    I have experienced several of the issues that others have mentioned. But I have 1 character that no longer appears in the Gera Grinder listings. 3 other level 90s are fine as are all of my lower characters. My DK does not show up. I tried moving the gear grinder lua file and it fails altogether, so I put it back.

  • #96

    Like most, I've had the ilvl issue at times. All I have to do is log the toon and move something in my inventory and then log out and the correct details are saved.

    My issue is N/H SoO counter doesn't show bosses killed when you have a Heroic lock.

    eg: My druid cleared 14/14N and has [14] (red) next to its name. But my DK cleared 4/14H and then the rest on Normal so i expected to see [14], but it still says [0]

  • #95

    The ilvl bug doesn't seem to be fixed after all.  I have 5.4.33, but I'm starting to see the bug again, after that update fixed it for a couple weeks.  I also see wrong profession CDs listed.  (e.g. Bl on a toon that isn't a blacksmith).  These extra professions GG thinks my toons have never seem to go away, they just accumulate.

     I haven't tested to see if DCs or other abnormal logouts are what trigger whatever bug is still around, but it did seem ok for a while after getting 5.4.33 and I think clearing saved data, then logging around to all my toons.

     edit: tested clearing all saved data again, ilvl bug showed up right away for at least one toon.

    Swatter caught a bug when I first installed it, something related to ilvl was nil when it shouldn't have been. No data showed in the tooltip, just labels.

    However, after I logged in on two characters, then it started displaying data in the tooltip and seems to work correctly.

    Re: Gear Grinder Sorting issues

    EDIT: Thanks for the quick fix, I had to cycle through my characters 2 times before it got the iLevel sort order straight, but it seems to be working well enough now. This is one of those must-have addons that  really throws me off if it isnt there. Thanks for the good work!

    I'm not sure if it is just me, but since the 5.4.2 patch, some of the sorts aren't working.

    Alphebetical, Class, Justice and VP Cap Progress seem OK.  

    iLevel is sorting is off, as it seems to not be able to remember the max iLevel when I switch characters. It shows my alts with correct equipped iLevels, but very random max iLevels, and seems to be sorting by these.

    Valor Point sorting causes the tooltip window to never show when I mouse over the minimap button.

    Charms seems to be sorting by Lesser charms, even if I only have warforged seals selected.

    I really use the iLevel sort, as that keeps my 'mains' on the top of the list.

    I did reinstall GearGrinder, deleting the GearGrinder.lua and .bak  files in my Saved Variables folder, and still get the same issues. I tried it on an alt with no other addons running, and had the same problem.

    Thanks for any input you may have.

    The problem here is when you log out.  The command used to get the iLvl used to return 0 on logout.  Now it's returning some dodgy value.

    I've put in a dodgy fix.  See how it goes.

  • #90

    Ive been experiencing issues with Gear Grinder lately with professions showing up on other toons that don't have that profession. 

    The only way to fix it that I know of is to delete the data and reload on every toon.

    Is there a fix going on regarding this?

    Re: Gear Grinder Remove Characters

    I have many toons now. Some get shifted off to other realms, some might come back at a later time, sometimes I just delete em from time to time and create new ones.

    I'd love to be able to remove an entry for a toon, rather than having to edit the .lua file manually each time.

    Any chance you could add this, or am I just missing that option?

    Awesome addon! Keep up the great work, it's very appreciated.

     

  • #88

    Hi, I would love if this AddOn could track all my characters on all of the realms I play on, at the same time.

    Instead of having to relog to each realm to see my weekly progress.

  • #87

    Hey.

    I'm almost sure that on LFR it works this way, but can you make it so when I've killed all bosses from a single wing on flex, the number appears red?

    3 4 3 2 would appear green/red/red/green for example.

    And btw, please don't stop updating this addon, it's just way too good to be forgotten.

  • #85
    The numbers are?

    Under SoO I have numbers that look like this:

    2 2 0 0 [1]

    It isn't clear in the notes what this stands for.  It doesn't represent my locks accuraetly if that is suppoesed to mean lfr flex normal heroic   or something like that.

  • #86

    There are 4 different sections you can queue for in LFR for SoO.  Each number represents a section.  The number in the []'s represents the normal (or heroic) mode boss kills.  Flex mode tracking is coming in the next version (to be released very soon).

    Hope this helps explain the numbers.

  • #81

    Heya Azadan,

    First off! Great addon, I love it. I raid on all 11 classes at the highest level, and it's very useful for me to keep track of all the little things that I do. I have two small requests though, if I may?

    1) Be able to track whether you've gotten your loot coins for the week, in a similar manner to other weekly quests.

    2) Be able to keep track of which Flex runs you have participated in, similarly to how you are tracking LFR.

    Hope to see these features implemented, and thanks again for an awesome addon!

  • #82

    The Warforged Seal quest hand-in is tracked by the red number for the Warforged Seals.  Quest completion is sometimes hit and miss for some reason but it generally works well.

    I have added provision for the Flex raid tracking however I need to get a raid save so I can see how WoW saves your progress in Flex.  I'm a pretty casual player nowdays and not had the time to get a flex raid kill.  I have tried to get one a few times but seems the groups I have been with have been pretty average.  Rest assured I do plan to add it.

  • #84

    Ahhh, that clarifies it with the red number. Thanks! If you are on EU servers, I'll be happy to boost you through them as many times as you need to get the information you need. It'd be my pleasure to support your brilliant addon. I don't want to post my Real ID here, but if there's some private function where you can send me yours, I'll be happy to add you and help in any way i can :)
