MorgBid2

Bidtip

MorgBid2 allows a window to pop up to so that raid members can vote NEED, TAKE (greed), OFFSPEC(greed offspec) or PASS on loot in endgame instances. Every member of the raid must have MorgBid2 installed in order to vote.


Please help localize here.


Bid Values:

  • NEED = item is onspec and you really want it (ie big upgrade rare->epic)
  • TAKE = item is onspec and a decent upgrade or you don't want it really badly
  • OFFSPEC = item is offspec but you would like it for your offspec set
  • PASS = no thanks

Continuation of MorgBid with new features:

  • customizable bid texts (ie person running MorgDKP2 can change the NEED/TAKE etc texts to anything they want)
  • customisable fonts/frames
  • dkplist appears in tablet instead of whispers
  • bid results are sent to a tablet instead of raid chat (can disable) and can update as people vote

DKPList:
Format: dkplist [pool] [class/all] [class] ...
If you just whisper dkplist it will return your class only. If you are in a raid it will return the people currently in the raid otherwise it will return everyone of that class in the database. If you are transmitting a lot of data (guild and all) it may take a moment for the list to appear.

If you enter a valid pool it will return the DKP for that pool.


Bid Results: Bid results are automatically sent during the auction and updated as people reply. In BidWar silent mode bid results are not shown until the master looter clicks to award the item in MorgDKP2. If you do not wish to receive the summary tablet just disable it in the options. You can also always show the results frame now even if you are not involved in the auction.(/morgbid2)


Options:

  • /morgbid2 to access
  • Hide hints - hides the hints on need/greed/take hover
  • Use results tooltip - enable to receive (updating) bid results
  • Show ALL results - enable to show results even if you are not involved in the auction
  • Autoclose results - enable to automatically close results frame when the masterlooter clicks the MorgDKP2 award frame
  • Combat lockdown - enable to not have results frames pop up in combat (bid frames still will)
  • Bid result/DKPlist lines - number of lines to show on the respective tooltip
  • Grow direction - direction results frames will populate on top of each other (up/down/left/right)
  • Font and frame options - self explanatory

If you change any setting such as font the frames will popup and you can move them where you would like them to be situated. Frames are designed so when you close one they rearrange and pop into the spot of the frame you closed so ideally you dont have to move your mouse to bid/close frames.

Note: If you have the disappearing result frame problem (only appears first time) then turn on Autoclose results and it will not happen anymore. If you turn it on AFTER the frame has already disappeared you will need to reloadUI.

    using latest versions of both addons, I've set text for need = Mainspec, take = Offspec which is displayed correctly in the list of bidders. I've checked all values manually when people said they couldn't bit higher and they certainly did have the dkp for it. normally when they go to their max value of DKP they get whispered and I didn't see me whisper anything either.

    I think its for Morgdkp2 which doesn't show the Need 50 bid above Take 60. In my situation any Need bid should cancel all Take bids. if you know what i mean.

    I got the error when starting an auction for an item.I'm not the only one in the raid who got it but it seems to be really random. theres like 11 people in a raid of 25 who got that error.

    Did you assign NEED/TAKE etc to be different words? If so what words? When do you get this error? What version are you using?

    What do you have overbid set to? They may not be able to increase their bid because they don't have enough DKP. ie they have 50 DKP overbid = 50 then they can not bid more than 100.

    So your saying in MorgDKP2 the NEED 50 is below the Take 60? or in the results frame of morgbid2?

    lately we're having bugs where during bidding (bidwar) people don't get a new bidding window after being outbid. or it just bugging completely to the point where they cannot increase their bid. also I've noticed that a "take/offspec" bid doesn't get overwritten by a same or lower ammount bid for "mainspec/need" which if I understand it correctly should be the case.

    also got this error: Date: 2009-03-08 20:07:48 ID: -1 Error occured in: Global Count: 9 Message: ..\AddOns\MorgBid2\MorgBid2.lua line 907:

    Localisation is translated on the new.

    Thanks I will fix "true" error for next version. Is there anything new in the ruRU locale you changed?

  • Avatar of mehanic mehanic Mar 03, 2009 at 19:43 UTC - 0 likes

    At a choice of any action there is an error: interface\AddOns\MorgBid2\MorgBid2.lua:1230: attempt to compare number with nil

    Find and fix error in MorgBid2.lua:
    local L = LibStub("AceLocale-3.0"):NewLocale("MorgBid2", "deDE", true)
    local L = LibStub("AceLocale-3.0"):NewLocale("MorgBid2", "ruRU", true)

    For this reason localisations did not work, I have corrected it and have updated ruRU localisation it is possible to load here

    Great morgalm and thanks a lot :)

    Yeah I know that is the issue will have a workaround in a future version thanks.

    Just a thought here but I noticed that the value in the member dkp window on the bid frame is the same as the value in the bid results popup frame. It's as if the member dkp variable used in the dkp bid frame gets it's value from the variable in the bid results pop up frame somehow.

    Which would explain why MANTYS and me got that problem at the beginning of feb with the member dkp being 0 in the bid frame : Since there were no bids entered yet, the value in the bid results frame was 0 so the member dkp in the bid frame reported 0 as well.

    Now at the start of bids the dkp in the results frame is the actual amount of dkp the member has and so the amount of member dkp in the bid frame is the the same. But when they enter their bid, the amount in the results frame changed to the bid amount, so the member dkp in the bid frame when it pops up again is the amount of that bid.

    Yeah that is not really a bug per se. When the initial query goes out the data sent includes the members current dkp. But when they bid their bid replaces their current dkp in the data. So when it is sent back it picks up the bid. I will work on a workaround though.
