CensusPlus 3.5 Released

Rollie

 
This release updates the TOC number to the current version. It also adds a couple of new features and does a better job at alleviating end of census lag.

Get it here:

Here's the new version changelog:

3.5 - 08/29/2006 - Update
- Updated TOC for patch 1.12
- New commands:
/census take - allows you to start a census via command line
/census stop - allows you to stop a census via command line
- Added a right click menu to the mini-map button to allow you to do common census functions like Take, Stop, and Pause
- Added a player list feature that will show you the list of players for currently selected filters in the display. This list is capped at 1000 players.
- Modified the locale detection to hopefully clear up locale issues
- Added battleground wait time collection information which will soon start being reflected on the site
- Removed the restriction on taking census snapshots while in battlegrounds
- Made efforts to removing the lag created when a census finishes. You will likely still see the lag if you have the Census window open when a census completes, but if it is closed, there should be no noticable lag.
- Added a confirmation box on purge to make sure that is what you want to do.

I am not forcing an update to 3.5 yet and will continue to accept 3.4 submissions for the time being.

Please let me know if you come across any problems.

And just after I finally updated to 3.4... you give us 3.5.

But love the new features offered in it.

Will load it up soon.

Thanks

Hey

do we have to purge our old results before we upgrade or isn't that needed?

Greetings

I ran 3.4 and grabbed the data, upgraded to new version and uploaded it. It uploaded fine and tagged it as 3.4.

The following upload was tagged 3.5 so it will upload the data on which ever version it grabbed it from regardless of the collection.

Still need to track down if it is Census or not, but I get small pauses when it runs, like when it's running the filters on the counts. I need to check it on another system first to make sure, but something to look at.

However the save process is A LOT better.

Depending on the size of your local database, you could see a small hitch when making selections in the UI.

Just upgraded last night. Can I say THANK YOU FOR THE SLASH COMMAND! It makes it so easy when I log on to realms that I'm only there for censuses. I have 3 macros for all of those toons:

/afk Some random babble about how I'm on a secret mission or something and you won't get a response from me ('Cause I get annoying tells all the time, maybe if they see the I'll get less, and I have)
/census+ verbose ('Cause I like to see the status on my census realms, but not on the realms that I actually play)
/census+ take (Used to be /census+ open and I'd have to click on the Take button, but I don't have to any more! YAY!!!)

I haven't seen any other issues with it, and I haven't noticed any processing lag, so that must be a good thing. If I don't notice it, it must not be enough to notice. Let's see what happens when I'm in MC tonight. lol

[/quote:d773b60e60]

Ever since I changed the timer option on it mine's started automatically as soon as I've logged in - I suspect it changing to do that was a bug, but a very useful one as I don't need to manually start them running any more :)

And yeah I'm trying to think of a wording for a suitable /dnd or afk macro - I'm sick of people talking at me when I'm just running around killing stuff in the noob zone while I wait for the census to finish ;) The guy who accused me of being a chinese farmer and started swearing at me for not replying was particularly annoying - given that I don't speak French there wasn't a lot I could have said in reply to him anyway...

Yes, I'm a big dork...

/afk I'm taking care of some important secret business. I may get back with you later, but don't hold your breath.

Rollie,
Did we get a 'confirm' button on the Purge option?
Rollie says:
September 10,2006 at 18:34
Oh, yes! Forgot to add that to the changelog!

Of I found 2 bugs (ok perhaps 1 bug and one kind of annoying thing :mrgreen: )

Now when Census finish the query to the server sometimes in the end opens the Who Window ?!

And today for the 1st the 1st time I saw a bug, Census was doing a census when I was in AV, then the BG WHILE census still was querying the server, after the loading to UC, I received an error "Interface\AddOns\CensusPlus\CensusPlus.lua:1921: table index is nill"
ntex says:
September 14,2006 at 22:36
Now another error when I reentered in AV I thin Census was blocked 'cos of the last eror:

Unfortunately by mistake I click the msgbox so I can't say an exact match, but it was something regarding CensusProfiler
Rollie says:

Strange error. The line where indicated has some modifications on my end as I"ll have an updated version shortly that includes a few more updates, as well as Spanish support.

Glad to hear :wink:

I use your mod from some time, first time I have a bug / problem :D

Keep up with the good work! 8)

P.S: Another thing I notice, although it's regard the database is repeated chars, I had once 1 char leveled to 4 and updated as usual, few months I deleted and started one new with the same name for the purprose of banking , for my suprise this never updated to level 1 again, and though this database used some date of when he saw this char not the level?!

After this I made some searchs and came to the conclusion on the most commons names in some servers u can 2 or 3 chars repeated, let's say for instead that you have 1 with lvl 20 that it's a undead and another it's a lvl 56 night elf, normally if you check detailed info about it, one it's not update from some time while the other it's more a few days ago, so I think we can consider the last - the Active One - but I think it's a bit pain to alter all this to use the date seen on the server instead of level?

Yes, common names have caused some headaches and at this time are still a limitation to the system. I am going to spend some time on this one very soon to hopefully eliminate the issue altogether.

Rollie says:

When I submit data it says that it was unable to determine the version I am using. I know I have the latest version, what's wrong?
99.9% of the time it is due to uploading the wrong file. You want to be sure you are uploading the file located at

/World of Warcraft/WTF/Accounts/####/SavedVariables/CensusPlus.lua

and not the file located at:

/World of Warcraft/WTF/Accounts/####/SavedVariables/CensusPlus/CensusPlus.lua.

Also, be sure you have exited the game before you attempt to upload.
