The new version "+" of Anarchy Online Items Assistant, working with the last patch Anarchy Online v18.6.9, is here on Athen Paladins servers.

Download link:

http://www.athenpaladins.org/down/AO_It ... .1.6.2.zip

"AO Items Assistant +" is a "fork" (new development branch) of AO Items Assistant ("AOIA")

Download and unzip the zip file to any empty folder of your hard disk, then read the readme text file for the install. (Install is as simple as putting of the file in a foler and telling AOIA where your AO files are/)

I'm a noob:

I can't locate the AO directory using the the +/- boxes (because it's hidden)

How do I tell my system to open up the folder so I can see where it's located?

AO folder shouldn't be hidden.

It's something like :
C:\Funcom\Anarchy Online

or the Funcom folder is inside on of the "programs" folders depending on your system.

To make all hidden folders visible:

In Windows File Explorer:

- Click on "Tools"
- Then on the tab "view"
- Then in the category "hidden files and fgolders" select "show", close; you can now see your previously hidden folders
- you can revert to "hide" by following the same procedure

If the FC or AO folders happen to be hidden, once you have located them, r-click if, properties, and then uncheck "hidden".

But TBH I would be surprised they are hidden. It's maybe another issue.

Do you have an AO shortcut? Then r-click it and somewhere you have "open file location". This will open the AO folder so you can see where it is.

I found it, my prefs are stored in a hidden folder, but the actual install is on my F drive, which is why I couldn't find it.

Thanks for your help though chris.

I'm having issues with Item Assistant. Everything was working fine until I transferred my doctor from one account to the other.

I rename my bags on my characters, often as simply as "_01", "_02", etc. Sometimes I add more info to the bag names like "_Nanos_01", etc.

When I transferred my doc I lost all the preferences in AO. None of my bags in-game were named anymore. This was not totally unexpected. Bredindoc still appeared in my AOIA however, now under both accounts. I figured, no problem, I will just delete the toon from the original account in AOIE. My problem i that the bag names from the first account persist in AOIA, no matter what I do. I rename a bag in-game, put it in my bank, back in inventory, the name never is updated in AOIA.

I did a completely fresh install of AOIA. Unzipped into a totally clean directory. Had to re-browse to my Anarchy Online account and everything. When I started anarchy online after this re-install I saw that Bredindoc is still listed on both accounts, still with those old bag names.

Arrgg!

The program creates some files when you run it (ItemAssistant.conf, ItemAssistant.db, and aoitems.db). It also creates the "binfiles" directory with a file for each toon. I don't understand where the names I gave my bags are mapping to the actual bags if not in one of those files.


I bought a new small backpack. I saw it pop into my inventory on AOIA. I put a pearl in the bag, and seconds later saw the pearl in AOIA. I renamed this new backpack in the game, and saw it renamed in AOIA. I attempted to rename one of my older bags, no change was reflected in AOIA.

It's frustrating that Anarchy Online is so archaic in these ways that we need to rely on 3rd party software for basic functionality. I wonder if there are any alternative inventory management tools out there? Ugh. Maybe I should develop my own. Ugh again.

EDIT: Problem Solved

So, when you transfer characters a character folder is left in the Prefs subdirectory for the original account. This seemed to break AOIA somewhat. I deleted teh character subdir for my doctor in the folder for both my accounts. I then renamed all my bags (again) and all seems ok.
