A message to all EU roster owners : 1.7.3 & Beta V1.9.9.xxxx

Postby tuigii » Wed Nov 28, 2007 6:30 am

edit [this concerns EU servers !]

This means: if yours is shown : UP and ok, the it will stay up like that.

When is shows down, the it will stay down – you can’t do anything about it.

The algorithm that being used has to have at least ONE good ‘decode’ being done to have it stored locally – and accepting the results.
Otherwise, it uses the last know result.
Meaning: yours was up on the last valid check: it stays up.
It was down (because you just installed it – or it synced when your realm was down at that very moment) that it stays down.

Why ?

Blizzard, in all its greatness and ever ongoing quest for progressing decided to change the format of the file that indicates the state of your realm.
These states can be found here:
EU: http://www.wow-europe.com/en/serverstatus/index.xml

These URLs are still valid, but the file being send back isn’t.
The actual parser can’t make anything out of it.
A new type of XML is being proposed, and one of the roster utility files (realmstatus.php ) of Roster 1.7.3 and Roster Beta 1.9.9.xxx has to be re-written partially.

For 1.9.9.xxx owners, a new SVN will be proposed soon.
For 1.7.3 owners, a rewritten realmstatus.php file will be posted.

Keep posted :wink:

Remember that the feeds for each region are different
The US status feed is ok, but the EU feed has been changed

Saw that :shock:

Look at the source of this page http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/realmstatus/status.xml made me understand that the European version is complely different now.

I edited my post above - stating that it concerns only EU realms.
I'll boil a template down, usable for both sides.
