  • #26

    I need to know because with the old open raid add on i could use the code that they give me when i press invite everyone from my quick raid group and now i cant, seems like u made it to work only for events now.

    I had been told its mainly for raid leaders, would be nice if it worked both ways so people looking for a raid could get invited through the addon.

    Hey Shadeslove,

    It's one of our FAQ and the reason we are not implementing it, is because we offer that feature already on the site. Sadly since in-game AddOns can't communicate with the internet, we are unable to import this feature in the game.

    Hope you enjoy using it as a raid leader though!

    Cheers,

    this addon looks awesome! if only there was a way of finding out WHAT IT ACTUALLY DID ?! The description part being .. devoid of any such information besides a link for the How-To guide.

  • #22

    Hi Kizeryakuza,

    Did you read the HOW-TO guide? That guide is written to help people who just downloaded the AddOn to get used the it. The reason why it is a link, is because we can easily update our guide and it automatically updates on every download (clone) site.

    If you still are not sure how to use our AddOn you can contact us (as said above) at [email protected] and we are delighted to help you =]

    Cheers,

    Hi Jeremy, 

    Great work on the addon.

    Is there any chance you could look at:

    1. making it scalable (ie so I can read the text!)

    2. remove or enable the command /or to be disabled? (this is the default command in game for other raids like ordos, celestials etc) leaving /openraid or any of the others viable.

    3. look at introducing a comment (or the option to include a comment) such as "this is for flex 3/MSV/FL" when b-tag invites are sent out? Almost every time I get "is this for ..."

    Would you also consider moving the very simple instructions at the end of the guide to the top? I've been asked by others who know I use the addon if there is a less complex guide to read, and the addon is actually straight forward once you master the changes.

    Many thanks for your hard work in making our raiding easier!

  • #17

    Hello Knighryder,

    Did you exit wow, update the AddOn and then start wow again? If not then the errors are because you didn't update properly. If the errors persist please mail me at [email protected]

    Hey, Jeremybell,

    Thanks a bunch again for improving the addon! I have a suggestion on how to make it a much more valuable tool for any RL to manage his raid setup - and really hope you can find some value in it and improve this nice tool (since I use OpenRaid pretty often it'd simplify my life quite a bit).

    In general, addon is a major improvement over the previous one, however there is one design flaw which is even more evident in the new version - it's not focused (i.e. has poor information on) on what RL is most interested in - raid setup.

    Example 1: I've sent btag invites through addon to everyone 1hr before the event. Now, 15min before the event it's time to invite - however, I have no clue how many ppl accepted my invites - if only 1-2 dps missing for Flex - no big deal, will do without them, however, if both tanks still haven't accepted, I urgently need to spam chat or we won't raid on time.

    Example 2: Similar thing goes for managing invites. I've sent all invites, however, it's hard to track missing ppl (e.g. is the last tank just procrastinating and I need to send him a personal whisper or has the addon just not invited him for some reason) - yes, there is a popup for the latter, but what if there are 10ppl on the list, do should I write their names down and go chase them?

    So, as a big suggestion it'd be much better if the core window of the addon would be current information on the status of raid composition with all the other functions (btag invites, actual invites, etc) which could look as follows

    4 groups (tanks, healers, mdps, rdps)

    In each group: list of people from event info "Name (btag)"

    Next to each name 2-3 checkbox indicators: btag invite, raid invite (event status (approved, reserve))

    Now, a brief illustration of how it could work: if e.g. Tank1 hasn't been sent btag invite then his 'btag invite' indicator is empty black box. By clicking on that box you can send him btag invite and a yellow checkmark appears in the box. Once tank accepts btag invite - green checkmark appears in the box. After some time it greys out since this information becomes less relevant. 

    After that, you can click on the 'Raid invite' box to send him a raid invite: yellow checkmark appears meaning invite is sent, if he's on the wrong char then it turns red and shows status "wrong char" on mouseover, if he accepts raid invite, green checkmark appears and after some time greys out.

    Of course, this could all just as well work with 'send btag invites to all approved' 'mass invite all approved' buttons - which will be used most of the time - but now, after you've clicked those buttons, it's very easy to see what's going on with your raid - how many ppl haven't accept btags (so either wait or replace), how many ppl haven't accepted raid invites (click invite again, warn them with a whisper, replace or just ignore it if it's not critical e.g. for Flex), and more importantly which raid roles it affects to allow you to focus your attention on what's more important.

    I believe with this redesign will make this addon from just easing the pain of managing invites of 25ppl to an awesome informative tool of getting the raid setup as efficiently as possible :-)

    And I hope in the most basic form it shouldn't take that much work (although I realize my estimate here isn't reliable)  - you can just list character&btag names in 4 columns with e.g. two numbers as indicators of 'btag invite' and 'raid invite' instead of checkboxes "_" nothing happening "0" incomplete and "1" complete or something similar.

    Minor suggestions:

    1. Combine approved and reserves in data import - separation can be easily achieved via addon itself (e.g. through 'send btags to approved' 'send btags to reserves' buttons.
    2. Select raid only once and in one place (currently have to select in from drop-down menu every time I open addon AND every time I change a tab) 
    3. Add raid status indicator (how many from approved list are in) visible from any tab in the addon: e.g. tanks 2/2 healers 1/4 mdps 5/5 rdps 6/6
    4. Is it possible to be able to whisper btag by clicking on the person's name in the main status window?
    5. Make the raid input dynamic - e.g. if I add 2 more people on Openraid and reimport data, it should update my event within addon
    6. Add more feedback in the addon (for my #5 - maybe it is dynamic now, but it doesn't tell me after I import a new string: "event #123 updated, added 2 healers, 3 rdps)
    7. Any chance to sync addon to the website through your account (so that you don't actually have to import/export anything)?
    Bug: currently, if a person is already in your btag list the addon won't invite him (probably it only looks for ppl with the #Openraid hashtag) - can you please make addon aware of your full btag list, not just the ppl the addon is adding?
     
    Cheers,

    I'm using the beta version which seems to offer a much better set of functions.

    However, it doesn't work from the start - when I copy&paste addon string from the webpage I get the following error: "Please import a string with raids for your currently logged in character". I'm logged on the correct character, but it seems OR doesn't update addon string if you change owners (I chagned from my main to may alt, but in the addon string there is still name of the main char instead of my alt).

    Also, I can't select raids to send btag invites- I click in the dropdown menu, but nothing happens :-( will go back to the old addon...

    Update: after update most of the issues seem to be gone, however, there is still the issue when you make some other char (e.g. your Alt) owner of the OR event - export string still lists your main char as the owner, so it will likely create issues when importing the event to the alt char.

    Sound like I will have this problem too. I setup many raids and then I bring my alts to them, if this addon requires my main, I will not be using beta either. Thanks for the heads up.
