About Group Calendar 5

Reporting Bugs

Feel free to report bugs in the comments section at the bottom of this page, but please remove the addon list from your logs. Those lists tend to be very large which makes it much harder for me to read and reply to other posts. I will ask for the addon list if I think it might be important or, better yet, create a CurseForge ticket and include the whole log in there instead. Thanks!

About Group Calendar 5

IMPORTANT: You must not enable Group Calendar 4 and Group Calendar 5 at the same time, neither one will be happy about it. You can switch back and forth and will not lose data in either one by doing so, you just can't enable both at once.

Group Calendar 5 features

  • Compatible with the built-in calendar and web-based armory calendars
  • View and edit events using local or server dates and times
  • Track tradeskill cooldowns
  • Create partnerships for coordinating events across multiple guilds
  • Export your calendar to the iCalendar format for use in external applications or web calendars
  • Reminders for upcoming events and tradeskill cooldowns
  • View events and get reminders while on your alts
  • Easy invite management to track group composition
  • Quickly invite players to the raid from the attendance list
  • Set level limits and duration for events
  • Analog clock with date on the minimap button for attractive timekeeping

Group Calendar 5 is completely re-built around the WoW calendar database. This allows it to work with the built-in calendar, including the armory web-based calendar. Also, because it works with the built-in calendar, your guild members are not required to use this addon since they can use the built-in calendar instead. They will still see your events and be able to sign up for them even if they choose to use the built-in calendar.

There is no documentation yet as I'm still working on development. The operation is similar to GC4, except that events only show up for players you invite. There is a new Invite tab in the event editor for selecting who should see the event and the selection will be remembered so that next time you create the same event you won't have to re-select it.

The multi-guild partnerships feature is different too because of the invite system the WoW calendar uses. To support multi-guild partnerships use the Partners tab in the main window to set up a roster-sharing partnership with a player in the other guild(s). Follow the instructions on that tab to set up the partnership. Once it's set up, the partner guilds will appear in your Invite tab in the event editor, where you can then mass-invite players from those guilds.

Since Blizzard doesn't have any support for mass-inviting players from other guilds, GC5 will invite them one at a time at the maximum speed Blizzard allows. This can take a while for large partnerships and I recommend that you use copy-and-paste to create additional events once you have an event set up the way you want it. Note that you can not copy an event while you're creating it, you must create it first and then you can copy it and paste the copy to a new date.

    Raid Icons seem to be messed up with the new version. They aren't different for each type of raid and all look the same. It was nice when they were all different in the calender view, for quick viewing.

    Any chance that's coming back?

  • #2115

    Thanks, looks like I accidentally called Outfitter from the data channel lib to erase a table. I'll get that fixed.

    The scan doesn't add any performance overhead whatsoever. It only runs once ever and just makes sure that your database doesn't have any long descriptions in it. You should really just read the code if you're really concerned that I don't know what I'm doing though, it'd probably help you sleep better.

    I don't know what "sure hope this starts slimming down soon" means.

  • #2114

    Every time I leave the game with 3.4b1 (exit or log off; recorded with BugSack/BugGrabber):

    GroupCalendar\\MCDataChannelLib.lua:138: attempt to index global 'Outfitter' (a nil value)\nGroupCalendar\\MCDataChannelLib.lua:611: in function `CloseChannel'\nGroupCalendar\\CalendarNetwork.lua:151: in function `vEventHandler'\nGroupCalendar\\GroupCalendar.lua:163: in function `GroupCalendar_DispatchEvent'\nGroupCalendar\\GroupCalendar.lua:249: in function `GroupCalendar_OnEvent'\n<string>:\"*:OnEvent\":1: in function <[string \"*:OnEvent\"]:1>

    And a question: what sort of additional performance overhead does the new "database scan" incur? Scan once at the installation of the new version (preferred)? Or scanning all the time (unneeded)? I'm going to test CPU/memory on the new version side by side with the old soon enough, but if you could let us know before then.

    Sure hope this starts slimming down soon.

  • #2117

    Magtheridon, Serpentshrine and The Eye (reported by CurtisTheGreat)

  • #2124

    Thanks. Just noteced i had a note with 201/200 characters. All working now. :) Keep up the good work.


  • #2119

    Are your notes really long? If so, try 3.4b3 to correct the problem.

  • #2118

    Hey all! I got a problem. I had version 3.3.3. Manual, Guild Channel and in the lowest rank. Some seconds after the syncronization i was desconneted. Too many data? Thinked about it but i just have 2 notes in calendar and else in my guild as the same problem. Is it uncombatible with otehr addons? Tryed it also but even just this one active the same happens. And yes, i checked the problem is this one but every configuration is fine. By the way, i download the version 3.4b1 a while ago but same happens. Please answer soon. If you need more info just say.


  • #2123

    Regarding the DC when sending long messages... Please have a look at the ChatThrottleLib:

  • #2120

    v3.4b3 Changes

    - Added check so that transmission of very long messages will disconnect GC
    instead of disconnect the whole client
    - Fixed bugs in enforcement of message limits
    - Description limit counter now displays the length of the message data so
    that escaped characters are included in the count

  • #2122

    Thanks for the report The bug is that if the title or the description field is left completely blank then it'll get an error when you try to save the event.

    It'll be fixed in the next build, but if you want to use 3.4b3 in the meantime just put at least a space in the description and type in a title.

    Alternatively, if you're a do-it-yourselfer and want to fix the bug right now, edit the EventEditor.lua file and search for "if string.len(vValue)" and change the two occurances to "if vValue and string.len(vValue)"

  • #2121

    I am getting an error on 3.4b3 copied below. I can "/reload ui" to continue but this has recurred. Waiting for synch until checking items did not overcome the error.

    I have the same setup on my laptop computer but have not experienced this error on the laptop. Desktop is an Apple G5 (Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC) while laptop is Apple MacBook Pro (2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo) with the same OS (10.4.11).

  • #2181

    Awesome, thank you.

  • #2126

    Yes, that's already been fixed. You'll find discussion of it farther down in these comments.

  • #2125

    The "Personal (not shared)" section of alerts has an "Other" option that IS shared with the guild.

    I must say, it's rather disconcerting to have one's personal alerts shared with the entire guild.
