and enjoy :)

If you want to customize the way Genie works, then have a look at the documentation

How to help

    Hi Adjo,

    I'm trying to figure out where the sort order and family settings are stored - I have five accounts, and multiple computers, and want to keep every one sorting the same way.  Could you let me know what I would need to copy to keep the sort settings identical?


  • #507

    i apologize if i missed the obvious, but is there a way for genie to ignore a particular slot in a bag, so whatever would be placed in that slot would be ignored? if not, is it just easiest to ignore an item? thanks :)

  • #508

    it's not possible to ignore a single slot (only the whole bag).
    simply ignore the item in question (/genie ignore [Itemlink] or use the gui) an put it where you like it to be

    Just got a LUA error while playing, decided to come and share it here in hopes the developer will see it.

    Thanks Adjo for creating this great addon

  • #502
    algorithms?; profile results not updating in session

    i remember when using genie before the sorting algorithms did work differently, i have in my notes:

    • if you want the fastest, select Quicksort3
    • if you want a stable one, select Insertionsort

    so just to be certain, there is no longer any difference at all? they all produce the same result? ty :)

    i just started playing wow again, and i noticed something about genie i never noticed before: if i switch between proflies within the same sesson on the same character, the changes will not reflect what changed in the profile i.e. nothing will get sorted differently. 

    only if i reload ui or what i find to be pretty easy is grab one of the items in the rank editor, move it down a couple, then move it back up to where it was, then click the sort button. it now sorts using the selected profile.

    would you like me to put a bug report in? or is this something you are already aware of?

    thanks for keeping this fantastic addon up-to-date for wod, i find blizzard's algorithm to be less than ideal ;)

    @sort without stacking
    use /genie gb move and afterwards /genie gb sort

    @sorting alghorithms
    there's "no" difference


    edit: totally misread dejoblue's comment...

    Is there a way to sort, not stack, my stacks of flasks in the gbank? I have stacks of 3 as each raider is allowed 3 flasks per night from the gbank, or 1 stack per day in the bank permission settings. Every addon I have  tried stacks everything til the max and then sorts. 
    Also it would be nice to have an explanation of the what the different sorting algorithms do.

  • #509

    create a macro with /genie guildbank move,sort(for infos about this command look wihtin the documentation)

  • #499

    Is [ r338-nolib ] stuck in updating or am I not seeing a change in the version number?

  • #497

    how do i fix so it sorts the way i want items to be sorthed? like healthstone on top and then the gear after items i often use then comes item i use some times then blue Bound on equip gear green bound on equip gear and grey items last (but the last one it does) :D i remember i could set up a prio list in a earlyer versone of genie and it was great :D can you put up a "bag" so you can show how you want it? i have tryed to think how i will have it but the genie dont read my mind right att all XD

    Edit: o yeah did just remember another thing the gear i mentioned is marked in Equipment Manager and then gear that is not marked in there shuld be send to lay between green bind on equip and the grey items :D

    i know this is a little late, but i found that removing stuff like the hearthstone from getting sorted by have it ignore the item or slot is very helpful.

  • #498

    Open the ranking editor with /genie rank or right click the genie minimap button

  • #492

    Any idea why it has the option to sort reagent bags on some of my characters, but not all?

  • #493

    I'm running Genie and I don't have any reagent bank options, either.
