Tinkerfite is a player-made tool for the science-fiction MMORPG Anarchy Online. One of the outstanding difficulties in Anarchy Online is deciding which weapon to use. With over 10,000 weapons available, the "right" choice isn't always clear...assuming you eve know what all the options are. Tinkerfite sets out to help alleviate that problem by suggesting weapons you can use based on your stats and skills, so you're always making an informed choice.
How accurate is it?
As accurate as I can make it using the best information the AO player community has to offer. I won't claim that it's perfect in every case, though, so if you find an inaccuracy, please get in touch and I'll get it fixed. The DPS calculations make some necessary assumptions (all attacks land and never miss, for example), and some educated guesses (attack rating bonus > 1000) and so are a little idealized, but still reasonable.
What's included in the DPS?
The DPS calculation accounts for weapon hits, critical strikes, attack rating bonus, added damage, and special attacks. Damage output is calculated for a 60 second window, and divided to give damage per seecond.

Big thanks to Auno for creating the Anarchy Online database dumper I used to make Tinkerfite, and to Bitnykk for updating it to support later versions of the game. Also thanks to the AO-Universe team and all the wonderful AOWiki authors for the excellent guides on combat mechanics. And, of course, big thanks to Saavick, Starkness, Caloss2, and KelticDanor for their early feedback. Tinkerfite wouldn't have been possible without all these fine folks, and I truly appreciate their efforts.
How can I help?
Finding and reporting bugs is best, but if you'd like to help with hosting costs I certainly won't complain. I happily accept donations via Patreon and cryptocurrency.
