1. Hi guys, I'm back :)

    I have my addon basically completed, however I have to use an external application, similar to WoWHead's Loot tracker, to send the data to my server.

    So I am using VB.NET for this for now.

    Basically I am trying to convert `

     local function StringHash(text)
       local counter = 1
       local len = string.len(text)
       for i = 1, len, 3 do 
         counter = math.fmod(counter*8161, 4294967279) +  -- 2^32 - 17: Prime!
          (string.byte(text,i)*16776193) +
          ((string.byte(text,i+1) or (len-i+256))*8372226) +
          ((string.byte(text,i+2) or (len-i+256))*3932164)
       end
       return math.fmod(counter, 4294967291) -- 2^32 - 5: Prime (and different from the prime in the loop)
     end`
    

    into... ` Private Function StringHash(ByVal s As String) As Long

        Dim counter As Integer = 1
        Dim len = s.Length
        For i As Integer = 1 To len Step 3
            counter = ((counter * 8161) Mod 4294967279) + (Asc(s.Substring(i, 1)) * 16776193) + ((Asc(s.Substring(i + 1, 1)) Or (len - i + 256)) * 8372226) + ((Asc(s.Substring(i + 2, 1)) Or (len - i + 256)) * 3932164)
        Next
        Return counter Mod 4294967291
    End Function`
    

    However my VB.NET function doesn't seem to return anything.

    My goal is to have both programming languages return the same hash code from the piece of text.

    I realize this is a primarily LUA help but I figured some people will also know VB.NET as well. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I can't help with VBA. Perhaps someone else can.
