Update 1.51 - Adventure Log Center!

With Jagex's release of the Adventure's Log, we have been pondering what exactly we could do with it. We identified where the browser-based interface was lacking and how we could improve it with SwiftKit RS. Thus, the Adventure Log Center was born. The Adventurer Log Center is located under the Utilities menu and consists of two sections, which are the Lookup and Notifications.


The Lookup tab is similar to the other lookups in SwiftKit. Entering a valid username (has membership, Adventure Log set to public) and searching will show all their recent activity, neatly arranged in a table with appropriate icons, date and description.

The Notifications tab is probably what makes this utility so great, and what we are most excited about. To start, simply enter the usernames of players you want to receive notifications for (you may add up to 15) and wait for one of them to do something worth logging in their Adventure Log. You'll get a pleasant surprise when you see a window glide upwards in the bottom-right of the client when one of your friends has achieved something. A demo of the notification is available at the bottom of the Notifications tab.

It is noteworthy that there are two separate delays with notifications. Jagex have an undefined delay when adding to your Adventure Log. It seems that the updates run on an approximately 5 minute cycle so the time for something to be added to your Adventure Log may will vary each time. The second delay is so that your connection (and Jagex's resources, for that matter!) doesn't get overloaded with requests. The fastest SwiftKit will check for notifications is 1 minute per username. If you have 3 usernames on your notify list you will be limited to a minimum time of 3 minutes to do a lookup on all 3.

We hope you will enjoy this utility just as much as we do! Remember if you have any suggestions, comments or a bug please let us know on the SwiftKit Forums

Changes and Fixes:
+ Adventurer Log Center added!
+ Fixed ImageShack uploader.
+ Fixed connection test in Diagnostics.
+ Added two new buttons to the internal Stats Lookup.
+ Changed the 'username' head icon to a better looking fella.
+ Changed the progress bar font to Verdana.
+ Fixed bug in Skills Calculator where the wrong images were loading.
+ Screenshot uploader now gives a helpful message if the upload failed.
+ Corrected a potential security flaw in Launcher.

P.S. Zpoon hasn't really ditched us, as you can see with the graphic above he's back from vacation. Zpoon has asked if everyone could please stop sending him emails either abusing him or asking why he left. :-D

@Stat Phantom the reason why they are different is to take into account Swiftkit:Stellar Dawn

Also to point out that The SwiftKit launcher, SK:RS and SK:SD are separate from one another.

Brilliant! one of the best releases yet i must say and I've been around since SwiftSwitch. Here's a sugestion, why don't you make the shortcut icon that appears on your desktop the same as the one that appears in the top left-hand corner of the window and on the task bar? in my opinion that icon would look better because the current one is a little dull.

@Claytonf89 it still does you need to login first for it to display.

For all you people who may be questioning SwiftKit's legality -- we use the 'lite' version of the Adventure Log to parse information from (the RSS feed).
