    Hi,

    at first i have to thank you very much.
    This nice little piece of software safes me a lot of time (even though it took muc time to set up all site ids :))

    It seems to work quite fine... except of one addon: Auctioneer
    I have told WUU to look at 'AuctioneerComplete' for new versions but WUU seems to ignore the beta releases stored there.
    How can i tell WUU to use the beta releases instead of the stable one?

    Keep up the great work!

    Best regards
    X-buZZ


    Thanks!
    Yeah, sorry, the current version of WUU won't grab beta versions (except from wowace ;)) - I'll add that as soon as I finalize 1.0 (so it'll be in 1.1 or 1.2).

    Also, if you had many addons not in the master list, could you please send me an export file? My email is on the page - I'll add the file to the master list, and it'll be easier for future users ;)

    _________________________________________________

    I've taken the opportunity to update the WUU webpage a bit. I've gotten some complaints that WUU seemed like much work to get started with, so I've removed the old list with stuff that mostly applied to version 0.4 with a simple step-by-step ;D Some of the questions from this thread have also been added to the new FAQ there.

    What's happened to the site?


    The server was unexpectedly assigned a new IP while I was gone :( I saw it was "down", but I couldn't do anything about it since...well...sun and beach and stuff ;D

    So, the latest on my adventure with WUU. It was only updating the wowace addons before. My assumption that it wasn't saving the siteid's for addons from other sites was correct.
    My solution.
    • I exported "all addons" to my desktop.
    • I manually entered the siteid's.
    • I saved the file.
    • Then I opened WUU again and imported "addons" from the desktop file I just edited.
    • I clicked yes to install ( these were mine anyways.)
    • I went to file and saved.
    • Then I scanned, checked online version and upgraded all.
    Works like a charm. :)

    It is now working for every addon in my directory from curse, wowi, ui.wow and wowace. (Except for the new autoprofit which downloaded as a .rar, lol. Seems we can't do .rar in wuu yet. :P I put in a request to Cathmor (the guy who adopted autoprofit at curse) to use .zip.

    We shall see. :) That little autoprofit addon has been my thorn for too long! Just wish there was an ace2=. ;)


    Nice :)

    WUU should support .RAR files on Windows with no problems - it's the only format except .zip supported (use zip like normal people!!!1one *shakes fist*)

    Also, I think Minimalist has that "auto sell greys" functionality ;)

    _________________________________________________

    As for the other bugs (specifically the unicode bug), I'll fix them in week 2 or so, sorry - I've been sick since the 22nd, and I'm going on a week's vacation next Sunday - after I'm back, I'll make another (the last?) WUU 1.0, and start working on the new branch.

    The reason some addons won't update correctly from Curse, is that WUU tries to download release versions, while the only 2.0 compatible for some mods (like Cryolysis) are tagged as beta. WUU 1.1 will have an option per-mod to also check the beta version on Curse. Another per-mod option I'm going to add is "no-ext preferred" from WoWAce (all per-mod options may be set to default to either enabled or disabled depending on what you prefer ;)). I'll also add an option to delete the mod directory before updating - it's simple for WoWAce mods, but other sites often have several directories in one zip, so I have to finish the code I've written to handle that.

    Grr... what am I doing wrong? I just copied what you had...




    I know its possible because it worked for metamap....but that one was pre-done by you...I feels like its not "saving" when I do it. When I click on it again...its blank, like I haven't filled it out before. Does that make sense?


    Strange :( I'm torn between making 1.0 work "perfectly" on all OS'es, just continuing to 1.1 and fix it there, or...take a holiday break :P

    In any case:

    WUU 1.0.121
    WUU 1.0.121 source

    1.0.121 (2006.12.22):

    * Bugfix: AuctioneerAddon.com works now (1.0.121)
    * Better Mac support (1.0.119)

    Site-ID's for non-WoWAce addons have to be set manually if they're not in the master list.

    For instance, AutoProfit, has the URL http://www.curse-gaming.com/en/files/details/1417/autoprofit/

    The site ID for AutoProfit at CurseGaming, then, is 1417/autoprofit

    (the site ID formats for the different sites are explained on http://wuu.vagabonds.info/ :))

    WUU 1.0.119 source (for Linux/Mac)

    - Changes how the UI works on non-Windows OS, hopefully fixing the hangs (no changes for Windows, so I won't put out that version today ;))

    You have to hit "Check online version" (and let it finish with all the addons) before selecting "Upgrade all", otherwise it...won't do anything, I think?

    EDIT: I had to try; "Upgrade all" should upgrade your "pink" addons - what does WUU.log (in the same directory as WUU) say?

    EDIT2: I think I know why it works that way...Python in Windows has a different way of handling threads :| I'm fixing how I create threads in 1.1, but I'll do a simple patch to 1.0 to make it not use threads on Mac/Linux - the UI will then "hang" on each task you start (like "Check online version" will not update the UI until EVERY addon is checked), but at least it'll work :P)

    Ok, I hate to point out my ignorance but how do I take a screenshot? Is it f13 like in game? and where would the screenshot go? lol =P ( soooooo embarressed. )


    Question, when I opened WUU this morning several of the addons floated to the top and were highlighted in pink....what does that mean? Like are those the ones that hae updates? Or need to be upgraded? or not classified right?


    Pink = Not updated thru WUU yet (may be un-updatable, too)
    Yellow = Needs an update

    http://digitalmedia.oreilly.com/2006/01/01/mac-os-x-screenshot-secrets.html talks about screenshots in OSX - seems like it's Command+Shift+4 (I don't know these things :P)

    "106 addons upgraded" What a sweet message!

    It seems after I do anything I have to force quit out though. My pinwheel just keeps spinning. Is this an "operator problem" or still a little buggy? :) Even with the force quit of python, I will keep using. Love it.


    Nice :D Can you get me a screenshot? :)

    There's some "concurrency issues" if you try to do too much at once - like upgrading an addon while it's scanning for versions, and stuff - which might hang it. I'm fixing that "on the way to 2.0", I guess ;)

    The way I use it, is usually "1) Check new versions, wait until ALL addons are checked 2) Upgrade all, wait until it's done"

    WUU 1.0.118
    WUU 1.0.118 source (for Linux/Mac)

    1.0.118 (2006.12.21):

    * WUU [Ignore]s folders that are checked out from svn by default (for mod authors - a folder containing a .svn folder is auto-ignored permanently, until the .svn folder is removed) (1.0.118)
    * Added AuctioneerAddon.com as a new download site (1.0.118)
    EDIT2: * Bugfix: Updating with the master list won't change your [Ignore]d addons (1.0.118)

    (The jump in the revision number is due to me relocating the files on the SVN server, effectively adding 15-ish revisions)

    EDIT (to prevent m-m-m-multipost!!11): This is probably one of the last revisions of 1.0 (barring "show-stopping bugs"), then I'll start working on...1.1 (which will eventually become 2.0), I guess - but I'll probably let them update separately, so if you want to go from 1.0 (stable) to unstable you have to download the unstable manually ;)

    To explain my version numbers (major.minor.revision): the major version number is updated when I feel a release is stable, the minor version number is updated when I change the XML format (and reset to 0 every major version), and the revision is pulled straight from the SVN revision of WUU.py.

    Question before I try this -- does it ignore svn working directories?


    Not automatically, but you can set the directories to "[Ignore]" to have WUU skip them. I'll release a version later today which will "cement" the [Ignore] status so it won't change when syncing with the master list. Should I make it have a special ignore for directories containing a .svn folder?

    EDIT: that's what I'm doing, making a new version over my lunch break now ;)

    If my pinwheel(hourglass) has been spinning for over 30 minutes is that a bad sign? Or is it taking that long because I have 145 addons? Just wondering what other people experienced the first time hitting update.

    Thank you for all the help!





    It WILL download EVERY addon, so it might take a while - could you post the output of "tail WUU.log" here? :)

    Ok I got this error


    Python Error

    Can't load image from file "WUUmain.ico": file does not exist.


    Any ideas? I can see the updater open though! So we are close! =)


    Redownload http://wuu.vagabonds.info/files/WUU-1.0.117-src.zip please - I forgot to include the .ico :o

    I am on tiger.

    I have a wuu folder in there, but I put it in myself by dragging. (sheepish grin) Its the unzipped wuu from the download and contains many more files than what you have listed. (I take it there was some other way I was suppose to do that? :P)


    Thank you for taking the time to help me!


    The download contains the Windows only files, so it won't work, but I've simplified the process somewhat:

    Download http://wuu.vagabonds.info/files/WUU-1.0.117-src.zip (latest dev source) instead of doing all that SVN crap :P
    Install Python 2.4.4 (direct link to the .dmg)
    and wxPython 2.8.

    Install the Python thingies, unzip WUU, and run "python WUU.py" :D

    I got as far as step 3. WUU downloaded to my desktop. From there, I am lost. Nothing is happening. =(

    Of course, I am not a programmer and I am new to macs and have never heard of python or svn before.
    I downloaded everything. I was following this link for directions. http://www.chrisjdavis.org/university/svn-on-macos-x/ Well, I never figured out how to install the finder plugin either. I am sure its simple but I just don't know how. lol I was impressed I created a "checkouts" folder in finder, though. No idea where to go from here, though.

    Help would be appreciated but I understand if helping a noob to this may be a duanting task.


    I only have access to a friend with an old non-Intel mac, and I haven't tried OSX before :( I want to get this working somehow, tho :P

    You have a checkouts-folder, and a folder named wuu in there, with the following files?
    A  wuu/Wurm.py
    A  wuu/unrar.dll
    A  wuu/WUU.cmd
    A  wuu/WUUAbout.py
    A  wuu/WurmUnpack.py
    A  wuu/WUU.public.key
    A  wuu/WUU.py
    A  wuu/SevenZip.py
    A  wuu/WUUHelpers.py
    A  wuu/images.py
    A  wuu/WUUmain.ico
    Checked out revision 116.

    ...and by googling around I see that it's not that simple to get python and wxpython installed :(

    Are you using Tiger, Jaguar or Panther? (Leopard will simplify this, apparently ;))
