EVE Mission Counter

Don't know about you but I am kinda forgetful when it comes to remembering how many missions I run for particular faction (any NPC corp agent on the same level) when working towards faction standing and I can never tell how many more I need to run to get a storyline mission. You could look at the agent's standings to inspect all contributing transactions but with time it becomes easy to lose track especially if you are running missions for multiple NPC corps within same faction. 

Using tool is simple. Install, add characters you want to keep track of then every time you hand in your mish click the +1 button to increase selected level count. You can also edit numbers in place if you want to start from a different count (press F2 or double click the number to edit). Next time you launch EVEMC all counts will load up and you can continue clocking up from where you left off. After 16 missions the count will reset. To add new, change or delete an existing character right-click on its name and select relevant command. To switch to skinned mode select the count you will be increasing then click Skin Mode button. Mini counter can be moved around the screen by dragging the count number to desired location. To exit skin mode right-click on the number.

This freeware is provided 'as is' without any direct or implied warranties. In return I appreciate feedback on how you use it and any suggestions of how it could be improved. In the future, depending on the interest, I might consider building online database and adding synchronisation mechanism so counts could be easily shared between computers if you are playing on more than one.

I hope you will find EVE Mission Counter useful as much as I do.

Assuming you already have .NET4.0 installed this program requires no installation.

EVE must be run in Windowed mode for counter to work, it will not display when game is in full screen mode.

Note: I have received malicious software warning when I downloaded program to Windows 7 PC. That is a false positive and there is nothing to worry about. I guarantee the program does not contain any viruses or trojans and there is nothing susspicious happening in the code. I am more that happy to provide C# source if you prefer to compile program yourself. Read more abour false positives on Symantec website. Due to that you might need to unlock program before you run it. To unlock right click on the EVE Mission Counter.exe and select Properties then on General tab click Unlock button.
