    Thunder

    Description
    This program emulates a user playing and sending game scores on Neopets, known as a score sender. The program is multi-threaded, pipelined, and advanced, allowing you to appear more human while sending more scores and getting more NP in a shorter amount of time.


    Main Features
    • Neofriends Activity Manager
    • "Smart Send" and "Messup" features
    • PAUSE feature within list
    • Smart List Reader (reads multiple formats)
    • Proxy support with Proxy Tester!
    • Advanced connection configurations for custom speed-performance adjustments
    • Integrated threading and pipelining means faster, more efficient, and more responsive.
    • User-friendly, modern GUI with mouseover tips
    • Notifications system from tray
    • Powerful theming engine and custom-colored progress bars
    • All settings are saved




    Neofriends Activity Manager
    Thunder only costs 1 forum cash point. However, you are required to have at least 5 posts within the last 10 days to use the program.


    Smart Send
    This is an optimized Neopoints mode that only sends scores if Neopoints will be rewarded. By default, this mode is enabled. Enable this when all scores are for profit. Disable this if avatar or trophy lists are being sent.


    "Messup" Feature
    Humans aren't perfect. No legitimate player achieves their desired score every single time they play a game. With the 'Messup' feature, the program will have an X% chance of messing up a score for A% to B% of the actual wait time. After messing up, the program will replay the game and send the desired score. This will decrease the chances of getting 'frozen' by TNT. This feature will affect the estimated minimum and maximum list times.


    List Formats
    Thunder features a flexible Smart List Reader. It detects case errors, random whitespaces, randomization errors, and even some vital missing parts of the format. This means, mistakes are forgivable and less of a hassle. Also, despite not being the preferred format, sLAUGHTER's score sending list format is supported by the Smart List Reader. The following are the default formats of the program.

    Red denotes required.
    Green denotes optional.
    Orange denotes optional but needed for some games. Modulus is sometimes required because some games only send in multiples (i.e. Meerca Chase II's scores are multiples of 8).

    [customtable=Format for Scores]GameID: %GAMEID% | Score: %MINSCORE%-%MAXSCORE% | Wait: %MINWAIT%-%MAXWAIT% | Mod: %MODULUS%[/customtable]
    [customtable=Format for Pauses]PAUSE(%MINPAUSE%-%MAXPAUSE%)[/customtable]

    Theming Support
    The theming engine in Thunder is powerful yet simplistic. It reads all PNG image files in the 'themes' folder and takes the name of the file as the theme name. This way, you can create your own custom themes and customize Thunder to the way you like it.





    System Requirements
    • Windows XP or higher

    Does this have proxy support by chance? I'll create a new account and use it via proxy to send scores and make some legitimate neopoints.

    And I told myself I wouldn't score send anymore...
    This is defiantly going to have to get a download.

    Also love the activity manager, great idea. Hopefully it will get a few more people talking on here.

    ^^ lol... even as a beta tester I needed the active post amount ;)

    This is one feature that will not be bypassed for Level V or Moderators. Only the creator himself ;)

    So If you wanna start using it, start posting and stay active. :)
