About Friends List Sync

Friends List Sync is a very simple add-on that will synchronize your friends list between all your characters that are on the same account.

This means that if you add friends to one character, the next time you go on another character those friends will then get added there as well. Likewise the same goes for when deleting friends. Basically you have just one friends list between your characters now that will always stay up-to-date across all your characters.

There's no options for the add-on, it just happens automatically.

The add-on works with friends list modification add-ons, as it doesn't touch the friends list UI at all.

The first character you log into with this add-on active will create the initial list that will be synchronized from. This means that other characters with perhaps other friends will have those deleted as the synchronization starts. So make sure to log into the correct character the first time you use this add-on.

When synchronizing a lot of friends it will take some time due to the delay I've built-in between each add/remove. If those weren't there Funcom would block a lot of the requests because they'd be happening too fast. The add-on will however tell you when it's done through the FIFO messages on-screen. Likewise it will inform you how many it's adding/removing when it starts.

If you have an empty friends list stored (the one the add-on stores, not the actual game friends list) the add-on will not do anything. This is to prevent you getting your friends list wiped in case something goes wrong with the settings.

Version 1.0.2

  • Fixes issue where the syncing would loop. I believe this happened in some cases because the add-on loaded before the game populated the friends list (which would make the add-on assume it needed to add all friends each time).
  • Slightly increased the delay between each action to be on the safe side for big lists.

Version 1.0.0

  • Initial release.

    This add-on seems to be removing friends...I have be having to add the ones I can remember, which is very bad :(  I did try to report a bug on the curse client but it didnt seem to give me access to do that or something on the page it took me to.  By the way I use 2 differnt TSW accounts for different charactors, not sure if that is why it's happening? 

    Oh yeah and to make matters worse I can't even uninstall it on the curse client I have done it many times when I restart curse it is still in my list...tried going through all the gui folders etc and script bt its not there I guess the curse client uses a different folder than normal ?  Its still loads up and removes friends etc when it syncs when loading the game, not cool!

    I like this add-on a lot, but I have to point out a flaw that comes up. Because of Funcom's wonderfully random disconnect from the chat/community server(s), sometimes you will log in and discover you have no friends list. This isn't in any way attributable to the add-on, but to Funcom. Unfortunately this can occur when you log on/off without realizing it and in the process it can wipe out the friend list (because you were not connected and the friend list was therefore empty at the time of log off). Sadly, the effect of this is that you will log on later and then the add-on goes through and, one at a time, wipes out the friend. You can get around this by manually re-entering each friend that was there (as the add-on is helpful and posts for each action it takes), but it is very tedious and can take several minutes to type it all back in.

    I recommend the add-on, but definitely take not of this possibility. Perhaps a backup/restore button can be added for future versions of Friends List Sync in order to quickly repopulate the list.  Also, it would be nice if the IGNORE list would sync as well.

    All in all, great little app, but the "issue" created by Funcom's community server disconnects is a real pain.

    Yep, the current issues are making this add-on very unreliable and quite frankly I would recommend not using it because of the problem you point out.

    I will however do some updates to it and make it more safe in cases where things aren't quite aligning up, but I need to finish the current update to Deck Manager that I'm working on first.
    Syncing the ignore list will also be included. :)

    So, I think this mod is great, but reluctantly followed your advice after having the same issues as voodooyaga (and everyone else). What if, as a workaround, you made the mod sync friends, but never delete them. Or, only delete them if a user manually deletes them by setting a flag somewhere (literally ask them to confirm deletion).
