SSPX Phase Tango
I took a specialized selection of NPCs and save the HTML from the compendiu, I then ran the HTML though my new npc converter routines, attempting to "parsify" them. Each NPC was selected for a particular reason:
1) Beholder: those eyebeam powers look like crap without the backslash r embedding. I wanted to see if I could do that from the HTML
2) Angel of Valor: Whatever Angelic Presence is . This one still isn't 100% as it's not dropping the ZZX in the right spot yet. Plus it has a power without an icon (Fiery Blades)
3) Fire Archon Emberguard: It's a tutorial monster. Plus it has an aura
4) Firbolg Master of the Wild Hunt: Multi icon power (Mortal Strike).
So far they all look correct (except for the angelic presence). I should have that fixed soon. The next step will be automatic extraction, unfortunately I can't do that on my lunch hour at work as I don't have unlimited internet access.
I hope to do some larger scale tests this weekend.
