Importing Wowroster data back into wow

Postby gimp8gimp » Mon Oct 09, 2006 3:38 pm

Does it exist or is it possible to query the wowroster database and bring data back into wow while in game, for instance the guildbank and future DKP addons etc.

Thanks :flower: for any help

Hi
It is possible to load data back into the game but there are a few things to remember.
One is that you cant get new info once the game is running, it has to be loaded into a lua file before the game is started, there is no real-time access to the game.
Another one is that the data would have to be structured as lua array, to be imported into a lua file, accessible by whatever addon you choose/make to use the data.

Other than that its a great thing to get data back into the game. UniUploader allows you to specify one such destination file and gives you the option to update the game data before the launch of wow or after.
Obviously you'd choose - before the wow launch - to have the most recent data ingame.

I can tell you more about it if you're interested.

if you are looking for a way of getting data into game

try looking for an addon caled getdkp
this does similar, im sure you could rip the code that does just that, and turn it into what you want.
there is also the shopping addon for wow roster that also does the same, and this has intigration with
uniuploader/uniadmin, so again im sure you could find out how to do things
by looking at these 2 addons.
