    This is an intermittent issue, so I know at the outset not easy to run down. For the past month or so, I occasionally see a "No One" (sometimes topping the damage done chart) oisted along with me and my teammates. On looking closer, the spells "No One" uses are the ones the boss uses, so how come?


    Through ever single update since I first posted about this, the issue remains the same, the boss gets listed along with my teammates. Very annoying.>:(

    I know this is inconsequential, but it looks like Recounts math isn't always correct. Was fishing, some mob aggroed, I did 237k damage over 4.74 seconds. 29k DPS??? Yes I was long out of combat (flew to the place). Later, I did 527 damage over 8.52 secs (single mob), math and Recount agreed, around 62k DPS.

    FWIW, regarding the file size issue I raised... I stopped it collecting time data for everything except for myself. File sizes went from ~48MB to ~32MB. My data is retained lunch to launch.

    Update (7/10): Let me down... file was 29MB, wiped on launch of the game. And this was ONLY the first 3 bosses in ToT.

    What I think might be uber cool for Recount to do... something along the lines of double clicking the title bar to "collapse" the window to just said title bar. Something that would save the size/positioning of both the full window and the "just title bar." Or have a bar widget that did it.

    Ah, indeed... did the second wing and ran back here to speculate as you both have! This time, the file was about 33MBbs and persisted through 2 re-launches... so I was going to say it may likely be a file size issue.

    Yes I always reset Recount before every raid run. I'll look through the prefs for time-based data... thanks.

    Curious, is the data stored in that file the raw stuff from the Combat log? So essentially it's dynamically parsed by Recount for display?

    Somehow it seems the parsed data may very well be much lighter... so naturally I ask if you could store parsed data to get around this limitation!

    Thanks Dridzt, yes I understand the writing to the file part! Mystifies me why only a raid run gets my Recount zeroed out to nothing... I know there are circumstances where it spits out WAY too many reset messages, I generally say NO to each of them.

    UPDATE: This should prove helpful (assuming Recount data being wiped out without warning isn't by design!). Did the first ToT wing. Quit the game. It's lua file <World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/<secret acct num>/Durotan/Brightbrown/SavedVariables/Recount.lua> was very big, 48MB worth. Copied it to my desktop. Relaunched the game to see my Recount being empty. Quit the game, the file is now 4k.

    Unless it is designed to do this (can't imagine why) there does seem to be a bug there. Remains to be seen if I copy the saved file back in, will it zero it again? Something tells me it will, as it SEEMS from what I've documented, it wipes it's data out (but ONLY for raid runs apparently). Almost, kinda, sorta like it has some issue reading a large file on game launch, so it zeroes it.

    UPDATE2: As I suspected, I replaced the wiped file with the big one I saved out and on re-launching the game, it got wiped again.

    I would like to know if this is by design, somehow I doubt it because normally, Recount does save it's data from launch to launch of the game. But it certainly does kill my desire to be able to go over the data in detail at some future time when I don't have as much to do in the game (i.e. like when I hit VP cap).

    Not sure if this has been covered before, but I like to use Recount as a tool for analyzing what I am doing and how effective I may or may not be running my rotation. As such, it would GREATLY benefit me if I could save the data from, say, a raid run and be able to recall it at a later date. Saving the data is trivial, but I DO realize that creating some i/o (to save and recall a file) may be an issue. If it CAN be done, it would be EXCELLENT (and would earn my undying gratitude)!

    So the question is "Is there a way to do this?" I THINK I see a way, but want to confirm if it will do what I want... it IS kind of a pain, but gets me INTO the ballpark.

    I find a .lua file (which seems to hold the data I want) at:

    World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/<my.secret.account.number>/<my.secret.realm>/Brightbrown/SavedVariables/Recount.lua

    Seems to me I can copy that file out (for something I want to save and recall later), then put it back in when I want to spend some time really going through it. I'm sure the "putting it back in" part needs be done with the game not running. One factor that may help my quest is to know how that file gets written to... i.e. is it always real time without needing logging out of the game for anything to happen (some applications don't properly close a file until the application is exited)?

    I actually just put in a ticket because for many weeks now I am seeing that ONLY after running a LFR, getting out of the game, then going back in 100% will zero out Recounts stats... while I will always see it's last state if it has NO raid data in it. Tuesday I'll look closer at this file to see exactly when the data gets tossed.
