BEst Way to Make Change in UniLoader

Postby MrSmithGTW » Wed Feb 27, 2008 12:25 am

HI.
New Member, Just download the Uni Project, and I thought I would ask the Pro's what is the best way to make a small change to Uniloader. I need to Change the Character Name. Should I use the SDK Plugin or change the Uni code.

Thanks for any help you can give

The SDK and the entire trunk in the SVN is not the software you get when downloading the tools from this site.

To get the source code for UU, export the tags/<latest release> branch of the UU SVN.

You can't upload any specific character using UU, because all characters are stored in one file. This behavior is set by CharacterProfiler wow Addon.

To upload all characters scanned in wow, simply check the item "CharacterProfiler" in the "SV List", and that will cause the correct file to be uploaded when it does upload.

So. Are you saying that it is not possible with a plugin to intercept the Character Name and modify it before it sends it to roster?

A plugin for the "modular" UU I was working on, yes.

The modular system is nowhere near finished, so no.

If you like, you can continue work on the trunk, and I'll commit them for you.

I do apologies for my lack of UU terminologies.
Until yesterday I did not know what UU was :)
My friend that runs a Wow site for his guild
Asked me if I could help him, I am a VB guy,
But since I could spell C he asked me to look.

You said

Are you saying that the PluginInterface and the UniUpLoader Plugin SDK don’t work yet?

That if I need to make the change I have to do it in the Core UU.

O, BTW, I looked at your UU project, Nice Code.

Thanks, I don't hang out in IRC much, and I don't communicate with IM much at all nowadays either.

You are correct about the PluginInterface/SDK not being finished. If you would like to modify UU, it would be best IMHO to modify the latest release source code, which can be found in the SVN area called "branch"

"Trunk" is the term I use for the copy of source code in the SVN which is experimental and unfinished.

If you are up to the task, you may modify the Trunk and submit it to this forum. I would then submit your changes to the trunk. If this practice becomes common I would ask you if you would like to be an official Dev, depending on what we think.

This isn't a 'real' problem.
Having dumping CP for every char on every server a different CP.lua file would make manual uploading a crime.

But : with some simple LUA parsing it would be possible to:
Detect if a char in the CP is an OFF -> then include all guild info and guild bank as well - and strip all other chars.
Detect if it's not an Off, just strip all chars.
Then, UU would parse the entire CP.lua, and make n uploads for n chars it found.
A nice side effect would be that it could decide NOT to up chars that are not related to the Guild->roster.

Did this somehow in my EventCalendar (the GEM 2.30 part) - on the server side - using php.
So, I think, with VB, that would be even more easier.

This definitly would handle these BIG CP.lua upload problems when server memory is limited. In a worse case, the upload CP.lua would be ONE a char fully-stuffed, full bags/sacs char AND an entire loaded Guild Bank (6 pages full).
UU has the option to ZIP the files, so it makes uploading faster, but when one want to fight the server memory limit problem, this would be the way to go.

I'm pretty sure NetherPanel supports that.

A utility to automatically split big SVs into smaller partitions of saved data? UU Beta and 1.x series had something called a "pre parser" that did this.

I remember the pre-parser

We used to send just the myprofile section of CP.lua to Roster
