The program can only work while you are in windowed mode or if you have some secondary machine that can run a set of Visual Basic excel macros as you have to manually input the successes either with the shortcut or clicking the appropriate button, this is not a bot, merely a way to keep track of your gathering session.
It's in .xlsm format and was created with Excel 2007, so it should work fine with 2010 but I don't know about backwards compatibility. It's also completely unlocked and only starts manually, so feel free to peruse the code.
Instructions: -Open the file in Excel -If you haven't enabled the developer tab, do so -Enable macros -On your first successful gather, hit "Start Gathering", it will add a success to the counter, record the start time and start the timer -On each additional success, you can click "Add Success" or use the shortcut "ctrl + g", it will increment the "Successful Gathers" cell -The "Corrected Gathers" cell represents your total successes minus the amount of fatigue regeneration that has occurred since you began (it subtracts 10 for each hour that passes from the beginning of your session) -When you are finished using the counter, either click "Stop Gathering" or let the program run until the fatigue resets completely (i.e. overnight) -Clicking "Stop Gathering" will auto-save your start time and total gathers to the first available slot -After stopping, save the file, when you re-open hit "Restart Clock" to start the timer without resetting your start time (use the save slot info in case your time or gathering count are reset) -If the program runs until fatigue is reset, click "Stop Gathering" to stop the timer, then "Clear Data" to erase the total time and gather cells -You'll also want to clear the save slot data that you no longer need, once all three slots are filled it will not save again
That's all there is to it, after you erase the data you are back to square one. The counter can count across months and shouldn't require a large system resource drain, mileage on that may vary of course. Also, if someone would like to take this and turn it into a Windows Gadget (or Keyboard LCD app if possible) feel free to do so, I don't know how to code either of those though so that'll be up to you, I'll be happy to help however I can.
Note: This counter operates on the assumption that the gathering fatigue timer in game begins when you first pull something in from a gather, if that is later found to not be the case I'll work on modifying it then.
