Help test Hyper-v Tools v1.7 BETA

Please let me know if you can assist in debugging and I can send you an invite to a private chat room.

Hello all, I could use some help with testing out the new version. I have tried it with all of the hardware I have and so far things are running with no issues. This is a beta version (although the entire product should be considered beta as I am still writing it out) and can be downloaded below.

Fixed:

  • Support for Server 2008/Windows10 is now working (not 100% confident, need help testing against all versions)
  • Added local host support (if local machine is the VM host, it should load with no issues)
  • Multi-server support added
    • Double click the hostname box to enter credentials and select your server list (1 server per line).
  • Added more logging (still not liking how I am doing this, will most likely revamp logging on official release)

My hopes are that I get confirmation from you lovely people that things are working better than before and from there I will start adding in support for other things (SCVMM, Clusters, etc).

Does anyone know of a good way to chat in real time? Maybe we can start up a chat group so that I can actively fix issues in real time with you guys?

 

Dota 2 SteamWebAPI C# .NET

Hello dear friends, since my first post on Reddit I have learned a lot!!! My code for the Dota 2 tool is now on github and I wanted to share some of the progress I have made since I have uploaded it there. The tool now supports these features:

  • GetMatchHistory
    • This provides the latest 100 matches with a lot of the information parsed and reformatted to make sense
  • GetHeroes
    • This method grabs the latest heroes
  • GetMatchDetails [WIP]
    • This method grabs an individual match detail including player information as well as build details

Here is a bit of the output for GetMatchDetails

and here is  a sample output of GetMatchHistory:

As of now, I am only storing this data in memory but once I complete most of the these methods, I will move onto the data store phase. Currently I am leaning towards Microsoft SQL but that might not be the best approach for a long term solution. My end goal would be to keep storing data and allowing our users to use this as a database…similar to DotaBuff but hoping I could keep it free.

Stay tuned for more guides in this series!
