Angry Raid Points
This addon was written by the guild Angry (US-Illidan) to handle bidding out items in a DKP-like system. The addon itself is run by the master looter and anyone else (typically officers) who will be handling bids on items. Addon comm and chat (bidding) messages are tied to the guild and raid lines, so it's assumed all bid handlers are in the guild and raid (no need to be in the actual raid instance, though). The addon is intended to automate the actual bidding process, and doesn't get involved in other aspects of the guild's points system (players report their own current point total). Bidding style used is: * Only the people belonging to the highest priority group can bid, group priority is: Member mainspec > Member offspec > Trial mainspec > Trial offspec (guild ranks for member and trials is configurable at the top of Core.lua). If all members of a higher priority group pass, then the next-highest priority group can begin bidding. * For mainspecs, the minimum bid is 10, for offspecs, the minimum bid is 1 (also configurable at top of Core.lua). * Bidding is one round, from whoever currently has the least points to whoever has the most. * Normally, all bids must be at least 1 point above the previous bid. However, bidders with less than the minimum can bid the minimum, but any bidder who has less than the minimum points can always be outbid by later bidder(s) if they also simply bid the minimum. * Bidders who have the same current points will have their bidding order determined randomly. Interfacing with the addon happens through the "/arp" command: * /arp toggle - toggles the main GUI window of the addon (this is also bindable in the game's key bindings). * /arp channel, /arp bid, /arp lastcall, /arp reminder - these are the console equivalents of buttons inside the GUI (see below for info). * /arp remove - this allows you to remove a player from your bidding list, before bidding begins. * /arp reset - this resets the current bid you're handling, cancelling it and making yourself available for a new one (console command only, not in GUI). * /arp scale - this sets the UI scale of the ARP windows (/arp alone will show you your current scale). * /arp version - performs an ARP version check for everyone in the guild, displaying what version they're running. **Bid assigning:** after a boss is killed, the master looter will open up the corpse (or chest), which will load in the items from that kill into the addon. Next, bring up the main window and loot assignment window (push the button to toggle it, and if ML is on then you must be master looter). In the loot assignment window, you'll have the opportunity to assign each epic item present on the corpse to a particular bid handler (the bid handlers available will be detected via addon com, and limited to people in the raid). Items will be removed from the item list as they are assigned to a bid handler. Each person running the addon can be handling a bid for one item at a time. If a bid handler cancels his bid (via "/arp reset"), or reloads his UI, then you will need to use the "Reload" button below the item list in order to re-load all the items back in from the corpse (after hitting reload, the next time you have the corpse open, anything still present on it will be loaded back into the list). Any items remaining on the item list will be purged when you open the next new corpse/chest. **Bid handling:** after a person running the addon is assigned to handle the bid for an item, the addon will instruct players to send a tell to the bid handler with their current raid points, and whether the item is mainspec ("ms", the default) or offspec ("os"). You can also send a tell containing the word "remove" to remove yourself from the bidding list of an item you had previously added yourself to. The bid handler should push the "Last Call" button (or use "/arp lastcall") at some point to issue a "last call" warning and inform everyone of the current bidders list. Later, the bid handler will push the "Start Bid" button (or use "/arp bid") to begin the bidding process. As the addon will inform players, bids must be sent in tells to the bid handler, and then will be announced on the configured com channel, along with the next bidder(s), etc. A valid bid is either a number, +x (where x is the amount you want to increase the previous bid by), or "pass". The bid handler can use the "Reminder" button (or use "/arp reminder") to remind the next bidder to put in his bid. After the last bid is in, the winner will be announced and the item/winner/cost information will be added to the "Loot Log" section of the main window. Note: in the main window, or via "/arp channel", the bid handler can configure which com line he uses for his bid status messages (raid and guild are the two options). After all items have been bid out, the master looter can then assign items to players based on the information in the Loot Log. The "Copy" button can be used to get a copy'able version of the log (which only contains purchased items, the DE'ed items are stripped out) so you can paste it into something outside WoW (such as a DKP system). Afterwards, the "Clear" button may be used to clear the accumulated Loot Log. The Loot Log itself does get saved across logins, so if you forget to copy the data out, it should be there in not only your own Loot Log, but also the Loot Log of every other bid handler who was in the raid.
