im looking for some help to change announcements of winners to the raid.
currently we are using bossauction and our winners are based off the 2nd highest bid +1 pt. id like to adjust the code to pick the 2nd highest bid, add 1 pt and then announce. Some tips maybe for what part of the lua to look in and what section of code to edit?
what if 3 matching tokens dropped off 1 boss? would i be able to have it pick 3rd highest +1?
if this is too complicated i can jsut keep using manual look at the winner list and announce via vent :D
thx for any input
I already announce the Cost of an item in BossAuction. To do this I hooked DKPmon's Announce function. I just call GetCost for the item and print it right after the item's announcement. However, the right way to do it is probably to modify DKPmon and add a OnAnnounce method to the interface. For DKPsystems that don't implement it a default function would be called with the behavior DKPmon has now. Eraslin, if you do this, could you also add on OnMasterLoot in case people want to announce in guild chat who won an item.
The multiple token thing is annoying. For BossAuction silent bidding the cost for both winners should go to the 3rd person + 1. I tell all the bidders to bid the same amount on both items. Inevitably not everyone does. After bidding, what I do right now is select player A on one item, player B on the other item. Player B will have the correct cost. Then I refund player A the difference in their cost vs what player B paid.
To correctly handle this case the items would have to be grouped into one button or else a bid to one item would be duplicated to the other. Then the GetCost function would have to check for duplicates and compute the cost accordingly.
Eraslin, do you think there should be a item ignore list in DKPmon to ignore items like Badges of Justice? Or is this the responsibility of the dkp system module to ignore?
Also, I'm close to a release candidate for my dkp web app, which handles multiple pools and DKPmon imports. Hopefully I'll have it out today or tomorrow. I just tried modifying DKPmon_XML to export a giant string of all your logs so that it'd be easier to get started with the web app. Turns out it crashes Wow. I guess they don't check the limit on the edit box text string or something. Anyway, people will have to upload logs one by one. I'll make a post here when I have a release ready.
