Server Status only shows "No Status"

Postby Buster2XLC » Thu Nov 01, 2007 2:25 am

Hi,

after i had installed the roster on my new host all is working perfect.
But now ive got a problem with the Server Status Symbol on the top right side. It only screens that there is "No Status".

But if i had read the other topic right it gets the name of Server etc. from Uploaded files so it has to be right.

The Guild Name is "Order of the Light" on "Nordrassil" itas an "EU" Server Realm. Thats what i had also typed into allowed for upload list at roster settings.

So what could be wrong?

Check your database in the table 'roster_realmstatus'
There should be an entry for your realm there, if not then we need some further debugging

There is an entry called Server Name but nothing entered there.

Looks like the EU realm status site is down

I posted to a wrong section of the forum, or at least an old post regarding this topic, please could you have a look at this?

It seems the xml feed is gone for the EU realms

We will have to find their new feed

Why do they always mess about with something when it works!

Like the topic says "Typical Blizzard!"

The xml/xslt/js site works fine in US, but it was never quite stable for EU. Apparently they reverted part of it.

Re: Server Status only shows "No Status"

Hi,

I got bored at work today and decided to get the realmstatus to work for EU servers. The fix is dirty, but the result is a fixed realmstatus (check it out on my site).

I had to change 2 files: realmstatus.php (duh) and enUS.php in the localizations directory (I should change fr, es and de, but hell that would leave nothing for you guys :P ).

So let's look at what I did in the files.

realmstatus.php

I changed the xmlmeta's to reflect as much as possible the xml scheme followed on the EU server:
Code: Select all
      $xmlmeta['rootxml'] = 'rss';
      $xmlmeta['realms'] = 'channel';
      $xmlmeta['name'] = 'title';
      $xmlmeta['status'] = '0';
      $xmlmeta['type'] = '2';
      $xmlmeta['pop'] = '3';

I know these meta's are nowhere near what is in the XML, but I wanted to change the original file as little as possible.

Next I had to tackle the foreach loop that takes the data for every realm out of the xmlparsed data and puts it in the "value" variable. As the XML scheme for EU and US is so different, I took the xmlparsed data out of the foreach statement and made this conditional on the chosen realm:
Code: Select all
   if ($region == 'EU') {
      $xmlpdata = $xmlParser->data[$xmlmeta['rootxml']][0]['child'][$xmlmeta['realms']][0]['child']['item'];
      } else {
      $xmlpdata = $xmlParser->data[$xmlmeta['rootxml']][0]['child'][$xmlmeta['realms']];
      }

   foreach( $xmlpdata as $key => $value )

This gives me comparable "value" variables, so I can keep the rest of the program structure. Now the key we are interested in for EU is 'child', so again, we have to go conditional. At the same time I extract the realm name because we will need it immediately after this:
Code: Select all
   if ($region == 'EU') {
      $xml_server = $value['child'];
      $rlmname = $xml_server[$xmlmeta['name']][0]['data'];
   } else {
      $xml_server = $value['attribs'];
      $rlmname = $xml_server[$xmlmeta['name']];
   }

   if( $rlmname == $realmname )

So, now we have the realm name and all the xml_server data we need for the rest. If the server name is the one we configured, then we need the status, type and population:
Code: Select all
      if ($region == 'EU') {
         $rlmstatus = $xml_server['category'][$xmlmeta['status']]['data'];
         $rlmtype = $xml_server['category'][$xmlmeta['type']]['data'];
         $rlmpop = $xml_server['category'][$xmlmeta['pop']]['data'];
      } else {
         $rlmstatus = $xml_server[$xmlmeta['status']];
         $rlmtype = $xml_server[$xmlmeta['type']];
         $rlmpop = $xml_server[$xmlmeta['pop']];
      }

Because of this, the switch statements change as well, to switch on the rlmstatus, rlmtype and rlmpop variables. Also for status and population, the cases change too. For status nothing drastic, I just added "REALM DOWN" to the first case (not checked) and "REALM UP" to the second, but for population I had to be more creative.
On the EU realm status page, population shows either "Full", "Recommended" or "". In the XML data this translates to population being "Full" or "Recommended", but there is no XML data for ""... What happens then is that the next category (queue) becomes population data... weird.
Now there is a way to check which data you are dealing with by drilling further down in the XML scheme to "domain" to see that you are dealing with population or queue, but I am lazy by nature and I assumed that if it isn't "Full" or "Recommended" it is " " (not "" or it will fail the empty check later on).
This also means that I don't use queue data.
Code: Select all
case 'FULL': // <-- added for EU region
   $realmData['serverpop'] = 'FULL';
   break;

   case 'RECOMMENDED': //<-- added for EU region
   $realmData['serverpop'] = 'RECOMMENDED';
   break;

   default:
   if ($region =='EU') {
      $realmData['serverpop'] = ' ';
   } else {
      $realmData['serverpop'] = 'ERROR';
   }

So, that's it for extracting the data from the XML. Now all I had to do was make sure that you get the right color for "recommended", "full" and "" population texts:
Code: Select all
   if ($region == 'EU') {
      switch ($realmData['serverpop'])
      {
         case 'FULL':
         $realmData['serverpopcolor'] = '#990000';
         break;

         case 'RECOMMENDED':
         $realmData['serverpopcolor'] = '#0033FF';
         break;

         default:
         $realmData['serverpopcolor'] = $roster->config['rs_color_medium'];
         break;
      }
   } else {
      $realmData['serverpopcolor'] = $roster->config['rs_color_' . strtolower($realmData['serverpop'])];
   }

I hardcoded the colors for "full" and "recommended" to the same colors used by Blizz, because I didn't want to change the rostercp thingy, because I'm lazy :roll:

enUS.php
All that I had to do was add "RECOMMENDED" and "FULL" to the lang['rs'] array:
Code: Select all
$lang['rs'] = array(
   'ERROR' => 'Error',
   'NOSTATUS' => 'No Status',
   'UNKNOWN' => 'Unknown',
   'RPPVP' => 'RP-PvP',
   'PVE' => 'Normal',
   'PVP' => 'PvP',
   'RP' => 'RP',
   'OFFLINE' => 'Offline',
   'LOW' => 'Low',
   'MEDIUM' => 'Medium',
   'HIGH' => 'High',
   'MAX' => 'Max',
   'RECOMMENDED' => 'Recommended',
   'FULL' => 'Full'
);


So, that's it. I've attached the realmstatus.php file to this post and hope you find it usefull until our dearly beloved developers come up with a nice solution to this problem.

If you are localizing in fr, de or es, please post the translations here for me and others like me (to lazy to babelfish).

Well done :D

I used nearly the same approach, already a week or so before.

When aprinting the new EU XML scheme, I knew that a new, different parser was needed.

Thing could have been simpler, but population info is missing (that time).
I decided to log the XML info of my realm in a file, so could see all cases, like new array being invented.
I hoped that Bliz would re-introduce the pop info, but so far, nothing really changed. Although, my first approach worked (the new parser for EU XML data) but I had to redo the parser twice already.

One big reason to have Bliz stabilize things first (like the Armory :wink: )
