Halo3X: An OS X Halo 3 Stats Viewer

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007
Not really relevant, but here’s a program I wrote a little while ago. Just some minor things, nothing to do with the announcement from the other day. Anyways, here it is…

Halo3X: An OS X Halo 3 Stats Viewer.


Written in pure Objective-C, this app pulls gamer data and pictures from’s website a presents it in a user friendly manner. It would be pretty easy to take this app and port it to the iPhone.

Note that this app is open-source, and source can be found here.

Edit (11/28). Updated the app, made the gamertag field a bit bigger so it can fit longer gamertags, added a new icon (thanks Wayward Spleen), and made pressing enter equivalent to pushing the look up button.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Something is Coming, Just Hang On…

No, this blog (and the site) is not dead, I just ran out of time/interest/resources to fuel them. Give me a few days (Thanksgiving break ftw) and I promise I’ll have something cool. It takes a while to adapt from high-level languages back down to C, but I’m getting close. This project is also more hardware based, which to me is just as fun (but more expensive) as software, I don’t know which one I’d rather end up doing.

BTW I’m looking for a GUI-dev to write a brief front-end. If you’re interested, email me ([email protected]). My computer still won’t compile Cocoa/ObjC code for the iPhone, only C and C++. And by brief, I mean brief. Like loading and displaying an image brief.

Later this week
