OH DEAR GOD THIS IS FRUSTRATING.
So, I've been fiddling around with Dorn's blademaster limb counter. I have absolutely no idea what's going on, but it seems like the stances are off.
It seems like it's decently accurate when I'm in Sanya, but that's about it. So, question time:
1. Has anyone else had a problem with this limb counter recently? If so, how did you fix it?
2. Is there a more up-to-date limb counter for BMs available, or is it a matter of bucking up and fixing it myself?
3. How does each stance affect the amount of limb damage your strikes inflict? For example, while the ABs for Sanya and Mir don't mention affecting the strength of limb attacks, it takes an extra hit to break a limb while in Mir when compared to Sanya.
Do note, I'm not trying to say Dorn's done a bad job, especially since he's made this thing free to the public. The version I have, however, is from a forum post from last year, so it's pretty reasonable to think some things have changed since then, heh.

I use my own cheap limb counter that only tracks number of hits, but from what little research I've done, I can definitely say that each stance seems to do a different amount of limb damage. Actually, each stance + slash type combination (I've assumed but never proven that arm/leg/centre slashes are the same, but compass and draw slash appear to be different) seems to do a different amount of limb damage.
The complexity plus me not having a ton of time is basically why I still use said cheap limb counter.
I've pretty much just reached the conclusion that the problem isn't the counter, but the inefficiency with which I have to break sometimes due to lacking airstrike

No seriously though. It's awesome.
Oh holy crap. It was like the 5th thread down on BM class section, had no idea it was so friggin old.
