Final Fantasy XI Timer for PalmFollow

I have released the first version of Final Fantasy XI Timer for Palm at http://doconnor.homeip.net/ffxi/ Right now all it does it display the current Earth time and the Vana'dial weekday, date and time. It also display the current Universal Time which is useful for make sure the Time Zone is set correctly on your Palm. The web page also has tips on other ways you can use your Palm to help you with Final Fantasy XI.

I expect to add more features.

The timer has been updated to show the next 5 Vana'diel days or the next 5 days of the selected day of the week. Performance and design have also been improved.

This is an extremely helpful tool, I cannot wait until you add more features. Thanks

Edit: The only problem I see so far is that the clock seems to be 1 RL hour wrong when computing vanadiel date, time, etc. If I adjust the clock on my palm it corrects the vanadiel time, and the timer ends up being very close. I am in the central time zone, perhaps the timer only adjusts for the time that the programmer is in. It's a minor inconvenience, it isn't hard to manually adjust one hour.

Man I wish I still had my old Palm. This sounds like a great piece of software, and I hope you continue to add new features. Great job!

It is designed to use your Palm's Time Zone settings to calculate the correct time. For my Palm you can set the time zone by going into Preferences, Date & Time and then select you location. You will probably have to select "Edit List..." from the bottom of the location list.

Well, my time zone is set correctly. Either the timer is wrong, or it doesn't account for the fact that I'm on CST with no Daylight Savings Time.(Stupid backwards state can't catch up to the rest of the country) Either way it's not really a big deal, love the timer. :)

Edit: Don't know if it makes a difference, but I am using Sony Clie running Palm OS 4.1

Dang, there goes my excuse for learning Java on my Palm. Seems to work ok I _think_. The time on my Tungsten matches the time on Mithra Pride's clock within the degree of accuracy my Palm's clock is set.

You might want to put in a link to the freewarepalm software that syncs your palm clock to your PC clock - I don't remember the name (haven't needed the accuracy before, y'know? If an alarm goes off 30 seconds fast or slow, no big deal.), but I know there's one out there.

Any chance of a peek at the source? I still sorta remember Pascal, it could be fun to tinker with. :)

Another update for Final Fantasy XI Timer for Palm.

Added the ability to view upcoming days by moon phase and added the Carpenters' Landing barge to the ship schedule.

I also have reduced the requirements to Palm OS 3.0, but I haven't had a chance to test it yet, so there might be functions that require Palm OS 3.5 in there that I forgot about.

I tried to set up an volume control for the Countdown Timer, so you don't have to turn on annoying system sounds to use it, but I couldn't get it to work.

There's a shop called The Marble Bridge in Upper Jeuno which will only allow you entrance on specific days based on race or job or allegiance.

The Final Fantasy XI Timer for Palm has been updated with the revised Carpenters' Landing barge schedule and the Manaclipper schedule has been added.

Also a new feature has been added so that the left and right button on Palms with "5-way" controls with cycle through the different views.

Also the cities involved in the Ballista Detail should be corrected.

This is probably asking too much, but do you have any plans to add a "todo" checklist and alarm features? That would make it really nice for serious gardeners...

Final Fantasy XI Timer for Palm has been updated to include crafting guild shop hours and locations. I also fixed a bug where the Palm would crash if the left or right bottons where pressed on the Time Adjustment page.

I suspect I'm missing some guild shop locations. I know there is one in Bibiki Bay, but I'm not sure if it is a fishing shop or some other kind. I think there is also a fishing store on the Mhaura/Selbina ship, but I not sure of its hours.

I'm also not sure of the Colour Chip Goblins all close on Firesday or only the San d'Oria one.

You rule.


That being said, when this thing does everything that retail FFXI clock does (Or does it already?!) I'll be firing it up! I haven't touched my handheld since I quit needing to note work schedules and such.

I only skimmed the post, but I'm going to look more into this. This is something I've been wishing for, for quite a while now!

Post Update:
------------------------------------

Wow! This thing entirely replaces the retail clock! I sure hope not too many people wasted $40 on that clock, now that there's a program they can use to do it (provided they have even an older handheld.)

Okay I am about to install this to my new palm (yes I can be a toys freak... Tungsten E2)

So far everything I have seen about this is great! Major rate up for you.

If you can ever get a gardening log and the skill cap calculator on it that would be great. Something like that Pocket PC one listed on your site.

First I've released a new version of Final Fantasy XI Timer for Palm with World Time that displays the current time from the Japanese, Pacific, Eastern and United Kingdom time zones and added the EXP chain countdown to the countdown timer.

It has been also updated to calculate Daylight Savings Time correctly for pre PalmOS 4.0 devices. If you had to adjust the time in the "Time Adjustment" for Daylight Savings Time, you'll have to take out the adjustment.

I'll see about adding a skill cap calculator with the skill chain calculator. I'll put the gardening log on my list. The features I add are coloured by how I play the game and what I need as a Black Mage.

I cannot port this to other OSes. It is written for the native PalmOS API and most of the work involves getting the interface right. It would be easier to start fresh then try to get this to work for other devices.

If you buy an old Palm III and Palm V the Final Fantasy XI Timer should work on it and you can buy those old devices on eBay for prices that may be conpetative with the offical Final Fantasy XI clock.

wow excellent piece of software

I dusted off my old palm Vx and installed it and its helping me alot. thank you thank you ^^

If you are open to taking suggestions on more features ^_^d
Hows about including a NM list on what lvl it is, which map, pos and items that are dropped from it.
Hows about a beatiary on weaknesses and strenths, what they aggro to and other info.
Ok one more lol Hows about the SC calculator when you enter the jobs, job lvls and weapons and it works out which SC are available and what MB is needed.

they are just suggestions. the software is awesome and most helpful already, keep up the good work ^^

Peace

I don't have a palm, but i couldn't help but read all the updates. A renkei calculator would be pretty sweet (unless I missed that in the update history?). Just put in the jobs/weapons that will be used in the renkei and you're set.

I also liked your suggestion for competitively priced retro palms as an alternative to the ultra-commercialized Vana'diel timer. (As we all know, something like that gets rarely updated/improved seeing as it's hardcoded.)

Rock on.

I'm still interested in seeing a Renkei (Skillchain) calculator for PalmOS that will let me input what weapons/levels our party is using, thus showing available skillchains.
