for anyone working on this here is some procedural code that parses my auctioneer file correctly, now you'll have to call the DB and such yourself but it'll get you going. (only had 30 min or so to mess around with it).

Code: Select all
define('ROSTER_INSTALLED', true);
If ($data = ParseLuaFile('./Auctioneer.lua'))
   foreach ($data['AuctioneerHistoryDB'] as $realm => $x)
      if ($realm != 'altar of storms-horde')
   //parse each item
   foreach ($data['AuctioneerHistoryDB']['altar of storms-horde']['buyoutPrices'] as $id => $history)
      $values = explode(':', $history);
      foreach ($values as &$amount)
         $amount2 = explode('x', $amount);
         if ($amount2[0] != $amount)
            $amount = $amount2[0] / $amount2[1];
      $num = count($values);
      if ($num%2 == 0)
         $middle = $num/2;
         $market = ($values[$middle] + $values[$middle - 1]) / 2;
         $market = $values[$num/2];
      $gold = floor($market / 10000);
      $silver = floor(($market - $gold * 10000) / 100);
      $copper = floor($market - $gold * 10000 - $silver * 100);
      $itemdb = explode(';', $data['AuctioneerItemDB']['items'][$id]);
      $name = $itemdb[0];
      echo $name . ' => Market value = ' . $gold . 'g ' . $silver . 's ' . $copper . 'c<br />';
   echo "error opening file";

NOTE: This only parses the history and has the realm and faction hardcoded.

NOT Roster related, looking for Auctioneer display.

I've been thinking about this a little lately and to tell you the truth I don't see a need for it...

In the past when I started my Offline Auction House Check Price System there was a need for a database of average prices and what not... Now it's been over done by many others and to tell you the truth, I have to give credit to WoW Econ for their site and keeping the searches free.

Perhaps someone can contact them and see about developing a roster addon that parses the search string from their site into a search addon for the roster?

Never the less the project imo would be a waste of time.

How about the ability to upload an auctioneer.lua and simply have it add up the total value of stuff in the guildbank. Let's do that instead of a full blown offline AH :)
