Obviously, your not familiar with Excel and Macros. Otherwise, you would appreciate what he created allot more.
That’s right! I really admire Cary’s work.
That’s right Smotrs…. The guy sure knows his Excel stuff. Would love to see the code to do this.
you sir… are my hero.
i can only hope to have the excel god powers you now possess
Insane! Will be taking a gander at this one for sure.
really funny!! great work, my highest lvl before died was 33 =)
Way too much time on your hands Cary, but a fantastic job :)
Bull shit. We all have this much time on our hands. He just used it to make something.
Hey I am so grateful I found your blog, I
really found you by mistake, while I was researching on Google for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say cheers for a fantastic post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design),
I don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have saved it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the fantastic job.
This is too cool. As someone who has spent way too many hours on a business worksheet, seeing that you made something that is fun out of it has excited me. :-)
Awesome! I’m glad to hear that! :)
macro in office sucks.. really fun, and huge work you have done. nice done :o)
sublime work :D i never expect pass 3 hours in row playing with a game made in excel !!
Will be so helful if you describe how the stats works for example accuracy.
Thanks! Accuracy improves the damage of ranged attacks. You might want to have a look at the wiki page here: http://arenaxlsm.wikia.com/wiki/The_Basics for more information.
Thanks that is the i was looking for. And a but or i don’t know if it is a bug. when you get a weapon with some modifier (+5 of energy to enemy steps) for example and you die when you inmediatly start a new game you preserve that modifier even if you have only your bare hands.
You are probably playing on an old version of the game. Download the latest version (v1.1b) here: http://carywalkin.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/arena-xlsm-version-1-1-released/
Thanks! i just discovered this game and have been playing for a while now! very entretaining! GREAT job!
Pretty impressive…albeit quite laggy because it’s in excel.
One thing to note: You might want to change those skill icons in your spell book…don’t want Blizzard to sue you for ripping off Diablo.
I’d love to change the spell icons, if anyone is willing to contribute art for credit then I will change it asap. I don’t think I can get sued given that it’s for non-commercial purposes but I’m not a lawyer.
WAY COOL Tried to do an MORPG in Excel once a few years back. (multiplayer, not massively multiplayer mind you) You can imagine how it went.
Glad I found this page Cary. This looks CRAZY interesting. Downloading it now.
