon called human being
It is a shield of passion and strong will from this I am the victor instead of the kill

I will not feed your hunger, instead I bite the pain looking not back, but forward
I bite down hard
try to cover up the trail of deceit and daggers spawned from your soul

The Wiki organisers have known about it expiring due to it being no longer "free". Unfortunately, JrEye's computer stopped working and I have not been around due to my father having a long period of illness and sadly he passed away on Tuesday 18th November so I won't be around for a while yet. Hopefully after the immediate pain is gone I can get things sorted in a few weeks.

I'll be back...I just don't know exactly when.

Meantime, chins up and Happy Zy-Elling :)

One of my father's favourite quotes was...

"From quiet homes and new beginning,
Out to the undiscovered ends,
There's nothing worth the wear of winning,
but laughter and the love of friends."

Hey! My first post at the forum :-)
This looks so amazing!
Unfortunately I didn't get to download it from the wiki before it went down :cry:
Could any of you put this amazing tool on some other file sharing service? or Maybe here on the phrozen keep?

Really looking forward to try it! It seems like you put A LOT of work into this Clersius :-)

Thanks! I can't get additional filters you posted to work... Tried to search for the exact same things as in your video, but nothing came up :(

Also the "Phoenix" you searched for in your video seems to have different attributes than the one I get... actually you got two result in the search: "Phoenix (Me)" and "Phoenix (Ch)" whereas I only got "Phoenix" with the following attributes:
Phoenix
Runes: Thul-Ort-Ral-Amn-Tal
Item types: me ch
Created: 1

Attributes:
78% chance of crushing blow
15% life stolen per hit
5% chance to cast level 10 poison explosion on striking
8% mana stolen per hit
Adds 88-176 cold damage
Which is not the same as you got in the video :-| Any idea why?

Happens for all of us :-)

Again thanks a lot! (Also to Clersius for the amazing work!)

A bit Off topic: Seems like you're quite involved in the wiki :) , I found two alternative wikis that seems to be under construction and was thinking whether that was the "official" porting of the old one or it just was someone else making another? I have posted the links under the wiki topic... [I'm not nagging, just wanted to inform you what I discovered when I was digging for an archived version with Clersius's improved ZERB ;)]

I had to do a double take when I saw the front page news post. It's unreal to see someone care enough about this old thing to do something like this!

Thank you. You just made my day.

I've uploaded this same version (0.3.2.1) of ZERB to a new location, so it is available again.

Way too late to respond to Malakat, really, but it was my pleasure, sir! So many people benefited so much from your program over the years, so thank YOU for providing us with such an amazing app in the first place, Malakat. :)
