Inventory Management System

What is Adria?
Adria is an item manager and tradelist maker utility program for the Blizzard game Diablo 2. In other words it is designed to ease the creation and maintenance of an ”outgame” database of your ”ingame” items. It also helps you make tradelists for postage on forums.
Note: This program is specifically made by and for members of the diii.net forums. It is designed to not break the rules of the diii.net boards and to provide members with an as legit as possible program for use on the battle.net (bnet) servers. For single player you will be better advised to use SP specific programs such as ATMA and/or GoMule instead of Adria.
Who may want it?
Those who actively trades on forums, or someone who has more then just a handful characters. Basically any bnet diablo 2 player who feels the need to organize their items, for their own sake or for the sake of others.
Why use it instead of excel/notepad/etc?
This application does provides you with a database interface similar to that of a media player, where artists, albums and songs have been replaced with accounts, characters and items. The big selling point is however the method of how you populate this database. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) allows the program to read the text from a picture and translate it into the text you would otherwise have to type yourself.
Another selling point is the easy to use but very customizable tradelist printer.
Is this legit?
Yes, at least from my standpoint. From reading the Diablo EULA and the Battle.net TOS I could only find this point that is somewhat relevant:
[BLUE="Battle.net TOS"]4. Your Use of Battle.net. A. You are entitled to use Battle.net for your own personal use, but you shall not be entitled to
(v) use any third-party software to modify Battle.net to change game play, including, but not limited to cheats and/or hacks; [/BLUE]
- Adria does not modify battle.net, or Diablo 2 for that matter.
- Adria does not change your game play, but rather the things around it. It changes the task of writing down your item information by hand to an automatic process. It provides some information you would otherwise visit Arreat Summit for. Both those tasks don't affect the real game play while you actually ”play”, but they may lower the idle time between playing as your side tasks can be done quicker (assuming you would have done the side tasks anyway).
- Adria does not hack the game code, or battle.net. The only communication between Adria and Diable 2 is in the form of a screen capture routine. Adria works with images, not game code, just like any program for recording movies of the game play such as Fraps or Hypercam.
Is this a scam?
No … but why would you believe our word for it unless you already trust us? If you're feeling insecure then ask around. I'm sure the other users will know if they've been scammed or not.
That said this program DOES utilize a keyboard hook. Adria uses this hook to allow the user to activate its functions without having Adria in focus. Think of it as how a media player gets to use the media keys of most modern keyboards, "next track" just happens to be "scan item" or "add character" in this case.
Is this safe to use here?
This program was specifically designed for these forums, meaning that it must abide to its rules. It doesn't interact with the Diablo 2 game code in any way, and the source code has been inspected by the Admins of diii.net before release.
Still, you must understand that this is an evolving project. We cannot ask for the source code to be looked over at each and every update, unless we make the updates very few in number.
So where can I get this?
The program is avialable for download on google-code, which also provides a wiki and a page for you to submit errors.

You can connect either with your favorite irc client or using a web client.
This section will contain links to video clips showing how to perform most actions, both advanced and basic. It's still under construction, but once complete it should hopefully offer enough guidance to get you started on how to use adria.
