    Hi Elkano,

    I hope this is not abandoned moving into Warlords of Draenor.
    It works great, and is vastly superiour to AtlasLoot (Which locks up the client when searching!)

    I've already recommended this to everyone I know, and they love the addon. They've said its just like using the Auction House, except we can see literally every item that is in the game. 

    The only issue that appears to come up is the lack of a Minimap button, i'm not sure if this is a bug in the current version? Leaving the only way to access this addon via manually typing in /itemdb which was not stated anywhere here.

    Since I just updated last month and don't intend to not get WoD, no plans to abandon, either ^^

    ItemDB used to lock up the client until recently, too. There's lots of work to be done for a search and it seems like Blizzard intentionally slowed down some functions if you call them too often...

    Regarding the missing minimap button, ItemDB comes with a data object for use with any display that supports LibDataBroker.
    Since I have no options so far, I was just too lazy to add a minimap icon so far ^^'
    Maybe if I find some time... ;)

    I just pushed a new version to beta status, see "Other Downloads" above or WoWAce.
    This new version is working with 5.x but takes a few minutes to be ready (data object's tooltip will say "status: READY" and search/reset buttons will be enabled). This is due to the items having to be queried from server almost every session. But on the bright side, this now gives access to ALL items :)

    Looks great! Only thing is it  gums up the game while scanning. Any way to make the scanning a manual thing and maybe cache the data in a saved variable until the user says rescan?

    I'm still messing with the values in my local version to get things running smoothly. Like I said in the other comment, I'm still working out how exactly the client does some things, mostly due to hardly anyone outside Blizzard knowing :/
    Also note that it's not really scanning. It's causing the client to load the data from disc/server into the cache so it can be used e.g. for tooltips, filtering, ...

    WOW!!!! I never expected you to get this working with 5x. TYVM Sir!

    Well, by now I know some more again about stuff is handled now then I did when I wrote the last post.
    A large part of the items are stored client-side to begin with but will not be loaded unless queried (~61k). The rest of the items is requested from server and requires that those have been loaded by the server during its current session (eg due to dropping, a player owning them, ...). Unfortunately, it seems like scanning for those can put your client in a state where it wont receive any more item data from the server, at least temporary, which can cause unlootable quest items. Still looking into how to fix that (interface reload and looting then works though).

    Are there plans to continue this addon? I loved having an alternative to AtlasLoot when digging around for upgrades ("Where can I upgrade my shield" is often more relevant than "what drops in this dungeon") and the news about transmogrifying gear is going to make this addon or something like it even more useful.

    I seem to remember hearing that all*(read 95-99%) of the ingame item data is now stored locally as of the 4.0.3 patch. I have not looked into this myself but if it is true this should help you with a work around for the onload issues. I came across this information in an article about the new Atlasloot for 4.0.3. Another great addon. I hope this helps I miss having your addon on my LDB bar ready at a moment's notice to help answer my guildie's questions.

    don't use this until it is fixed for 4.0.3a...
    even though I was resulting in no bugs when it would load according to bugsack with !buggrabber...

    it would sometimes result in a disconnect when loading the character or after it loads you wait 2-3 seconds and bam you get disconnected from the game... over and over and over.

    I checked my errors folder. nothing
    I checked the framesXML to see if it was spitting any errors... nope wasn't.

    on a 5.9 rating scale if you want a hard number for windows rating system...
    I'm not saying its a bad addon, I would of loved it if I was able to use it but at its current version state.. it simply doesn't support 4.0.3a patch.
  • #13
    it will take me some time to fix ItemDB since it seems Blizzard changed the functions to access the cache so it now takes way more time to scan over it :/
    So I'll have to rewrite the scanning backend...

    I have experienced the same behavior as denlee0710 mentioned below. There are two spots where the loading screen pauses. The first is at ~25% full where it pauses for ~3-5 minutes. It usually proceeds past this to 100% loaded, but then stays there indefinitely. What information do you need or steps you want me to perform to aid in troubleshooting this issue? I happen to really like this addon.
  • #11
    Having this addon enabled would cause wow to be stuck in loading screen for a very long time, eventually getting disconnected and kicked back to login screen. Any chance we'll get an fix/update for this?
