Lootster  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.3.2
by: Mackenz [More]

Synopsis
Lootster is a loot rolling interface that allows you to call for and capture loot roll, arbitrate ties and announce winner(s). In addition to managing simple rolls, it also manges various DKP styles, including the ability to automatically record points credited for attendance and debited for loot. For more information see the FAQ that is at the end of ##readme.htm## in the Lootster download.

Features
  • Support for raid finder loot of the same name as non-heroic/heroic loot.
  • Support for limiting wins for usage rolls (such as Called, Main-Spec Need) per raid. See FAQ for information.
  • Support for non-heroic/heroic loot of the same name.
  • Support for the new 10-man and 25-man normal/heroic raids.
  • Support for EPGP loot system. Requires upgrade of the EQDKP/NDKP Export Plugins (3.0.0.0).
  • Support for 'usage rolls', such as main-spec, off-spec, bank shard, etc.
  • Support for configurable usage roll loot costings, including a separate Alt factor.
  • Support for events, such as raid start, boss wipe, bonus time, etc.
  • Support for configurable event point awards for 10-man and 25-man raids for full, partial and standby attendance.
  • Support for automatic loot point calculations based on the Allakhazam formula, including handling of all armor tokens.
  • Support for configurable loot point calculation factors for the Allakhazam formula.
  • Support for 'standby' attendance handling, allowing players outside the raid to whisper standby status.
  • Support for detecting all bosses.
  • Streamlined bookkeeping of loot wins with the correctly costed points depending on usage roll and Alt status.
  • Better detection and separation of instance types, being dungeon, heroic dungeon, raid and heroic raid.
  • Expanded viewing of individual player attendances and adjustments, and easy 'goto' ability to see the initiating raid and boss for the attendance/adjustment.
  • Various simple roll capture modes.
  • Various point system roll capture modes.
  • Automatically record raids, bosses, attendances and loot wins.
  • Ability to easily set and/or override item points.
  • Ability to easily set your own class restrictions on items.
  • Ability to define membership (Full/Trial/Applicant) and toon types (Main/Alt) using the guild ranks and guild public notes.
  • Ability to sort player rolls by item usage, membership and toon type, in addition to the inherent point system priorities.
  • Ability to track the points for Alt(s) on behalf of a Main.
  • Ability to passively 'snoop' rolls and winners, in addition to passively recording raids, bosses, attendances and loot wins, providing 'fail safe' point management.
  • Ability to synchronise raid data, item data and restriction data with other Lootsters.
  • Numerous option settings to control what the addon does and what it records.
  • Numerous option settings to control the various loot systems.

WoW Call of the Crusade 3.2 Heroic Loot Naming
The WoW 3.2 patch introduced non-heroic and heroic loot with the same name. To support existing DKP systems (EQDKP, NDKP and Null DKP), I have chosen to differentiate the two types of loot with a " (H)" suffix on the item name of heroic items. This means that the item databases of those systems should use the same " (H)" suffix so that Lootster can correctly find and manage DKP settings and overrides for those heroic items.

WoW Hour of Twilight 4.3 Raid Finder Loot Naming
The WoW 4.3 patch introduced a new loot tier, raid finder, with the same name as non-heroic and heroic loot. To support existing DKP systems (EQDKP, NDKP and Null DKP), I have chosen to differentiate the extra type of loot with an " (RF)" suffix on the item name of raid finder items. This means that the item databases of those systems should use the same " (RF)" suffix so that Lootster can correctly find and manage DKP settings and overrides for those raid finder items.

Bug Reporting
Please use a good error catcher like Bugsack, and provide the entire error text with as much information on how to recreate the problem. Report the problem via the CurseForge ticket system to ease tracking.

Slash Commands
  • /ls - toggle display of Lootster window
  • /ls resetui - reset the position of all Lootster windows

Language Support
Although basic roll capture will work in French, German and Spanish, the additional abilities (loot capture) will not. Spanish has a partial translation (thank you to PatoDaia). If you would like to contribute a translation for this addon, let me know via private message on this site. You will be given credit for the translation.

Installation
Unzip into <WoW Directory>\Interface\Addons.

User Interface
The user interface is used to perform all functions, and call be toggled (shown/hidden) through three methods:
  1. Using the command line via the /lootster or /ls command;
  2. Using the minimap button that can be used to toggle the user interface;
  3. Using the small Lootster frame that can be used to toggle the user interface.

To reset the various frame positions if they are dragged offscreen, use the command line /ls resetui to reset their positions.

The user interface can be moved anywhere on the screen via dragging the Lootster box. If the minimap button is not used, then the small frame will be shown, and visa versa.

Love this addon. Any time we get new raiders in our group I get asked about it.

otherwise the 1-1000 rolls will be caught by this line and not counted.
Yikes. Thanks will take a look.

EDIT: Verified fix. The fix will be coming in a couple of days to reduce fix churn after initial release. I have created a ticket for the problem on Curse Gaming.

Thank you Sorian!

I may have seen this too, (if it's the same thing).

If the rules text box is empty, it needs to be clicked in order to get the text cursor. But clicking in the middle of the big text box doesn't work.

You have to click in the upper left corner. Right where you would expect the cursor to appear. And it appears.

Hmm that stuff hasn't changed for a while, but I will do some testing when I can. Somethings to note off the top of my head that could be happening:
  1. You have to be in a party/raid, otherwise the rules display will be ignored. You can test it outside of a party/raid by switching on the debugging message option under General options on the Options tab. It will then pretend to send it to the say channel; or
  2. Your Lootster is not Active. That is, you haven't checked the box on the Roll tab that says 'Active'. Checking Active makes you the driver of Lootster and allows you to broadcast rules, roll calls etc.
Let me know if any of that helps.

@Zeranor, machobug and slartibart

Hey guys. Yes the raid warning annoucement has been asked for elsewhere, and I will be looking to squeeze that into the version I am working on now.

As for the main spec/off spec ability, I have been asked for that in different guise and am looking to put it in, though I m not sure about the release I am currently working on (which is adding EPGP and DKP events). However, I can give you a heads up on what I am looking at doing: basically, you would roll for main/off/alt/greed etc in a single roll, similar to the 100/1000 rolls now for non-DKP stuff.

So much to do lol...

yes seconded on the need/greed = Main/off but more importantly to announce at least the initial call for rolls in raid warning...

Thank you for awesome addon

I really love this addon, but I have a question here.
Is there any way to change 'need' and 'greed' button to 'main spec' and 'off spec'?
I'm a raid leader for my guild and we roll for main spec and off spec, so if there is any way to change the text of the button, please teach me how to change. But I understand if you don't allow to edit your addon

This certainly looks like it will help organize our looting better, but.. Can it call items/countdown etc. to /raidwarning?

Howdy,

This is Zedd, the creator of WebDKP. I don't have any problems with you integrating with WebDKP - and I can gladly give you all the information on the file format. I do plan on releasing the website to the public domain, so I don't have any problems with releasing info on the source. If you're still interested in integration, feel free to drop me a line on the webdkp forms: www.webdkp.com/phpBB2

Cheers,
Zedd

But hey, it was a thought. Thanks for the reply!
You are correct - their web site does keep the DKP data. However, they have not put their web site source code into the public domain (like EQDKP, NDKP and Null DKP), so I am unable to write the code that would write the lua file for Lootster, like their Sync tool does (which, at least from the FAQ I read, was the only way to get the data downloaded).

It might also be possible for me to hack into the data loaded by their WebDKP addon, but I am not sure a) its actually accessible programatically, and b) that the WebDKP authors would be sanguine about it.

Hence me thinking I would need a sponsor.

Good luck out there!

Hmm, in looking at the WebDKP web site, it appears they run their own system, so it is not possible for me to be able to write the Lootster DKP tables from their web site. It also appears that the only way you can download the DKP is via their Sync tool, so generation of the Lootster DKP table from their web site may be problematic.

An altearnative means would be for their WebDKP addon to build the Lootster DKP tables from its own (WebDKP ) addon data (which was downloaded via the Sync tool). However, this means that somebody has to be able to do that in their addon - probably them. It also raises a bunch of synchronisation issues between the two addons, which I must admit I don't want to even think about at this time.

Given that you are a GM (or your GM buys into this), I would suspect it might be better for you to float the idea first (the ability to download the Lootster DKP data from their web site, like I have exposed for EQDKP, NDKP and Null DKP) maybe on their forums or such. Depending on how that goes, there still may be some issues between the two addons (bookkeeping loot wins for example, though the WebDKP addon seems to be able to do that automatically).

There might be other ways of doing this, but I imagine having you or yours as a 'sponsor' may get more traction than I would (as some numbnut off the street ) in getting them to at least look at it.

Comments?
