EDIT: Nadyita was able to dump the item database as requested by Oskari. Let’s hope he can update Auno!
EDIT 2: AUNO IS UP TO DATE!

The item database was just updated to version 18.8.53, thanks Leite & Nadyita!
A month ago I tried something out of the blue, sent an e-mail to email@example.com asking him kindly to update the database, while taking the chance to thank him for all this years of dedication to AO.
Today I got an answer:
Hi Rui Pedro Leite,
I haven’t played Anarchy Online for years and no longer have it installed anywhere. To be able to update the item database, I would need to get a dump of the item database extracted by this tool: https://auno.org/dev/adbd/
If you can figure out how to compile and run it - and if it indeed still works on today’s verison of Anarchy Online - please upload the dump files somewhere and I’ll try to update the site with the new data.
The problem is that I have no idea how to do what he asks, anyone can help so we could resuscitate one of the best AO websites ever?
Thanks all <3
Good idea, i always liked auno more than any of the other similar sites. Mostly thanks to the comments.
I dont know how to do it either, but i hope we might have a kind soul able to.
another option would be to grab the comments from auno and add them to aoitems.com but Demoder is resisting this for reasons known to Demoder.
what I do (and maybe many others) is check the item on aoitems (because of being up-to-date) and click the link to auno for comments.
As i think the largest variety of option is always better to have, i’ll try to contact Auno (again, as i tried monthes ago without success …) and see if i can be of any help in DB extraction. Gratz for contacting him, Auno’s site has always been a nice tool in complement to Demoder’s Aoitems and other projects around.
PS : i’ve contacted Auno ; the adbd program he used isn’t compatible with new AO DB RessourceDatabase.dat format ; i’ve informed Auno about this as i’m no C dev expert ; if anyone is skilled enough to help on fixing this, feel free to PM me
PS2 : so far i only managed to recompile the C code to obtain a new working 0.3.1 .exe but with same error (43 = “version incompatibility” according to Faircom’s ISAM documentation) than the 0.3.0 .exe present on auno’s page ; i played around with a few number settings and also with different ctree .dll versions to see if it changes anything, but i’m stucked here for now …
PS3 : here’s the code i have so far => https://github.com/bitnykk/adbd anyone wanting to contribute is welcomed !
Auno is the best because of the many comments over the years.
UPDATE - Nadyita was able to dump the requested files, already sent the link to Auno, lets hope Oskari updates it
WOW. AUNO IS UP TO DATE !!!

Awesome, thanks guys!
I’ve always liked Auno the most in terms of layout, visuals and responsiveness. Not to mention the useful comment section.
I was even determined to learn some C++ to help you with this, glad I don’t have to (not that I wouldn’t want to learn something new but I don’t have a lot of spare time for that)
Glad he answered someone. We told him this in 2012 and he pretty much ignore us. Good work as always Bity!
Great news <3 - Long LIVE AUNO!
Everything’s fixed thanks to Nad (and also Xyphos) ; the working dumper is available at https://github.com/bitnykk/adbd
AUNO updated…I never thought I would see the day.
Thank you all those who contributed to making this happen.
I actual scrapped all comments there sometime ago and dumped them in sql , I wangted to make a items lookup for out bot with that infomation.
Might add to bebot as new plug
… how heavy is it all please ?
