Quick WoWRoster Updating Guide

Postby zanix » Wed Jul 05, 2006 1:23 pm

This guide should help you update the data on your Roster

Get the WoW Addons

To update a character, you need the CharacterProfiler WoW Addon
To update the guild member list, you also need the GuildProfiler WoW Addon

These addons need to be working inside WoW

A guide has been made for installing addons in WoW
http://www.rpgoutfitter.com/articles/view.cfm?AID=107

Now you can continue on to
  • Update the guild member list
  • Update your character




Update the guild member list

Now that you have CharacterProfiler and GuildProfiler addons, it's time to get the guild data

First, the character you use to get the guild data should have the permissions to read all the guild data
This means this character needs to be able to view the notes, officer notes, GMOTD, guild info text, etc...

When you enter the game make sure rpgo-GuildProfiler and rpgo-CharacterProfiler are being loaded

Open the Social Window (the [O] button on your keyboard) and select the [Guild] tab

You should be able to just close it and it will get the guild info
But to be absolutely sure the info is saved, click the [Save] button

Information
At anytime in the game, you can type
Code: Select all
/gp show

To see what has been scanned so far


Now completely log-out (it's best to just close WoW)
Open a web browser and go to Roster's update page (rosterdir/update.php)

Click [Browse] and select your CharacterProfiler.lua file from the SavedVariables directory
(*WoWDir*/WTF/Account/*ACCOUNTNAME*/SavedVariables/CharacterProfiler.lua)
In the "Officer Use Only" table
Enter the roster admin password

Now hit [Upload] to begin the update



Update your character

Now that you have the CharacterProfiler addon, it's time to get your character data

When you enter the game make sure rpgo-CharacterProfiler is being loaded

Open the Character Window (the [C] button on your keyboard)

You should be able to just play WoW and CP will try to get all your info
But to be absolutely sure the info is saved, click the [Save] button

Notice how there are red not scanned messages?
This means that you need to visit these areas in the WoW UI to get this info

Information
At anytime in the game, you can type
Code: Select all
/cp show

To see what has been scanned so far


Open all your professions (leatherworking, smelting, engineering, alchemy, etc...)
CP will start to show messages in your chat box about what is scanning

Open your spellbook (the [P] button on your keyboard)
You may need to leave this open for a bit, click on all the tabs once or twice, then close it
Now use /cp show to see if it saved the spellbook info
(If spellbook is still showing not scanned, re-open it, close it, then check with /cp show)

Go to a bank and open all your bank bags
You may need to leave this open for a bit, open all your bags, then close it
Now use /cp show to see if it saved the bank inventory
(If bank is still showing not scanned, re-open it, close it, then check with /cp show)

If you are a hunter or a warlock, then you can scan pet data as well
Call out all your pets and visit the stable (if you are a hunter) Now check /cp show to see if the data was saved for all your pets
(If pets are missing from /cp show, call that pet out and hit the [Save] button on the character window

Now completely log-out (it's best to just close WoW)
Open a web browser and go to Roster's update page (rosterdir/update.php)
Click [Browse] and select your CharacterProfiler.lua file from the SavedVariables directory
(*WoWDir*/WTF/Account/*ACCOUNTNAME*/SavedVariables/CharacterProfiler.lua)

Now hit [Upload] to begin the update
