Pardon Our Dust

*blows the dust right in your face*
Welcome back, strangers and old friends! It's no secret that this website has seen quite a bit of neglect over the past few years, with more and more random bits breaking every now and then. But that neglect ends now!
I've been hard at work patching up the holes here and there, as best as I can anyways. 
Things like the Halo 5 Gamercards and the Halo 4 Avatars are back up and running! On the armory side of things you can now (finally) retrieve your Halo 5 Spartan and Emblem (only a couple of years late, I know). And the Halo 4 and Halo Reach spartan and emblems are working again as well. At least until 343i pulls the API rug on me again...
Additionally, I've been generally making the rest of the site functional again as well, including accounts, profiles, and the like. It's still not amazing, but for some reason 1330 people decided to register an account over the years despite the warnings for bugs and lack of functionality. It's nothing huge but it does mean a lot to me that so many of you even bothered to try that! 🥰
There's still a lot of work to do on this little corner of the internet, as I've been building it all from scratch over the years. No WordPress or anything like that behind the scenes. It's been a hell of a learning project, but luckily I'm never really done with learning! 
There's also a few other projects I've got going on at the moment, like a full redesign and rework of the website for Project: Contingency, a Halo fan game I've helped work on THAT YOU CAN CURRENTLY PLAY! The current version of that site is running on a modified version of the software I wrote for this website, so I've been optimizing that site at the same time. Even knowing I'm going to replace it with a site that's a 10x times better.

That's about it for this update, thanks for reading!

Custom avatars are here.

By UPLYNXED at 23:41 PM

As of right now, the brand new avatar generator is fully up and running.
You can now get a very customizable avatar from the armory, right here on Armor Watcher.
You can choose whether you want to show your emblem or not, whether you want to use an image as a background or a plain color, and whether you want to stand posed or in the default pose.
I may or may not add some more content to the generator in the near future, so you might end up having to regenerate your avatar when something major gets added, which for now seems unlikely.
Please hang on while we work out some of the bugs.
