Halo Reach MLG Weapon Respawn Timer app for Android - 09-28-2010 , 03:52 PM


My buddy (Frank) and I (Tom) made a free Android application to notify you onscreen and by sound when the important weapons in the MLG settings have respawned.

Here's a screenshot...


You just press the button and it does all the work, and will play warning sounds at 10, 20, or 30 seconds before the weapon spawns and when it actually does spawn.

We have a website up for it, and it can be found completely free and ad-free on the android market by searching for "halo reach mlg timer"

This is very cool, but not really related to the kind of news we post here (tips, tricks, etc).

You should email Louis Wu over at halo.bungie.org about this - I'm sure he'd love it.

:)

Nice work, this has given me inspiration to make a Windows application which is all about Halo. I have some good ideas which could work...

I will not put them here but it can be helpful!

Wish I had an android... what language was this written in?

Sorry I haven't visited your site yet if it says.

It's written in Java. The Android SDK tools are amazing and easy to work with if ya have some programming experience.

Ohhhh My God.

I love you. I always wanted someone to make one of these for me to be able to use on my Droid in Halo 3, but nobody ever did. Thanks so much.

I'll definitely use this while playing MLG, because right now I have no clue what the spawn times are like for Reach haha.

Thanks again dude. I'll leave some feedback after I DL it and give it some use.


I'll miss this website more than words can describe. I'm so incredibly sad to see it go. I want to say thanks to all the staff that have kept this place up and running for all this time. I'm proud to have been a part of such an amazing website and such a great community. Thanks for all the wonderful memories.

Farewell, HIH.

thanks a lot man. it's our first app, but we care a lot about making it the best we can!

we are adding a non-mlg mode soon, which will mean you will have to reach over and tap a button to start a timer when you pick a weapon up. kind of distracting to have to do that during gameplay, but people seem to want it.
