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.

    Sorry morg, I just went for another test run and payed close attention to what happens (also used developer mode and can't see any issues there).

    I've amended the previous post to reflect what actually happens.

    And to answer your question : I do mean the amount of dkp in the member DKP window, not the actual bid scoll window.

    Assuming you mean that when looking at the bid window frame. the order of information is [member dkp window] [scroll bid window]then the need / greed / pass buttons.

    Hmm I will have to check that I didn't think that number should change at all. You do mean just the DKP not the actual bid scroll window right?

    Hey Morg dude. I thought I would post here as it's more appropriate to the problems I have been having. I was having the same problem as MANTYS but the next update kinda fixed it. On first bids, each raiders total dkp is now reported correctly at the left of the bid window. The raiders can enter a first bid with no problems now. When they are entering the next bid though, the raiders total dkp reported, to the left of, the bid window seems to have been set to the amount of the last bid they made.

    So at initial bids the member dkp is reporting fine, but then the members dkp seems to get set to the last bid amount that they made.

    I'm using fixed dkp, bid war. Also using bidstep at 50 and overbid set to 0.

    Changed comm method slightly so users with pre2.8 versions may see some unexpected results with result tooltip. ie it won't pop up when expected.

    I havent seen an item which doesn't show this problem we'll see if this new version fixed it.

    Added a fix for member dkp not showing up.

    But it is only certain items correct? Not all the time right?

    we do see the items and everything. people just can't bid on them because the addon says they don't have any DKP. allthough MorgDKP2 tells me otherwise. so its defenetly the link between morgbid2 and morgdkp2, I've been trying to get an error message but no luck so far.

    That should only be in select cases when the players morgbid has to do a server lookup for the item because they have never seen it before. I will maybe add a way to show the dkp in next update but basically it means you at least see the item instead of a blank lootwindow.

    Morgbid2 stopped picking up the dkp values from Morgdkp2 ingame. Morgdkp shows the values but when I start the bidwar eligable bidders see their values at 0.
