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.

    New version up changes comm method and is NOT BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE so all must update to get bid popups.

    Yeah works fine now, thank you!

    Alright, that was probably it. We were running around Stockades like madmen, so it's very possible that some were in combat.

    I'll try again tomorrow.

    Yeah I think I found the error combat lockdown toggle did nothing so if they entered combat they wouldnt get results even with it toggled off.

    Were you in a raid? And are you sure they updated? :P

    They were supposed to see the items, it was just running Fixed DKP, no bidwar, or whisper bids, or anything like that. It wasn't a full raid, it was just a test run with 3 people to make sure it worked, I went into the Stockades to test it out, and nothing was showing up. They both had the tooltip enabled, so I'm not really sure why it didn't work.

    I'll play with it some more tomorrow, I guess...

    Unfortunately no if the item is not in their cache for whatever reason there is nothing I can do to make the link work. That is what I have always thought the problem was.

    OK first of all were the others supposed to see the item? If you run bidwar silent auction then they don't get the results. Also if they turned off the use results tooltip option in Morgbid it won't show up. And finally (obviously) if they are not using Morgbidv2.0 they will not see it. Do any of those apply? Was working fine in my guild...

    edit: oh and of course they will not see whisper bid results.

    Alright, so I downloaded the newest versions, and there are two issues I found.

    I found what seems to be the root of the "blank item" issue. First, the debug text on that is:

    MorgBid2: Item=NIL ItemID=790 Link=NIL Quality=NIL Texture=NIL

    I've narrowed the issue down to whether or not the other player has "seen" the item yet. Even though it is linked to them in raid chat (Now querying for [item]), if I start the query with just that, it shows up blank. I could relist it time and time again, and it would result in the same error listed above. After that though, I had the other player bend down to loot, (without actually looting) so they "saw" the item. Relisting the item at that point would work as it's supposed to.

    Is there any way to get others to "see" the item?

    The other issue is the real-time results frame. It doesn't show up for anyone besides the person running DKP. It showed up for me, and looked great, but it doesn't work for anyone just running MorgBid2... I took a quick look at the code, but nothing seemed to jump out at me...

    You need MorgDKP2 to initiate bidding etc sorry.

    I use Quick DKP to track in game for DKP. This looks perfect for bidding. Can this mod be used as a stand alone without MorgDKP. How do I make it initiate the bid once an item drops? Sorry for the dumb questions.
