This was origianlly shown in "Talent Spec %" but it's undergone some major changes since then.

SEE A DEMO HERE!

This addon will give you:
Class overviews of who is specced how by showing points spent in each talent tree for all members of that class. The field names are pulled from the database so they should already be localized

Talent Tree Summary showing all talents in a tree and all players of that class and all points spent in a horizontal table. The field names are pulled from the database so they should already be localized.

Talent Comparison showing details of the talent and who has it and how many points they've put into it.

Usage:
Select a Class and click "Apply" to see the Class overview.
Select a Class, a Talent Tree and click "Apply" to see the Talent Tree Summary.
Select a Class, a Talent Tree, a Talent and click "Apply" to see the Talent comparison.

SEE A DEMO HERE!

To Do list:
Change the drop-down boxes from static lists to database calls. (Implemented)<<-- Please suply feedback on how this works.
Maybe - Add user sorting to the tables.
Provide a way to show ALL classes on the Class overview
Better Localization - any help is gladly accepted.

Code: Select all
Change log:
2006-10-16   Added config variable for header font size
      Added config variable for header font orientation -- this only works in IE at the moment
      Added config variable for Tree Comparison column sort
      Fixed query where classes with same named talents would appear in the other classes talent comparison.

2006-09-05   Added some localization for display purposes.
      Updated to populate the lists from database calls.

2006-09-03b   Updated French content javascript.  Thanks sturmy!
      Minor changes to make it validate properly.

2006-09-03   Updated color-coding of talents in all 3 views.
      Updated Tree Comparison to have x/maxrank.
      Added conf.php to contain flag for making character links popup. 
         This is OFF by default now.
      Added localized content-xxXX.js files for English and German.
         Got German from Nenaisu.  Thanks a bunch!
         French is coming soon
      Added min/max level boxes.

2006-09-01   Updated Rogue Talents in content.js with the 1.12 changes

2006-08-31   Found a way to make the dropdown boxes stay at last chosen value.
         This involves using cookies so you may need to clear your
         cookies if it's not working correctly.
      Split out individual results pages from index.php.
      Moved Character level out of links in results.

Very cool! Thanks Dreadpickle.

Couple of little suggestions not on the todo list:

A level range filter, for example, to review only 60's.

Also, having the character name link popup a new window isn't how other parts of roster work, so you might want to consider making that something to easily configure... perhaps just a variable up at the top of index.php that you can TRUE / FALSE for popups.

I could not see a download link in this forum post so I went to the Talent Spec % forum post and downloaded the second download talented_186.zip. I created a folder named 'talented' under the addons folder in the Roster directory. I upzip the files into that folder. I edited the localization.php file to include the French words which was on one of the posts.

However, when I reload my Roster, it does not appear under the Addon options in the menu section.

Directory - Description (Permissions)
modules/Roster - Main Roster folder (755)
modules/Roster/addons - addons folder (755)
modules/Roster/addons/talented - Talented folder (755)
files in the talented folder:
index.php
localization.php
menu.php
TalentList.php

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the link. I went to that link, downloaded the talented zip file, talented[1].20060905.zip, unzipped the file to a 'talented' folder, uploaded the talented folder to the Roster addons subfolder on the website.

When I refreshed the Roster main page, I got this:

When I removed the 'talented' folder from the Roster addons subfolder, the Roster main page displayed properly.

Any suggestions?

modules/Roster/addons
I'm guessing you are using either the nuke or dragonfly port of roster correct?

If so, note that most addons will not work with ports of roster

@zanix - I didn't know that. Thanks for replying to this before I went nuts! :D

@Scatmanicus - I don't know how to port addons but I'll take a look at some of the others that have been ported to see how involved it is. Since I don't run roster inside a wrapper, I'm not promising anything at this time though.

I don't run Roster inside a wrapper either so I'm in the same boat.

I'm not that familiar with the underpinnings of PHP-Nuke but most of the addons that I currently use at one time did not work with PHP-Nuke Roster installs but have since been modified so that it works with PHP-Nuke. Maybe someone can find why it's not working as it looks to be an excellect addon. I'm having a similar problem with the RaidTracker addon in case someone has a solution to that.

Hey i like your addon to compare the talents very much but i have one problem. I have a small homepage and when i'm selecting to view the Talent tree the chart is getting to width. is anybody able to change the php files that this table shows the the player names in the horizontal columns and the talents in the vertical rows. That would be very nice. Because i want to use your addon but i cant display it on my page....

This is caused by the length of the words in the Talent names. I pull them directly from the database so there is not a lot I can do.

I am toying with using a smaller font for the headers and with only using the first X characters. The problem with trimming the labels will come from my only speaking English, a bit of Spanish, and some Japanese. I can't know where the cut off for useful info is.

I'll make a poll on how short is useful for trimming the labels.

Thanks for this great addon. I think it will help me get guild participation as the class leaders will love to use this for learning about their peers.

Looking at the list, it looks like the columns are sorted by the name. It might be better to sort the columns by their position in the tree, so the lower level stuff is to the left and the high level ones are on the right. You might be able to make it optional in a variable in the code.

I've discovered a small quirk in this version of Talented.

here's a link to the issue:
http://www.inkredible.ca/php/addon.php? ... txtmaxlvl=

You'll notice that Forevergal is a Rogue :), but I'm filtering on Hunters/Survival/Lightning Reflexes

It seems that Rogues also have a talent named Lightning Reflexes and the filter is being ignored (or at least in part..)

Other than that - a very nice addition to roster mods.

Soory, I've been pretty busy lately.

I am working on your requests and bugs. So far
- Sizing the headers in the tree comparison = Done
- Allowing choosing alphabetical (current) or row\column sort of the tree headers = Done
- Angling the headers so they take less horizontal space = Almost done. (I've found a fix that works ... only in IE though!) :mad:
- Classes that share Talent names don't appear in the same talent comparison = Done

The first 3 of those will be configurable in the config file. I'll see if I can post what I have here shortly. Including the IE only fix. :mad:

As always, you can see my work in progress here: Meat Vendor Talents.
