Companion application for Conan

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Waiting for the release of the official application, I coded a site to accompany during a game of Conan.

The idea is to gather in one place resources that can be found in other places to make the games more fluid.

The site is intended mainly for tablets, it is the most convenient format to have next to a game board, I think.

 

For the moment, that makes:

  • Cards:
    dynamic lines of sight (which duplicates the application available on TO - but I try to keep myself up to date on the points in dispute),
    specific rules
  • Rules :
    display of game aids on skills (with adjusted texts mixing the original texts and the details at the end of the rules booklet; and modified to be connected between French and English: because in the official rules there are notably has a nice inconsistency on Sacrifice for example)
    complete rules, to quickly find a rule point during a game
  • Studio:
    creation of equipment cards,
    spell creation,

 

We can customize the extensions we have, to see more or less cards

 

What I would like to do:

  • Cards:
    add zoom, for phone use
  • Scenario:
    search and display a scenario without having to print it (save the planet) in the format adapted to the tablet (not just a pdf)
  • Studio:
    creation of character files,
    skelos tiles creation

The application can be found here: http://companion.byethost16.com/ 

 

Tip: On my android with Chrome, once on the site, I click on the Chrome menu, and I do "add to the home screen". It's a bit like an application and in particular, it's full screen all the time.

 

PS1: the application includes all the credits of the authors who helped or inspired 🙂

PS2: I hope not to offend anyone by offering this site ...
PS3: in the menus, you will find access to the Github to be able to declare bugs or "simple" improvement ideas 🙂
PS4: sorry for my english

I know this app isn't getting a lot of acknowledgement here, but this app is fantastic for both designing and playing scenarios. I have already found it very useful (as well as the other site Footballzs mentioned). I love the fan dedication to this game. 

 

I love the idea of adding scenarios to this app. Since you already added the ability for the user to mark which products they have, if you include sort/filter functionality for the scenarios, it would help people a lot.

 

As a creator of fan-made scenarios, I would love it if you included some fan-made scenarios, but quality control for that might be a significant task. Have you shared this on the Conan Facebook groups? 

 

Also, are you planning on adding anything for the upcoming solo/coop mode?

Since I helped debugging and translating this site/companion, I believe I can partially answer:

- Once the scenario library will be added, the "filter per product" function will certainly be there too. It already works for the boards (i.e. the boards you see are automatically filtered depending on the products you have selected in the "My expansions" menu).

- I might be wrong, but I do not think it is reasonably doable to add each and every fan-made scenario (the official ones might already be a dauting task). But including some of them should not add a tremendous workload. I'm thinking about the fan scenarios of the Compendiums/TO Mags, and the couples of Campaigns like the ones you co-wrote (Whispers from Stygia etc).

Hi.

 

Yes @Roolz is right.

I will first, add all the official scenarios.

Then depending on the schedule, I will add a connector to https://conan-scenarios.com/ 

And I will also add some of the fan-made scenarios we can find here.

 

The search engine will be nice I hope: it will use the expansions you declared for sure ; but you will be able to also see scenarios you cannot play directly if you want to proxy some characters. Additionally, you will be able to search a scenario to play with a given hero.

 

Thank you for your support!

For the search, I will also add somehing dedicated to the campains. Not sure exactly what, but maybe a separate search page....

 

For the coop/solo mode, I will see when it will be available, but I think so. Maybe it would mean two differents apps.

No, cause I'm not a FB guy. 🙂 but, please, can you do it for me?
