    Is that toon name an alt? We've seen some errors for setting different bid names where the logs show the alt leaving the raid and the main joining every couple of minutes after bid names get set. We're trying to figure out where/why that's happening but it's only affected the logs, not our bidding. Which dkp system plugin are you using?

    Eraslin, we'll pack-up an update and fire it off to you. I'll read up on how to fix the packager here.

    We used DKPmon for TBC for loot distribution along with CTRT for tracking/export to our web site.

    With WotLK, DKPmon hadn't been updated and so we tried a lot of different mods. MorgDKP2/MorgBid2 came closest to being a solution but the whisper bidding was complicated for new guests to get right, items awarded didn't seem to update the database in real time and the export format did not work with our web system (bbDKP).

    We ended up updating DKPmon/Bidder to work with WotLK. We've also gotten the export functions working for our web site but are still using HeadCount as a back up logging function.

    DKPmon has worked well for us for two years so we're happy to have it working again in WotLK.

    For export to eqDKP there are a lot of tracking addons but the one that seemed strongest for us was Headcount. We found a new issue that none seem to address and that is handling out of range loot awards with master looting turned on. They all seem to miss the loot event if the recipient is out of range. We're using multiple raid leaders with Headcount to grab data.

    posted a message on HeadCount - Raid attendance and loot tracker
    I'm curious if there was any further consideration for the sync feature discussed earlier in the thread. The problem we're facing is that we have a raid leader handling loot via master looting and the raid continues clearing the instance. This means that loot events are often missed by the master looter's instance of HC but are captured by another. We then have to merge XML exports to get a complete picture of the run or manually add individual items (thanks for that element!).

    The sync feature would also provide some redundancy for the hard crash situation also discussed earlier when an entire loot log is lost. Reloading the UI periodically is possible but other mods such as our DKP tools may not recover as well as HC is currently.

    Another consideration would be to provide an API for receiving loot events and costs. We could add something to DKPmon/Bidder (the loot mods we use) to send HC a message as loot is awarded. We like the UI and overall tracking HC provides.

    If any of this has merit, I'm happy to write up the appropriate ticket(s).

    We've got two weeks of raiding under our belts with our updated DKPmon and things are working just fine. We tweaked the master loot option so that it would stay available even if it is turned off immediately after the boss kill. This way folks can continue clearing to the next boss while our leaders handle the DKP/loot.

    We're working on a few other enhancements at a leisurely pace including version checking for Bidder, ignored items (badges/emblems), etc.

    The eqdkp XML export works just fine but we're looking into writing a better import into web databases (we're currently using bbDKP for our web site).

    Not sure if we can get code pushed back into the current project repository eraslin manages. If anyone still has interest in this mod, feel free to send a PM via this forum and I'll put a snapshot of our tree together.

    We've gotten this working with the EPGP plugins for WotLK. Not sure how to best get the changes back into the trunk but we're willing to submit our fixes back to the community.

    We've tested Bidder, Bidder_EPGP, DKPmon, DKPmon_EPGP, DKPmon_EPGPCSV, DKPmon_XML

    We did some work with this and the initial test was to simply get all the libraries updated. The core mods still worked just fine once we did this. My raid group is doing a review to figure out what has to be added for Death Knights and we're testing import/export functions over the next week.
